Roadtripping, Powerlifting, CrossFitting

Hey! I am alive, I promise!

Roadtripping some more. Talk about tripping, I am in a need of Robbie Live. It’s been 1,5 years since I saw him last! Yup, I am his groupie.

I was planning on posting yesterday, but we know by now that my private timing is going down the drail currently BIG TIME. BUT, I spent a marvelous weekend in Munich with 2 girls from the box and the coaches. We were the 5 of us in the car. It was warm to say the least.

RoadtripThere were moments…..

Girrrrrrrls

And Ass Stalking. It’s a thing, I swear. It was silliness unleashed as always and I don’t know how many times I snorted until water came out of my nose. Which is pretty normal if you know me. As much as I have this weakness for all things girly – in reality I am filled to the brim with a ton of tomboy. Probably the reason why my brother loves me. He wouldn’t if I’d be that real girly chickbitch.

Btw, roomies for Blend: I snore a little. I spent a fair amount of weekends with other people in the same room or bed lately (STOP with all your thoughts. Srsly!) and they told me that I snore like a kitten. Not like a real boss, but a harmless girly snore. Pass me a little jostle and I shut up. K?

Ass Ass Ass

Ok, so the main reason why we went there was a Powerlifting seminar at CrossFit Munich taught by our coaches, Ramon Tom and Alessia. The car journey was definitely worth it. Lots of new knowledge, improving technique tips and some horrible (in a good way) practical skills. Ever heard of Zercher Squats? Believe me, you don’t want to. Some PR’s happened which made me happy and we did this godamn WOD at the end which I thought was easy until I was shortly before a sick death caused by a heart attack or a barbell knock out while doing Hang Squat Cleans and effing burpees.

Dinner and Brunch the next day. People, don’t be surprised. Lift big, eat big. It’s normal to order about 11 courses in total for 4 people. Even though the waiters are left in complete shock everytime we give back the empty licked plates.

I am ready to pack my tent and sleeping bag and move in to this breakfast place. Seriously, it was beyond – they had menus where you could just put a cross next to the things you want. Imagine. It was Breakfast Paradise – Pancakes? Check. Omelette? Check. Humongous Caffe Latte? Check. Salmon? Check. Waffles? Check. Pay? WTF?!

Heyyyy, you gotta eat what you gotta eat.

AND something else marvelous happened – my longest girlfriend Simone (we met on our first day at kindergarden back in 1983 and been Besties since then – make your math.) joined me at CrossFit. She wants to wait until our DownTown affiliate opens up, but she definitely kicked her ass and I loved it. If she goes for it, she will pass me by easily – she always was the sportier one of the two of us and she barely needs to do anything to absolve a strong, quick, graceful and flexible performance. I’d be so proud.

He lives now on the landscape and I can not even tell you how much I miss him – and I am so thankful he is doing well. He is the most lovable and craziest cat I know.

Happy Tuesday!

    Its amazing to see how the other side of the world lives. I so dig all the photos, the food, the workouts, & random street walking. What a trip. Last concert was The Motet and they were unreal awesome. Super high energy and have a fantastic funky horn section. My brother and I head for Las Vegas in February to see two nights of the String Cheese Incident!!! And I will be posting photos from that road trip for sure. Have a Gr8 week kid.

  2. Oh wow- what an awesome way to spend the weekend…call me crazy but I would love to go on a road trip, even more so when it’s fitness-related (otherwise I’m sure I’d get so antsy by the end of it). Loving that spread of brunch- go big or go home, eh! As for whether I like to go for brunch? Pshhh who doesn’t ;)!

  3. Every girl has a little tomboy inside, I am sure!😉 I must say those pink machine pants were made for you! They are on point! Ha! Of course I go to brunches cause FOOD!! I can’t remember my last concert..uppps..but I know that my next one will be Maroon 5! So excited!

    Really cool post Lucie! You look so badass!!

    The last live concert I went to was Justin Timberlake in Zurich! It was awesome🙂
    And I LOVE brunch. In fact, I go out for brunch quite a lot. One of my favorite places is Kafi Dihei in Zurich! I don’t know if you have ever been, but I love it because it’s so cosy!!

    • I think I’ve been there once!
      I also love this place right next to the Dolderbahn (left side where the Dolderbahn starts to go up). I forgot the name, it’s supercute and cosy and has all this organic delicious food!

  5. That breakfast… I am drooling! And I have only just finished mine!
    I never went to see Robbie back in his hay day – kind of regret that now, his music was such a big part of my growing up!
    Hang squat cleans and burpees – urgh! sounds ok but I know is anything but!

  6. Aww, I love Ben. Can you ever get him back?? He looks so sweet and in need of a friend. At least that’s what Oscar says.

    I like to eat all the breakfasts without the intense skull crushing workout beforehand. Oops. The omelet looks divine, and I could eat those ever day of the week. Bring on the eggs.

    P.S. I’m a heavy sleeper. I hear nothing.

    • I love him too, he really is such a crazy, funny and absolutely adorable cat.
      I don’t think I get him back, I am out of the house way too much – that’s why I gave him to a family where he can be outside. It broke my heart but I had to do what’s best for him!

  7. I seriously can’t wait until Blend. Like… I get giddy just thinking about it. Even if you snore. I’m okay with that😛 And given my love of breakfast food and the fact that I often eat it 3 times a day, I’m more than okay with brunch. Give me ALL the waffles, pancakes, and crepes❤

  8. I want to come with you!!! To powerlifting and to brunch. OMG that looks good.

    Also, your back looks fabulous!!
