Gimp on a roll.

Monday, July 30, 2012

Warm up: 1k jog and regular warm up (I did 200 rope runs just to take it easy on my knee)

A: Back Squat
1x10 @ 75%
1x8 @ 80%
1x6 @ 85%
1x4 @ 90%
2x2 @ 95%
* Rest 2 minutes between sets

B: AMRAP 10
12 pull ups
12 alternating pistol squats
12 hand release (hr) push ups

Results A: 85-95-105-125-135/145
I really need to work on not staying down too long. I need to learn to shoot back up when I'm squatting. Imagine if my knee wasn't a little messed up? I'd probably be doing a little more weight than I have been. Last time I did back squats, I was at 125 lb! Progress :) YAAAASEEEE.

Results B: 4 rounds + 5 pull ups
I was doing jumping pull ups and that's the only thing I scaled down yesterday! I was pleased. My arms are getting stronger and hopefully, HOPEFULLY, I can do a strict pull up in the next few months.

I slept with frozen peas on my knee last night and I know you're not supposed to overdo it with icing but I woke up this morning feeling great! We will see later... I still haven't decided if I'm going to WOD today since today's my only day to see Dan. I want him to WOD with me! lol.

...so about that comfort zone

So, for the past year and a half, I have made it a point to do things to get out of my comfort zone. Even if it's as minuscule as going to farmers market. 
BTW, I went to a farmers market for the first time on Saturday! The BFF has been wanting to go and we finally had the chance to. So, you know how they sell organic and fresh produce? Yeah... We didn't get any of that. However, we did taste test some fruits and it was friggin bombskies! 

Nutella filled Hawaiian donut. What's up. 

BFF got her flowers and I got my macaroons from Munch Bakery. Turns out her dad and my dad golf together. 
Random question: how far would you drive to buy a couple pairs of pants?
To answer that for myself... 80 miles round trip... And the pants weren't even for me, lol. 
Shoutout to the BFF for sticking it out with me! 

After four, and I repeat, FOUR hours of searching for pants, the BFF and I met up with Big Bruddah at Gen KBBQ! Best decision of my life!
Another comfort-zone-breaker... I …

Skee TV: Fort Minor

So let me tell you. I've never won anything... EVER. During my Monday mini break, I was on instagram and saw that Skee TV was having a giveaway. Pretty much just comment on that picture of Mike Shinoda/Fort Minor and that's my entry. 
Skee TV added me on instagram, and commented on one of my pictures (Rawle D. Lewis) saying I was chosen! I emailed them and boom. I got my tickets. 
I followed Fort Minor since Mike Shinoda created it and man, it was AWESOME. And I can knock it off my bucket list - going to a rap/hip hop show. Also got a glimpse of Mr. Hahn!
I don't care what you say. I'm happy AF. 



Since I won, the Skee TV rep hooked it up with some merchandise. Mike Shinoda signed the snapback. I fangirled so hard.

After the show, we managed to head to Guisados and got some mafuggin tacos.
