Today Trainer Molly threw just about everything at us. It wasn't a particularly brutal day, there have been many that were worse, but the sheer number of different motions was a bit different...and good. I realized that after being sick my strength has decreased a bunch but I haven't lost any of my (few) skills. I was able to do 74 double unders when I was warming up. More importantly, when I was screwing around I came REALLY close to doing a muscle up. Before you give me the grenades and horseshoes quote, you need to understand that I know "almost" counts for nothing...but mentally it's a huge lift. I actually was able to get up and turn my wrists over...if I had thrown my head forward I would have gotten it. I may try again tomorrow or Thursday.
Choose 3 goats and do a 10 minute AMRAP of them.
My goats: Box Jumps, KB Swings, Pistols
I did something like 7 rounds. Didn't really keep track.
Why box jumps? The reason I chose box jumps is because for some reason, whenever they are part of a WOD it winds me faster than any other activity. I have no idea why. Breathing? Because it's a fast motion? No idea...but that's why it is in there. I included KB swings because I need to get my form down when doing a 2 pood swing. I did reasonably well with this, but I think I still need to work on keeping my back straight. I'll have to practice with a 1.5 pood from here on out.
7 rounds (!)
6 hanging cleans (115 lbs)
8 get out of pools (or 4 muscle ups which I can't do yet)
Then finished with 4 - 100m runs with 1 minute break between. I need to do this cash out more often. I like it.
My diet is getting much better..finally. I drank my allotted water and also got in my fruits and veggies today. I'm pleased.
My favorite song of the moment
