Three Things Thursday
1. I went on a lovely ride with the ever-patient Alyssa last night. She clearly is going for canonization because I was a full 15 minutes late. Damn Google Maps and your inconsistencies. Also, I forgot to take a photo. Blogger fail. Here's an artist's rendering of our ride:
2. Tomorrow, we're heading to San Francisco. Our plans include a trip to the Redwoods, a tour of wine country, an excursion to Alcatraz at night and possibly an open water swim lesson. And sourdough. Lots and lots of sourdough. Tara is watching Napoleon for the weekend, and I took him to work today so she could pick him up on her way home from work. He was a little mayor, checking out the office and making friends.
3. I finally did a CrossFit workout (WOD) as it was written! In CrossFit speak, this means I did it RX (as in, as prescribed). This morning's workout was a 200-meter row sprint followed by 10 squats while using a 35-pound kettlebell. This was repeated ever three minutes for seven rounds. It wasn't a particularly tough workout, but it's validating to finally do a WOD as prescribed.
