02-25-09 Wednesday Week 4

I don't have a pic today- been working out in an empty gym. It was supposed to be rest day but I did the deadlift/burpee wod that I skipped yesterday so wanted to post the results.

5 Rounds for time:
5 Deadlifts 185 lbs
10 Burpees

Time -- 4:41 (no PR, 4:35 on 12/18/08 )

I'm not too upset about not hitting a PR considering how pitiful my diet has been the last two days. I've been so bummed - I've just been eating everything in my house. I don't have any junkfood but too much of a good thing is a bad thing. I'm talking like almost a pound of strawberries in one sitting... you get the picture. Tomorrow is a new day.

The extra good news is that I did 15 pullups today and my shoulder didn't pop or grind or snap. And, while it's not 100%, it is mostly pain-free. I'm pretty encouraged. Another check-in with the Doc tomorrow, so we'll see what he says!

Nice job, Shana. And good news about the shoulder.

Consider this: For most (and I'm sure there was a time in your life when this was true)if eating a pound of strawberries was the worst they had done in the last couple of weeks, they would dance with glee.

Sheryl, that IS true - and I'm not beating myself up about it. I'm just trying to be aware that that behavior in itself, eating not because I'm hungry, but because I'm upset, is unhealthy. Strawberries are delicious (and usually good for you!)

Shana-I've decided you're the prettiest CrossFitter out there, and somehow you make the workouts look easy! You're in a valley, and that's ok, build slowly and you'll get back up there. Consider what you have done this past year and how far you have come and know that each day you are an inspiration to us lowly peons ;)

Thanks, Maya!

I have had the same shoulder issues, I finally went to see an osteopath and after only 2 treatments is has helped a ton! I have also heard that ARTS docs can help as well. It has not only helped my shoulder, but better aligned my body in general. Good luck and keep at it.

Thanks, Donna. Actually, the doctor I go to has been mainly doing A.R.T. on me. He's also done some Graston, kinesiotape and some other kinds of shock torture(electric & shock wave) as well.
