I’m still here folks! Still trotting along. Still swimming.
It’s been a hectic week. Mother Nature is rearing her ugly head here in the Northeast this week. So, I was only able to get 2 workouts in this week – ugh.
So – this is how I did this week”
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 squat cleans
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 ring dips
I think we had 20 – 25 minutes to do this. No one finished it. You did the clean, then the dips. My total was 58 reps.
But, here is the best part – I totally had a PR! I did my squat clean with 75 lbs!!! I was super excited. I didn’t care that I only got through half of the workout. It is this stuff that means so much. Plus, my squats are so much better… I know, I know. Who’d thunk? LOL The ring dips, those are tough, man. I used a green band. Even though there were only 2 elements, this was a tough workout. It always seems its the only ones that don’t look too bad, that end up kicking your ass.
25 time cap
5 Wall Climbs
10 Step Ups – 12 ” box with 15lb and 35 lb plate / 30 lb DB
15 V Ups
my time : 21:57
Boy oh boy, Wall Climbs. I stink at these, yes, I can get up to the wall, but getting my body close to the wall, ugh. Coach Jane was trying to help me. She told me , “Once you get up, just slide your hands back.” Cha! Jane does always know how to push me the right way, but trying to ” slide” over 230 lbs on your hands, just ain’t happening. I tried. I did , but felt like I was going to snap my arms in half. Another goal to push for.
The step ups, I went for a higher step . so now I am between the 12″ and the 18″. I am guessing 16″?? I started with 35 lbs like I have been using, but Coach Jane suggested going to 30 lbs so I can work on the higher step. I was not easy but I did it.
V ups- or shin ups as I call them, since I cannot hit my toes yet, getting closer though.
This was a hard workout. I enjoyed it!
Due to mother nature being an asshole here lately, I have missed a class the past 2 weeks. She needs to cut the shit. I have a big weekend next weekend, I want to look and feel good! I am going to start doing things at home to keep myself in check, like sit ups, vups, push ups, squats. I have got to keep swimming!
Lets hope for a better week next week!
