not a quitter...

WOD: AMRAP - 5 pullups, 10 pushups, 15 squats  (As many reps as possible in 20 minutes)
I did 10 reps in 20:39 —went over the 20 minutes just to complete the last set)

Happy I was able to get this particular workout done this morning. It took me a long time to recover from the last AMRAP that included push ups and burpees and I was feeling like I might not be able to do a push up ever again. So this renewed my faith in this particular ability. However, the pushups were still incredibly difficult and I had to set myself just right to avoid the painful scabs on my kneecaps from last time... I feel encouraged though that I'll be able to build on this! The squats were effortless :)

Did this workout and then hammered the 6.5 miles to work on my road bike.

Took a rest day yesterday because life was just too overwhelming. Too much to do at work and lots of swirl, son missed the bus to school, other son heading back to college early this morning —2 days earlier than I expected, puppy playing hard-to-get in the yard, no clean clothes, no matching socks, etc., etc.

Wanted to have dinner with Ian before he left so he came in Hartford and we walked over to FENG where they have unbelievably delicious sushi and hot lava chocolate cake. Had a glass of wine and got caught up with my son :).

I will NOT take a rest day tomorrow as I've had two already this week and really want to get on top of my plan.
