Oh my…I have a feeling that I’m going to be unbelievably sore tomorrow.
On Monday I did this ladder WOD. I went light on my clean and jerks at 55# because I wasn’t feeling super great and was in a space where I couldn’t drop weight but I did kip all of the pullups. It took me about 18 minutes working at a steady (but not agressive by any means) pace.
The pullup soreness had already started to settle in today but I really wanted to do the workout.
Between the pullups, pistols and sumo deadlift high pulls I’m pretty sure that I won’t be able to lift my arms over my head or sit down without holding something tomorrow. Today’s WOD was a serious leg burner. I did my pistols (single leg squats) unassisted for the first time ever, used a 20″ box instead of 24″ (box jumps just scare me!) and used the RX weight for sumo deadlift high pulls. I love SDHPs with kettlebells but for some reason using a barbell makes the movement infinitely harder for me. I had to break them into three sets of five and they were definitely the hardest part of the WOD for me.
So I’ll report back on how I feel tomorrow! Pray for me! 😉
Of course I have been eating great things in addition to working out hard. That’s how it goes over here.
Breakfast Monday and Tuesday was a smoothie. On Monday I picked up a delicious new combo from Whole Foods after a hot yoga class. Almond butter, almond milk, dates, spinach, blueberries and banana. It was such a different combination than I’m used to with the almond butter and dates but I loved it! Today’s smoothie at home had banana, spinach, strawberries, blueberries, almond milk, peanut butter and ice.
On Monday I made a white bean and tuna salad for lunch. I mixed together tuna, white beans, chopped marinated artichoke hearts, grape tomatoes, cucumber, basil, olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper. I topped it with avocado and served it over spinach. I ate the same thing today for lunch but added a little goat gouda on top.
Dinner Monday night was red curry with chicken, shrimp and veggies over coconut jasmine rice with a healthy dose of Sriracha. I have been craving Thai food for weeks and this totally hit the spot!
Post workout dinner tonight was marinated chicken breasts from Reid’s with sauteed squash and mushrooms and kale chips. I love Reid’s chicken because they put it through the cuber a little bit before marinating and it makes it so tender and flavorful.
And one last fun thing to share that I saw on Facebook today – 43 Things That Will Make You Feel Old. Last year Full House had a 25th anniversary party. Yes, I feel OLD!
When is the last time a workout made you really sore? What did you do?
