WOD for 5-26-2009
21 KB swings
12 pull ups
One of my favorite workouts. When I first saw this, I was excited, until I realized that it was going to 101 outside...ugg.... And by the time that the workout started, I was anxious. But I like the anxiety feeling. It makes me want to do better and work harder. I used the 35# KB for the first two rounds and had to switch for the 3rd round. Green band for pull ups. Time overall was not the best. But, for the first time, I felt pretty good doing the runs. During the KB swings on the second round, I was having a hard time catching my breath. I guess that is what an asthmatic feels like. I have been battling some morning cough and congestion, so that may have played into it. Or the fact that I hadn't really eaten since 8 that morning. That could have played into it.
Again, not too happy with the time, but I increased in KB weight for 1/2 the workout, so I am happy about that. Pull ups overall were easier. The third round still kills me because my arms get tired. But that's the point of the workout.
Diet for yesterday:
Breakfast: 1/4c eggs (not much left in the lounge), 2 pieces of bacon, 1/2c yogurt
Lunch: 1c strawberries (unintentional fast, due to work being busy at lunch and not getting a break, and I forgot my back up protein. Not liking the fast thing, makes me grumpy!)
Dinner: 1 sweet potato, 4 chicken strips cooked in olive oil, 1c milk with 1 tablespoon protein powder, 1c strawberries, 1 peach
Total Water Intake: 1.5L
