Today was a rest day from running, which is good because my ankle is still hurting me.  It’s not like a normal muscle pain either, it feels like it’s bone pain, but I don’t know that for sure.  It’s actually just above my ankle, if any doctor’s happen to read this and have a suggestion (left leg, outside, just above ankle).

Anyway, there was a Crossfit WOD.  Today’s was ten sets of two reps of an overhead press, resting 60 seconds in between sets.  I used 95 lb.  It was a good workout, mainly because it was quick and I had an extremely full day today.  Not to mention, I was still near failure on my last couple of sets, so I know I picked a good weight.

On to a little bit of venting (hey, it’s my blog, I’m allowed).  I started a school for the Army today.  It’s supposed to be an additional duty to prevent sexual harassment and sexual assault.  First of all, I know this is an extremely important job.  The next part of that, I think that my command should have really put some thought into this, as I don’t feel that I’m the best person for the job (I don’t find just any thing to be harassment, I think some people are overly sensitive, especially in the military).  That is the wrong type of thinking to have being the representative.

Anyway, that’s not what actually bothered me.  What bothered me was some of my classmates.  They kept talking!  They were talking, and talking, and talking, and not really giving the instructors the opportunity to explain things, in my opinion.  That may not be completely fair, and I say that because I realized that this frustration may finally be some of my post deployment stress kicking in.  All kinds of people experience it, I would be willing to say everyone, but I was really feeling it today.  So then I was wondering if these people, these other Soldiers, were actually bothering me, or if I was having a slight PTSD moment (any Soldiers reading this will understand).

Well, that’s it for me today.  Hopefully tomorrow is better for my mood and attitude.
