Oof! Really wanted to go to the morning class, but I just couldn’t get out of bed in time. Ended up hanging out with a friend for the afternoon and planning a trip to NYC for Wednesday. Back in my younger years I had my earlobes stretched to about an inch. Now, since I’m going to start interviewing for jobs since I’m graduating in May, I’m thinking it’s time to get them surgically repaired. I haven’t worn larger jewelry in them in yeaaaaaaars, so I figure now is as good a time as any! Also, in this picture, you can see my itty bitty baby traps (and power clean bruises from Friday)! I’m so excited! Plus my lobes. My body is in constant evolution, always will be, and I love that.
- Back Squat 1-1-1: 135-140-145. This is great. This is soooooooo great! I’ve been feeling “eh” about my squatting the last two weeks because I felt like I had lost a ton of strength through December. But I felt pretty good today, and decided to go for it. Last time we did the CrossFit Total I hit 155 as my 1RM back squat. I was worried that I wasn’t going to get up to that for my next 1RM, but now I’m pretty confident that I’ll be able to at least tie it! Woo! Need to get the heck out of my head when I squat and just DO IT. Shut up and SQUAT.
WOD for Time: 11:17
5 Rounds of:
- 4 Power Snatches: 42lbs, Level I.
- 6 Overhead Squats: 42lbs, Level I.
- 8 GHDs: Injury Reserve, (Rx was 8 toes-to-bar) hands still healing from the tears on the toes-to-bars & pull-ups on Friday.
- 10 Box Jumps: 20″, Rx.
Whew. I’m really trying to be smart after taking December off. I started with 55lbs (Level II) for the power snatches and OHSs, but after the first round, I dropped down. I didn’t want to have another meltdown, and my wrists were already killing me, so I dropped the weight. The snatches weren’t bad, but the OHSs were killer. I’m proud of myself for backing off though, which is awesome. I have been pushing myself a little too hard during the WODs, and it’s just a matter of time before I really screw myself over.
