This week has kicked my butt a bit! On top of the heavy work load at the box, my head has had a few moments of considering my total disappointment in this round of Whol30 and wanting to throw in the towel. I mean, what a waste that would be when I have less than a week to go. Yesterday I had a random daydream about an Oreo cookie. Just one… I’m not even sure I remember what they taste like after 3+ years grain free, but a girl can dream… Great. Now I’m thinking about Oreos again, so back to the good stuff. Heavy squats Monday, then Wednesday was a leg destroyer, Thursday made the hands more than a little tender, then this morning I PR’d my 3 rep max deadlift. Not complaining, actually feeling pretty satisfied with the accomplishments, but my body is relieved tomorrow is a rest day.
That’s pretty much been the story of my life since Monday :-p

Ok, there’s something wrong with this statement, but I’ll make it anyways. I loved the lateral barbell burpees today 🙂 Found a rhythm to them and strung them together all fast and seamlessly. Fun times 🙂 The pull-ups were a mess and came down to 1 rep each, so we didn’t get as through as many rounds as this WOD intended, but TB and I had fun anyways.

Thrusters #95/#65 #55

Sweet jeeeeezuz!! This was ridiculous! Kinda reminded me of 15.5, or maybe worse? At least part of 15.5 was sitting on a rower! In a sneaky sort of way, this was 135 squats. Not heavy squats, but 135 reps with a PVC pipe still feels heavy near the end. I nearly cried when I got home and remembered how many stairs were involved every time my pup had to pee.
