M had stayed up past midnight (blogging, of course), and I should've let her sleep in. But she was my only hope of getting the shards of plastic out of my eye. I gently shook her awake. Startled, she unleashed an ear-splitting scream directly into my face.
It was that kind of morning.
But after M realized that I wasn't a home invader, she gamely trudged into the brightly-lit bathroom to help dig the torn lens out of the deep recesses of my eye socket. Ah, love.
With a fresh contact lens in place and my wife back in bed, I joined the rest of the 5 a.m. crew at CrossFit Palo Alto.
- Front Squats (5-3-3-1-1)
Or maybe I just need to keep practicing.
- 25 plate burpees / ground-to-overheads (45lbs / 35lbs)
- Run 400 meters with plate (45lbs / 35lbs)
- Run 800 meters without plate
The running, on the other hand, was a hell of a challenge. I was the second person out the door to start the run, but by the time the first 400 meters were done, two others had passed me.
Result: 9:52 as RXed.
