Welcome to Monday

The warm up today was  1 Pull up, 1 push up, 1 squat; then 2, 2, 2; then 3,3,3 and so on up to 10, in 10 minutes.  I made it through 7 full rounds and even managed 7 consecutive pull ups...which hasn't happened in a long, long time.

So, yay...great warm up.  No time to stand around, however.  Off to run The Jenks Mile!j

400m 2:05
200m 1:01
400m 2:17
200m 1:00
400m 2:21
Total time of slow, but I am running! 

Then, off to our strength component

5 sets of 3 Shoulder Press
My loads:  35-45-55-65-75

And last, but not least, the actual published WOD:

As many rounds as possible in 10 minutes of:

10 Wall ball shots (Men 20 lb ball, Women 14 lb ball)
10 Sumo Deadlift High Pulls (Men 95 lbs, Women 65 lbs)

My rounds:  5 even, Rx

I decided not to hate wall-ball today, but to try and embrace it and see if I didn't feel a bit better about it with a more positive attitude.  I will say that it helped, mentally, perhaps not physically.  But I had some decent sets.  First round was unbroken.  I know.  It's just 10 reps but that's huge for me to get 10 unbroken wall-ball shots!
