Yesterday I rested. And caught up on TV shows. Not that I have many that I follow, but Biggest Loser and Grey’s Anatomy I find entertaining and for very different reasons. Biggest Loser I think I like because of the psychological journey these people go through each season to figure out what has gotten the to their extremely over-weightness. That part has often had me thinking that a trainer or coach would be something I would find enjoyable as a profession… And Jillian Michaels is nice to look at. Watching Bob’s team go through their crossfit-ish workouts leaves me all pumped up to go crush it at the box. But that was last night. This morning, my brain said “pffft… you figure it out!” to my body it seems. During the pre-WOD snatch, Coach Sharon told me to focus on opening my HIPS (cause I haven’t heard that 10,000 times before). But my head couldn’t figure out the simplest of things today. So we scaled. Went from Power squat snatch to hang squat snatch. All with the little “training wheels” plates on the bar. Then first round of the WOD, I landed flat on my butt. So more scaling. Went from hang squat snatch to hang snatch. Thankfully I was able to make that happen, cause the only degree of scaling that remained was put the bar away and go home! Sigh. Today wasn’t my day, but I didn’t give up.
Pre-WOD: OTM, 5 miutes
Snatch sequence – 1 squat snatch, 3 over-head squats (I think? can’t really remember)
For Time: 10*8*6*4*2*
Squat Snatches #115/#80
*= 50 Double Unders after every set of snatches* – got in a few doubles I think?
3 rounds 10 rounds (cause I didn’t squat at ALL during the WOD)
1 power squat clean, 1 front squat (hold at bottom 3 seconds), 1 push jerk
Funny thing was… I had a very productive morning before heading to the box. Made breakfast for post WOD, packed my lunch for today, tossed my spinach and kale in the old Magic Bullet for my pre-WOD “lawn clippings”, even stuck a pork butt in the slow cooker for eattings on the weekend. Oh! Last night I had a Paleo-bake-shop FAIL. Tried out a new recipe for Paleo ginger snaps that came out like little flavorless disks of compressed sawdust. The recipe hunt continues… Time/energy permitting, I may give a Paleo Snickerdoodles one a shot tonight. I miss ginger cookies… although, I really don’t need them but Tim Horton’s and their damn Ginger Molasses cookies try to call my name every time I go in.
