On the agenda for the day was a 2 mile shake out. I have given up trying to run the Tuesday and Friday runs at this 10 min pace nonsense so I ended up with hanging at 6.5 on the dreadmill. The lovely print out is courtesy of The Traveling WOD. I’m currently cursing my idea to do this because I pinched a nerve in either my elbow or my should and my thumb and pointer finger of my left hand are now numb / pins and needles. I pinched a nerve in college that effected the other fingers and I lost all strength and real use of it for almost 2 months! I had to take all my finals on a computer because I couldn’t hold a pen / pencil. I’m slightly terrified and praying to the fitness gods that my hand will regain feeling by the end of the day. A girl can dream right?
This work out was brutal. When I haven’t done handstands before in a work out and they flipping suck. I am not even close to be a sweet crossfitter. I would be that girl hiding in the corner crying because I’m upside down. I didn’t cry but I was definitely swearing. I starting singing “Oh when the saints” in my head (aka quietly out loud) while I was inverted to try to distract myself. I am glad I was able to finish it, this work out did make me feel like a weak little duckling though. Guess I’ll just have to keep practicing.

After doing some blog reading today on landed on a recipe on Maggie’s blog M=1. She calls the gem I fell for Creamy Chicken and Leek Casserole(and yes it is paleo). I plan on making this my own by using chicken and sausage for the meat source and adding in broccoli and possibly some other vegetables. We are hitting up the grocery store after work to get coconut milk and leeks so we will see what looks inspiring! If you have any suggestions to make this recipe even more awesome lemme know. I love to pick other peoples cooking brains!
Q: Any advice on this numb hand situation?
