Happy October!

I'm sorry for the lack of updates. Work is finally picking up and I've been just so busy! I'll add another post of my adventures since the last time I WODed.

This was such a bad day.

Warm up: 200 rope turns, ero warm up

A: Front Squat
1 x 5 @ 60%
1 x 5 @ 70%
4 x 5 @ 75%

B: 3 RFT
400m run
10 hand stand push ups (or hand release push ups)
15 hang squat cleans 135/95 (or 10 hang cleans)

Results A: I was working off at 205# 1 rep max...
125-145-155 x 2 sets. I didn't even get to finish. I was so slow and weak on Monday, it was absolutely ridiculous. I couldn't keep my heels down, my elbows up. Everything I did was just WRONG.

Results B: 17:17 at 75%
Again, I was so weak. I couldn't get my hang squat cleans down and it was really upsetting me. I was fine with the hand release push ups, but GOD. I have never been so disappointed in my life.

I went to the LA Fair on Sunday, and I ate a lot of crap foods. Don't get me wrong, they're delicious... but it was a real slap on the face when I couldn't perform to my highest potential on Monday. On top of that, I went bungee jumping and rode a mechanical bull for the first time. I was already sore from that too. UGH. FAIL FAIL FAIL. Lesson learned. Definitely.

I decided to take the afternoon off from work. It was Dan's first day off in 2 months so I wanted to take some kind of advantage of that. I ended up WODing at noon for the first time.

Warm up: 1k run and ero warm up

Advanced and Beginner A: Push Press 5 x 3

Advanced B:
AMRAP 12
6 power snatches
8 push press
10 sit ups

Beginner B:
AMRAP 10
6 push press
8 pull ups
10 sit ups

I'm no longer doing the Beginner WODs but I like knowing just how different the levels are.

Results A: 55-65-75-95-105-115 PR :)

Results B: 7 rounds + 6 power snatches at 65 lbs. Rx was 75# but I didn't know, I should have asked lol.

I felt like I did really well, except the fact that I didn't do the prescribed weight. In my defense, it wasn't on the WOD board, lolol.

Happy 25th Birthday to me!
Yeah. Seriously. lol. As a challenge, I attended the 5 pm ADVANCED class. Two things: 1. I was scared because it was advanced and 2. I was the ONLY girl. Talk about intimidation.

Warm up: 1k run and ero warm up

A: 15 minutes of gymnastics practice

B: 5 RFT
5 wall climbs
7 toes to bar
9 burpees

Results A: I practiced doing kipping pull ups, but my momentum was off. So I ended up practicing the kipping motion. I also practiced hand stand push ups.

Results B: 12:18, scaled the toes to bar to knees to chest
It was such a hard work out. I didn't realize that it looked fun on the WOD board but doing it was a kick in the ass. It was definitely a great experience WODing with all the experienced guys. It was one hell of a motivation.

I plan on going today and we're doing deadlifts. Must be careful with my back. I think Tuesday/Wednesday's WODs made up for Monday's epic fail. I can't wait for the women's lifting seminar next weekend. I really want to get my cleans down.

...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 …
