WOD: CrossFit, Wendler & Oly, Oh my! 07.23.2014

I’ve been doing yoga just about every morning, but I don’t ever remember to record it. So: yoga! The moves were great, but the lady was annoying. Hips and glutes are happy.

Strength:

Split Jerk: Worked it easy for form at 4x6 @ 85#

4x12 Band pull-aparts

WOD sponsored by Satan:

30 wall balls6 bar muscle-ups
20 wall balls
9 bar muscle-ups
10 wall balls
12 bar muscle-ups

9:45, scaled 1 muscle-up to 2 ring dips (so 12-18-24 ring dips). I lost my ring dips! I’ve not done them for awhile, doh!! So I had to use a band. Sad day! They took me forever, too.

Little goats running everywhere — which one do we catch? Haha!

Then:

Wendler OH Press worked up to 1x95. Think my shoulders were already out of juice by then, was hoping for 4. Gah.

Oly junk:

Power Cleans for form 5x3 @ 65#

Snatch from below the knee for form 5x2 @ 55#

Complex of 3(3+2) snatch grip push-press + oh squat @ 80#   so fun!

I had the impression that he was being dragged around for a pony show — love that he admits it’s all an act to sell himself as a product. More going on upstairs (esp. re: business-minded) than I gave him credit for.

(Video runtime 1:06:22 — Klokov speaking English, though!)

She thinks running is like getting drunk in reverse. With drinking, it feels great at first, but then you start feeling awful. With running, you feel awful first, but then, after you finish, you feel great.

WOD: CrossFit & XC Practice 07.22.2014

Strength:

Power Clean 4x4 @ 65, 85, 95, 105

Front Squat 4x4 @ 110

WOD:

2 rounds of:
  10 hang cleans (155/115) 
  20 double unders
  10 push jerks
  20 double unders
  10 front rack lunges
  20 double unders

9:10 scaled to 85# — started with 105, but stripped the 10s, waited one minute, then restarted. The lunges would have been impossible for me at that weight.

Then, Wendler deadlifts — worked up to 4x205.

——————————

Tonight, Max had his first Cross Country practice with the team. We did:

0.5 mile warm-up

2 x 1k laps through the XC course

1 minute sit-ups
0:30 hollow body hold
0:30 superman

We were so sweaty and hot! It’s 95 degrees out. Max did really well, despite being hot and tired. We took lots of walk breaks on the course. I’m sure all the other parents thought I was weird doing all the stuff with the kids.

Dresses are so nice they’re just tubes of fabric you can throw on with very little effort and when you wear one and people are like “oh wow you dressed up you look really nice” but it’s like

ah yes my disguise is working. you think i cared this morning 

My secret is out!

Though I do feel over dressed if I don’t also do my hair and makeup.

I just figured out this weekend that dresses are just long shirts and you get to go pantsless all day around town. That dress I wore is the first one since my wedding dress 14 years ago. How was I in the dark for so long?!!!
