WOD are you doing??

Can you believe June’s practically over? That means it’s almost July.  And it’s HOT.  It’s perfect for people like me who keep their apartment at 78 degrees and feel comfortable!  It also means that working out at 5:15am is glorious and I don’t sweat out 10 pounds just during the warm up!

Speaking of WODs, I have had some killer ones since I last wrote.  Let’s start with last week…

Lately, Wednesday’s have been my day off since my schedule works around it and having a planned day keeps me really consistent.  BUT, on the Wednesday that I decided to WOD, I got stuck with doing tons of my weaknesses.  Running and burpees. Puke.

WOD:

1600m Run

150 Double Unders

50 Burpee

800m Run

100 Double Unders

35 Burpee

400m Run

50 DU

20 Burpee

True story.

Then:

There was some “trouble” with our lovely neighbor next door who decided that the members doing farmer’s carry in the parking lot was hazardous and he caused quite the scene.  Little does he know, we renamed the WOD for him.  CrossFitters seem harmless until they get their WOD interrupted! Ha!

On Saturday, I hit up a SWOD (sister WOD) with Molly and it was a beast.

5 Rounds:

5 tap & go power cleans (I used 105#)

5 burpees

200m sprint

rest 3 min.

Then after the last round:

3 rounds

21 KB swings (53#)

rest 1 minute

BRUTAL.

That’s my attempt of writing down my times during my rests.  It was fun to chase someone on the WOD and successfully stay unbroken for all the swings.  SWODs are always so fun!

Yesterday, I got to do my favorite girl WOD- Annie!  I got 6:36 and am not sure if it’s a PR, but I know my last time was 6:30-something so it’s whatever.  Let’s just say that my abs are screaming at me and I have abmat @ss.  I didn’t realize it until I got in the shower… Yeeeeoooooch!

Then I got to make sure that my clavicle bones were strong and do some hang cleans today:

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1:

hang cleans (115#)

double tap pushups

lateral hops over bar (R/L = 1)

I have been obsessed with all types of cleans since I was taught how to do them, so I was pumped to see some heavier sh*t thrown in there!  Now my collar bones and thumbs kill, but it’s all worth it in the end!!

In one month, I will be in Missouri with a boat load of CrossFitters floating down the river!  It’s going to be one crazy @ss time and I am so ready to do it! I can only imagine how many handstand attempts and woozy WODs will be tried… As the saying goes, work hard, play hard, right?!

I must leave now.  I’m sitting outside (yes, it says it’s 98 degrees – told you I’m a freak) and just looked up and saw 3 wasps nests.  Bzzzzzz.

A total 180 in 10 minutes

Frustration just drained into my blood.  I needed to get away from my humid and sticky apartment and get my final paper for a class written, so I drove to Starbucks, ordered a Vanilla Rooibos Tea, opened up my computer, got out my folder that had the instructions for the final in it and…. no paper.  Son of a…  And I’m not about to pack up my stuff, drive home, get my paper, and drive back out here.  Is that being stubborn?  Lazy?  Maybe.

All I know is that it’s been one of those days.  You know, the ones where you drop every third bundle of papers during delivery, where it’s 100% humidity out and your hair looks like you’ve rubbed a balloon all over it, and you’re so bloated that you feel like wearing oversized t-shirts and lying around all day.  Yeah, one of those days.  I’m not being a negative Nancy here or anything (that’s never the answer to anything!) but I’m just putting it out there and accepting it.

Two days of class and three finals stand between me and summer.  And by summer, I mean a 12-week, full-time, no-pay internship.  At least I like the place I’ll be at and the people there!  Have you gotten the drift that I can’t wait to be done with school??  I’m ready to go back to being a full-time gym rat and not worry about assignments or class.

Today, my last ever fitness column was published in the Daily Vidette.  Want to see it?  Here ya go.  It will be weird to get out of the routine of doing those!

Want to know something cool?  I forgot to subtract one minute off my WOD time yesterday (since I started with 1:00 on the timer).  That boosted my ego a bit yesterday as I remembered it!  Yesterday’s brutality, I mean WOD, consisted of:

4 rounds:

20 front squats (95#/65#)

20 push ups

Front delts were on FIRE!  A good burner though.  Can’t say the same for today’s…

16 minute AMRAP:

run 400m

15 push press (95#/65#)

This one was more of run, burn the shoulders for a second, and run again.  My least favorite thing.  And it was even sweeter that the smell of Dairy Queen was wafting in my mouth and nose as I was scooting along my 400m.  Gross.  This WOD sucked the life out of me and it was necessary to fall to the ground after the last push press rep was done at 15:56.

Thank god for WODs or else I would be a total b!tch some days.

Anywho, today is day 36 of Whole30.  I honestly have just lost count and it feels normal to eat this way all the time which is awesome.  I made-a some more-a MEATZA! and added some broccoli slaw (thanks for the suggestion, Liana!) on top and more olives since those are bomb.  Currently, I am using my dehydrator to dry out some zucchini to make “chips” so I’m sure I’ll munch down on those soon.  I keep saying I want to make some sauces for stuff; I guess the rain and nasty weather has made me super duper lazy and I haven’t accomplished much lately.  Besides being a clutz (klutz? hm.. you get the point).

Since sitting down and being a clumsy mess, the sun has started to shine and I can see the blue sky!  This time it’s the real blue, not clouds about to burst out some rain.  Woohoo!  Thanks for listening to what goes on in my head.  This blog and O.A.R. radio have kept me sane for the day.  I might actually get up and go walk around for a bit since I can feel my hams and hips tightening up every minute I sit here. I swear I’m going to start bringing my lacrosse ball wherever I go and sit on it to rub my hammies.  People already stare when I wear my knee socks, vibrams, or have chalk all over me, so it’d be nothing out of the ordinary to mobilize in public.  Right?
