Evie is obviously ready for CrossFit. She can do what her daddy can't do. Just look at that perfect L Pull-up. My CrossFit workout called for those, but after trying one, I was done. So CrossFit had to be seriously modified today. But on the plus-side, my run this morning was fabuloso.
Run: 3 miles (25.00, 8:20 pace)
CrossFit: 20 minutes of rounds completed: 5 Box Jumps, 5 Jumping Pull-ups, 10 modified Knees-to-Elbows (8 Rounds + 5 Box Jumps)

It's hot and humid when running, so I am a bit slower here. But hey, it's summer, so I ought to get used to it. It's not like Chicago's any different.

I also had the chance to meet a character from a book I asked my wife for Christmas. As I was walking around some booths, I saw a man who was wearing a t-shirt that advertised that he had run marathons in all 50 states. That rung a bell with me and recognized his face as the author of Our Life on the Run. Marlin Kessler set out to run a marathon in all 50 states, but it wasn't all for his benefit. His children live with learning disorders and struggle within the schooling that they receive. So in order to make their learning more real and tangible, Marlin takes his family to these marathons in order to see the U.S. and experience some of the places and events that they learn about in school. It is a fascinating read, and I highly recommend reading it.
All in all it was a beautiful weekend in the city!
Run: 3.2 miles (27.31, 8:35 pace)

3 Rounds for time of:
Walking lunges for 75 Ft.
35 Back Extensions
This is a shortened version of the original CrossFit posting of 5 rounds, 100 ft. lunges, 50 squats, and 50 back ext. All I have to say is my legs were shaking uncontrollably for at least 15 minutes after this workout. Walking down stairs will be a real treat today. But to tell the truth, I can't wait until I get a repeat of this workout. Please, try this one!
