Back on Track

I really need to get my eating back on track.  There are begining to be more cheat meals than clean meals :-(  I think that I might try the whole 30 for the month of March.  We are starting a nutrition challege at the gym then, so I might as well jump right into it!

I was really sore after the three Wod's I did on Monday, so what did I do, I decided to do a Hero Wod on Tuesday.  Wednesday I was so sore I could barely roll out of bed!

Tuesday's Wod:
Mr. Joshua
400 m run
30 GHD sit-ups (subed for weighted good mornings 30#)
15 deadlifts 185#
Time: 28:20

Wednesday: REST!


100m Walking Squats
15 Push Press 65#

6 Days in a row, too much for your body?

I worked out pretty hard for 6 days in a row, two days with weighted vests, one day with the 60# kettlebell, plus lots of extra reps for some training I'm attempting, so when yesterday's workout was 21-15-9, clean and jerk, box jumps, wall shots, I thought no big deal, sounds fun.  Well I was wrong!  I used 75# for the clean and jerks, which shouldnt have been that hard, but I was struggling!  Guess 6 days in a row is a bit too much!

Thursday's Wod:
clean and jerk 75#
box jumps 20"
wall shots 15#
Time: 15:54

Another weighted vest wod

When I think, oh this wod would be great to do with a weighted vest, I need to take into account the fact that I will have that weight bouncing on my collar bones when I am doing my DU's and that I probablly wont be able to do any DU's and I'll have to switch to SU's because of this extra 20# I am carrying.  Well at least I finished :-)

Wednesday's Wod

For Time
1 mile row
800m run
50 DU
400m run
50 DU
800m Run
Time with weighted  vest: 24:30

60# kettlebell swings

I decided to try and step my game up yesterday and use the 60# kettlebell instead of the 50 for the days Wod, since it was a short, AMRAP in 8 minutes.  Wow I couldnt believe the difference 10# lbs makes!  I think on my last set, on half of them I was only able to get the weight to my head, not over it.  I definately need to stay on the 50# KB for a while longer until I get my strength up some more! Let me also say that before we even started the Wod we did Snatch work and 5 minutes of max pullups, so I'm sure my arms were dead tired already by the time I got to that 60!

Tuesday's Wod:
5 min max pull ups or push ups

The Power Snatch

10 KB swings 60#
15 SDHP 60#
Rounds: 4

4 min rest

AMRAP 8 min

First WOD with a weighted vest!

Yesterday I decided to do part of my wod with a weighted vest, well it turns out that my husband actually wanted me to do the entire wod with the vest, so I sucked it up and did it.  It was really hard during the wod, and after it, I couldnt get that vest off vast enough, but now, I kind of want to do more wod's that way!
