Weekly Workouts 1.22 – 1.28

To my single reader in Ireland: Top of da mornin’ to ya.

To everyone else: ‘sup

Sunday, January 22

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.


Monday, January 23


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:

Row (calories)

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.

Tuesday, January 24

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

Wednesday, January 25

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

Thursday, January 26


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.

Friday, January 27

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.
