Wednesday's WOD

Overhead Squat


then 3 rounds of 
100 m farmers walk (30#)
200 m run
15 pull ups (blue band)


It was my first time doing weighted OHS today, it felt pretty good.  On a side note, I went to the dentist today and was told that my plaque levels were zero to low or something like that.  She started talking about how that was really good and how some people just have different types of plaque that can cause more or less harm.  Then I asked what my levels were the last time I was in 6 months ago and she said that it was moderate.   She  then went on about how diet can affect the plaque in your mouth. We obviously know that eating a ton of sugar, drinking soda, ect is not good for your dental hygiene, but it was interesting to hear how a healthy diet can affect the type of plaque not just the amount.

Tuesday's WOD

KBS (35#)
Pushups (knee)

rest 3 minutes, then

DB push press (20#)
Box jumps (20")


First time using the 35# kettlebell today.  It felt pretty good, I didn't do all the reps unbroken but I definitely think it was time to move up.

Back from Aromas

Monday's WOD

3 rounds of:
2 minutes - Max Strict Pull-ups
2 minutes - Rest

30-13-11  (I was told that I was kipping a little bit, but I wasn't trying to, next time 100% strict)

For Time:
400m Walking Lunge


Wow, what an awesome weekend!  Being able to see so many amazing athletes perform such grueling workouts was so inspiring.  Watching Jason Kalipha collapse to the ground before the first run was over then get up, finish the run, and get 5th place over all was unreal.  I can't wait for next year!!

Wednesday's WOD

Run 10K


I knew it would happen eventually and I was always really scared of this one, but surprisingly it wasn't as horrible as I thought it would be.  My mom and I ran together for pretty much the whole time.  My goal was to finish with out walking and we both did it! Next time sub 60!

zone: 123

Fran won

Tuesday's WOD


21- 15-9
Thrusters (53# 1st round, 43# 2nd/3rd)
Pull Ups (blue band)


I let Fran get the best of me today.  The first round was too heavy and I already felt defeated by the time I was on my 15th rep.  I guess you can't PR every time. 

zone: 122

Goal: Fran RX'd by July 2010

wall ball running

Monday's WOD

5 rounds
200 m wall ball run (10#)
10 burpees


Man that 10# makes a huge difference.  No wonder I used to hate running so much!! After the WOD I worked on my pull ups and hand stands.  Faith gave me a good idea to add one pull up every week.  Last week I did one, so my goal for this week is to link 2 (we'll see how that goes because it's going to be a short week).

zone: 121

Saturday's WOD
Deadlift 3-3-3 reps


4 rounds for time of:

Filthy Fifty

Thursday's WOD

"Filthy Fifty"
For time:
50 Box Jumps (20" box)
50 Jumping Pull-ups
50 Kettlebell Swings (26#)
Walking Lunge, 50 steps (I did squats)
50 Knees 2 Elbows (more like tuck ups...I'm getting higher though)
50 Push Press (33#)
50 Back Extensions
50 Wall-Ball Shots (10# to 8ft)
50 Burpees
50 Double-Unders (tuck jumps)


Wow. That was filthy to say the least.  I was chipping away at everything ok until I got to the last thing, I did about 10 jumps and couldn't breathe anymore.  This was the first WOD I actually thought I might not finnish.  I'd wait a few seconds, trying to take deep breaths then do a few more jumps but the feeling came right back.  But, I knew I couldn't quit.  I've never been one to say I cant do something and it wasn't going to happen tonight.  It made me feel better knowing that there was a highly trained paramedic (my brother) standing a few feet away... just incase.  I don't know how I finished but I did.  My goal for next time: RX'D (hopefully it will be a while)
