Hello Jello Legs

6 Mar

As I stand here after today’s workout, my thighs are screaming and want to be ripped out of my jeans. LOL. Yes, it was that good.

Before I go into what we did at CFPA today, let’s get into what I’ve been eating. Yesterday were rest day macros, and I started to feel hungry around 3-5pm. I didn’t eat anything because I didn’t really plan to have a snack. I just sucked it up and at this plate for dinner around 6.

After the workout this morning, I wasn’t feeling particularly hungry until 11. I made a big crab salad(12oz) with some spinach and bell peppers. I bought a small salad to go with my crab meat, and had a side of roasted potatoes.

It was a lot of food, and I haven’t finished it yet. Saving the rest of the crab salad for later.

In other news, it’s slowly ticking down to 5pm on the west coast, waiting for the CrossFit Open WOD to be announced. Of course, CrossFit headquarters has been using social media to get everyone excited. They even had a picture of a rower, barbell, and box to hint at the WOD. Sounds like Christine to me, but I doubt it. How are you going to weight everyone, get their BW, and make sure their deadlifts are their BW. OR, maybe they skip the BW part, and just go with set numbers. Who knows…we’ll see!

Onto today’s workout…

Strength:

Front Squats(E3M) 83#(5)-103#(5)-113#(5)-123#(5)-133#(5)

WOD:

1) 400 M Run – 1:35

2) 5 RFT: 10/10 DB Hang Snatch(45#/30#), 20 Air Squats – 8:58 RX’d

3) 400 M Run – 2:19

Extras:

Deadlifts(5×8): 115#-165#-185#-185#-165#

3×10 Superset of Barbell Bent Row(65#) & Push Ups

Ya, that workout was brutal. The snatches were a bit awkward for me because I didn’t want to damage my neck any further. I could tell my shoulders weren’t opening up as much as they should of when I snatched the db back. The last run was just brutal.

Once I got to work to do deadlifts, I was exhausted. The deadlifts did not help my neck at all. I lowered the weight on the last set to be on the safe side, and it helped. I’m glad I got through the session.

My neck is doing better, just still very tight in the morning. I gotta remember to stretch and massage it as much as I can. I need to be in tip top shape for Saturday. :-)

    *mmm* crab salad sounds so good! and your workouts sound intense! how often do you do crossfit? is it 5 x a week? As for your neck, you may or may not have seen my post on instragram a while back, but i just went for acupuncture to get the blood flow going and to get “unknotted” and it really helped!
