Happy FridayFriday, May 25, 2012
It's a holiday weekend and it will be in the 80s and 90s (With a few thunderstorms.This is Chicago, after all). I can't wait to get out and have some fun. It's basically summer, and I am loving every moment.
Randolph Street Market
Alaina and I were asked to get to Randolph Street Market early tomorrow morning to select our editor's picks at the market and we're being given Polaroid cameras to snap photos of our favorite items. Fun! The whole being an editor thing is still a little weird to me. I love it but can't believe how much my life has changed.
I finished my two week intro at River North CrossFit and have signed up for my first month. I would have committed to a year but am not sure what area of Chicago I'll be in, so I need to wait on that one. I have done yoga, barre, boxing, spinning, running, rowing etc and nothing has compared to CrossFit. I am hooked. This video will give you a basic idea of what CrossFit is. It looks so much more terrifying than it actually is, although those damn box jumps still freak me out. I am convinced that I'll miss the box and break my face, leg, or something else that I need.
Let's remember that I finished that first workout last in my group two weeks ago. 500 meters of rowing, 40 squats, 10 pull ups, 20 sit ups, 10 push ups, and 5 burpees. Just five workouts later and I took over a minute off of my time. And I didn't finish last. Winning!
