Today was an open gym and I used it as such. I rolled, I squatted a bit, did some step-ups, I whined a bit more, and then I rolled again. Nothing useful came of this session.

5X9 OHS – work to a 9RM, rest 2:00
I got 145# which is 10lb heavier than Cody. Girls rule, boys drool.
27-21-15-9 reps for time of:
Thrusters 95 /65#
Now this is a repeat workout for me. The first time was during my first competition ever. It was only for beginners. I completed it in competition at 11:50 and cried while vomiting in my mouth. This time I finished at 11:20 and didn’t cry or vomit, just collapsed. I call that a win.

Rest day due to my work schedule. I still managed to jog the pup around the bayou a bit though.

Rest day again. Tummy issues and a bit of fatigue. This winter is really slowing me down.

1) 10:00 (strict 10:00) to establish a 1RM Snatch *Rest long enough to change plates and start the clock before beginning #2. I got 125# and called it quits. I could have done more however my back was starting to act up again and I wasn’t going to push it.
2) Every 1:30 for 7:30 (6 total reps) 1 Snatch @ 90% of max from #1 #115 for all sets.
Wodapalooza EVENTS 7/8/9 (click here for full descrition)
• 400 meter Sprint
• 30 Squat Cleans 135/95
• 15 Muscle-ups (scale is 25 C2B)
*with the remaining time, find: 1 RM Snatch
*Time Cap is 12 min
My sprint was 1:35m, then I got 7 into the 15 C2B. I hit 125# again in those 4 minutes. Not bad at all.

So I’ve been thinking about what WODs I am most turned off by at the gym. And they usually all involve running. That’s a ridiculous thing to avoid seeing as it’s one of the only movements that ANY level of athlete can do. So I decided to work it and sign up for a half marathon. I’ve found that I train better with a goal. So today was my first real run and it went a little something like this: run 3 min/walk 2 min x7. This takes 35 minutes to complete. I burned 317 calories and made it 3.24 miles. I took the pup with me for support.
