Got my two workouts, plus a bonus Clean and Jerk strength set in before lunch today. It may have been record timing, getting everything out of the way before noon, but man, my stomach was an absolute monster because of it. I tried to finish a pack of turkey and banana pre-workout 1, and had strawberries post-workout 1 in class with a KIND Bar (the crackling of the wrapper was not met with friendly faces), but it growled basically nonstop for four hours. Until lunch, of course, where I hit up the sweet potatoes, bacon, and a plate of veggies. (And smuggled the latter out so I’ll have something to munch on for breakfast on Friday.)
I also checked my weight and I’ve apparently lost 3 pounds, without even subtracting the normal 1 lb for clothes. So this isn’t good. Need to start gaining again, need to start eating more than the obscene amount I already do, start embracing the swole, etc. But in terms of quality and variety, I’m giving myself a pat on the back this week- meals have been very paleo, very A+ and have been definitely fueling my 2-WODs-a-day game well-
- Back Squats (115 lb)
Followed by 5x3 Power Clean and Jerks at 95, 115, 120, 125 lb. In terms of the lift, I’m definitely having an easier time getting completely under the bar on the clean and the jerk, which feels awesome, considering I was having issues with 105 for a workable weight and 115 for a 1RM not too long ago. 135 is definitely in sight! And as far as the wee metcons go, yay. My 21-15-9s are at challenging weights, yet I’m knocking down the times to sub 7-minutes, and doing everything in reps of 7, which feels great!
Resting up my poor, mangy, abused hands tomorrow, for a couple WODs with Anya (and hopefully back squats) on Friday!
