I went to visit my family over the weekend and basically ate all weekend. I left on Thursday and came back on Sunday...not working out at all.
So I knew I was coming in today...and wanted to get a good WOD in so I could kickstart/jolt my system. Shock my fat ass back into a calorie burning furnace. Well it worked. Like all workouts, there were highs and lows.
Let me start with the HIGH!!! WOOHOOO!!! (claps all around for me)
*today I tried a new strategy that seemed to work OK for me. I am a horrible runner and I hate it and I suck at it. I know you have to do it and I will bitch and moan forever but I will do it. Anyways...I used to struggle and struggle trying to get a good pace. Today I tried a new one...I know I am good for short bursts. Not a nice settled pace a literal burst. I will give you 10-15 seconds of 90%. So what do I do in that time? Make it the most efficient possible right? Cover the most ground I can right? So that is what I did. Knowing I can only "run" for 10-15 seconds...I took nice long full strides so I could cover the most distance in the burst I have. It seemed to work. I will try to perfect and streamline this technique and see how it goes.
10 x sit ups
10 x scorpions
10 x mountain climbers
10 x squats
Deadlift work to 5RM
5 x 5
(drum roll please)
I got to 335# for my 5. I maybe could of went to 345 or 355. Maybe. 335# felt pretty good! YAY FOR ME!!!
I had to enjoy this HIGH..and this great feeling of accomplishment because as soon as the WOD came it was game over.
25 x burpees
20 min cap
I DNF...I completed 3 rounds in 19:13
so yeah...not good but not terrible. I am happy I did 3 under 20 mins.
I am planning on coming back tomorrow...since I may not be able to come in on Thursday. So check back and see if I make it in!
