Well if you can’t tell by my lack of posts, its been a very busy month for me. Time has just flown by! Since the competition I’ve basically just been bugging my coach to tell me what to do to work on my skills. We ended up having a lovely hour pow wow about what I need to do if I want to get serious about getting better at the basics. So currently I am on a push up and pull up regimen to do every day after the wod. So I’ve started that….
I’m also trying to remember to be better at not killing myself every single day. And I even took 3 whole days off from anything! On Thanksgiving I ran my annual 5k Turkey Trot race with my mom and my brother. Now, I’m a klutz, I’ve fallen in this race basically every year. Last year was the 1st year in about 5 that I haven’t fallen. So my goals this year were to; not fall and to have someone give me a beer. See the course goes past this bar 2x- once on the way out and once on the way back in. I’m happy to say… I accomplished both of my goals- so it was basically a Thanksgiving Day win.
So after Thursday, I didn’t do any working out for 3 whole days because I figured after many months of 2 a days and not taking more than 1 day off a week, my body deserved it. Although I don’t know if my body really appreciated it because we did Fran this morning. This was the first time I’ve ever done Fran… I’ve done variations of Fran with thrusters and burpees or Double unders, but never actual Fran.
So Fran consists of thrusters and pull-ups at 21-15-9 and my time was 14:09, not exactly the 2 minutes that Camille does, but I’m just happy I finished it and didn’t stop because I really wanted to. My goal is going to be that the next time we do it (in spring/summer) I take like a few minutes off and I do it fully Rx. I can do the thrusters Rx, but the pull-ups not so much…
So anyways, my body felt really sluggish during it and I don’t know if it is because my body has so much rest or if (realistically) it’s because of all the crap I ate over Thanksgiving. Now, I’m paleo so I don’t eat milk products, grains, corn, etc. And all I ate over Thanksgiving (Thursday-Saturday) was cheese, bread (cornbread), soda, wine, chips, dip, stuffing, clam chowder, etc. I went absolutely nuts. And it was fun while I was doing it but my body quickly reminded me how much it did not appreciate such crap. I kept getting headaches and stomachaches from all the food I don’t normally eat. So while it was fun, I’m happy to be back on my normal eating schedule of meat, veggies, nuts, and fruit.
This week is my last week of classes and then I have 2 weeks of finals. And then I will be done with my first semester of law school! Seems absolutely crazy, but there it is! So that’s it for now, I’ll probably be MIA for the next month again with studying and all.
So until later, TTFN.
