Sometimes You PR, Sometimes You Don’t

rockypr-300x213

Three days in a row last week was all I could handle! Now, hoping to make four days this week at the Boom Box!

Monday was already going to be a struggle because I decided to drink too many margaritas on Saturday. That turned into a worthless Sunday and I knew it would spill over into a not so fun Monday. I pretty much kicked myself the whole time about those dang margaritas.

SKILL & STRENGTH

3x

Single leg Split Squat x 12 reps

Rest 30 seconds

Handstand Push-Ups x Max Reps
Rest 3 minutes

So Single Leg Split Squats will get you every time. My booty is so sore! I should really make these a daily thing but that’s one more thing I gotta try and fit in. For Handstand Push Ups, I just did Handstand Holds. My wrist was good for the first 2 rounds but started to get irritated on the last round.

CONDITIONING

Annie For (TOTAL TIME)

50-40-30-20-10 reps of:
Double-Unders
Sit Ups

Oh, Annie, one of my favorites. Only because I KNOW I can do this workout. I haven’t always been great but on this day I finally PR’d. Two years ago I had a 7:58 finish. One year ago, I had a 9+ minute finish. But on Monday, I had a 7:34 finish! Wooooo! But again cursing those margaritas as I was sluggish on the Sit Ups.

SKILL & STRENGTH

Find 1 Rep Max: Clean

15 min

And this is where I didn’t get a PR. I know, I know, I took some time off. And boy did I feel it. My last PR was 125lbs. But today I only got to 110lbs before I had to call it quits.

CONDITIONING

TABATA FOR: (TOTAL REPS)
3 ROUNDS, WORK 01:00 min, REST 02:00 min OF:
Ground to Overhead 135/95

After all the Squat Clean work, my wrist was getting weak. I was going to go for 85lbs but decided not to try and hurt myself so I went for 65lbs, hoping I would get more work in by getting a lot of reps in. The first round, I did 12 unbroken and I shouldn’t have dropped the bar but I did and I let it sit there for too long before picking it back up. By the time I did, I could only manage 3 more reps. After resting, I told myself I would get at least 16 reps on the next round but that was just a lie I was telling myself. I did stay consistent though with another 15 reps. By the third round I just didn’t want to lift the bar anymore, but completed 12 reps. Grand total: 42 reps at 65lbs. Not great, but not bad.

Until Next Time

I can tell you my boozing days are limited if not over. I’m still hurting from Saturday. And then add all the soreness from Monday and yesterday. My shins are dying from the Double Unders.

My eating is still subpar, but I’m doing what I can… sometimes! It’s birthday dinner for my Dad tonight, so no planned workout. Maybe I’ll get ambitious and take a jog later this evening. Hehe. I did say maybe!
