Walking home from the gym tonight, I benefited from someone else’s front porch serenade… Leaving On a Jet Plane, so quietly played and sang that it was hard to make out. I love that song.
Sometimes I just take those little things with a grateful heart and sing along under my breath. Today was one of those days.
Tonight’s workout was an active recovery workout, so that by the time we get to tomorrow’s killer workout, we won’t be too sore from last night’s killer workout.
I finally got to know a foam roller tonight. It hurts. It hurts so good. We did lots of stretching and mobility work, some with light kettlebells. We did a squat clinic, which is EXACTLY as much fun as it sounds.
I spent a lot of time on the floor. I felt stronger in some places than I expected to. I hurt more in other places than I expected to. During a series of stretches, my left, and then my right calf cramped up.
They still hurt. Right now, I feel warm and relaxed. I feel like I am radiating heat. I don’t feel like a badass, but I feel like someone who is doing what she should be doing.
I feel like, for once, the perfectionist is on a vacation and I am just enjoying the ride.

I love all of these!
Welcome to foam rolling.
Welcome to becoming an endorphin junkie.
Welcome to the beginning of transforming your body into the amazing jaguar/puma/cougar it has always been underneath.
You’re gonna love it.
Thank you, Kelly. You’re a big part of what keeps me going… Watching your puma transformation and seeing your half ironman pics….Woman.
