Counting up: Days 5 thru 10 — This past weekend, I tried my hand at even more cooking and baking. I made my first ever Banana Nut Bread! (Applause please) However, these are Paleo, again so the texture was a bit different from what I’m used to. I think I may have undercooked it a little, but overall, better than what I expected considering its the first time I’ve ever made bread.
Voila! The finished product:
I know I’ve been bad at updating my workout logs, but before I do, my most important news: Allan arrives tomorrow to spend Easter weekend here with me 🙂
Okay, now on to the workouts from Monday and today:
Strength: Deadlift 5×5 – 50kgs
WOD: 3 Rounds for time —
200m med ball run
10 power cleans (30kgs)
Cash Out: 10 pull-ups (blue band)
In keeping with my promise to try RX the workouts, I went with 30kgs. What I found really difficult though was the med ball run. Carrying that ball down and back up that alley was awkward…I didn’t quite know how to properly hold it, I ended up tired soon after the workout started. That affected my cleans as well, the weight with the fatigue made it really hard. Finished 3 rounds in 6:38.
Strength – Push Jerk 5×5 (35kgs)
WOD: 10 minutes AMRAP of
3 ring rows
9 wall balls
At the back of my head I had the Open games when we did push presses at 35kgs. I knew I could do the weight but I wasn’t sure if I could do it 5×5. Apparently I could…I was a bit wobbly on the last set, but I managed to pull it off.
The WOD itself seemed easy when you look at it, but I found myself struggling to make my way to the wall ball area for each set. My balance was also off in the wall balls so I couldn’t do a continuous string of 9 reps. Managed 7 rounds + 3 ring rows.
