So, apparently my negotiation last week to do 4 days in a row at the box which I justified to coach by promising to stay away for the weekend, was not deemed legit when it was realized that I was not actually taking a weekend to rest. No, instead I hoped on my bike for a “light” 3 hour ride. When I showed up for my 7:30 workout this morning, I was busted again. This time I hadn’t rehearsed a speech… I just stood there all deer-in-the-headlights. 😮 Ok, so I maybe should have taken today off. But when I read the WOD online last night, I was too much looking forward to it to stay away. I went a bit easier today than usually, as I promised coach I would. Still LOVED it 🙂 Tomorrow I will rest.
Today’s WOD looked like this:
Back Squats: 9-9-9-9 @ 70% used #75
Push Press: 9-9-9-9 @ 70% used #55 and completed 4×9 of push press, after getting corrected for executing the first round and strict press. Oops!
Pull-ups: 9-9-9-9 (Strict + Weighted if BW is too easy) weighted?? HA!! I wish! I used the green band for these. Had the blue band ready in case I needed more help, but made it through all with just the green 🙂 Pull-ups felt GREAT today!
After completing the big 3 – Pick two of the following: Do 4 sets of 8-15, based upon load and feel. Good Mornings, GHD sit-ups, Reverse Hypers, Sit-ups, Planks (4x 30 Second holds)
I went with 4 sets of 15 sit-ups and 4 sets 60 second plank hold w/ 1 leg raised (30 seconds per leg raised)
Now I could eat a hippo…
