Happy Hump Day!

The 5 am class was packed this morning!  Makes it kind of fun when there are tons of people. Some of them, though...just make me shake my head.  Breck has the patience of a saint.  Simple things that are super easy to understand have to be explained over and over.  Not sure how some of these people even tie their shoes.


Our strength today was shoulder press.  One of my biggest weaknesses.  Every minute on the minute for 10 minutes - 5 shoulder press at 75% of 1RM.  Well my 1RM last time I checked, was around 90 lbs, but I must have been feeling way strong that day (back in 2011).  Anyway, I started out with 55# and made it through 7 rounds.  Well, the last rep of round 7 was not a full lock out.  Fail.  Then I dropped to 45# for the last 3 rounds. 

The WOD today was actually 3 mini-WODS:

As many reps as possible in 3 minutes of:
400 Meter run   subbed       Row 400m
Max rep box jumps (24”, 20”)   subbed   Max reps Sit ups
My reps:  42

3 Minute rest

As many reps as possible in 3 minutes of:
50 Kettlebell swings (55#, 35#)
Max rep pull-ups
My reps:  5 pull ups, Rx

3 Minute rest

As many reps as possible in 3 minutes of:
Row (Men 500 meters, Women 400 meters)
Max rep wall ball shots (20#, 14#)
My reps:  11 WB, Rx

Haven't used a 14 lb wallball in for-ev-er!!  So heavy.  Ha ha.  I'm going to try and get back to using the Rx weight, though it slows me down so much.  That's the reason I went to a lighter ball to begin with - to keep the intensity level up.  We shall see.

Fun morning, great workout!
