That’s right, untitled. Cause I’ve hit “save draft” too many times already trying to think of a name. :-p
Thankfully despite my mental un-clarity, it would appear that physically I’m still able to live the dream 🙂 This being said, tonight I need to really focus and get some food prep done. It’s a bit of a problem when I sit on my couch for a ridiculously long amount of time and consider all of the things I want/need to get done. I either start something, and fail to follow through to completion, or forget all together. For all of you who are thinking “pffft! I forget things all the time!” You have no idea. I forget things on a good day too, but this is to a whole different level. If you get me, you’ll understand. If you don’t, I hope you never do! Several times throughout the day, I just get lost within my own mind. It’s ugly.

Yesterday I admitted to myself that today should have been a rest day. My mind needs this stuff though. There’s an element of strategy and a mental grit that I can understand, even when other things are complicated. Plus this one sounded awesome, AND it was a partner WOD. My running buddy was the perfect partner though cause she was tired too and perfectly happy to go lighter on the weight. We both need a rest day, but complimented each other today in terms of intensity and got through the laundry list of movements efficiently.
Mon. Jan. 19:
6:00am 3km run/stair run, followed by 7:30:

200 Meter Run/Row/AirDyne
15– Air Squats
AMRAP Power Cleans in Time Remaining #135/#95 #75
Rest 1:00 Between Rounds
Score – 42 Power Cleans
Name of the game – find a rhythm and keep consistent. Survived 4 rounds of pull-ups, then switched to ring pulls. My legs felt the stairs when it got to the last few rounds of air squats! My running buddy and I decided this morning to mix things up a little. Got in our 3km, then circled the stadium running up and down the stairs. Alternated between the quick single step method and taking the stairs 2 at a time. I like that better! The singles I nearly face-planted a few times.
Fri. Jan. 16:
6:00am 5km Run, followed by 7:30:
AMRAP 8 Minutes:
3 Power Snatches (95/65), 3 Box Jump Overs (24/20)
6 Power Snatches (95/65), 6 Box Jump Overs (24/20)
9 Power Snatches (95/65), 9 Box Jump Overs (24/20)
Continue to add 3 reps per round until time is called.
Result – 15’s +13 Snatch #55
Deceiving WOD! “How bad can it be? It’s only 8 minutes.” WRONG! It was pretty brutal. The 3’s and 6’s went super fast, then suddenly it jumped to 9’s. I stared at the clock in disbelief when I got to my 9 box jump overs and there was still 5+ minutes left.
Thurs. Jan. 15:
CrossFit Division WOD
Toes to Bar
Burpees over ERG
300 Meter Row after each round
Time – 10:16
Yup. This was kinda shitty. Although despite my near fail in the 15’s where my mind wandered for a brief second and I quite nearly ate it jumping over the rower, I actually enjoyed the burpee portion! What?! lol
