10 min AMRAP @ 80%:
amrap CTB pull ups
FLR on rings - 45 sec accumulation
rest 5 min active
7 full round + 2 C2B. Strict C2B (5/3/3/3/3/2/2). My body was not feeling kipping today. I literally got more strict C2B than I did kipping. So I did those bad boys strict and felt elite and shit. Not really....3 is kind of pathetic. Whatevs. Lots of room for improvement. I always underestimate FLR. They were hard. I didn't have to break until the last few rounds though.
15 wall walks
25 HR push ups
35 bent over db rows - 25#/h
25 HR push ups
15 wall walks
Today I found out that I've been doing wall walks wrong my entire crossfit career. I no longer think they're easy. The first 15 torched my shoulders..the HR pushups really weren't tooooo bad..I mean they were hard, but I broke them up into 10-10-5 and it was fine. The rows were questionable. Sometimes I think I'm good at them..other times not so much. The last wall walks sucked. I had to break them up into 5s (sometimes less)...but I got them done. yay. completion. One thing about training by myself is that I've had to become my own cheerleader. Probs not a bad thing...
Muscle up skill work
This is infuriating to me. I can do transitions until I'm blue in the face, but once I get on the rings....no dice. I do think I made some progress today with my hips. Melissa gave me some good cues, so I really have to focus on tightening my butt and keeping my toes down. I'm getting closer but not there yet. There was one attempt where I thrusted so violently (hee hee hee) that I launched myself into the air...actually had time to think about how long I was airborn...and then had to tuck and roll. Progress? yeah, let's call it that. Then I did these muscle up thingies on the cable machine under the watchful eye of big papa paul...which were killer. I now have to do those 3x/week.
Also, big news in the food world...I finally went over 2000 calories! annnnd I managed to consume about 150 grams of protein today (thanks to the TWO burger patties I just wolfed down).
1: Fritatta and paleo muffin
2: Protein shake (post workout)
I knowwww I should consume more carbs, but I was just not feeling food at all. The shake was all I could handle
3: 4 meatballs + sweet potato and sunbutter
4: chia pudding
threw a banana in for some extra carbs
5: quest bar, almonds, and an apple
snacked on these at work...went WAY longer than anticipated and I got very hangry
6: 2 grass fed angus burger patties and baby carrots
my appetite finally caught up with me; was only planning on eating 1 burger and making the rest for later this week...and then I thought I'd eat 1.5....and then before I knew it 2 were gone. Whoops.
2315 calories, 137 carbs, 145 protein! hooooorayyyyy***never in my wildest dreams would I think that I would ever celebrate eating this much..
