I've Never Felt So Much at Home

WOD for 4-16-2009

1. Work up to a heavy set of 3 on Snatch-Grip Deadlift

10 rounds, for time of:

5 snatch-grip deadlifts
4 alternating lunge jumps
3 handstand push-ups

First, it feels SO great to be back into the grind! I was in Boston for the past 4 days. I had a great time, but I missed CFDC SOOO much! I did not follow my diet. I had every intention of sticking with my diet. But somewhere along the stopped. And WOW! Did I feel the consequences. I still felt fantastic on the outside, but my insides were so mad at me! Going from months of eating well, to a few days were I ate pretty much whatever I wanted....led to abdominal cramping. I also didn't drink near enough water to stay as hydrated as I normally do. So, yesterday, I get off the plane, go home, change and head up to the place where I love--my second home--CFDC!!

This was a fun workout to come back to! If you don't know...I LOVE deadlift! But this was snatch grip, so it was a new grip for me. Still had fun! It was great getting to workout with Mel #2 and Sandy! I managed to get up to 143# for my 3 rep max. I was surprised that I was able to do this much! So...Woo hoo!

For the second part of the workout, I used 98# for deadlift. I had planned to use 20# dumbbells for the sub for HSPU. I grabbed two dumbbells from the 20# pile, and after the workout, Sandy pointed out that I had a 15# and a 20#. :( I kept wondering why my left arm seemed to be moving the weight easier...come to find was because it was a lighter weight. Grrr....

Time for WOD: 7:44

Normally I do my diet for yesterday at this point. Well, take my was no where near as good as it should have been. I ate bread, and it was good! When my mom picked me up, I told her how excited I was to get BACK on the Zone. Most people look forward to getting off for a few days, but me...I was excited to start back. Weird...I know. But I have seen the results that come from it, and I know how icky I felt not being on it. So, here's to getting back on the Zone!
