Runnin' on Empty

Monday, February 25, 2013

Last night I may have gotten .2 seconds of sleep.  This "little" guy was tossing, turning gnawing and scratching all night long.  I huffed, I puffed, I tossed, I turned, I tossed my pillow at him in frustration.  Nothing worked.  He didn't sleep a wink, and neither did I.  Scott went downstairs around 2:00 a.m, but swears he didn't get any sleep either.  I am not buying it.  He managed to escape the wild banshee.

When I dragged myself out of bed this morning, it occurred to me that I needed look King over to see if I could figure out what was causing his restless distress (nine times out of  ten he is just restless because he didn't get enough energy out in the day).  It turns out he has one severely irritated ear. 
And its official, I am the worst dog mom ever.  I immediately smothered him with hugs (much to his dismay) and told him I was sorry for the pillow incident.  He should be on the way to the vet now with Scott to get checked out. I am praying for an easy and quick remedy.
Needless to say, the lack of sleep left me dragging at the beginning of my workout, but I managed to focus my energy and make it through.  My workout looked like this:
1.  Squats:
     - Warm up:  45lbs (bar) x 10
     - Warm up:  75 lbs x 10
     - Warm up:  105 x 5
     - Work Set:  110 x 6; repeat 3x
2.  Step-up/Lunge and Dumbbell Press Circuit - 3 sets alternating, less than a minute rest in between each set
     - Step up and lunge combo with 10 lbs dumbbells in each hand x 10 per leg
     - Dumbbell Press with 25 lbs dumbbells x 15 
The Step-up/Lunge Combo looked like this.  

3.  TRX Leg Curl and TRX Row Circuit - 3 sets alternating, less than a minute rest in between each set
     - TRX Leg Curls x 15
     - TRX Rows x 20

The TRX Leg Curls look like this. 

This is King's "Thanks for being impatient with me when I don't feel good" face.   Bad dog mom.
