30 Ring Pushups
30 Wall Balls
300Ft Walking Lunges
30 V Ups
30 Back Extensions
100 Double Unders
Let’s ignore the fact that I had a hangover and was dehydrated. Let’s also ignore the pounding headache at every exertion. We’re also ignoring that I ripped my hand on the pull-ups and the fact that my left arm hurts. Oh, and I got about 2 hours of sleep. Blah, blah, more excuses, etc. We’ll also ignore that this took me 35 minutes. Total shit show.
INSTEAD! Let’s focus on the fact that this was my first WOD where I did the double unders!! All 100 of them!
Deadlifts 4 x 12: 85#, 115#, 133#, 163#
16:30 rx, but felt dead the whole time and not very efficient.
Then, tabata ab stuff with wall balls.
Humidity + lady business = sluggish sweat fest. Just wanted to lay down and die.
WOD wodded, post posted. Now, work work-ed.
Is it Fall yet?
7am Yoga: Check. Got all bendy.
Strength: Check. Made for some ugly face.
Bench Press 4x6: 105#, 115#, 125#, 125#
WOD: Check. Got all schweddy.
19:something. Subbed 2x rope scales for the climb. Strong enough to do them, I’m just afraid of heights. So the scale is you just lay on your back and pull yourself up then lower yourself back down to your back. Squats felt heavy. I’m still not a very confident squatter.
Because reasons (WEATHER!!). This will probably be the last day it isn’t 1000 degrees with 700048484% humidity until September.
Push Press 4x10 @ 63#, 73#, 83#, 93#
Next time for 10’s, I should start at 73. Still had gas in the tank.
Then DU practice — I can do them now!! Next up is stringing them together. Woohoo!
5 rounds of:
- 2 wall walks
- 4 ring dips
- 6 burpee box jumps
- 8 clapping push-ups
- 10 jumping squats
- 12 ft monkey bars
Those bars are so high up! Scares me every time to jump off at the end.
I keep thinking about not posting boring WOD posts any more, but then I remember the hundreds of WODs posted by people like @rxingmyazzoff and @for-time that made me finally work up the nerve to walk into the gym. You never know who might be inspired by the most mundane posts!
Regional Indiv. Event 6 – 2013:
Time was 30:50 (There is a 15 minute time cap at Regionals)
On the DUs, did 10 attempts (got all 10!) then 360 singles. Turns out it is all in the rope. There was a really good rope at the gym that somebody left, and it did the trick! I’ll be ordering one of those asap. Now I can do DUs! Yay!
Kipped most of the HSPUs because FIFTY.
Weight on the bar for the last 2 moves was 85#. I could have done the 100# for the overhead, but not the lunges. The lunges were the hardest part of the entire workout. It probably took me 10 minutes. Hahaha!
For the past 4 weeks I’ve really been struggling on the food front. I was doing super awesome and then I was doing TOO awesome and I derailed myself. I’m in the right mindset to pull it together, I just have to follow through.
The number one thing that helps me get the eating under control is leaving the gym feeling awesome. The more of those I can string together, the more successful I am everywhere else (nutrition, my job, being a wife and mom, etc.).
I’m also going back to a mostly no-wheat diet. I made the healthiest choices when I was doing that!
Some things have been getting in the way of getting to the gym, and it will continue to be that way through June, but I’ll be doing my best — because that is all I can do! :-D
So I got some new kicks while in Indy, and I’ve been itching to try them out (Nike LunarSpeed+):
My mom came and picked up the puker and took him to TKD (poor dude, sick again today), so I have 1.5 hrs to do what I want!
Went outside and stood on the porch. Syncing the Garmin, look down and LO AND BEHOLD! Gifts from the Internet!
“Cool! I’ll open it when I get back!” I thought to myself, as I started running on this beautiful, sunny day.
One mile in, and the irony begins. In come the clouds and down comes the rain! Buckets and buckets of rain. There’s a rain jacket in that envelope, and I knew it. Haha! But it felt so wonderful and everything smelled so wonderful and runner’s high is pretty high and so I kept going.
Within a mile, I knew I was going out too fast. And then I realized that there is no such thing. If you feel like you are going out too fast, it is because you are ready to go faster.
Those of whom obtain our swoonage didn’t do so by going out in the easy gear all the time. They kick it up a notch, and then take it up a bit more. So I dug in and breathed hard, exactly how I felt 5 years ago when I started c25k.
And as I ran, even Pandora decided to load on the irony:
Needless to say, it was a perfect run and it reminded me of all of you and how much you make me swoon and make me want to be a healthier person and a better person and this is how I will cheer for you in my brand new awesome rain jacket:
Thank you, Amy!!!
Thankfully, it is deload week. If I had to deadlift or squat today, I probably would have just fallen over.
Ground control to Major DOMS….
100’ lunge w/25# overhead. Then 3x:
Then 100’ lunge w/25# overhead.
Seriously need to detox from:
Got my calorie counter out today. I’m up 5# from when I gave you guys $10.
My splits from Saturday. It’s neat to see the track on the Garmin stats! It was from miles 6-8 I believe.
Walked through 5 water stops for about 10-30 sec each. Knew I wouldn’t PR because of lack of training and a gazillion people, so I didn’t try to keep pushing too hard. Goal was just to keep running, and I did!
This is a really great race, and I’d highly recommend it. Course support and entertainment was spot on and the course itself is super flat. Just practice dodging through crowds or get seeded up front and it would be an easy PR race, weather permitting.
