Hello there people!
How have you all been? I have been busy ( of course), lol. Work has been super busy, kids finished up school and all the jazz that goes along with it.
All that being said, I have continued with my workouts. I have said before , how this year, I really have been unhappy with myself over how I have done. I haven’t been eating right, I wasn’t getting to class as much. I am happy to report I am back on track. THIS IS WHAT I NEED. BADLY. I have increased my classes to get myself in the right routine. So far, so good!
Even though I have was not getting to class as much as I wanted, I still gave it my all when I was there. I had some PR’s in June too!
So, lets start fresh with this week. Here’s how I have done so far:
Back Squat Strength Practice
5×3, 105 lbs, 125 lbs, 125 lbs, 135 lbs, 145 lbs!!! ——> That’s a PR Baby!!!
Then the work out was a 12 Min Amrap
6 Push Press – 65 lbs
12 OH Plate lunges 15 lbs – this was supposed to be with the bar, but there was no way I could do it, so first I started with 25 lbs plate, that was a joke. So, my coach gave me the 15 lbs plate instead. What a difference that made. I got through 5 rounds plus 10 reps into the 6th. I was really psyched about the Back Squat PR. So proud of myself!
Today was my first venture into the 5 am class. The amount of strength in that class is pretty amazing. Inspiring to watch everyone. I really struggled with the workout today and I told myself if I get through 1 round, I would be happy with that. So , here goes:
800 m run – last one of course. But I finished the run. Took me a long time though.
25 Burpees – the devil. Serious. Devil burpees. I hate them so much. They slow me down cause I can’t freakin do them great. Took for-fucking-ever to get them done.
25 Power Cleans – 85 lbs. i was doing 65 lbs, but Holly said to go to the 25 lbs. Glad I did – another PR!
25 Pull Ups – double green band , still 😦 but I got them done too
I only got 10 burpees into the next round, it was supposed to repeat the 25’s, then another 800 m run. Some folks finished it. I was happy just to be working out.
Some day , I will finish all the WOD’s, lol!
You know, this blog is really the best motivation I could have. Reading back some of these entries. Man, I have come a long way. And there is so much farther to go!
Its getting fun folks!
