Random thoughts. I’ll get more into details at a later date… Thoughts circling around in my mind – trip 🙂 trip 🙂 TRIP 🙂 puppy? 😮 Especially prevalent yesterday. Rest days are mental anguish. Dave and Sharon are away this weekend, sooooo today was an infamous Coach Will WOD. Those deserve their very own post. Plus I decided today I could give myself my very own throwdown showdown sort of day. Started with another #makeothersbetter sesh at the track with Smarti. Last night Smarti sent me a text to suggest running outside. Yup, a change of scenery would be nice, but my car read -12 on the way to the track so I was pretty glad we decided against it! We went for the routine of last time – run 1km, walk 250m x2. Then on the third and fourth round, I picked up the pace for the walk lap and got in a speedy 500m in the time Smarti walked 250m. At the end, I ran my 5km and walked another 1km. Happy with that 🙂 Another step towards my goal. Today I reached 65km. I’ve had to battle to celebrate how far I’ve come and not get caught up on how far I still have to go. 65km is a long way!
Part – 2 was an hour skill session with Coach Will, working on my snatch! Over and over and over we worked the deadlift, the scarecrow something, the hang snatch and the power snatch. EVERY one included a squat! In Coach Will’s words “always squat in practice!” Ok. Noted. But my BUTT might hate me tomorrow. Cause ya know the wod obviously had squats too.
Part 3 – the WOD. We’ve nicknamed this one:
in teams of 2, for time:
row Sally partner holds plank
100 deadlifts #95 partner holds top of deadlift
100 front squats #75 partner holds bar in front rack
100 wallballs #14 partner holds wall sit
100 pullups ring pulls partner hangs from bar
100 push ups partner holds plank
2000m row partner holds plank
*** Every 3 minutes, both partners complete 10 burpees each
time – 46:23
Yes, typical Will WOD. Lots of reps. Lots of sweat. Death by the end. One of those long-ass grinds that you get to the end and you no longer have anything in you to even sweat out! Brushing the salt off dry skin is not a good scene. I’ve drank gallons since and still thirsty!
Part 4 – locate couch, park butt. And catch up on a few episodes of Wentworth 🙂
