Great People

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. Mark Twain


I love this picture of Rocky.I took him out for a 3 mile run today. It rained yesterday so I didn't take him out. He was super happy today to get out. For a little dog with a big yard he goes crazy if I don't take him out at least every other day
Life is full of challenges lately , well it has been for a while. I have no idea where I will be living in the next 6 months. I told my sister two years ago I would stay until April 09 and it's coming up. I want out of my current living situation it's just not working for me. We were suppose to sell the house this year. But not sure if it will happen. I know I can't afford to live alone and finding a place to rent with a dog will be tough. All I can do is pray everything works out.
It's not like I have to leave anytime soon. So I still have a place to live.

"Tabata Fran"

Complete 2 alternating Tabatas of thrusters (M:95#/W:65#) and pull-ups. A Tabata is 20 seconds of work/10 seconds of rest. If the session has more than 8 athletes, the rest period my go to 15 seconds for logistic purposes. This workout is 16 rounds of work. You will alternate movements every round. 20 seconds of thrusters, rest, 20 seconds of pull-ups, rest, etc. Your score is total reps for the whole workout. It sounds like a lot, but really, you are only working for a total of 5:20. No problem right?

After the workout, rest five minutes then complete the following at your own pace:
  • 30 Abmat sit-ups
  • 30 good mornings with a bar
  • 30 GHD sit-ups
  • 30 back extensions
  • Hold an L-sit for a total of one minute
7/8, 6/8, 5/8 , 5/7 , 5/7 , 5/7, 5/7 , 7/6 total 106

Hi Catra,

I spotted the orb in your picture before I read your post and have been curious about them for a while now, though I've never seen one quite so bright and solid looking. I see lots of them in photos I've taken of my son, usually they are more translucent.

Most be someone special looking out for you!

I love the quote; it's right on!

Also, good luck on the living situation. I know too well how stressful that can be.

Hey Catra, it was great working out with with you today! I catch you about once a week and it's always like I'm catching a breath of fresh air. Keep up the hard work, girl. Your abs ROCK!

Good luck with the living situation, something always opens up when you least expect it.

Nick said...

That Mark Twain quote is spot on. My father in law always has something smart to say about my running and quite honestly I'm sick of it.

Anyway, you have always seemed like a good person to me, and I believe what comes around goes around. You'll find a place to live and it will work out.

Don't sell your house now if you can help it. You get allot more out of it when the market comes back in a few years. But I understand the situation I think. Tough.

Catra said...

Brett were not selling it now..It wouldn't be worth much..I just need to work it out. It's hard to live with someone who is not very nice. I am stuck because we own it together. I just need to work it on my own. It does suck. But it could be worse.
