CrossFit and Traveling. Always the same!

Not a ton happening over on this front! I worked my first 12 hour shift yesterday and had a much needed, very nice day at work! I still ended with some frustration at management at the end of the night, but I guess that just happens in this place no matter how good the day has been! It’s Monday today though and I’m sure it’ll be a busy day today to make up for yesterday! Thankfully I have two days off in a row coming up and Jessica is coming home early from Delaware tonight so we get to hang out again tomorrow! 

I managed to make it to the gym today! I was so shocked that I got out of bed for it. I’ll just thank my full bladder for getting me out of bed this morning.

1) Sumo Deadlift, 1 RM (I maxed at 175#, which was pretty surprising since I don’t lift heavy anymore, but I was still 25# shy of my last PR.)

2) *Bulgarian Split Squats, 3 x 8 reps (Just used a 35# bar)


AMRAP 10 (I did 3 rounds plus 13 reps- not very great but I never do great at these morning WODs. I’m definitely an evening person.)

10 Sumo Deadlifts, 225/185lbs (I used 105#)

10 Burpees

10 KB Swings, 53/35lbs (I used 25# and it was definitely too light- I should have gone with the 35#)

It felt good to be back at the gym since I only made it once last week. I only have about two weeks left of actually working out before my life gets crazy! I have a lot of traveling coming up, so I may have to drop in at the gym back at home since it’ll be free and I don’t want to let myself get back out of shape so much again. I might need to start running again… Meh. I’m over running.

I only have 14 days until I see Jon and the cats again! I’m super excited! Jon went to DC this past weekend so we only got to chat for about 10 minutes since Friday morning, which really was kind of nice. I haven’t been feeling the phone lately at all and have kind of been dreading our nightly chats (not because of him, but I just don’t want to be on the phone at all!!!). This is a bit unfortunate since we’re long distance while I’m doing this whole traveling deal. And he’s definitely ready for this whole traveling experience to be over! Not even close yet, sorry! And the more I travel, the more I want to travel! So putting a stop to this is going to be pretty difficult in the end, but I’m determined to try and still take a few assignments here and there, even when this year is up!

I’m going to go shower and get ready for work! Let’s hope all of Plymouth is staying at home today and that we magically have a good Monday! My sanity needs it.

  1. Wow, only two weeks until you get to go back home, the time flys. Especially during summer. Hope you have an easier Monday at work!

  2. Does this mean in 14 days you’ll be driving through NJ??!?!

    Sorry management has been frustrating…I know the feeling. Your crossfit workouts always seem so intense. They look like it to me!

  3. Yay for being able to go to CrossFit. It seems like your time there is flying by and at least you have working out to get you through as well as the visit home.

  4. that traveling nurse

    I did my very first traveling job early this year in Connecticut, loved it and would have wanted to continue after the contract but the hubby, apparently, didnt do too well with him being alone and all that. I thought he was okay with it but I guess not. That put a huge strain on our marriage. To make the long story short, I chose my marriage over my career. I now work per diem at a hospital 30 mins away from home! That way I get the sense of “travel” by driving a couple of miles to work and yet, still near enough to drive back home.
