Leggi Doo

21 05 2012

So, while I was showering today and noticing my leggies were a tad overgrown I decided to shave them. Except for when I say them I mean *it*…. After I completed one leg I shampoo’d up the hair and then went back for the other one….but afterwards I realized it was the same leg. Yep, I managed to completely finish that leg….and didn’t even nice it was already shaved.

Case of the Mondays perhaps?

Hmm anyway I promptly shaved up the other’n and went on my way.

I’ve had a busy few days, that’s what I’m chalking it up to.

ImageFriday we went out downtown to the American Comedy Co. in Gaslamp district. Before hand we went to Friday’s (because it WAS Friday after all!) to grub up and have a daiquiri or two. Then we met up with a guy from work I know and his friend. This kid got into town a week ago and already knows the owner of the club and the owner of the Crossfit gym downtown. He’s a networking fool. So we walk over to the comedy club and see this crazy long line and some bouncers keeping the peace. We walk up and said friend sees a man inside and gives him a nod. The bouncers part ways and let us right in the door. In front of all those  anxious patrons (aka the line I am always in and sticking my nose up at those people with skip-the-line privileges). It was crazy! I felt like a VIP..or famous…or super freakin cool! It was Tom Green that was doing the show that night, we saw him as we were walking in. It was us four, the waitresses, and one of the owners, that’s IT! I got goosies as we headed to the bar to get a pre show drink. And who followed? Tom himself! We said hi to him and shot the shit, you know like regular folk. After a few mins the peeps started trickling in and we all took our seats. The opener was Sarah Tiana, who was quite the comedian herself..lots of cussing..lots of crown heckling. Tom was Hil-arious. He was just like he was in the movies with the crazy overeggagerated looks and tone of voice. He was pretty awesome. After the show we traveled over to the Tipsy Crow, which was a great little bar. Downstairs they had a club like scene and on the main level was a laid back atmosphere with shuffleboard and connect-four, checkers and such. Great little bar. It was a good time, I need to get downtown more often.

Saturday we had a shop BBQ at my place. It was good to see everyone outside of work in a more relaxed atmosphere. We had some steak/chicken kabobs, chips (sour cream and cheddar–uh the best!), fresh cherries, and of course some draaaanks. The best part about having it at your place is that you can drink all you want haha. We played some cards for a bit then I enjoyed the rest of the afternoon.

ImageSunday was the 26th annual Bay Bridge Run. There were 10,000 people at this thing! It sold out at the end of April, I guess it’s a popular run here in San Diego. We all lined up at the Convention Center downtown and the course was up the on-ramp to the bridge, over into Coronado and ended at the park once you crossed over. 4 miles in total. I swear it felt like six seeing as half of it was uphill! I thought my shins would start hurting on the uphill climb but it wasn’t until we hit the downhill last leg of the race that my side started hurting. I kept a decent pace, I wasn’t really “racing” per say. My goal was to not stop…one day my goal will be a certain time I suppose, but this thing was challenging enough! I got around a 38 minute  finish and I was 1088 out of 10,000 overall! It was a very nice day, beautiful out and the views from the bridge were unbeatable! It was cool to be on foot, this is the only day of the year foot traffic is allowed.

Today the charades continued with my semi-annual Physical Readiness Test! I got the best score I’ve ever gotten, and I wasn’t surprised I did well since I’ve been going to the gym and doing this whole “fitness” thing religiously since January. It feels very good to be reaching my goals, seeing results, and having an overall better lifestyle. But I was extremely happy that I got the scores I did. We have two minutes to do as many sit-ups and pushups as we can. I got 93 curls, and 37 pushups. On the run I got 11:09 which is two and a half minutes shaved off of my last run! Man, it was a great day, and to top it off I beat my Chief’s scores!! After the PRT we had a Pizza Sale at the command which was a pretty good turnout. I think we’ll do doughnuts next time though, probably sell better…and if we do it after the PRT =)

Update on the RW3 Boot Camp I tried last week. It was in a dance studio and hot as hell. When I asked if we could turn on the fan -this was after 100 burpees as a warmup- the students looked at me like I had just stripped down naked…and the trainer says, “We don’t use fans here.” Talk about awkward. So basically never mind the fact I thought I would pass out at any moment for the lack of moving air/circulation/120 degree temps, the trainer wasn’t really my cup of tea. Though he did look like Capt America after the experiment it wasn’t really in a good way…I mean, it’s cool you are a trainer..but really? I’m not into it..you gotta know when to stop. But that aside I didn’t really like his training style, which made me miss my old gym.. SO I’m moving on. I found a Groupon for a month of unlimited group classes at “The Boxing Club” in Kearney Mesa, and it is AWESOME. I tried out my first class today, cardio kickboxing. The class size was about 30 and it was people of all ages and skills so I didn’t look like a total fool… I got checked in and my hands wrapped and the trainer showed us newbees the few kicks and punches we would need to know and we dove right in. I was drenched in sweat within the first few mins and it was nonstop punches/kicks/cardio, and it was a lot of fun. I love getting got punch shit in the legal kind of way. They also offer tons of other classes like MMA, boot camp, etc if you’re not into kickboxing.

Hope everyone is having a great week so far. I go home on Thursday and I can’t wait to see everyone and get toasted at the Schoolgirl party we’re having!!
