Really, I'm not sure how I forced myself to get out of bed today.  I am so sore.  My ass hurts when I sit in a chair, or walk, or move.  Or rather I should more delicately say, "my glutes hurt".  Ha ha!  We all know I'm not delicate though, right? 

Anyway, I pried myself out of bed, got ready and dragged myself down to CFJ with a  positive attitude, and the idea that I would push myself to get this done, no matter what!

For time:

1200 Meter run
30 Kettlebell swings (Men 55 lbs, Women 35 lbs)
30 Toes to bar
800 Meter run
20 Kettlebell swings
20 Toes to bar
400 Meter run
10 Kettlbell swings
10 Toes to bar

My time:  28:01

I had gone into this thinking it would be a solid 25 minutes for me. For some reason my new found skill of kipping toes to bar has just gone out the window.  I think I maxed out at a 3 kipping reps today.  I had some twos, but mostly it was a grind of singles.  At one point, Jennifer looked over and suggested I half the reps.  My answer was, "No, I'm doing the whole thing".

I started out this week with the idea of not scaling anything if I didn't have to.  I did Rx weight on everything this week, but I did scale box jumps.  But on something like KBS and TTB - no way am I scaling.  This was a grudge match between me and the clock, and I wasn't going to cave in and scale anything.  So I gutted it out and finished.  I left the gym at 6:15, feeling somewhere between delirious and high as a kite.

We'll call it a success!!

But before all that, we did the strength:  Hang Squat Cleans

My loads:
125 - PR by 20 lbs!!!!!
135 (f)
130 (f)

So I got a big PR and that made my day.  I went for a higher one and failed.  Strictly a form issue - I had the height and I had the weight, but I didn't get under the bar (on the 135).  On the 130 I had the bar too far in front and instead of hitting my target, I hit my thighs

BUT I STILL GOT A 20 LB PR!!!  Woo hoo!!!!!!!!!

TGIF, my friends!!
