You think you're tough?

Monday, 7/9/12

Warm up: 1k jog and usual stretching ... I felt pretty okay after the jog... I didn't feel as winded.

A: 15 minutes to find 1 rep max : power clean

B: 5 rounds for time:
3 power cleans 185lbs
12 games standard push-ups
15 pull ups

Results A: For some reason, I was having the worst trouble with my form yesterday and it was pissing me off. I think I was overthinking on what I'm doing (thus, slow movement/transition). I haven't felt that frustrated in a while. It's definitely something I want to work on. I maxed out at 90 lbs.

Results B: I lowered my weight to 85 lbs, you know, just 100 lbs less than Rx, lol. Once I got the rhythm of doing the power cleans, I felt my form get better. Not by much, I mean, at least I didn't hurt myself, right? lol. For the first 3 rounds for the games standards push ups, I did regular push ups. By the 4th round, I scaled down to my knees. By my 5th round, I did half regular, and half to my knees. I felt pleased about that considering my lack of upper body strength. For the pull ups, Coach A scaled it down to 5 negative pull ups (jump and pull myself up, then lower slowly) and 10 jumping pull ups. I swear to Bob that that was pretty damn hard. Although, in such a short time, I could already feel an ounce of strength developing. It took me 13:48.

I'm definitely disappointed with myself and my results for the 1RM power cleans. I put too much pressure on myself. lol. I upchucked right before I left to go WOD, I hope I'm not getting sick so I'm hoping that my lack of consistent form was from my upset stomach.

I was going to go running after, I felt good. Did I go? No... I did, however, get my additional cardio whilst bar hopping with one of my good guy friends. Downside? Getting home at 3:00 am.

I hope I can get some energy in me by the time I WOD today. We'll see. Partying and staying up late isn't my life anymore, lol. I woke up with shoulder pains and tummy pains (not sure if it's from WODing yesterday and/or the disco inferno from last night and/or the alcohol). I only had 2 Midori Sours and I was loopy over that.

What can I say? I'm hardcore.
