Hello from Kentucky!
Two of my coworkers and I are currently out of town for an audit in Louisville. We flew in yesterday afternoon and had a few hours to relax before heading to dinner.
On the way to find a restaurant, we pull up to a stop light and see this creature!
Ohh ya know, just a guy taking his GIANT TORTOISE for a walk. No big deal.
Anyways, we stumbled on this brewery and smokehouse, Against the Grain, which is located in a section of an old, renovated train station.
I ordered the pulled pork sandwich which also came with coleslaw and their house barbeque sauce (left). They also offered several other kinds of sauces so I chose a vinegar-based sauce called Carolina (right) for some variety. Everything was delicious!
Crossfit Louisville East
Since I don’t have to be at work until 9:30 am this morning, I decided to drop in a local Crossfit box to get a workout in.
Generally, Crossfit gyms allow people to visit while out of town without being a member. I had the choice to pay a small fee or buy a shirt and workout for free.
Definitely went for the shirt! 🙂
Today was their “rest day” which I later found out was anything but! I now realize the coach meant no heavy lifting. We started off with a warm-up of jogging and sprints. Although my foot is still a bit sore from the half marathon a few weeks ago, I decided to try running a bit and good news, no pain! 🙂
Then came “Annie” consisting of double unders and ab-mat situps. The exercises are split up into 5 sets of 50-40-30-20-10 reps each. (i.e. 50 DUs, 50 sit-ups, 40 DUs, 40 sit-ups, etc.)
AND THEN came the actual WOD:
- 10 wall balls
- 5 burpees
- 10 kettle bell swings
10 rounds each
I was a sweaty mess at the end but as always, I felt amazing!! Now time to get ready for work. Have a fantastic day!
