Pretty sure the people outside the US who read this blog are already shaking their heads in wonder at yet another display of the bizarre "USA Sport" known as Black Friday shopping. Not to worry, I am too. Being 5'3" and not prone to excessive violence means I just shrug and look for deals online. Fortunately this year seems to be bursting with them... and unlike the "doorbuster" items at certain big box retailers, the deals and items listed below are NOT 2nd tier remakes or brands you've never heard of—they are the real deal.
So... started writing up my Swedenexperiences and it is becoming a novella... and is still in the works, admittedly becoming it's own little travel log with workout and food stuff reported all through it. It's become so gargantuan that I'm going to end up editing it down and might even disperse different parts of it to different blogs on different sites (there may be an "executive summary" part for those of you who are skimmers). We'll see I guess. Those of you following along on have a few ideas of some of the wild adventures and tasty meals, but there's so much more to tell.
It's been an incredible month—and it isn't even over yet! First of all, I led 2Instructor Certification Workshops—One in Vienna, Virginia at the amazing "Tyson's Playground" athletic training facility, and the other in Cartersville, GA at Beth and Russell Andrews' wonderful Maximum Body Training. Also in Georgia, I was able to help Beth a little at the workshop she led the day before. It's always so much fun to work on the basics, and every time I'm even near one of those , there's something new to learn, observe, explore, and troubleshoot.
Yesterday, celebrated reaching over 60,000 likes on their official page by offering free shipping for the contiguous USA on everything for 24hrs only. Hopefully you were able to take advantage of this offer—I did notice that readers of GiryaGirl.com did seem to take action pretty quick, judging from your clicks!!! I also noticed that many of you were VERY smart and used this as an opportunity to order some seriously heavy .
Yesterday's small group workout was designed with heavy swings in mind to further celebrate this free shipping theme (sorry delivery drivers... it's going to be a rough for you). So if you have ordered something big and heavy, or you have some big and heavyhandy, this simple workout might be fun -- or use it as a template to create your own (and share it with us in the comments below if you don't mind)
