Another quickie...

One hour walk last night, at a fast clip (about 4 miles?) KB workout today, with Bryan, which slowed me down a bit. It was a mish-mosh of a workout, with sets of swings, snatches, farmer's walks, C&P, windmills, and lots of starting and stopping to correct his form (it's been awhile since he's swung consistently.) So, my total reps were 500. It's really hard for me to swing with anyone, I think it's because I 'get in the zone' and don't like to be distracted. But if I want to get certified, I'd better get used to it. I think next time, I'll have a routine planned out ahead of time, to cut back on the false starts. I placed an order for a second 8kg, my Mother's Day gift! I'm looking forward to double swings, double cleans, double snatches, it'll be fun!

Not much else. Tyler started his growth hormone shots, and he administers them himself, and he's doing awesome! It doesn't seem to faze him at all. School is almost out, just a few more weeks, which is hard to believe. The year has gone so quickly. Summer will be here soon, and we'll have our lazy days at the pool. I really hope Dad is well this summer. I hope he's still alive for my birthday (July 27th) and Addie's (August 6th). I know I will have many holidays and birthdays without him, and I can accept that, but I want at least one more of each. 

Oh, and we went to the Highland's parent's Cinco De Mayo party Saturday... holy shit, those parents know how to party! It was a rocking good time, and it was nice to get my mind off cancer for an evening.

That's all here......

jeez I forgot your birthday is the same as Drew's! Also Alex Rodriquez, or A_ROD as Drew calls him, shares that birthday. :)

Enjoy the new KB! Two is definitely better than one!! You keep swinging girl. Before you know it, you'll be at the RKC and lovin' it!

Jenny, he's a Leo, too? Oh, poor you! Drama queens!

Amy, I've wanted a 'matched set' for awhile - after this, I'll get another 12kg. Like you, unless I lose about 12 pounds, I'll have to get certified with the 12kg. Yikes!

Amy said...

Unfortunately I had to get certified with the 16 kg!! It was a breeze, actually since I had a great trainer to prepare me.

Christine said...

Okay, that's just horrifying to me.... I only rarely (if I'm feeling sassy) swing the 16kg, anf even then, not that much! Yikes

If it makes you feel better, I'm a big girl. I'm 5'11" and 160 lbs. I should be able to handle 16 kg. Now, successfully completing a pull-up - that will take a miracle!

BTW - your post above about the aunt from hell had me peeing my pants. You're a riot!
