Weak SAWWWCE. what I was yesterday. I don't know if it's because TOM is in town or because I ate a couple fried bananas yesterday... okay. No judging, lol.

Warm up: 1k jog and stretch... one of the members brought their puppy to run with us. Nothing more motivating to run than a dog running right behind you...

Advanced A: Front Squat
1 rep every 30 seconds for 7 minutes @ 85% of 1 rep max

Beginner A: Front Squat 5x5

Advanced B:
7 push press 165/120
14 lateral box jumps 24"
21 toes to bar
7 push jerks 165/120
14 lateral box jumps
21 toes to bar
7 split jerks
14 lateral box jumps
21 toes to bar

Beginner B:
3 rounds for time
7 push press
14 box jumps
21 abmat sit ups

Coach D suggested I do the beginner work out. I wanted to do the advanced one, but I'm glad I didn't. I felt super weak yesterday.

BEGINNER RESULTS A: 85-105-115-120-130

Results B: 7:31 at 85# using a 20" box

I felt super fatigued yesterday during the WOD. Goes to show that eating Doritos the night before and having fried banana (I'm so Filipino, right, lol) for a snack really killed it for me. Lesson learned!

At the end, I practiced more kipping pull ups. I'm getting better. Some more people at the gym were helping me out and watching, giving advice on how to do it better. I MUST DO THIS.

WODing must have made me feel better because when I got home, Steven was helping me out with my double unders. I need to remember to not get excited when I do a double under and keep my hands closer to my body.

Practice and Progress EVERY DAY. Even if it's a little.


Popular posts from this blog 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 …

Skee TV: Fort Minor

So let me tell you. I've never won anything... EVER. During my Monday mini break, I was on instagram and saw that Skee TV was having a giveaway. Pretty much just comment on that picture of Mike Shinoda/Fort Minor and that's my entry. 
Skee TV added me on instagram, and commented on one of my pictures (Rawle D. Lewis) saying I was chosen! I emailed them and boom. I got my tickets. 
I followed Fort Minor since Mike Shinoda created it and man, it was AWESOME. And I can knock it off my bucket list - going to a rap/hip hop show. Also got a glimpse of Mr. Hahn!
I don't care what you say. I'm happy AF. 

Since I won, the Skee TV rep hooked it up with some merchandise. Mike Shinoda signed the snapback. I fangirled so hard.

After the show, we managed to head to Guisados and got some mafuggin tacos.
