I appologize in advance if this post doesn’t make any sense. I am completely sleep deprived and probably have some leftover beer and gin in my blood. Shit.
But hey, it’s all MARVELOUS!
As mentioned on Thursday, I spent my weekend in Berlin, visiting Tim.
We don’t need to talk about my packing habits. I am not ready for that yet.
I took the train this time, which was great! Except that my neighbours didn’t have any space next to me (hello mess) and really…..I hit the guy next to me when I fell asleep and then twitched crazily cause I probably dreamt that I have to do Double Unders or that I stumble over my own feet, or…..anyone else knows that? Waking up cause of your own crazy movements during sleep? I swear, I frightened the whole compartement. We then were all awake, starring at each other (cough, at me, coughcough) and smiled embarrassed. Oh Lord.
Tim picked me up at the station around 10pm, we cooked some food and then I fell into a sleep coma that wasn’t even normal anymore. I slept until 9:15 the next morning, got up and started to spread my mess all over the place.
I was tagged by Meghan to do a #stopdropandyoga Selfie. So I did that just the minute after I got out of bed. Embarrassingly enough, when I checked the other Yogis, they all did beautiful pics with professional poses on gorgeous places. While I stand here in a poor wanna-be-tree-pose in my tatty PJ’s. Go me!
Later in the day after hanging around Tim’s appartment and writing, I went to myleo CrossFit to do a class. It was great! And I didn’t get lost on the way. #win
Naturally, I got some strange looks (#wtf blonde Swiss Chick, what does SHE want here), but fortunately I was able to do all the skills without a problem – ring L-sit hold – one of my favorites; plus rope climb is in our current strength cycle – , as well as the WOD. I gave my best to be a worthy representative of CrossFit Basel!
Speaking of forgetting things – I forgot my transfer cable for my Canon at Tim’s place. Means, the actually GOOD pics won’t be posted today….You’ll have to wait until Wednesday, saarreeyyy.
I then picked Tim up from work and we drove home, I cooked dinner and again, I passed out before midnight and slept like a stone.
Saturday morning we went for a Powerlifting session at Tim’s Gym. Before we started, I did my mobility stuff, practised Double Unders, Handstand and Pull Ups. The moment when Tim took the pic of me standing on my hands, I actually managed to stay off the wall for about 7 seconds. Hehe. Anyone who reads this and can do a Handstand Walk, is probably like ‘#wtf get a life girl. You’re nowhere.’ But yeah, for me, these are tiny progress steps and I love it.
I always practise Wall climbs first – as I was taught so. Standing at the wall makes me arch my back too much, so Wall Climbs are actually better to practise. Finally I manage to touch my shoulder left and right with one hand for about 15 times – nearly dying, but I can do it.
And this. LOL. C’mon, it IS hilarious!!!!
I pulled them up 🙂 67kg (147,7lbs) my bodyweight and an 8kg (17.6lbs) kettlebell. Not from a hanging position though, but well – at least I was smiling.
Tim then tortured me of rounds of Deadlifts and Bench Press, Crazy Core Moves and other things that look easy and are shitty hard.
Imagine here some nice pics of my Photowalk through Schöneberg. ………..
The only one I got is this – Tim LOVES when I take selfies of us (dripping sarcasm).
Later at night, we met up with Tim’s friends and went out. We were the seven of us and it was such a fun night. We started at an Oktoberfest tent and I drank my first mass of my life. ONE litre of beer.
Scary, how big my smile is cause of holding a bucket of booze in my hand.
We moved on to clubs….Ritter Butzke, which I REALLY liked. It SO reminded me of my clubbing years – it was so nice to finally be in a good club again!
We returned home by maybe….5? I don’t know. Let’s forget that we only had liquid calories that night – we simply skipped dinner. Oh God. After 4 hours of sleep, I got up, packed my stuff, had breakfast, said goodbye to Tim and caught the train to Basel.
Stay tuned for Berlin Pics on Wednesday. I have fishi’JEWoipj¨mef¨0iwj 0JWIKLDSMLÄDJS
SORRY. Got to go to bed now.
Did you ever drink a huge bucket of beer like this?
Clubbing, yes or no?
Crazy moves when you dream at night?
