1. Yesterday, at the grocery store, I picked up some cherries on sale for $1.50 a pound. Usually, I steer clear of cherries because they are pretty pricey. After checking out and putting my grocery haul in my car, I, like I always do, pulled out my receipt and went over it. They charged me $4.99 per pound for the cherries! The bag of little red gems should have cost me a little under $3, but cost me a little over $9.
Last shopping trip, I went to customer service because they overcharged me $0.49 per pound for zucchini, and they refunded me $3. Yesterday, they overcharged me $7 and I let it go. I don't know my rationale behind this. Maybe I was just too tired to fight about it. Grocery store: 1 Rebecca: 0.
2. This WOD kicked.my.butt! During round 3, I got really dizzy and light headed. I felt like my blood pressure was bottoming out and had to go squat in front of the fan for a few minutes. Needless to say my time sucked. My head/sinuses/ears are always a little congested in the morning. They were worse yesterday, and since it was only 5:30 AM, they hadn't had time to drain and clear out before my workout. It must have been that coupled with the heat and humidity, oh, and the fact that I hadn't been to CrossFit in a week and a half. I felt funny for the rest of the day (and therefore skipped Party by the Pool).
3. I miss running. Specifically, I miss long Saturday morning runs. My plan is to run a half in October with my best friend/mother of my godchild, Kristi, so official training will start in July. The heat is already brutal. I must acclimate. And I must get a training plan together.
Do you watch prices at the grocery store to make sure they ring up correctly? Usually, I watch as they are scanned and correct the checker right away. Yesterday, she scanned all my items, then my Kroger card, so I couldn't tell if prices were accurate. Lesson learned. Each shopping trip, there is at least one item mispriced.
Have you ever passed out or vomited during a workout? I felt close to doing both yesterday. I actually have puked during a workout before. I'm not ashamed....it's a little hardcore!
How hot is too hot to run outdoors? I know summer is "running season" for a lot of Northerners, but November to March is running season for us. Here, it will be high 90's with 75% humidity by late July.
