[I]Warm-up: [/I][/B][I]
[U]Stationary Cycling[/U]: 10:00 / L3 / 100 RPM / 2.6 mi / HR to 95
[U]CFWU[/U] X 3. Sub GHD sit-ups for regular sit-ups. Dips 5, 7, 8.

[B]WOD: AMRAP in 20 Minutes:
95# Thrusters X 5
95# Hang Power Cleans X 7
95# Sumo DL High Pulls X 10

[U]Legs were jelly today[/U][/B]. At 95#, got one round of thrusters, I HPC and failed on 2nd. Dropped to 65# (Pack scaling).

[B]65# Thrusters X 5
65# HPCs X 7
65# SDHP X 10
[/B][/I][I][B]Achieved 6 Rounds plus 3 thrusters[/B][/I]

I think my poor eating the last three/four weeks is catching up with me. Felt good today, but not strong. No power in last round of thrusters - - just "got it up there."

[I][B]Strength Work (a little.....after I recuperated).
GTG pullups[/B] (carried through from CFWU to end of WO period). Lost count but did 20 or 22 (did these in 1, 1, 1, 1, etc. increments today). One was accidentally an "L" hang chin up. Tried and got two more (one at a time, with a good rest in between). Got my chin over the bar!! Yahoo!
[B]Dips[/B]: 10 X 2. Haven't gotten 10 dips in a row in about 20 years!
[B]Kipping pull-up practice. [/B]Approx. 20 reps broken into twos and threes. I'm getting close. I think I'd have had one if my arms weren't so blasted shot. Couldn't pull my caboose high enough! At least, this time the attempts looked reasonable in the mirror - - not so much like a gymnastics comedy routine!!:rofl:

Awesome work, buddy. Those pullups are really coming along!

[I]REST DAY.

Physical Therapy.
[/I][/B][I]Had a bit of a setback today. Knee was pretty painful after one of the rehab exercises (which normally has not been a problem). Pain got worse when I did the step-ups on the R/leg.

Rx ..........lots of ice today plus possible temporary "banishment" from lower extremity WODs for a few days. :ranting2:

Sucks to hear about the knee. Hope you feel better soon. What's been off with your diet?

Thanks, Carla. Much appreciated!! :thanx:

Hey Chuck,

Thank you. Ya, I hope the knee straightens itself out quickly.

I've had trouble with nausea just looking at certain foods I've normally loved for about the past three - four weeks, to the point of not wanting to eat - - sometimes at all. Had to force myself to down at least some protein......

Dr. thinks perhaps my gall bladder might be rebelling from the "sudden" proper diet of the last 6+ weeks and doing such heavy exercise. But aside from the nausea/eating problems, I feel really good. Go figure?

[I][B]Update on "eating issues"

[/B]Went to the Dr. today and was advised that the nausea or lack of wanting/being able to eat could be from the sudden change (even for the better) in diet and exercise. Sometimes it can take a few weeks before issues manifest themselves. The Dr. has ordered some tests, including an ultrasound of my gall bladder..................hopefully some answers are close at hand.

Yeah, I can relate to the food thing. I tend to go uber low carb in really erratic cycles. I'll hit a measured Zone for a while and then just cut carbs to under 30g a day for a bit. No real reason for doing it though. I like to keep some whole milk and whey protein around in case I can't get whole food down.

Sorry to hear you've had to endure that too. Sometimes I can't even stomach most carbs (e.g, bread, cereal, even chocolate chip cookies for heaven's sake!) without feeling yucky just looking at them. Did ok the other day with a dry piece of whole wheat toast, but that's the exception. I do better with the complex carbs - veggies and fruits, etc. but have to watch how much I eat of those.

Don't mean to be sarcastic but I wish [U][B]I'd[/B][/U] get sick just looking at some of the carbs that I can't resist. Like cookies, cereal, bread...
SERIOUSLY...Glad you're taking care of your health...knee and all...it's numero uno!
Feel better...
