now what will I do???

Got up as normal at 4:45 a.m. got ready and headed to the gym to begin my 5:30 workout. Before we began class, Matt again told us he had not yet heard anything about the governor closing them down but he expected it would probably be soon. So, if/when that happens, he and Alicia will do whatever needed to help you continue your fitness. They will check-out equipment if you need it, whatever.

We then began the workout and I felt really good. Well, of course, it is a Monday. I almost always feel ok on a Monday. My body has had a little time to rest.
(Sorry somehow I didn’t write today’s workout down.)

Class ended at 6:30 a.m. and headed home to shower and begin my work day. I went to school (I can still go in to work) and started to catch-up on things. Around 3:00 p.m. I heard on the radio that the governor had signed an executive order closing all gyms and fitness centers. WHAT?? NOW WHAT??? WHAT WILL I DO??  Sure enough…I checked my phone and there was a message from Matt and Alicia stating that they would be closing the gym at 3:00 p.m. as ordered. However, they would be at the gym for you to borrow equipment from until 5:00 p.m. IT IS TRUE…NOW WHAT??? WHAT WILL I DO?? I have been doing so well. How in the world will I continue to workout without anyone? Needless to say, I was crushed…so sad that I had been doing so well, going 5 days a week. Not giving up, how in the world would I continue this?

Mike Roberts told me I could borrow whatever I needed to from the workout room at school. I went down and took a few pictures of what is there so I could go to the gym and talk to Matt and figure out what I needed and how I was going to do this.

Went home, went to the chiropractor, and then Grace and I went to the gym. I told Matt and Alicia how very sad I was about this and I’m not sure how I’m going to do this? Matt said not to worry he was going to come up with something just keep working and we would hear from him soon.

I reviewed the equipment I have and have available with Matt – stretchy bands, PVC pipe, Abmat, 10lb wall ball, jump rope, exercise bike and then whatever dumbbells he thinks I need as well as borrow some rings as I really like doing ring rows. Matt suggested I go pick up the box stepper and dumbbells (sets of 10lb, 15, and 25 lbs.) Ok, but I did question the 25lb set as I have never even used those at the gym. However, he did have a point that I can lift that much and more with the barbell.

Ok…I am sure you are wondering WHY I have all this exercise equipment if I didn’t exercise? Yes, I know…crazy. Well, actually for Christmas I ended up with a number of Amazon gift cards. I decided I was going to wait and purchase things I wanted instead of the things we always need around here. I started looking and decided I needed the stretchy bands, Abmat and wall ball as those would be good to have at home since there are many simple exercises that can be done with them and besides, I actually like using those things.

I was now all set with everything I might need but the question remains…how in the world will I do CrossFit myself? I will never work as hard doing these workouts myself. But I guess I’ll have to try…
