After a huge PR Monday you never know what you're going to get when you show back up on Tuesday at 0515.  Today was another good day!

EMOM for 10 minutes, do 2-3 HSPU at a level that are challenging to you.

Well, we last left off HSPU with JT about 2 months ago.  The shoulder that was bothering me hasn't bothered me at all in about 2 weeks and that feels awesome.  I started back with my "challenge" at 1 45lb plate and an ABMAT.  I got through all 10 rounds and completed 3 reps each set.  Towards the end I should have made it harder, but I was really scared for my shoulder.  Now I know I CAN do it and can go lower than I think I can.

The conditioning WOD was:
20 pullups (C2B if you have them)
30 burpees
400 m run
30 hand release push ups
20 pullups
Time: 12:30

The metcons are getting a ton easier so as much as I hated our last serious metcon series it was worthwhile and paid off.

On the paleo diet front, I had a HUGE cheat day.  I totally fell off the wagon emotionally and ate a doughnut this morning because its what I though I needed.  It wasn't, but for some sick reason it helped.  I went out to lunch and snagged a piece of pita bread from Chip's meal--he of course has the willpower to resist it.  I was a disaster in the kitchen and had a total failure trying to make my own mayonnaise--twice.  Sigh.  What a disaster. Tomorrow is a new day and its time to hit the sack and just go DO BETTER TOMORROW.

I'm sorry to hear your mayo turned out badly. Those are expensive ingredients. :( If we lived near one another I'd make some and bring it to you!
