I mentioned yesterday that I love hill work, and especially repeats over a hilly steady run so yesterday was just a lot of fun for me. A little muddy but as long as it’s outside, I’m good 🙂
At one point I saw a park with some brand new workout equipment which was really neat.
So obviously after my run, I went to go attempt some pull-ups. Attempt is the key word here. Still can’t do even one unassisted. Major goal.
And after a healthy dinner the night before, I was definitely ready for some tacos!
Sorry I didn’t make them all pretty. My dad mailed me an article from the Washington Post with food photography tips…I think he’s telling me I need to up my game for you guys. Oops.
Do you guys realize the Olympics starts in two days!? Some of the things I’m most pumped for:
-Women’s bobsled. GO LOLO! I just think it’s amazing that she got knocked down twice in her most major career track events (fell down once, finished 4th and just out of the medals once) and has chosen to completely reinvent herself as a winter Olympian and has a real chance at a medal. So cool. Never give up.
-All the snowboarding. I love snowboard cross (and ski cross) because it’s vicious and unpredictable. And the halfpipe is just downright fun. Shaun White always brings the most ridiculous tricks, I can’t wait.
-Shiffrin and the female skiers. I seriously watch the Alpine Skiing world cup events every other weekend. I love watching skiing.
-Figure Skating! Obviously. I prefer the men but love both singles competitions.
-Biathlon. Don’t ask me to explain this but I love it. And I love love love that story of the girl who gave up her Olympic spot to her sister. I truthfully don’t know that I would have ever done something like that.
Seriously, I love all the Olympic events (except maybe curling haha) so I’m dorkily (not a word) excited for the next couple weeks but these are the events I will absolutely 100% tune in for. I’m actually super busy today and tomorrow getting a lot of reading done so I have more time to watch the Olympics next week. Totally normal.
Are there any Olympic events you don’t like?
What’s one exercise you’re not very good at or you’d like to improve at? I can do a lot of push-ups but I seriously cannot do a pull-up to save my life.
