It is COLD! I was dreading the running part of the WOD today because of the cold, and the wind. The temp was just below 32°, and the wind chill was like 20°. Fortunately the runs were just 400's and so not too miserable, but I was slow as usual.


3 Rounds for time of:

400 Meter run
10 Clean & jerk (Men 135 lbs, Women 95 lbs)

My time: 16:06 Rx

I was really aiming for under 15 minutes on this one. I figured 3 minutes per 400m run, and under 2 minutes on the C&J every round, because my Grace time is like 5 minutes or less, but not sure what went wrong here. Ha ha. The combination of running and C&J is way different than just Grace. Well for me anyway. Some of the guys had really fast times.

Strength today was Squat Clean & Jerk, 1 lift every 2 minutes for 20 minutes
(Or if you're going light, 1 lift every minute for 20 min)

I did: 65-70-75-80-85-95-105-115-125(F)-120

My PR on a jerk is 135. I failed on the 125 because I didn't get under the bar fast enough to lock out properly. C&J is one of my favorite lifts. Need to work on my form and speed!!


  1. Gosh.... great workout!

    Yes, isn't it great that Churchill is finishing today? It's been so cold, I've been really rooting for him and his buddies.

  2. Hey, Angie... wonder if you can help me find a blog (I think it was a blog, maybe a website) that I got to via links on your blog but now I can't find it again. It was about primal eating and the author was talking about how much protein, fat, and carb are needed for various levels and types of activity. I can't find it again!! I've been to all your links and from them to other links but I can't find it again! :-(

  3. Oh wait! I did find it! It's in Mark's Daily Apple, it was just hard to find the specific post I'd been reading. Finally found it! Thanks for having the link in your sidebar, great new reading!

  4. Glad you found it, Ellie! I follow the Primal Blueprint and it really has worked for both me and my husband!
