The pic by popular demand! Compliments to Msss Maria!!! I look like rubber in this after Fran photo. hahahaha

Anyways todays WOD was Diane which consisted of,

  • Deadlift (155# & 145#)
  • Handstand push-ups
My time for this one suffered. I want to blame my back but I really need to get more aggressive and make WODs like a mind over matter thing.

My overall time was 00:24:58

My hand stand pushups were a little bit stronger than last time, and they were the only thing that kept me from a 30 minute Diane. I flew right through them, then painfully lollygagged through the deadlifts.

Bots unite! I love each and every one of you! Huggles

What should I be for Halloween?

Ugh, today was Fran. Not only was everyone excited, pressure was high as all the bots and the boyfriend expressed how well they wanted me to perform. Well needless to say I was pushed to making a new PR with all that cheering a crucial coaching. Thanks Cheryl for yelling at me, you kept me on my toes, and Chris, same to you, also thanks for keeping me honest with my pullups. Wooh, that was fun *cough cough*.

Fran consists of,

21 Thrusters

21 Pullups

15 Thrusters

15 Pullups

9 Thrusters

9 Pullups

My overall time was 00:07:38. A minute off my last PR. Good times. Let me tell you, there are few workouts that make you wish you would just die afterwords...Fran is one of them. My arms were on fire, and after I hit those last 9 pullups I went straight to the floor and I stayed there. Love the burn...mmmm....burn. Maria, I'm not sure...what was your Fran time?

So anyways...I feel a new tradition coming on. Sunday morning breakfast outtings. Even if its only once a month (hopefully more often), its always lovally to get out with the gang! Hopefully the breakfast crowd will grow.

5k Finally

Today I ran the 5k and it kicked my butt. I know you guys all wanted me to kick butt and be on the top of the list but I am just not satisfied with my time. I really need to hit a 21 or under 5k time otherwise it just seems void.

My overall time was 00:23:26

I guess next time I'll have to have breakfast first. Empty stomach equals no gas in the tank. And we all know how well a tank without gas allows a car to run.

Anyhow, I will try and update this blog more often! =) love you all. And Cheryl, you kick butt at teaching classes and I cant wait to go on another ride along. The last one was so much fun....I promise not to fall asleep on you next time.

Good times good times. I think every once in a while, if I can get away with it, I will try and kill a WOD with you ladies. It would be nice to have you kick my butt again. Real good motivation. Oh and I' not real sure what I will be for halloween, I'm on a costume budget. We shall see...Freddy needs to be a cheerleader, this pic is proof.

Today I did Moody,

500m row
50 push-ups
500m row
50 squats
500m row
50 burpees
500m row

My overall time was 00:21:16

I need to zone in on my nutrition because I always feel tired now, not to mention the strangest occurence in my arms on Sunday. We all have had muscle fatigue, burning muscles, lead arms, jello, whatever, but on Sunday my arms went numb. It was difficult to get them above my head. It was a feeling so alien that I am not even sure if I can describe it enough. Anyways...I'm glad its gone, and I hope that by improving my nutrition to whatever degree, that I will see improvements.

This is Cheryl after the Fight Gone Bad fund raiser. I'll have you know that after todays WOD, I did just the same thing as Cheryl...I laid there for at least ten to fifteen minutes. My whole body was tense and like lead; even worse than the suffereng of my body was the suffering of my intelligence. Afterwords my speech was impaired and was spoken in fragments, half the time I made no sense.

Todays WOD consisted of,

Complete five individual rounds for time of:
  • 20 pull-ups
  • 30 push-ups
  • 40 sit-ups
  • 50 squats

Rest 3 minutes between rounds and post a time for each round.

My overall time was 00:34:?? I don't remember, the paper is floating around was all your fault. But thank you for motivating me. Girl you kicked butt.

Mary, Maria, I look forward to seeing you two today. Its running and you better show up!....(OR ELSE muahahahahahahaha)

To the right is the fight gone bad crew! What a lovely bunch. Anywho, I haven't been working out as much as I should be so today I tried to do a little catching up. By the way, I really miss working out with you ladies, my times are suffering without you to sweat along side me.

Today I did Fran,

21 Thrusters
21 Pull-ups
15 Thrusters
15 Pull-ups
9 Thrusters
9 Pull-ups

My overall time was 00:09:18, not bad for a first try.

Then later on just before I got off work I tried the max overhead squat 1/1/1/1/1

I did 85/95/105/110F/110F/110F/110F

I was very keen on getting 110# but I just didn't have it today. I guess I could have done 107# or worked my way up gradually, however, I don't regret pushing it. Freddy even recorded my failure and in about 5 days I'll try it again and see is I can get that damned thing all the way through the squat. My goal is to be able to do a body weight overhead squat, and eventually over my body weight. I guess we will just have to wait and see what happens.

I love you BOTS!
