Los Angeles is getting tagged teamed by two storm fronts right now, one from Santa Barbara and one from Orange County. It's making me real glad today is a rest day.
Yesterday was my long day.
x5 for time
30 seconds handstand
50 squats, ass to medicine ball
12 rows, 50lb per arm, holding for 3 seconds at flextion (or whatever the real word is).
10 per side weird side arm movement things that sucked a lot
10 (per side) reverse lunges with dumbbell curls (15lbs each) at the top
12 tricep pull downs
15 per side raised leg crunches
15 per side woodchopper things
The workout started out fucking AWFUL. And got progressively better.
Then I got home and ran the dog a mile to get him to leave me alone.
Then I put on Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune and spent an hour on the bike.
At least I have a new denim jacket. Well, new to me.
I am, hands down, the coolest person I know.
It's crazy raining here, which is good, since we're looking at a summer drought if we don't get enough rain. I hate water rationing. Plus, more rain means paying less to water my lawn. My fruit trees have to be so happy right now.
But, it's raining hard enough, and our building is old enough, that I've had to walk around reminding employees to save things on a regular basis, because the chances of us losing power today are pretty high, if this rain keeps up.
And man, no one here knows how to drive in the rain. No headlights on, 60mph on the streets? That will get you home safe. 20mph on the freeway? Sure, buddy, safest way to go.
I grew up in a place where *gasp* rain was normal. Mind you, I didn't DRIVE back then, but I still knew that shitting yourself and stocking up on toilet paper and canned goods.
Then again, based on how everyone else reacts to rain, it kind of is a crisis in LA. STORM WATCH 2012! And, the streets do flood every time it rains. And there are mud slides. And the power goes out for 6 hours, and SOMEHOW someone dies during that time. From not being able to watch Oprah or something. Whatever. At least there are lots of pretty people and restaurant options.
