one day it'll all make sense.

a different approach

Back to old bad habits when it comes to wordpress… Posts are drafted, but never making it beyond the drafting phase.  You’ll have to just trust me that it’s probably best that some of the crap I write stays that way.  Some days I’m just scattered and can’t come up with a logical order of putting my thoughts into type.  Others I’m full-on venting and often not very nice.  Those are better kept just to myself 😉  And venting about your JOB on the internet just doesn’t seem smart at all.

Anyways, aside from that life is GREAT 😀  I did it after all.  I signed up for The Open.  I’m sure no one really expected any different, but skipping it this year did cross my mind.  So far I’ve stuck to my plan to just treat the WODs as just another workout.

Fri. Feb. 26:

Workout 16.1.

Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 20 minutes of:
25-ft. walking lunge (front rack)
8 burpees
25-ft. walking lunge (front rack)
8 chest-to-bar pull-ups

Men lunge 45 lb.
Women lunge 35 lb.

Score – 264

Slow and steady and UNBROKEN was my goal.  Success!  Although I still thought I possibly might barf by the end…  Not a technically difficult workout, just loooong.  It’s Monday as I’m typing this and my BUTT is just about recovered.  Each group of 25′ lunges took me 10 reps to complete.  200+ lunges?! My butt has every reason to be still a little bitter about the whole thing.

I took a few of my lieu days from December’s workaholic session to spend a weekend with Amanda 🙂  Went from 16.1 home for a quick shower and breakfast, then out for a day of snowboarding.  Coach Sharon later mentioned to me that it was nice to see I wasn’t as anxious going into an Open WOD this time around.  That’s cause I was more nervous about getting on my board for the first time in like forever than a few lunges, pull-ups and burpees!  It was great though 🙂  My legs held out.  After a few shaky runs I got my sh*t together and was right back in the game!  Amanda and I had been joking leading up to our snowboard day that if we broke ourselves, at least we’d have the weekend to recover!  No need 😉 can’t wait to get out again!


I’ve been a good food influence on my girl too 🙂  We made omelets with broccoli, asparagus and zucchini for breakfasts and chicken or salmon (same veggies) for dinners.  Only used 1 indulgence token over the 3 days in the form of a little goat cheese on my salad 🙂  So worth it.  SO GOOD!


Mon. Feb. 29:

Back to reality this morning.  Back to the box for 6am and back to work.  Sigh… 😉

partner WOD

 Teams of 2, AMRAP 20 Minutes:
3 Calorie Row, 3 Hand-Release Pushups, 3 Dumbbell Snatches (50/35)  #30
6 Calorie Row, 3 Hand-Release Pushups, 6 Dumbbell Snatches (50/35)  #30
9 Calorie Row, 3 Hand-Release Pushups, 9 Dumbbell Snatches (50/35)  #30

Partner 1 completes the round of three reps of each movement, then Partner 2 does the same.
The team alternates in this fashion for the 20 minutes, adding 3 repetitions to each movement per round.

Haven’t done a partner WOD with SP in a while 🙂  The snatches got tough as the reps climbed, but I was happy with how I was able to maintain a good pace on the row throughout.  Kept the split above 1,300 cal/?? 😀  Certainly jacked up the heart rate a bit!!

  1. my ass was killing me after 16.1. went for a nice long walk yesterday that seemed to help quite a bit. Still a bit sore today, but MUCH better. Nervously looking forward to this week’s 16.2 announcement!
