Hero Friday at CFC
Rx Deadlift – 275/185
Game plan involved step-ups as usual, until 2 minutes before the WOD started when Coach Sue announced Rx meant you had to jump up but could step down! Last minute amendment to the game plan cause Rx was my goal! Find a pace an just keep moving was the new plan. Don’t know what was different today, but I kinda killed it. Set my bar up facing my girl and we chased/pushed each other the whole way through! In the end, Amanda beat my by 1 rep with scaled weight and step-ups, but we still BOTH crushed this sweat fest! First time doing McGhee (I think!) and definitely first time doing it Rx! I even made the leader board for the day 🙂
Result – 15 full rounds <– I did the math. 75 deadlifts, 195 push-ups, 135 box jumps!!
Friday was a day of appointments that I luckily got to dress up with a fun morning WOD. Coach Jen from my nutrition session at CFC recommended I go see a naturopath who also works out at the box. Interesting stuff and some thoughts on how I can fix some of my “problems”. One of the take-aways… stop eating broccoli and asparagus. What?? And cut my caffeine intake by 50%. 😦 but my stomach has been so messed up since at least January that I’ll try anything really. At least she didn’t say no more peanut butter. Actually, at one point she said “so when you have a cheat day… wait… what is a cheat day for you?” LOL!! A jar of peanut butter and a spoon. Anyways… the 2 days after my appointment with Jordan were interesting. Sat. was alright, Sunday and Monday my stomach was a disaster. My assistant looked at weird me a bunch of times cause the noises coming from my tummy were ridiculous. So I take out the bad stuff and it gets angrier? WTF? Plus I’m in the process of trying to figure out what the heck to bring for lunch every day other than chicken.

5 Rounds of:
20- Wallballs 20/14
15- Hang Power Cleans #155/#105 #75/#55
Sunday sucked. Got in some skill work at open gym in the morning at CFD with my girl, then got home and showered for a 2:00pm breakfast. What? Dinner, or should I call it lunch? happened around 5:00 and crashed early. Second day in a row lacking calories and man did I feel it for the Monday morning WOD! Flat and tired and still sore from Friday’s annihilation made this WOD even suckier than normal. Started with a 75lb bar but something shifted in my back then spasmed like crazy in round 4 so once I got my shit together I stripped the weight to continue.

Yuko’s meet and greet night! I should have invested in Kleenex stocks before heading to this event. Sad tears, happy tears, and so incredibly proud of my little wonder-pup! I was allowed some time to say hi properly down on the floor with lots of excited cuddles and kisses, but after “our” time I think he told me “it’s ok mom. I’m ready for this!”. The rest of the time was spent talking with his new best friend’s mom while he lay calmly on her feet. Today my boy is boarding a plane to make the trip to eastern Canada where he will change the lives of a family with a little girl with Autism. 5 year old Nancy has only seen Yuko through facetime conversations with her mom and is already beaming and calling him her dog 🙂 I couldn’t be prouder to have been a part of making this possible for them! Nancy’s mom told me over and over that this felt like winning the lottery… only BETTER.
