My motivator.
I think that starting a log will help me keep my motivation. So after more than a year of no workouts due to medical and lack of intense workouts due to laziness, I started again this past Thursday.

[B]Thursday 120126:
8 rounds of:
Run 400 meters
Rest 90 seconds[/B]


[B]Friday 120127
For time:
75 pound Back squat, 50 reps
15 foot Rope climb, 5 ascents
75 pound Back squat, 40 reps
15 foot Rope climb, 4 ascents
75 pound Back squat, 30 reps
15 foot Rope climb, 3 ascents
75 pound Back squat, 20 reps
15 foot Rope climb, 2 ascents
75 pound Back squat, 10 reps
15 foot Rope climb, 1 ascent[/B]

No rope ascents, 45lbs instead of 75lbs.

45 minutes.

Sad sad sad. Time to improve.

Second WOD time should actually be [B]19:47[/B]. I can't math.

[B]Tabata Something Else:[/B]
(lowest rounds posted)

Pull Ups: 2
Push Ups: 7
Sits Ups: 8
Squats: --

Felt really weak today for some reason, even just starting out on the pull ups I could only get 10. Horrible at kipping so I don't even try, just a small leg kick.

Back was too sore for the squats and I didn't realize it until the first set. I went to squat and just about fell/froze in place. Still sore from Friday's back squat session I suppose.

5 minutes of jump rope afterwards... Double Under are driving me mad lately. I think it's just a matter of not being in the shape I was in before; I could push out 30 before my technique failed (hands would spread generally) and I'd trip myself up.

It's alright, I'll get there.

Need to set some time aside this week and practice Pose Running, hoping a WOD has a little bit of running incorporated into it (not too much running though!)

[B]Wednesday 120201

For time:
30 Handstand push-ups
40 Pull-ups
50 Kettlebell swings, 1.5 poods
60 Sit-ups
70 Burpees[/B]

25 minutes (forgot my phone/stopwatch, so was using the box's clock.)

Modified HSPU's (knees on box).
Last 20 pull-ups were jumping pull-ups.

Arms still feeling incredibly weak, they'll get there again.
Lower back still feeling a bit sore.

Burpees suck.
