Yep, post workout donut. Sometimes you just gotta have a gluten free sprinkle donut. Especially when my friend Katie is in her off season of training for Regionals. I like that Katie.

I’ve had some people, probably at least a whopping three, ask me to post a little more about my workouts. They’re pretty easy to find because most of the time, when I’m not traveling, I’m just following workouts from my gym CrossFit Broadway. I don’t like coming up with my own workouts unless I absolutely have to. This is pretty much the only place I like to be told what to do. I don’t have to think about much, I just turn my brain off, lift a little, breathe really hard, sweat more than I knew possible, then go home after an hour. When I started doing CrossFit 4 years ago, that was what seemed so attractive about it: you work out for less than an hour, you sweat like a wilder beast, you look great, and then you’re done. It’s awesome. So that is what I’ve stuck to for 4 years. After competing for 3 of those years, now I lift a lot lighter, I only workout once a day, and I rest whenever my body tells me to.

The more I do these posts, the more I hope to incorporate some pictures of the workouts. But I personally feel a little weird asking the coach to get a picture of me when I’m not looking like hangy dog balls, instead of paying attention to the other athletes working out. So for today, all you get is a post workout donut picture. Ugh. I suck.
