Double Trouble

Yesterday I spent the day outdoors in beautiful Berkeley. It was a nice day with lots of sunshine and a cool breeze. Afterwards, I headed to CFO for the WOD. It was suppose to be my rest day, having worked out 3 days in a row, but the WOD looked too good to pass up and I knew I would have a hard time getting someone to do it with me on a rest day. Boy was I right! This workout was one of the hardest and it took me a whopping 45 minutes to complete it...scaled! Must work on HSPUs!!!! I used an abmat and 2-5 lb plates as a target. I practiced kipping HSPU a bunch with Audge before the workout but couldn't seem to stay upright at the end of the push up. The L-pull ups were by far the hardest part. I was able to do 2 sets of 2 but did the rest as singles. Needless to say, I'm taking the day off today and mostly likely going to Yoga--thanks to Sierra for introducing me to it:)

Yesterday's wod:
Two rounds, of each couplet, for time of:
750 meter Row
20 Handstand Push-ups (to target)

75 pound Thruster, 20 reps
20 L-Pull-ups

My time--> 44:46

Sleep-->8 hours

about 3/4 cup Braised Greens

about 4 oz Grass-fed Beef
Salad: lettuce, green beans, onions, celery, homemade pesto dressing
Raw Flaxseed crackers
about 1/2 Tbs Almond Butter
Supplements--> Fish oil, Multi, Zinc, HCL

CrossFit Munchies

What a week! Last week I got a lot of solid workouts in and set 3 PRs! Since the NorCal qualifiers two weeks ago, I've been really focused on stepping it up on the training floor. Although I was really happy with my performance at the Qualifiers, I realized that I have a lot of room for improvement. That's one of the beauties of CF; there is always room to grow.

So after a week of breaking PRs and consistant training, I've spent the last two days eating everything in sight! I've always had a healthy appetite but this weekend my appetite was threw the roof. I woke up ravenous on Saturday and Sunday and found myself eating every 2 hours. I felt like a teenage boy! Actually, I kinda look like one too:) I guess I had a case of the CF munchies.

New PRs:

-->Deadlift 185# x 1 (previous 180)

--> "Grace" 10:23 rx'd (previous 11:43 @ 80#)
30 Clean and Jerks for Time, 95#

-->"Diane" 13:45: 155#/1 Abmat+2 5lb plates (previous 27:54: 126#/2 Abmats)
21-15-9, reps
Deadlifts, 155# and HSPU
