We drew the winners on Monday for the Weekly Challenge (those who completed it!) and I was so excited that Michelle D and Laura S. won! Michelle won $50 hard cash money, and my girl Laura won a bag of Paleo People granola and a CFM tank!
|(Just check that your flavor doesn't have honey in it, NOT WLC approved!)|
Your goodies are in the mail and should arrive on Saturday, ladies. Laura, I can't want to see that photo of you in your new CFM shwag!
This Weeks Challenge is practicing mindfulness. Just 10 minutes a day, and maybe next week YOU can win cash and sweet gear!
The WOD's the last few day's have been awesome and sweaty! I made it to the 7am class for this pretty:
We ended up cleaning these from the ground, I think because we didn't have enough racks for everyone. I worked up to 120 on the last set of five. My PR for the clean and jerk is 150.
Due to time constraints, we changed the 3:30 rest for part B to a 2:00 rest. I wanted to keep all of my rounds in the 50-60 second range, and I did.
I hung out on the 'Dyne afterwards for an easy 5 mile ride to keep things loooooooose and work any junk (lactic acid) out of my muscles. It's supposed to help prevent soreness and DOMS. I don't know if it helps, but Matt Chan talked about how he does it every day post-WOD, so it can't hurt. I take most of my advice from people who are more often photographed with their shirts off than their shirts on. Can't hurt, can't hurt.
This morning after some office work and my Starbucks Americano, I wanted to knock out this burpee wall ball WOD some of my Fort Hood homies were going on and on about ...
5 rounds for time:
15 burpee wall balls (14#)
50 double unders
500m row/400m run
Due to construction outside our building, I decided hit the C2. Everyone knows I would rather run any day of the week ... just in case wall ball burpees don't suck enough, that row sure does.
Let me tell you about wall ball burpees!
But you know me, I love something new and I love a challenge. :)
What doesn't kill us makes us stronger.
Today was our first day of Yoga at the box, too! So after the noon class of AMRAP ring dips and having my butt handed to me doing too many turkish get ups, a few of us stayed for an hour of bendy-pretzel-time. My poor upper body was smoked, I was shaking like a leaf holding downward dog.
I toughed out the 55 minutes of work for the precious 5 minutes of savasana.
Can we just have an hour of savasana?
And a trip to my favorite place on my way home. :)
What is your favorite yoga pose?
