Back squats 2-2 @ 100% (140#)
3 rounds for time of:
15 push press 75/55#
20 box jumps
My time: 10:12. The back squats were not bad at all. Really! As for the WOD, I was able to get all 10 pull-ups in a row and all 15 push press in a row on my first round - the second and third rounds didn't go as well. I will say it again, I really really need to work on box jumps. My technique is just terrible. I land hard on the ground and just stop, then need to start all over. I have to figure out how to make myself just touch down on the ground and pop right back up. I don't know why this is so hard for me. I don't know what's wrong with me. I think I need to practice it outside a WOD. Regularly, until I get it.
There are a lot of "needs improvement" items that have been going through my head lately. So here's a list of things that I'm working on for Sectionals and for my own personal goals (in order of priority):
- Chest-to-bar pull-ups
- Improve speed on box jumps
- Improve max on snatch and clean and jerk
- Get more consistent at double unders
- Ring dips and false grip pull-ups to get to muscle-up
- Handstand pushups (more ROM) and freestanding handstand (to conquer fear)
I photographed my groceries the other day. Mike saw me doing it and said, you know, normal people don't do that. Yes, I know. But when we started the first Paleo challenge in May, Tim posted a photo of his grocery cart filled with paleo foods and for some reason it totally motivated me. So here's hoping this motivates someone else.
And because I really can't stop taking pictures of my food, here's the salmon in a coconut milk sauce that I had for dinner last night. The sauce was just heated coconut milk with a little salt, garam masala, and dried basil stirred in. Fresh basil would have been better. For those of you paying attention to Zone portions, I had a handful of raisins with this because the carbs were really low.
