my boss, fewstaaaaaaaaaaaa, retired on friday. i'm afraid to think of what's going to happen up there now, but i guess time will tell. i arranged for miss liz'bet from the scrapbook store to do up a photo for her of all the fitness staff. she did a great job as usual - with a chocolate theme - mmmmm chocolate - and it turned out really well. here's a pic of jessy, lori and i goofing around . . .
and now seriously, in the past 8 days the boys have made me do 327 burpees!!! just cuz i broke my toe, and couldn't do them for 5 weeks doesn't mean you have to all of a sudden kill me with them! and to add insult to injury, 62 of them had a 20" box jump thrown in at the end! dillon!!!!! wait, as if that's not enough - 'here kendra - take a 40lb dumbbell in each hand and walk around the building 3 times - that's 400m each - and in between, do 25 burpees.' stoopid farmer's walk indeed . . .
friday was a good day - i managed to run on the trail for an hour. first 'long' run since i broke the toe. still not sure i can make ohio though. that's quite a ways short of the anticipated 6 hours i figure it'll take me to run this thing. am going to try a bit longer today, and see how it feels.
big group at 'friday night club'. and holy crap, fedon managed 455lbs for his 3 rep max deadlift! OUTSTANDING ! even had an appearance by the lovely mrs. p . . .
and this was the order from coach spaff on saturday . . . "hopefully the weather is good today as i'd like to see you get in a solid 3 hr ride. if it's nasty, it would still be great to see you get out there. and, ps . . . don't play the princess card. you won't melt." hmpff ! and my clients say i'm mean ! anyways, the weather gods were in my favor, and the temp was fine! so i saddled up the misfit and putzed around in albion for the designated time. ran into wayne and the booton who gave me a hard time about my beloved single speed - especially the handle bars! what's wrong with my handle bars??? i don't care if they make me look like an old lady rider - i wouldn't know the difference anyways !! and besides, they have a really kool name . . .
alrightee, i'm procrastinating - time to get out for a run. the flurries have stopped and i figure i had better get moving. AND it's not yet november, so pylon rules dictate shorts - no problem!
