I got sick. It was gross. I will discuss it in my next post.
Basically, took a week off because of it, and finally had the strength to get back into the gym. I felt SO good when I went back in, too! Amazing.
Strength: Hatch Cycle W1:D2
HBBS: 1×10 @ 60%, 1×8 @65%, 1×8 @70%, 1×8@ 70%
Front Squat: 1×5 @ 60%, 1×5 @65%, 1×5 @70%, 1×5@ 75%
WOD: 8 Minute AMRAP
Wall Balls (20/16#)
So.. I hate the Hatch Cycle. I hated it last year and I still hate it.
I did my 10 reps at 135, increased a bit and did 8, then increased a bit and did 5, and then I was done.
I did 5 front squats at 135, and said, I’m not doing this anymore. I hate this strength program. And I stopped. That was that.
Our WOD was 8 minutes of as many wall balls as possible.
I was seriously hoping for 80. Then, I had a lofty goal mid WOD and said, no.. let’s go for 100. Let’s do 20 the first minute and 10 each min after that, and hopefully pick up the rest along the way.
I did 40 in the first 2 minutes! By the time I got to 100, I still had about 2 minutes left. I kept going.
I ended up getting 123 wall balls in 8 minutes. I was pretty happy with that! Love attaining and beating goals. Now I need to do Karen again, and beat my last time of 9:20, and my previous time of 9:13! Eek.
My legs are going to hurt.
