Day 46 Became an unexpected Rest day. After school, I spent a cruel 5 hours doing work for my Emerging Leader Program. Was I upset that I didn’t work out? Of course! Who the hell wouldn’t it. But, works need to get done. No excuses.
Day 47: After a two day rest I was ready to tackle the day. It was a brutal 2 hour workout, In a way, I think I finished most of my gallon of water within that workout. The Meals: Breakfast: Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, Taylor Ham on wheat bread Lunch: Baked Buffalo Wings Snack: Banana with peanut butter Dinner: Braised boneless short ribs with pearl onions, carrots and celery braised in a slightly-spicy Korean chili sauce. Topped with Cilantro, Mint, and Toasted Almonds, served with Sweet Potato Mash. The workout: 15.4: HSPU and Cleans 6x6 of Bench Press w. 6 plank ups and down 6x6 front Squat with 20 DU in between 20 EMOM The first 5: 3 strict pull ups, 6 plank pikes Next 5: 4 back squats at 225 Last 10: 3 strict pull ups, 6 plank pikes And because my biceps were asking for a workout... 4x10 of Curls and dips (45,35,25,20) Cool Down: Row 1000m
Day 48: the Benchmarks
Today was testing Day. As I mentioned before, I have about three workouts that I have selected to do each month to see if there is any progress towards it.
Annie: 50-40-30-20-10 of DU and sit ups.
Last month I finished at 9:13, today I finished at 8:36. I beat my score by 37 seconds. Am I happy? Fuck yea, who wouldn’t be. I still think I could had done better. This was my second time using my new rope, and the shit was just not there. With DU, they are either here or they are gone.
RowBall: 1000m row and 50 wall balls
Last month i finished at 8:13, today 7:05. Thats a 1:08 difference. I hate wall balls. The shit is BALLS! However, this is something amazing. I am consent with the fact that progress is occurring. I honestly believe my time will probably be better if it were done with other people. Its just the edge that you get trying to beat or keep up with the person who is next to you. Workout out alone sucks BALLS (LOL), funny ass word, but the work has to get done.
breakfast: Eggs with kale and bacon
Lunch: about 12 paleo cookies! (Sweet potato, vanilla protein, honey, cinnamon, 3 eggs, almond butter, dark chocolate)
Dinner: Ground Turkey with hella veggies.
Snack: Granola cereal :).
The Weekend was solid. Next weekend I will be in San Fran, the challenge that I will occur is ensuring that my eating habits stay in tact. But of course I will have to try some of their food!
Let’s start the week of strong!
