Birthday Recap and Plan for the New Week
Tuesday, September 06, 2011Yeah this is my third blog today, sue me.
If I dont take care of this blog now, I may never get to it and I only enjoy procrastination in moderation.
Saturday morning, woke up and spent an hour stretching, had a sexy breakfast and donned my workout clothes and headed out to St. Mark’s Place and the spinning cube to wait for Joshua and head to KMart to look for manly workout shorts that dont come down to his knees.
Ended up spending a bit of time in St. Marks Place so here are spinning cubey pictures
Then it was on to the bouldering wall, which was way tough considering there are no harnesses, no flourescent handy things to hold on to, a distinct outward slope, no handholds within 4 feet of the top (that anyone could find). Joshua almost made it to the top, whereas, I made it to the bottom several several times.
My knees are banged and bruised to hell, my elbows too. My upper body is so sore that I was having trouble getting my water to my mouth and other simple locomotor events like brushing my teeth, I exaggerate you not.
Every time we fell, we clambered back up. We did, at one point, stand between a punching bag and a crate of boxing gloves and seriously consider beating each other bloody… but that’s a blog for another time… BWAHAHAHAHAHA
Thing is, now we are addicted to this daggum wall.
We are checking out lessons, listing all the places that have these things in our area and pulling on all our connection strings, esp @ Chelsea Piers & NYHRC. This is simply our newest addiction. We want to get as good as we possibly can, and we want to feel like we are bursting with pride once our abilities start increasing.
Also, we are going to try to get a bunch of friends of ours into to… but not until we’ve gotten really good at so we can be a bit cocky :P
Next… Joshua surprised me with tickets to see Incubus at the Nikon Theatre on Jones Beach (15,000 people in front of a HUGE stage with the Atlantic Ocean behind it and the most amazing cool strong breeze off the coast - le sigh - perfection!)
Flash forward through random bouts of inebriation and DOMS and you will find Jen and I spending a couple of hours running the circumference of Ground Zero, which Ive been looking forward to doing for a very very long time!
