Ship’s Log–March 8th


Yeah, ok, so there were cooked again today, but I swear they were the last for a good long while. I didn’t plan on eating any, really, but it’s darn near impossible to resist when someone else offers you a few from their opened package, and I was offered them today while hanging out with Thing 1’s Girl Scout troop while they sold boxes at a nearby home improvement store.

At least today’s class made them feel earned. We brought out the battle rope, which is a 2″ thick, heavy jute rope that is looped around one of the heavy bags. Have you ever used a battle rope? It is the sort of exercise that is easy for the first 10 seconds, but then quickly becomes an intense personal hell at about the 15 second mark. The results are great, but the 1 minute rounds we went through were…intense. I hope I can lift my arms high enough to brush my hair tomorrow!
