Soon? That’s right, soon. Me at the top of the Rope. I will
come back to this, first let’s talk food and my challenge. So this is Day 3 and everything is still on
track. That might not seem like much,
but I got up one morning to make a stir-fry at 6:40am for that days lunch and I
spent all night Tuesday making food for the next few days. Dedication? Sort of,
it really is a desire to be successful with this lifestyle change and to see if
paleo is the missing component to get me under that 300 barrier.
20 Calorie Row
30 Double Unders (I did a combo of attempts and skips)
40 Mountain Climbers
Michaels as she will be known for the next 30 days) was paying close attention
to form. Tavia and I even did some work on my Pull-up (which I’m starting to
get close to doing without the band. Well 1 anyway) in preparation for the day
when I can do them. After that it was
off to work on the First Pull + Hand Snatch… er, wait that’s First Pull + HANG
Snatch. 7 sets of 2 reps working at 95lbs for me and while I was still having
trouble with the squat on the end, it was getting better.
2 minutes All Out
20 Calorie Row
12 Box Jumps (Originally they were lateral, but with the
knee everything in a straight line for me onto 3x45lb plates)
HSPU (From the box)
1 minute Rest
Reps only count for HSPU!
the #530Crew (@SarahBassels, Iron Anne, @girmantitov, Mans and @DefconRX)
worked really hard. There wasn’t a lot
of time for the last to movements after the Row (except for the first row for
me which I knocked out in 36 seconds!!).
When it was all done and I had scraped myself off the floor, I had
rounds as follows: 17, 0, 7, 0, 3. Total score of 27. I wasn’t confident I was
going to get to a single HSPU.
2x ME UB Pull-ups
2x ME UB Ring Dips
some shoulder stretching. After that it
was off to the Rope for my homework. This
is where ‘Soon’ comes into play, because after Monday’s work I was feeling a
lot better. I had good hangs and repeatedly brought the knees up and got a foot
lock on the Rope. I’m getting closer and
closer to the birthday goal of climbing the Rope.
