I started off today with dragging my sore body out of bed.
After a two month hiatus from crossfit, after my last Half Ironman (where I cut an hour and 15 minutes off my PR), I returned to the box yesterday. A good workout, but I was slow. Today we had a Hero Wod. The Hero WODS are usually long, and really push you. It's about finishing and doing your best.
I have our meal purchased for tomorrow--ham, blackeyed peas, collard greens, and cornbread. A southern New Year's meal. Gunner had never heard of it before he met me.
Starting in 2014, I am going to do the Whole 30. 30 days of no processed foods, no sugar, and no alcohol. Oh dear! I need a kickstart though to get back on track. The rest of the family by default is going to go through it as well. Gunner is less than excited, Em wants to be vegetarian, Abs said "gross", and Jr just insisted on a can of beans every day. I can't please them all I suppose.
Our Christmas was amazing! Everyone was happy with their gifts, and I got a new tri bike! Time to sign up for a few more half ironmans, and start riding again.
I think I am going to go pile my sore body on the couch and relax for the next few hours till the New Year....if I make it that long!
Happy New Year to you and yours!
