Bubba bubba.

See that little blister bubble? Yup. That was from yesterday's WOD.
 
Monday, November 5, 2012
 
Warm up: 1k run and Ero warm up
 
A: 7 x 4 Front Squat
The first 3 sets are warm ups, and the last 4 are 70% of 1 RM
 
B: AMRAP 12
4 pull ups
6 clapping push ups
8 standing broad jumps
 
C: Max effort plank hold
 
Results A: My 1 RM is 195 lbs so I was pushing 135 lbs at first. Coach D thinks I could do more so I ended up doing 165 lbs. He wants me to start adding heavier weight so my upper body can get used to it. It was a hard push but I eventually did it. I need to remember to keep my elbows up and my core tight.
 
Results B: I was able to get in 7 rounds + 1 pull up
I FINALLY DID ALL KIPPING PULL UPS IN A WOD! This is definitely a big deal for me! Maybe 5 of the 24 I did were fully successful, but nevertheless, I still did it! I did regular push ups and completed the WOD.
 
Results C: 1:01 ... my goal was 30 seconds. So, I exceeded it. LOL.
 
Paleo Update: I told my Coach about how I'm feeling weak and he thinks I need to add more fat and carbs in my meals. I have a week and half left of this challenge and I haven't cheated!

...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 …
