Altoids Ass

Yesterday before I went to go WOD, I had this paleo bar. It was delicious. But I got an allergy from it. You know, throat swelling and ears itching inside and all that. I took allergy medicine but it made me feel sick. I think I was just off yesterday.

Warm up: 1k row and stretching

A: Back Squat
2 x 8 @ 65% of 1 RM
2 x 5 @ 75%
2 x 5 @ 80%

B: "Cindy"
AMRAP 20
5 pull ups
10 push ups
15 air squats

Results A: My 1 rep max is at 185# so far, but I haven't done a back squat since August 10, 2012.
65% - 120#
75% - 140#
80% - 150#
My coach thinks I can do more weight. He said I'm progressing pretty fast that he wants to do a testing to really see where I am and try to challenge me from there.

Results B: 14 rounds + 5 pull ups
For half of the rounds, I did negative pull ups and the other was jumping. I was super sore, had to scale my push ups to knee push ups. In the middle of this all, my coach wanted to see me do a kipping pull up.

Coach D passed by and said it smelled like mint. He asked if I put some minty deodorant on or something. So me being a smart ass, the only response I could think of while WODing was, "it's my ass." and he was like "did you put an altoid up there?" and I said, "YOU KNOW IT!" or something along the lines of that. I definitely need a filter...

I failed to write on the PR board that I did it with a band on Wednesday. But I tried during Cindy anyway. And guess what? Yup. I got another PR! I did 2 kipping pull ups WITHOUT a band! He said I need to practice hollow rocks and learn to control my core and butt to make kipping easier.

I'm pretty sore from this week. And today, I'll get to meet Fran...

HAPPY FRIDAY!

...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 …
