On a related note, I saw an Eric and Kathy (101.9 The Mix) facebook post where they asked people how many hours, on average, they sleep per night. Most people were around 4 - 6 hrs. That scares the shit out of me that I'm probably only going to sleep less as I get older, not more. I feel like I struggle to get all of the things that I need to get done now, let alone with kids, pets, and a house of my own in the mix.
So, on to today. I had a coffee from Dunkin' Donuts this morning on the way from location to location at work. I didn't even finish it. I didn't snack in the morning. Around 12:30 pm I ran to Chipotle to get a salad. I ordered it with the fajita veggies, pork, mild salsa, and guacamole. I must say that this is growing on me. Mark made me order it a year ago when he was on paleo and I gave him the death stare the entire time I was suffering through eating it. Before Crossfit I had a few raspberries and a piece of turkey jerky. I hate eating dinner so late, but Mark's making us a steak right now with some veggies and avocado.
I did the OLY wod again today because the other WOD had some movements that I thought I should stay away from until my shoulder feels better. Our workout was:
Clean & Jerk (except I didn't do the jerk): 50% x 3, 60% x 3, 70% x 3, 75% x 3, 70% x 3
- I did all of my sets, but even though I didn't go overhead with anything my shoulder started hurting. Luckily by the time it was getting in the way of my movements, I was nearly done. I felt that after Cori gave me some adjustments, things went better with this tonight. I started from the hang and as I mentioned didn't jerk, so I was able to concentrate harder on the part that trips me up. By the end, I think I looked pretty good, in spite of a bit of pain.
- I worked up to about 44 lbs today for my 75% which is great for me. I liked going from the hang today and I just like this lift in general. Its so fun to do and to watch other people do. I'm going to link to it again in case you're unfamiliar.
- By the time I got here, I was exhausted physically. I was stressed, too, so also mentally. This didn't make for a great combo. My 1RM is around 100 lbs, so the percentages are easy. I made it through 3 sets and the a couple reps on my 75% ones before I just knew I needed to throw in the towel for the day. I jumped back down to my 60% weight and did 5 more reps.
- Not really sure what to say about these - they were okay.
