hsifeng: (COFFEE!)
So, last night at Crossfit kicked my hiney something fierce. Lots of sore muscles this morning, and staying up late to greet the hubby when he got in from his 12 hour shift (at 11:30 PM) probably didn't help since I had a 6 AM wake-up this morning.

This day needs more caffeine. Stat.

So, what did I do for workout fun last night?

Wednesday, March 27th- Crossfit:
March 27 - Board - Crossfit

1 Minute WOD (Workout of the Day): Reverse Hypers - so K did 49 of these in one minute when she came in for a morning session. How many did I do? ZERO. Due to overcrowding in the class (we had about 25 folks last night) there was no way to rotate through the GHD equipment efficiently for our group to do the WOD. I realized this morning that I could have done the work *by myself* at the close of class, and will do so next time. It is worth it to me to see how I stack up against the ladies I feel I am closest to in fitness level in the gym.

Because of the size of the class, we split up and did each half of the overall workout in two groups. My group started with...

Met-Con: This was a 10 minute As-Many-Reps-As-Possible (AMRAP) of the following series. I completed 7 full rounds, plus another round up through all 10 of the KBS's. I did the proscribed (Rx) weight and height on all items. I rocked this session!
10 Kettlebell Swings (KBS): 16 kg KB.
10 Box Jumps: 20" box used.

10 Sumo Deadlift High-Pulls (SDHP): 16 kg KB.

Power Cleans/GHD Sit-Ups* Complex: The first set of back squats was used as warm up. It was confirmed that they will be doing max-weight testing in a month or so, but I am still using my warm up's to establish my final weight at this point. Not the most efficient model, but there you have it. The next 4 sets of 4 reps at 75-8% were done in alternation with the GHD Sit-Ups**. I ended up stacking weight the whole series, trying to establish my correct percentage. At the top I was doing 35 kg; since this exercise uses a minimum of legs (this clean version is not a squat, so very little momentum exists to assist with the weight - mostly you are using your 'shrug' and arms to get under the bar) I am not surprised that my overall weight was lower.

*Dude! We Just Did These On Tuesday. *ouch* My lower back, she needs work. *chuckle*
** At least I didn't whack my arm this time... ;)

Thursday, March 28th - SRC Group Run:

Last Week: 5 Miles/43 minutes = 7 mph pace
My goal is to keep the distance at 5 miles, but shorten the run by upping my pace. We'll see what actually happens... ;)

This weekend we're heading to the coast, I anticipate yoga in the mornings and a lot of this:
hsifeng: (Team Winchester)
This isn't going to be a long post. For those of you that know, I am a part of the 'Cult of Supernatural Watchers'.

...aka. The Family. aka. Fanfic Addicts Club aka. Those Bat Shit Crazy People Who Seem To Have Lost Touch With Reality...

A couple years back I indoctrinated my sister, [ profile] qafhappy, into the Cult. Hey, if I get enough of you there is a *toaster oven* in it for me! :D At any rate, [ profile] qafhappy is an old hat at fandom and a fast learner to boot. In no time at all she got me in on the ground floor of the Best Plan Ever. This plan involved her and I, five days, a suite at the Rio, six-packs of beautiful boys (and girls!), and enough liquor to choke a shark.

Like I said. Best. Plan. Ever. ;)

It resulted in moments like:

1) Working out with Matt, who I apparently intimidated with my focus at the gym (which he voluntarily expressed later in the day - since neither of us bugged him at the time we were all sweating and groaning in the gym - sadly not as sexy as it sounds *chuckle*);
2) Getting to tell Jared's mom that she and her husband did an great job of raising a truly amazing human being;
3) Letting Sam, Emily & Julie know that not all fangirls have weird issues with the women on this show (and that some of us REALLY wish that Kim and Sam F could have joined the party as well and have designs on making Creation include them in next years event!);
4) Telling Misha how much all his non-actor antics mean to me (GISHWHES, H2H, etc.) and having him unable to formulate a cohesive response and instead throw his napkin in my drink (which really, made total sense as a reaction from him);
5) Watching Ty dance on a table, and generally getting to see his first SPN Con acted out in living color #Rum&Coke;
6) Watching Sebastian & Ty play the 'Who Can Act More Like An Out Of Control Sex Addict' game (they are both actually lovely, just a little competitive);
7) Enjoying an entire Con featuring a live-and-on-stage band that *every* guest exploited to hilarious advantage (seriously, they will never be able to host a convention without a band again);

Speaking of music. Both karaoke and the Louden Swain concert were awesome. And gave me the opportunity to help make things like this happen:

[ profile] qafhappy and I were right at the front of the stage and Rob was standing right in front of me with his normal 'Am I Supposed To Be Here, Is Anyone Gonna Notice Me Standing Here' guilt-look on his face (which only disappears when he has his guitar in hand and a mic to sing into). I looked up and put my hands in the air and yelled, "Surf!" He looked both shocked (that I had noticed him there?) and worried (also a normal sort of look for him) and then pointed at his chest with that, "" expression. I said, "YES! How many chances are you going to get to do this?!?"

That was it. He turned around and, with one final glance over his shoulder (I suspect to make sure that everyone else was putting their hands up and hadn't secretly parted like the Red Sea behind him) he fell back and we bounced him back a few rows and then managed to get him back to the stage before the less-than-athletic-arms of geekdom dropped him in exhaustion.

As soon as his feet hit the stage he whirled around and BEAMED! grabbed a mic and practically squealed, "That was the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me in my LIFE!"

Yep. Even to a Hollywood guy - cool new life stuff is cool new life stuff.

Glad I got to help with that Rob. Rock on little buddy!

[ profile] qafhappy thank you SO MUCH for taking me along on this little venture. Looking forward to next year sis! :D
