carry on :)

Commit already!  Post the damn thing :p

come so far

I’ll start off by saying Saturday was totally awesome, cause it WAS!!  I love the competitive camaraderie that electrifies the air at CFD during one of these events.  Love doing things I’ve never done before, and love watching and cheering while other do the same.  Only down side to Saturday’s festivities – my wrists hurt so badly when I got home that I spent my evening wrapped in ice and flat-out on my couch.  My left one was the worst, but led to another lesson learned – It was the right one that was bothering me part way through yesterday, so I pulled out a wrist wrap for the rest of the comp.  Noted.  If you’re wrapping one wrist, wrap both!  Saturday night was the kind of agony that makes ya nauseous, but thankfully today is not so bad!  No Sunday ball hockey for this kid though 😦  It’s still a struggle to work the pepper mill LOL!  Sunday morning breakfast went pepper-free :p

WOD 2 – 15 minutes, in 30 sec rounds
Determine 4 rep max: Power Clean

30 Thrusters #115

Row 30 calories
30 Thrusters #45

WOD 4
5 min AMRAP – Wallballs #10
4 min AMRAP – Power Snatch #65
3 min AMRAP – Muscle Ups

WOD 1 went well.  The rope climbs and KBS were uneventful, the burpees were actually the biggest challenge I found cause of the plate jump bit.  The first round I was all over the show, but once I found the rhythm it was all good.  WOD 2 – 4 rep max?  who does that?  haha!  We do 3 rep max, and 5 rep max… but 4?  Anyways, we decided to start with #85 – no problemo.  Then #95 – also success.  Then up to #105 and my first attempt I stuck 3 reps, but failed the 4th.  Second attempt – round completed.  Then up to #115 – same deal, succeeded with 3 and failed the 4th.  There was a team communication stutter-step after where more weight was loaded before I could try again.  It’s all good 🙂  I was happy with 4 reps @ #105 considering that was my 1 rep max like 2 months ago.  Plus my failed rep was pretty hard on my wrists.  Ok, everyone has a funny lifting face pic, right?  Well, I have a new one :p  Not that I’m complaining!  I’m just happy people are staring to feel comfortable picking up my camera when I’m the one working out too 🙂

Not something I haven’t run into before, but I still have the bad habit of going into a rowing sprint way too hard.  Kept my calorie split on pace with the guy on our team at 1400-1450 calories per hour, then when I got off the rower to head for the 30 thrusters I realized my mistake.  #65 isn’t super-heavy, but I was dying!  Got through the first 10… then 5… then 3… yeah.  By the end I was struggling to string together 2 in a row, and fighting hard to lock the bar out so the rep would count.  Not pretty.

**Of note from the last 2 images… I’m totally left leg dominant it seems.  Maybe cause my right is the problem one?

Then the next WOD was wallballs.  Oh joy!  LOL!!  Like a lighter thruster and a whole 5 minutes of ’em.  With a couple of no reps in the mix, I ended with 100.  At one point someone came over and mentioned that the girl I was going head-to-head with was a rep or 2 ahead.  I think I muttered “you sush!” and carried on…
