Hang Cleans and a Run — A Great Start to Monday


It was tough getting back into the swing of things including getting up this morning. I really do believe not eating paleo has affected my sleeping. I have been waking up around 3a and tossing and turning for a bit before I fall back asleep. I hate that feeling of wanting to sleep but not being able to.

To be honest though – I was excited to get back to my normal routine. As brutal as some of the workouts are, it’s a great feeling to really run your body hard and leave the box all sweaty and wasted.

I’m sure that after being out for a week, my work day will be ultra busy playing catch up. Also Hannah starts a new camp this week and of course it adds a big complication to our lives — most of these camps end at 330! I mean come on — So I have to leave work around 245 to get her in time. It’s such a disruption in the day and unkind to parents —

CrossFit WODs are never what they seem —

What a storm we had last night — pouring rain hitting the side of the house. I like the sound of falling rain and all but this was a loud storm. You just have to appreciate mother nature!

Today’s workout once again seems pretty minor but oh no — it was tough and right after doing Murph.

Row 500m
10 push ups
10 Pass Thurs
10 Squats
10 Handstands

Hang Power Clean

15 Hang Power Clean – started with 75lb but couldn’t get the form right, so dropped to 65lbs

You need to listen to your body — I need a rest day and it probably should have been today.  So – I will listen now and take tomorrow off. It wasn’t my best  performance. Hang Clean Squats and Hang Power Cleans seem to give me a tough time. My timing is off — I bend my arms way too early and it causes me to have to muscle up the weight as opposed to let my hips create the momentum. I know what I need to do, it is feeling that right moment to pull. More practice…
