Friday 11/14

"May the force be with you"

Time of 24:16

So I tried to do "Annie" on Thursday, and I was about halfway through it when I was asked to stop by an employee of the Planet Fitness gym. I was informed that I am not allowed to bring in any outside equipment (i.e. a jumprope). Here was the situation, it was about 3:00 and there were maybe 10 people in the whole gym. I was in the very back corner of the gym where no one was at, doing my double unders and situps. I don't get what their reasoning is for prohibiting a jumprope, but I don't think I will be going back because all their equipment is worthless and I can't even use a jumprope. So basically all I can do at their gym is situps, pushups, and use the dumbells....I think I'm just going to buy my own dumbells and workout at home.

Tuesday 11/10

50 Thrusters (25lb. dumbells)
20 Pullups

I got in a little extra work on my pullups and thrusters last night. I bought a jumprope yesterday, and I am planning on doing "Annie" later this week. Everything is going excellent up here, although I wish there was a decent Crossfit close to us in Clearwater. The gym where I am working out only has dumbells and doesn't have any other free weights so it pretty much sucks, but it is close and cheap. Hopefully when I find a job we will be able to live close to a good Crossfit. It is really amusing to walk around the gym and observe people who are "working out" because no one is even breaking a sweat! WTF? I felt like people were staring at me the other day when I was laying on the ground in a puddle of my own sweat and vomit, and some guy actually called me a douchebag.
