WOD was Fran at CFA-
I had such a horrible experience with Fran at my L1 cert that I was not looking forward to doing it again- but I digress... it was much better than I expected. My old time was Rx'd at 8:48- pretty darn slow. Today it was 6:36- much better. Not a bad way to send out 2011.
So I am filling in a week- so I won't have the food or sleep components- I know, I'm lame! Anyway, this sucked and left me feeling weak and wounded.

Turns out the Big Dawgs blog follows an on Tues-Thurs, Rest Fri, on Sat and Sun, rest Mon schedule... not ideal for me. So, I did yesterday's to get a taste and am still trying to decide if I should follow a week behind and rest Thurs and Sun as I always do- or change my schedule. Having to continuously work out alone on Sunday really sounds like a drag, so I think I'll follow a week behind. This way I will always know what is in store!
On another note, I coached my first solo classes this week- super fun and becoming more and more at ease!
So today's training was this (although I am going to redo in the coming week in that I didn't increase the weight through the FS sets) :

So much has changed but I'm going to pick up like nothing happened- just a big difference in my numbers and times :)
Today I had a lot of time so I started with cleans- my favorite, and decided to end with Jackie.
Sleep: 11p-8a uninterrupted
Food: 10 a Coffee w/ cream, zone bar around 11a, 1p huge salad w/ 3oz chicken and EVOO, snack of 1.5 oz turkey, ~4 almonds, small apple
Dinner: 6 pm 4 oz gf ground beef- farmer salad with apples and sunflower seeds, brussels sprouts
Snack- small bowl popcorn w/ coconut oil and nutritional yeast
It looked like this:
Cleans 2x10- increase each round- fails allowed
95x2x2, 105x2x2, 115x2x2, 120x1xf, 120x2, 120x2
Felt really good today- 120# was easier than expected.
Jackie- did in October in 9:17- today time was 8:36- I'll take it. My row was much better- paced at 2:15 and felt strong off the rower.
Thrusters: 15, 15, 10, 10 (should have done 10s)
Pullups: 10, 5, 5, 8, 2 (should have done 5s)
Going to start the "being" portion of training from OPT Big Dawgs Friday...

Strength/Skill Work Box jumps: Complete 5-7 sets of 3 moving up in height only as you can ensure a safe, soft landing on the box and on the jump down as well. Focus on taking off for your next rep from where you land rather than walking around before the next rep.
This was fun- I had forgotten how much fun it is to challenge yourself to higher and higher box jumps! I PR'd at 34"- 4" more than my last PR of 30".
Complete 5 rounds of the following for time:
9 Hang Power Cleans
6 Push Jerk
Due to an Oly lift session with Shanna in the afternoon- I only did three rounds at 65 lbs. It was still really hard! My time was 5:16 for three rounds- so theoretically it would have been 8:45ish. My last time on 8/21/10 was 7:18 at 52lbs.

Strength/Skill Work Front squat: 5×5 @ 3013 For some of you this will mean a new 5RM. For most of you this will be a time to work on technique and speed coming out of the squat. Work up in weight as you feel. Drop back down if you are unable to maintain tempo. Rest ~2 minutes in between sets.
This was a difficult movement for me in that apparently I get my momentum from the descent. Descending slowly really slowed my ascent. Anyway, my sets looked like this (I did one extra for fun):
35x5, 55x5, 75x5, 85x5, 75x5, 75x5
I worked with Miriam and she was awesome- we have so much fun.
In teams of 3 or 4 complete a 5,000m Row
One rower per team
While one person on your team is rowing take turns completing as many burpees OR double unders as possible with only ONE person per team may be doing burpees/jump rope at a time.
Each burpee =one second off your overall 5k time.
Every three double unders=one second off 5k
Every six single unders=one second off 5k
This was a fun WOD- our overall time was 22:59 and minus burpees/DU/SU was 16:30. Our team was Miriam, Franklin, Chris (from VA) and me. I ended up rowing 1500 m and did only DU's in sets of 20 or so... not too shabby considering I have been struggling with double unders. Miriam was a champ with the burpees and Chris and Franklin rocked it out on the rower.
