02-17-09 Tuesday Week 3

Tommy and I overhead squatting...

I think I'm feeling a little better. This program is really working for me. The hardest part is making time to do both wods with several hours in between. Counting today, two PRs this week. I'm digging it. Diet is pretty much on track - maybe slightly heavy on the fruit right now but I'm not going to really worry about that unless it seems to affect my performance at some point. Tomorrow, I'm going to see a guy about my shoulder. It's not stopping my wods, but I'm being extra careful with it.

Training Log:
Deadlift 3 x 3 ... then 21-15-9 (same weight throuhout, 1 min rest between sets)

3 x 245
3 x 255 (PR)
end set w/PR

Used 185# for 21-15-9 . That was approximately 5:00 of hell.
I came close to losing consciousness once and also, my thumbs.

4:00 PM
5 Rounds for time:
5 Overhead Squats (105# me, 155# Tommy)
15 Burpees

Shana -- 9:59 whew!
Tommy -- 21:33

I liked today's wod. Tomorrow is glorious rest day.

Shana and Tommy; I'm so impressed with both of you and your comittment to this tough regimen. You both inspire me.

Shana - why do you take several hours of rest between WODs? I didn't see that prescribed anywhere in the CFSB program, so I am wondering why you added it in. 3.5 hours doesn't seem like much rest time. Wouldn't it just be easier to do the whole workout at once? Just do one warm-up?

Great job in Tuesday's WODs!! You are amazing!

Jenna, I think to really be able to give 100% effort to each wod - it's beneficial to rest. If I really put 100% into trying to PR a deadlift, a little recovery time is helpful before going all out in a fast/heavy metcon. 3 hours seems to do the trick... I think! =o)
