Wednesday, November 28, 2012
 
Warm up: 200 rope turns and Ero warm up
 
A: Hang Power Clean 7 x 2
 
B: 5 rounds for time
5 hang power cleans
50 yard sprint
*rest 60 seconds between rounds
 
C: 3 x 20 abmat sit ups with max effort pull ups in between each round
 
Results A: 65-85-95-100-105-110-120
I PRed my 2 rep max :) I'm still trying to get the technique down. I think I'm getting under better, but my end position of my feet are too wide. DAMN IT!
 
Results B: 7:27 at 95 lbs
Big B was right behind me and he's all "I'm gonna getcha, Stacy! C'mon!" So it made my sprinting that much faster, lol. One of the other guys there acknowledged my speed. Not the first time I've heard that (during softball, I'd be the 3rd at bat, and I was known for bunting... since I was good at putting the ball down, and I hauled ass... )
 
Results C: I did a total of 12 kipping pull ups between all the sets. I definitely need to practice more, but I can feel where I need to tighten up.
 
Such a good work out that during the WOD, I threw up in my mouth. NO LIE. TMI? I don't care, lol. BTW, does anyone have a US DVD rip of No Retreat, No Surrender? Cuz 1. That's how Big B made me feel today, and 2. It's a good Bruce Lee inspired movie.
 
After my WOD, Nancy texted me and we ended up going to La Puente to see a friend and his new puppy. Look at it. LOOK AT IT.
 
Meet Gizmo.

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 …
