Monday was as usual, my busiest day of the week. I have check-ins with my online clients, food prep for the week, two training sessions, a weekly quiz in math and a Chemistry Lab. Its always a hectic day, but I enjoy jumping feet first and getting the week started right.
Tuesday was a little more low key. I had an extremely long lifting session that included Olympic Lifting, full body isolation work, abs and ended with HIIT training,
Wednesday was a tough, but exciting morning. After almost three years of coaching CrossFit at Aviano AB Italy, today was my last day. I have spent the last two months preparing and working with new coaches that are hungry and excited about stepping up and making certain that our program continues to grow. I am able to leave knowing that my athletes are in good hands and will continue to advance in the hands of qualified, enthusiastic coaches.
This being my last year in Italy, I have many goals that need full attention in order to be acheieved and I am beyond excited for the next six months and whats in store.
Thursday began with a morning training session of Deadlifts and Power Cleans followed with all day Chemistry Labs.
Friday was a complete off day to rest up for Saturday’s Super Spartan. My first race for the 2017 season.
Race Day Essentials: Coffee. Medium Chain Triglycerides. Protein. Bananas. Trail Runners. Go Pro Camera.
This was my 2nd race in Italy. Last years Super was held in Milano, and while it was beautiful, this race was by far the most breathtaking scenery of any race to date! The course began in the town of Orte, which reminded me of a miniature Venice, and then led us up through the mountains where we tracked through Vineyards and farms filled with Lama and goats and chickens. It was amazing. I have to admit that I was subject to one set of burpees this race due to the fact that my spear throw was Shit! I was excited to see rope climbs within the first few obstacles, ensuring energy was in tact (seeing that it has been raining 3 days straight and everything was coated with mud…3 folds!) There were a few new obstacles this race that were definitely testing, and I LOVED it! I’m pretty sure that I am losing a couple of toenails after this one, but other than that just your typical bumps and scrapes 🙂
Sunday (today) is spent catching up with Netflix 🙂
I hope you all had a wonderful week!
Now that I am in the final week of one class and my hour from 0530-0630 is freed up, I will be more diligent at making daily posts. So i would love to hear any topics of interest 🙂
Have a wonderful Sunday-Funday!!
