Goal is to get as close to 100m as possible, each round subtract 100 from your total to get your round score and sum the scores. (so 102-100 = 2, 97- 100 = 3, and add all scores with goal of zero)
15 air squat
15 shoulder row

Yeah, you saw right. It’s been over 5 weeks since my last workout. I would love to say I have a great excuse for this lapse, but in the end they’re just excuses. I think a big part of it was that my old job left me feeling drained every single day. Luckily I started a brand new, awesome job today and I’m feeling inspired to get back at it! Plus my new job will be sending me to Norfolk VA in a few months and I plan to join a gym there. I also plan to arrive with a decent level of athleticism and fitness so I can take advantage of the skill work coaching.
max rep strict push ups
Ab mat sit ups
I was too weak and near pukey to do an ab challenge, plus I did sit ups in my WOD
First of all, I did 24″ for my box jump warm-up. It was scary but I DID IT. Until now I’ve been doing 20″. I think I’m going to sand off the corners of my box before I throw 24″ box jumps into my WOD though. That would be agony.
I was too ambitious with my thrusters and ended up having to go down in weight after round one. Live and learn and lose my pride. The SDHP was tough too, I probably should have done a bit less weight. I wasn’t able to focus on form like I’d prefer. And dammmmn those candlesticks were HARD. Clearly I didn’t know what I was missing out on!
I was going to run with Fiona but I was dragging; I hadn’t eaten any carbs yet today and had to really push to finish this WOD. Lesson learned: eat some carbs! Also experienced the “shaky leg”, which is a symptom of not eating a banana that day and not having my electrolytes yet. Overall it was rough.
