Before I talk about my workout, I wanted to mention the greatest thing I have ever seen. Here it is:
That's right folk; that's the wienermobile. This beautiful piece of machinery even had its own vanity plates. Clearly, I was a little excited, but I didn't get to go inside. They had it open, but I didn't want to wait in line, and the ony ones going in were little kids... I didn't want to be THAT guy. Gotta say though, the WM was pretty plush from what I could tell. Be jealous.
Aside from wienermobiles, I did get myself some solid exercise since my last post. Something about showing such a vulnerable side to myself is refreshing and motivating. There is no way I will ever go back to that person; I don't even know who that person is anymore. Saturday I went for one of my best runs since Tough Mudder. I went 7 miles with very little pain in my knee during or after. I am getting more and more hopefully that this wont be a long term or lifetime thing.
Today was a mixed bag. The gym was pretty busy, so my favorite machines were taken. I ended up watching Man On A Ledge in the cardio theatre while doing an hour on the stairclimber. Let me tell you, if you haven't had the pleasure, but the stair climber will tear you up. I was literally soaked in sweat when I was done, and I loved every second of it. In miles I did about 7, but in sweat I did about 13. I followed that insanity with some core and weight work. I didn't have a whole lot of time, as I have been putting my emphasis on cardio, but it felt good.
On another side note, I looked into becoming a Crossfit instructor. I would love to be able to teach some kind of class on evenings and weekends. I just don't know if I can stomach or afford the $1000 upfront. I will have to look around at other certifications. I may also need to get into some classes at my gym and see what is what. I am so used to doing my own thing, it might be good to change things up.
How are you all starting off your weeks?
Who has seen the wienermobile in all its glory?
Anyone know anything about getting certified for crossfit? Do you know of any other good certifications?
