What's up blogging world! It's been a minute. Over the weekend, my husband and I celebrated
one year of marriage!
Everyone said year numero uno would be the hardest, so thank goodness that piece of crumb cake is over. Really, it wasn't hard - my husband is an amazing man who knows how to treat his lady! There were plenty of challenges, no joke. But, sorry feminist's, this gal was made for marriage. I love taking care of my husband, my home, and having someone to sleep beside and steal blankets from every night. I love our tooth brushes side by side. I love tripping over his combat boots left by the front door. I love washing his stinky PT's and over-looking those leftover stray beard hairs in the bathroom sink. I love to cook (real, healthy) meals for him - I'm just so happy he eats them. I love asking his advice and knowing that he will always be there for me, no matter what, supporting me, encouraging me, loving me through and through.
Cheers to us!
We spent the weekend on the Riverwalk in San Antonio - it was incredible. We drank and ate and drank and ate and slept. I have a boatload of photos and funny stories I want to share, but I'm saving that for my next post.
Right now, let's talk about today's WOD.
TUESDAY'S WOD (click)
Deadlift: 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 and T M-u: Push press (75# / 55#) and Med ball cleans (20# / 14#)
I reached a new deadlift PR today! So badass. I haven't done deadlifts in a few months, and couldn't get past 185. Today I managed 200 lbs! Man, talk about riding a high! I was all butterflies and anxiety and excitement stepping up to that final lift, knowing that at 200 lbs, it was brand new territory, uncovered ground, undiscovered strength, waiting to be tapped. My first attempt at lifting it was nasty, I had to walk away, shake it off, and attempt again.
Attempt two: BOOM! Up, up and lifted! I wish I would have written down my progression. I think we started with about 150# and went up from there. There's something special about hitting the 2-hunnies. Just sayin'.
I finished it up with some Rx'ed tabata push press and tabata medicine ball cleans - those are fun. I ended up push-pressing 60#'s ... found that out afterwards, of course. Also did my favorite tabata treadmill workout. And then, did this ....
25 Walking lunge stepsFor time
50 Box jumps (20”)
25 Ring dips
20 Knees to elbows
30 Kettlebell swings (2 pood / 1.5 pood)
20 Hang squat cleans (35# / 25#) dumbbells
25 Back extensions
30 Wall balls (20# / 14#)
3 Rope climbs (15’)
Then I was done. Promise. Did that in 26 minutes whilst almost dropping a kettle bell on my noggin. I'd never done KB swings before, hush you. And I modified the rope climbs with lying rope climbs. I have so many photos to upload, and even a sweet coconut shrimp recipe I played with last night for dinner. All in good time! Off to catch some shut eye.
