Day 6: The Tub and The Lunges

THE TUB: Normally Tuesdays I wake up early and go to the gym to work on Olympic lifts. I thought about that a lot while I was lounging in the bathtub yesterday morning. What a nice reminder that I am never obligated to workout. Don’t get me wrong. I love to train. I like to see what I’m capable of when I push myself to the absolute limits. But I have to say, soaking in Epsom salts is also nice.

THE LUNGES: Later while I was on the elliptical (my crossfitless workout of the day) I watched in the reflection of the window in front of me while other people lifted weights. I started to understand the impulse to walk up to strangers and correct their posture. It’s hard to watch someone doing lunges with their torso collapsing to one knee while the other knee crashes to the ground. Ew. Look away. I get the same feelings watching a surgery. Are my front squats that bad? Hmm. Maybe I should video.
