Where’s Michelle?

Strength:
Deadlifts
3(135#)x 3(185#)x 3(205#)x 3(205#)

 

WOD:
5 Rounds
3 Mins:
200 Meter Weighted Run (15# Kettlebell)
As many reps as possible of Clean & Jerk (65#, Rx)

 

Round 1 (10), 2 (10), 3 (9), 4 (9), 5(10)

 

My groin was still a bit sore and I could feel it during the run! I tried to follow the Pose method during my run but I think it fell apart quickly. It was hard to increase my speed. Therefore, I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ve killed my “fast” muscles!

 

The workout went ok. I didn’t feel very strong during the deadlift, but the clean and jerks weren’t too heavy. It took me 1+ minutes to do the run, so I only had about 1 1/2 minutes to do my cleans. Not very happy with the low numbers, but at least I was consistent!

 

Tonight’s meal was Beef Stir Fry and I have to say it was quite yummy!

 

 

Some evil person brought Halloween candy to work ALREADY! Don’t they know most of us are trying to eat healthy? Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, Hershey’s Chocolate Bars, Kit Kats, Snickers….mmmmmm…chocolate!

AMRAP It Up!

WOD:
15 Minute AMRAP
10 Wallballs (16#)
10 Toes to Bar (mod to Knees to Chest)
10 Box Jumps (Short Box)
6.20 (6 complete rounds and all but box jumps into 7th (20 reps))

Felt great doing today’s workout. I was able to do all wallballs with the 16# ball without too much pain. Don’t get me wrong, it was tough but doable. My hands ripped again doing the Knees to Chest but not nearly as bad as yesterday or the time before. I tried my best to just hook my hands so I didn’t tear them, but it’s harder than it appears! The box jumps were slow, but not too bad. Glad I’m able to do them now without having to modify down to step ups.

I got my order of Eatology in today. Some of the boxes were broken. One had to be thrown away because it was busted too much. They were packed very well (Styrofoam and bubble wrap) and the outer box didn’t look too damaged (was dropped on one corner) so I’m not sure what happened there. I’m not upset, just surprised. Had to throw away the meatloaf…too bad! hahaha

Tonight I ate the Chicken Creole. It wasn’t bad. It wasn’t very spicy, which in my head a Creole should be. It was a little bland, but not overly so. Of course, it was much better than Lean Cuisine! ┬áPlus, it had okra, cabbage, and other veggies I’m not a fan of and I was able to eat them without getting grossed out!

 

I’ve found a race challenge I would LOVE to do. Who wouldn’t want to race in Italy? The pricing is a bit much so I’ll have to save up. Anyone want to join me?!
