Having Some Fun Active Recovery

January 8, 2012

Today is my last day of holiday vacation time and the thought of going back to work tomorrow has me procrastinating. I hopped onto Facebook and caught a video about a pro-fighter trying crossfit for the first time. My husband calls it my “exercise-porn” because I could watch it for hours at a time. So I’m watching this hot, ripped fighter workout and there was a clip of him doing some agility work on agility dots. That ofcourse had me youtube more videos and the next thing I know I’m in the backyard having my husband paint some dots on the House of Cyn training floor.



I can’t wait to use them! The paint is still drying but they will get a test drive soon enough! Our dog Stella was in the backyard with us and we had a big play with her and enjoyed to sunshine to practice some of her commands. Next thing you know I bring out the slosh pipe and start playing around some more. I have a 30# slosh pipe that my husband made me but I swear it feels more like 95#!!! A great workout. Here’s what I tried:


I have been wanting to do a slosh pipe clean since my hubby made it for me over a year ago. It isn’t something I have been training for, but every once in a while we will be goofing around or working out in the back yard and I will pick it up and try various movements. Which is exactly what happened today… and I did it! 🙂


Then I started getting caught up watching youtube videos and saw a guy do a get-up with a 42# slosh pipe. I wondered if I could do it and had my hubby tape it just in case I could…and I did it!! 🙂


Overall a fun day. I am going to end my procrastination by taking my dog for a walk in the ravine and look for some movnat opportunities while we are out 🙂
