Friday afternoon I got a call from my dad to tell my that my grandfather had passed away. That kind of sucked.
I’m still sort numb and in denial about it all, but I’m sure it’ll hit me soon. Slowly as stories are shared and pictures passed around, all of the memories of Grandpa as I was growing up start coming back. Since moving to California and starting a family, I’ve had fewer opportunities to visit. He passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family. So I was on a plane yesterday flying to my folk’s house to participate in the usual family “life celebration” festivities in my original hometown of New Ulm, MN.
And there’s snow. Because Minnesota.
I want to keep up with my Crossfitting, so I didn’t my gym’s WOD in my folks’ garage and played around with the Total Gym.
- Handstand or pike push-ups 5×3
4 rounds of AMRAP in 2:3o with 1 min rest in between:
- 10 push press (Rx is 35kg, I used the Power Block dumbbells at 17lb/each)
- 30 double unders (I just hopped in place 90 times since I didn’t have a jump rope. And I can’t do double unders.)
After work I went out to dinner with my parents. There’s a tap house that had a fun beer selection, so I ordered a flight of some interesting-sounding brews.
Beer love! The Lift Bridge Batch 1800 double IPA was my favorite, I think.
That’s it for now. Make sure you hug your loved ones, or at least call if they’re not in a hugging distance, and go make it a great day!
