Squat Clean and Jerks and Work Dinner

6:30 AM CrossFit, check! We worked on our squat clean and jerks…5 x 2 at 75 lbs. I did 75 lbs squat cleans on Saturday, but wow, the bar sure felt heavier today.

7:00 AMRAP:
5 Hang Clusters (55 lbs)
35 double unders (attempts counted)
I was a few double unders short of 2 rounds. I just didn’t have a lot of gas in the tank today.

On a brighter note, I didn't have to be at the office until later today because of a work dinner I have to be at. I rolled in around 3 PM to make some last minute copies of handouts, since I was sure I'd be getting the most current version at the eleventh hour. Karen came in around the same time and helped me stuff the folders. It was funny to see her since I saw her all last week. We don't usually see each other for that long of a time since she's based out of Colorado.

We walked over to the hotel and got step up. The dinner was so good: salad, chicken marsala (the other dinner options were salmon and eggplant parmesan), and some sort of tiramisu cake that I didn't have the room to finish. My Executive Director and one of the federal big-wigs sat at my table (eek), but the conversation actually flowed nicely. How much of a disaster Trump is was a good common denominator topic.

Everyone took turns introducing themselves. “Hi, I’m Tina. (Educational background) This was my first job offer out of grad school (this got a few laughs), and I have been with the organization for 7.5 years.” I’m sure that surprised a few people. Bah ha ha.
Get off my pillow...
