11:10 - 7:40 wheeee! I think i still have some catching up to do - but this was a good start on making up for the last week's defecit.

AM Commentary
I stepped on the scale at Ironworks for the first time in a week or two and - usually I do it nekkid, but this time I just took off my shoes - and it told me I am 130# - that's 5 pounds heavier than usual. Philosophically, I am ok with this - and even body comp wise - looking at myself in the mirror - I'm pretty ok with this. I am a little fluffier than I would like, but not embarassing. I'll still take my shirt off in a WOD if I want to :-p But, the real reason I bring this whole sticky issue up is that this MIGHT explain why my pull-ups have back-tracked so far. They were a tenuous thing at best, and adding a few extra pounds would explain why I'm having so much more trouble with these.

Daniel gave me some very good advice though (he's really good at that!) - just keep working them, and after the strength cycle - when I work the weight off - they'll be much much easier! That will be my mantra for not obsessing about a little weight gain. Also - I think some of the weight is just pre-period bloat which will hopefully be gone in a few days.

Warmup: walk around the block carrying "something heavy" - i chose a 14# medicine ball - ME


Complete as many rounds in 20 minutes as you can of:
24 inch Box Jump, 30 reps *subbed step-ups to 20" box
115/80 pound Push Press, 20 reps *45#
30 Pull-ups *jumping pullups

2 rounds + 30 pullups.

Round 1: 6:47
Round 2:
. . 2:06 - Box Step-ups
. . 2:46 - pullups
. . 3:54 - Push Press
Round 3:
. . 2:05 - Box Step-ups
. . 2:31 - Pullups

Cash Out:
2000m Row: 9:20

Ether Max had this on the board wrong, or I just did it backwards - but I think I did pullups then push presses - I am sure I did for the last round.

In rounds 2 & 3 I did all the step ups leading with my right leg.

8:40 - 6oz black coffee
1:10 - cottage cheese, slivered almonds, cinnamon, coffee with milk.
3:50 - roasted chicken, sauteed broccoli
4:40 - 1 piece homemade jerky
7:45 - 16 oz milk, 2 pieces homemade jerkey.
8:45 - double cheeseburger from Giant Burger
9:20 - 1 beer

Isn't it funny how differently a little weight gain affects us than it does men? I've dropped five pounds after gaining seven over the winter, and although my clothes don't fit any differently, I feel better where I am now.
