Leaving Las Vegas

...it is a hard thing to do.

Mind you, it is not the getting on the plane, flying, losing sleep, getting back on Eastern Standard, etc. That is not hard to do. Leaving the forever fun, everlasting party thrill ride is the hard part. It is equal parts withdrawal and relief. The sure knowledge that there's no more all night clubbing, no more endless buffet and it is time to return to the normalcy of work, CrossFitting, zoning and sleep can be both welcome and saddening.

First WOD after several off the charts days.
After a 1/2 hour slow steady POSE method run (thanks to Ryan's coaching) around the new neighborhood I tackled this one inspired by CrossFit Philly:
16kg Kettlebell Swings (the 10's) and 10 lb WallBall Shots (climbing to 10)
Executed at a couplet, for time:
10/1, 10/2, 10/3, 10/4, 10/5, 10/6, 10/7, 10/8, 10/9, 10/10

Ended in 9:25 and took a leisurely run around the surrounding few blocks with my dog for a cool down.

Despite my blather above it is good to be home. Nothing better than normal life with Tiffany and our dog Jellybean. No Las Vegas nights will ever outshine her.

Not a chance.
