I have been such a lazy blogger. I’m “temporarily retired” at the moment, which should mean I have gobs of time to update my blog and entertain my loyal readers, but what it actually seems to be translating into is that I’m NEVER at my computer. Wow. Who knew I wasn’t really THAT addicted to technology?
Anyhoo, rather that bore you to the point that you want to eat gobs of chocolate with all my workouts since last week, I’m just starting fresh with today. Goals not really hit last week, but I made forward progress so I’m focusing on the positive.
SWOD: Front Squat 5×5
3×10 single leg RDL
3×10 steps R and L in little circle band
Front Squat Was:
1×10 zombie @ 33
Still battling to get my “oomph” back. I know the strength will come back eventually, but it’s frustrating as hell to be struggling with half of what I used to be able to squat no problem.
8 minute AMRAP
5 hang power cleans
5 shoulder to OH
**10 DL penalty every time you drop the bar**
Score: Honestly, no idea? I used 53 lbs (65 was Rx, and I could have done it, but I would have ended up doing a LOT of DL methinks). I did 4 rounds total of DL, but literally could not tell ya how many rounds of the actual workout I did. I kept breaking on something silly like my 3rd power clean, so my brain had to remember 10 deadlifts, then that I still needed to do 2 more cleans, so all the other numbers fell out of my head.
Oh well still a great workout.
First time on my bike outside in almost 10 weeks! Due to a bunch of medical complications, I had to put riding on the back burner for a loooong time. I was SO excited that it was sunny and warm enough today to get out there.
Did an easy 10 miles at a 15ish mph pace. I’ve definitely lost some endurance, but man I LOVE my new bike. I barely had a chance to break it in before my hiatus, and I’m really excited to put in some miles to get ready for an upcoming 65 mile ride the last week in March!
