Back from vacation only means one thing….get your a** back in the gym!!! This vacation to HHI with my family and my sister’s family was amazing!!
As with every trip, I had my running gear and I was ready to at least get 2 runs while there. Apparently, my mind and body had other plans! I didn’t do diddly SQUAT! I was tired, which led to sleeping in and didn’t think twice about running! I even packed J’s stuff because he runs with me…NOPE!
Check this nugget out… I had a triathlon on the Saturday after we returned home!! I completely forgot about it and was unprepared to race. I emailed the race director and they allowed me to do the race virtually. So, no loss there; all I have to do is submit my times to them online and I get my goodies AND my bling. However, I am now 0 for 2 with workout plans!!
Monday was my first day back at the gym. I am struggling with the time to get there because I have J that has football practice and Aidan has basketball practice on the other end of town!! If I could juuuuust clone myself…..
3 x 10 back squats
The goal was to be at about 60% of my 1RM. My 1RM max is 100#, making my 60% 60# (right?). I was able to get 65# and was happy!!
5 rounds for time:
5 squat clean thrusters (55#)
10 pull ups
I was glad to see this time! Anytime there is a time cap (in this WOD 15min), I become nervous! I always feel like I’m not going to make it before time is called. But I did!! Truth be told, I could have went heavier on the squat cleans. Rx was 65# and I could have managed a total of 25. But I was safe…..
I am all kinds of sore right now….like right now as I right this post!! But I LOVE the soreness because I know the work that I put behind it!!
Today is a rest day which is nice. J has football practice, so to kill the time, I guess I will take the 6:30 class. Gotta use the best of my time, right?? 😉
Ever have plans to work out and it just didn’t pan out like you imagined???? That’s the title to the book of my life…….”I(t) just didn’t WORK out!” 😂
