Being a coach’s wife is difficult at times. Irregular hours. Lots of lonely days and nights. The grind of the season.
Yet, I am so very thankful. My husband has a job. A job he is passionate about. One that I am passionate about too.
A coach’s wife does not have to deal with a stress level even remotely close to that of a military wife, so I feel guilty even complaining. I have overwhelming admiration for military families.
But, it’s still hard, so the time Coach and I do get to spend together (especially this time of year) is precious.
We make the most out of it by combining things we love: working out and spending time together!
We survived in around 40 minutes. Before you congratulate me, let me identify the modifications I had to make (Coach was on point).
|#PROOF I know. I look like a tool!|
I did assisted, machine pull-ups instead of jumping ones, used straps to support my arms for knees to elbows, and could not get the double unders down for the life of me! So, I did 200 regular jumps & more tabata jumps post-WOD.
This is a longer WOD [workout of the day] than most others. And tough.
Then, it was game time.
|WSU vs. ASU|
The team is very talented, but needs to get hot…NOW, in order to even think about post-season.
During the busy season, I’m not the only one that misses Coach either. He’ll probably be pissed for posting this one. Muahahaha!
|Dad, will you tell me a bedtime story?|
Also, I updated my Feisty 50 workout with the demos of the in/out crunches and hand release push-ups below.
How do you maximize time with loved ones?
