Today's WOD: Mini Kelly
5 rounds of:
Run 200 meters
15 box jumps
15 wall balls
Time: 19:18. Last one done. I think everyone was finished when I started my last round. But I felt good about it anyway. I beat 20 minutes! Today's workout definitely kicked my butt. I have a lot of writing to do today - hopefully the workout got the oxygen flowing to my brain.
Today is Pattern Wednesday, and today's pattern I like is: Corazon mittens
From Knitty Winter 2006 issue
Designer: Joeli Caparco
I'm currently making these in blue and green for a colleague at work. I think you might need to use white or black to get the pattern to really contrast like in the picture. So the pattern in the blue-green pair might be more subtle, but the checkerboard pattern on the palms looks really cool already. I'll show an in progress picture soon.
Didn't mean to frighten anyone (Mom) when I said I was feeling low yesterday. Just frustration at work and a few other things. Maybe the winter doldrums too. I'll pull through!
Maybe I can beat the blues with some new shoes. I ordered them last week (prior to Tim's running shoe rant). They're Adidas indoor soccer/turf shoes but not sambas because I found other ones that had pink on them, and that was a priority. I hope they arrive soon. James, I took your recommendation seriously because you do love your converse, but I wore chucks in high school for a while and the flashback danger was too high, plus I wanted something cuter and more girly. Hope you're not offended, I did consider it.
Oh, and I hope Frances the mountain lion doesn't steal them off my porch. I haven't seen her tracks in the driveway for about a month now, but she's been getting herself into some trouble lately:
