Back for real! No, I mean it this time. 119 & 120

I’ve even worked on updating the behind-the-scenes here! I’ve missed the WordPress community.

So, what did I do yesterday? Well, not much, but *something*.
119:  5 one-legged burpees (right). OUCH. Yes, only 5. My quad was on fire and I was out of breath. Definitely counts.
BTW: I do “strict” variation of a pushup in the middle.  Most videos of one-leg I found had no pushup, except the one on that page. But I did pushups.
Kettlebell: push press (one arm, both sides), Russian twist
5 more one-legged burpees. (right)
stretching & rolling.

Today (120): 30min “walking” at the dog park. We were there over an hour, but counting 30min of active walking since we were stopping and chatting with friends. Most of this 30min was the to/from on top of the levee.
Some swings of the KB.
One leg squats, pistol progression work. Right leg only. (This probably isn’t such a good idea. It will only lead to more imbalances. And “probably” should be “is a terrible idea”.)

I may try to get back to the CrossFit gym on Friday. My partner was encouraging me to go today, but I overdid it yesterday trying to bear weight without the boot and am paying for it today. So, I don’t think I’m ready. Barbell, I’m coming for you. Friday. Time to get my bench press on.
So, why are my 2 days so light? Almost classified as normal activities of daily living? Pathetic “workouts”? So weak?

Well. This is why.

One should ALWAYS wear sequins to the doctor.

“use the crutches, use the crutches”

I think it’s “tolerate.” But, I’m not a Dr.

Any guesses on how many times I’ve used the crutches?

I had a small trauma on Friday the 25th, while cleaning the stove.
Poor Cinderella.

Except a stove. Not a broom.


On Saturday I couldn’t flex, bend my toes, or bear any weight. It was decided I needed to get some x-rays since I had a day full of JazzFest’ing on Sunday planned.
My prize for being good at the Dr. was a boot! YAY! Not.

So, I’ll be doing what I can. Will NOT get down and depressed about it as I know it’s very temporary, not major, and will heal. (lets repeat that, I will NOT get down…).

With that, I think I’m done for today. I shall continue to update here, on the pages at the top: races, food, etc and backfill some race reports! I’m over a year behind…but, if I start tackling a little bit every day, I can get it done in a couple months. Hahaha. Right.

Any ideas for exercises with one leg, that will not result in gross imbalances?
