Pretty consistent heart rate  pattern there. Good job on the WOD. 25 snatches per arm for 4 rounds even sounds brutal.

 

No no 25 total per round (switching arms each rep)

 

i don’t think I could survive 50 total with that weight. My body would just explode.

Saturday workout, after screaming man left and I got down to business (he did not do “eye of the tiger”, but I didn’t ask, either)

 

tonight was a crossfit Metcon called DT. I warmed up on the stationary bike for 15 minutes first. 

 

5 rounds at #80

 

12 deadlifts

9 hang cleans

6 push press (overhead press)

 

I can’t find my last DT so I’m not sure if my time got any better - I finished in 22:37 - but wow, it went a ton better than I ever remember doing it before. I managed to get ALL the hang clean segments unbroken except for the last one, which is huge for me - hang cleans are by far my weakest power move. I paced well and broke it up intelligently, going from the push press that ends each round straight into the deadlifts, which are the easiest move. THEN I would take a break before starting the hang cleans. I watched an old YouTube of Sara Sigmundsdottir doing heavy DT and she broke the segments up (not exactly the same way but the same amount) and by god if it’s good enough for her to pace the workout with breaks then it’s good enough for me. Especially since I’m twice her age. 

 

So all in all I felt fantastic about this. I was hammered at the end and I don’t even want to consider what my form was like those last couple of overheads, but as long as I don’t actually drop the bar on my head I’m okay with it. I had to sit down and catch my breath for a few minutes. 

 

Then I did 30 minutes on the rower which was mostly death by boredom. 4600 meters I think. 

 

I am not a gym selfie person but I really wish I’d done one today - the two workouts had my shoulders and traps poppin’.  I’m usually very self concious of how big my traps are (I was a photo assistant for years and moving the equipment around gave me freakishly large shoulders) but today for once I didn’t care; i was just pleased with what I could do. I hope tomorrow’s workout isn’t shoulders, though. That would hurt.

Sunday update: not going to workout today because I’m hella sore again (I always forget how much leg goes into deadlifts and hang cleans; I think of them as back/arm stuff) BUT the big news of the day is that I went back through my exercise journal and apparently I’ve NEVER done DT for all five rounds (at least not in the last 10 months). I found three entries for that workout and in all of them I gassed out in the fourth round (one of them in the third round) AND my times for the workout were in the 30-32 minute range. This is unbelievable. It means I’ve gotten fitter, because I’m able to do all five rounds, AND faster overall. 

 

I am super stoked about this. It’s the best way possible to end week two, with such tangible evidence of improvements.

Nothing to update, I just started a new project so the next ten days is going to be pretty hectic. I’m hoping to squeeze in a few workouts, maybe do some cardio at home. 

 

I think I go sub-30 days today

today's go-go juice:

 

 

 

This was kind of an accident (the name, not the coffee)

 

 

yesterday I got home from work and had enough time to do a short workout: 25 jump ropes alt. with 20lb front squats for 10. Four rounds. It was just with some equipment I had around the house; I didn't have time to go to the gym. I just did it in the garage. It took about 15 minutes.

 

Cat #2 has never seen a jump rope in action before and was considerably alarmed. 

 

I'm supposed to be off tomorrow (or do a half day) so I'm going to go into the gym and get a real workout in so I don't fall off to much.

 

27 days to go

I use this as a excuse, reason, to lay out on the back deck , in my swimsuit, in summer. Haven't tried it naked yet. Don't want to totally terrify the neighbors

I have that same caveat. My neighbors are all elderly churchladie types and I don’t think their pacemakers could take it.

Saturday:

 

today I worked from home a half day (ish) and then went to the gym. 

 

First up was snatch practice. No, no, let it out; I’ll wait. 

 

Done? Good. 

 

So I haven’t done snatch in a long time but it’s virtually certain to show up in the Open so I had to practice. I started with just the 30 lb barbell, then put two #10 plates on it to get it to fifty pounds; then I bumped it up to 80, and got so scared of the weight that it took me almost 15 minutes to actually do the first snatch. I kept reviewing the  movement with a broomstick, and doing power cleans to convince myself I could handle the weight. Finally I took a deep breath and did it, and it went up perfectly; after that I did 3 sets of three with no problem at all. It was just a mental block. 

 

In the bitterest of ironies, Phil Collins was on the IPod for all three sets. The Power of the sweater vest could NOT be contained. 

 

The rest of my workout was supposed to be upper body strength, but I was tired and mentally drained from work and it just looked so fucking boring - tbar rows? Again? - that I allowed myself to rangerbrain for once and did a workout called Fight Gone Bad instead; it was much more engaging and gave me that elusive  half-satisfied, half-praying-for-death feeling that good workouts do. It’s rounds of wall balls, deadlifts, box jumps, rowing, and overhead press. 

 

Im working from home again tomorrow so I’m hoping to get in one more workout; then next week the walls will close in with work and I probably won’t get anything all week. Progress is being made however. 

 

Good thing too cause it’s 25 days, or something

Look at that coquettish stare, the little temptress. And those tresses. Tempt-tresses. I think I'm pregnant just from looking at that photo, I have never seen a sexier potato in all my life.

If it's not siesta or fiesta, I'm not interested.
