A Spring Weekend in Melbourne
As if I haven’t had time to blog lately. FO SHAME. But really, I remember many a weekends in Toronto coming to a close where the mere thought of sitting at a computer hadn’t even crossed my mind; horse riding, swimming, kayaking, running, y’know, suddenly filled all my moments.
And now, my friends, I’m pleased to report Melbourne seriously delivered on this past hot spring weekend; Dinner with Matt (X3), Country Music extravaganza, the hardest CrossFit workout I have ever encountered, anywhere, ever, the beach, city walking, the colo(u)r run, napping, and end scene.
SEEEEEEE? It delivered.
Except not without consequence because as I type this I am sitting on my bed on a Monday at 1pm trying to convince my body it does not need to swallow, as my tonsils and glands and all that fun stuff look like golf balls. <— Good times.
Anywho, let’s go pictures at it, because they’re more fun, aren’t they? (You’re welcome all you lazy readers, youknowwhoyouare, you’re welcome).
First up, was Saturday morning. I slept in, made a delicious paleo pancake breakfast, and then headed to CrossFit. I had no clue what CF had in store for me, and? And it was horrid. So horrid, in fact, I was THISCLOSE to puking the whole time. I managed to complete the 5 rounds in 50:56, doing 18” box jumps, and 3kg/6.6 pound (and 30 5kg/11 pound) wall balls.
But but but, I felt SUPER AWESOME when I finished. My body hurt in the good way, and I felt stronger, skinnier, sexier and all that jazz.
Then, to reward my morning awesomeness, AND because it was hawwwwt out, I headed to dee beach with my roommate, Bec. ‘Twas pretty & glorious, and my oh my am i going to miss having access to the beach when I go home to Canada.
Saturday evening was an early one (cough Colo(u)r Run in the morning cough) so Matt and I headed to dinner in the city, and then he sang me a lullaby as I took awkward photos of myself. Ha. Not really. He’s actually gonna kill me for posting that photo. But he did sing to me. And it was awesome (Sorry Matt, that’s what happens when you date a blogger. xo)
AND THEN ON SUNDAY I DID THE COLOUR RUN, BUT THAT DESERVES ITS OWN POST BECAUSE IT WAS SIMPLY THAT AWESOME AND I’M SORRY I’M NOT SORRY I’M YELLING, BUT I JUST FEEL LIKE ANNOUNCING IT TO THE WORLD!!
