breakfast: greek yogurt
snack: coffee with cream and coconut palm sugar (1/4 of a cup)
lunch: leftover chicken and string cheese
dinner: paleo chili
today was a better day in the eating department. i still felt tired from the day before so that’s why i made coffee but then i didn’t really drink any. the chili was so perfect after a really tough WOD. it was:
warmup of 100 meter runs (forward, backward, each side), leg swings, good mornings, and pull-ups. and the strength training was overhead squats. um, yeah. those are hard. way harder than i had anticipated. but i felt like my muscles were learning the movement.
4 rounds of
400 meter run, 10 power snatches (bringing weighted bar from ground to overhead. prescribed was 65lbs, i used 35lbs), 10 meter jump (however many jumps it takes to reach 10 meters)
time: 16:29 (longest WOD so far)
when i had read the WOD earlier in the day i was pretty worried i wouldn’t get under 20 minutes. i am the slowest runner on the planet! that’s why i’m thankful i have a community there to push me. whenever you finish you cheer on the people who are still working and since i was the 2nd to last…i had a lot of encouragement. 🙂 i’ve been sticking with 35lbs on most lifts but i’m going up to 40lbs the next power snatch WOD. there, i said it. now i have to stick to it.
