1000 m swim
I wanted to swim 1800, but the pool got full with a bunch of old people just swimming aimlessly. Without lap lanes, it became dangerous to keep your head in the water. Felt pretty strong today--will hit the pool again later in the week!
20 Min AMRAP
10 DB shoulder Press, 10 Burpee, 10 Box Jump
Total: 9 rounds
So after the pool I came home and ate crap. The weekends away from home and on the road just throw me off! The fridge is empty, I'm sad and bored and what do I do? Eat...crap. Well, that means another WOD is in order. I did CFOT's alternate WOD for the day and boy was it a kicker.
I think this little couplet should have had one more element to it, but regardless, it made you work on your mental game. I used 15lb dumbbells which turned out to be perfect. I was able to do most of the sets of 10 unbroken and some with just a slight rest in the middle. Burpees---oh how i hate thee. They are one of my most improved moves of the year though. As my friend Soni says--JUST KEEP MOVING--DON'T STOP. That's what I did on the burps and the box jumps.
I had a solid sweat going on and people were totally staring at me--"what is that silly girl doing, flailing and jumping around in the corner?". I think it helped that I had my ipod shuffle on me to keep me focused. If it ever stops raining (yes, its STILL raining) I hope to get a long bike ride in one of these days.
