At the BOOM Box and last night with the BOOMSTICKS!
So let me just say GO RANGERS! Thank goodness Yu got his pitching under control cause I knew there would be a lot of haters otherwise (I’m sure y’all are out there anyways). And SUPER THANK GOODNESS for all the HITTING! The BOOMSTICKS were out in full force!
This morning I wasn’t sure I’d be in full force for my workout just because it was a bunch of my weaknesses all bunched together! PISTOLS for Skill/Strength! AKA one legged squats 😦 I am no good at these. I have a tight IT band on the left leg and a cranky pants hip on my right side. I struggled very much on these today. It’s disappointing at best and I can only hope that extra mobility work and at home practice will save me with this RIDICULOUS movement.
MY next weakness is running! and deadlifts. I’m not GREAT at DLs but I’m not horrible either. The whole hip thing makes me have a butt thing which sometimes leads to a hamstring thing. The MetCon was 800m run, 25 deadlifts (@135lbs), 800m run. For Time OF COURSE. My initial 800 was right around the 4:10 mark. Not bad–not bad considering I HATE the running. I decided I wasn’t going to try and be a hero and I would break up my DLs into 5’s. I think this helped me out a lot. 135lbs proved to be hard but not impossible. I can’t clearly recall at what time I finished those but it was sometime between 6:30 and 7:00. I took off for my run and the HILL we have to run up got me good. So I ended up being much slower than my first 800. Don’t forget I just went pretty HEAVY (for me at least) on the DLs. My max is 185lbs. I felt good with this MetCon. I don’t think I could have pushed my runs any more without hurting my DL time. I feared fatigue coming on too fast if I went for too many DLs in a row which would have probably made me slow down too much. Time 11:21.
Happy Tuesday! Make IT BOOM-erific!
