Emily's workout log

I figured better a little late than never. Besides, starting with this one is kind of fun.

WU: Cindy (2 rds)
Form training: Cleans 5x3 55 lbs

Workout: OH MY ACHING BALLS (3 rds with an 8 lb med ball)

400m run (yes, with the ball)
15 FS
15 Thrusters
15 Cleans
15 PJ

Thoughts: Where the hell am I supposed to carry this ball on the run? My quads and hamstrings were taking turns cramping when we finished. I am wondering if I can get off the couch without falling over. I'll post my time when I get it on Monday. I forgot to ask.

Re: Emily's workout log

WU: Cindy (OHS done with PVC, 2 rds)
20 med ball cleans (8 lbs)

Workout: (4 rds)

5 DL (103 lbs)
10 PU (rings)
15 WB (8 lbs)
20 KB swings (16 kg)

To finish: 200 m OH barbell walk (33 lbs)

Thoughts: Having meetings at work all day and being a captive audience for lunch, my only option was a big ol' sammich from Panera. I almost puked in my second round and then my stomach and I did battle for the rest of the time. As I was finishing my walk, a potential new guy was just walking in to check out the affiliate. He saw me coming in doing something between screaming, grunting, and crying with a nice ugly grimace on my face. What an intro! I am just coming back from taking an unexpected and very unwanted 5 day break. I am so glad that I'm planning on going back the next three days in a row. I can't go that long without CF ever again! I felt like poop.

Re: Emily's workout log

Emily- Thanks for posting on my log on the Rest Day Q&A. I love the looks of "Oh My Aching Balls" as well as the name. I'm writing that one down, for sure. Also love your signature line.

Re: Emily's workout log

WU: Cindy (2 rds)

Workout: (4 rds)

400m run
20 box jumps (18"--yeah, I know, I'm working on it)
10 push press (43 lbs)

28:43

30 knees-to-elbows

Thoughts: I still hate running with an ardent passion. I know. I should tell you how I REALLY feel. I had rowed instead of running in the past, but at some point in time, I just need to (wo)man up and learn to run. I still hate it. Whatever. I still felt a thousand times better today. I almost blew one of the box jumps, but managed to save it... and my shins. I'd never done push presses before with weight, and it felt heavy, but I was still able to finish the workout. Something I've noticed is that when I really get to the point of failure, my body will lift unevenly. My left side is better at exploding and my right side is better at lifting. I guess I can chalk it up to fencing for 12 years as a kid. Yay for asymmetrical sports!

Re: Emily's workout log

The running will get better. I'm prime example of that. Not that I'm fast, but running has always left me out of breath and totally gassed. It's gotten much, much better!!

I really hope so. I know it's a mental block. I do have to say that the very beginning of the run always feels like a little bit of a break, but then it starts getting harder and harder. Ugh. At what point did it start getting a little easier for you?

Re: Emily's workout log

WU: Cindy (2 rds)

Workout: Kelly (8 lb ball, 19" box, 4 of 5 rds complete)

I'll get my time later.

Thoughts: I know my huge weakness is metcon. Sue stopped me at 4 rounds because I was killing myself trying to complete it. I just completely run out of steam so quickly. I know that this will get better with time. My shins were also bothering me, because I was cornerworking this weekend for motorcycle races. I was in some pretty high crash corners, so I was sprinting back and forth and back and forth up and down a hill in hiking boots, which isn't so hot for these tender shins. I feel like the workout actually helped the soreness in my shins. Well, it at least distracted me from it.

Re: Emily's workout log

WU: Cindy (2 rds)
Snatch work w/ PVC

WOD: Fran
Thrusters (33 lbs)
PUs (BW rings)
21-15-9
9:08

Ab mat x 50
Kipping form work

Thoughts: I felt good today. I felt I had eaten the right food, drank enough water (2L before the workout over the day), and was feeling okay with life. The WU PUs felt easier than they ever have. I talked with Sue quite a bit after and she gave me some pointers to try to get me into the Kipping rhythm. Hopefully if I do that enough, I'll finally crank one out. It was a short workout, so I should be in good form for FGB tomorrow.

I also had my monthly weigh in today. I'm still at exactly the same weight, but have dropped 1% BF. I can definitely see it in how my clothes fit, but haven't dropped any sizes yet. I know I need to get the nutrition under better control, but I'm working on it bit by bit. I want the whole thing to be an evolution, not a revolution, so that it is something that I can live with over the long term.

Re: Emily's workout log

Hate to say, but it's taken about 6-7 months until the running got better. I just did the WOD and some swimming on my own and it improved.
Actually, tho..... I'd say at 4 months or so it really started improving to the point where I didn't think I was going to totally die.
