Rehab Day 11

Weight: 124.2 (finally going in the right direction again)

Breakfast - 2 eggs, almonds, walnuts
Post Workout - Smoothie: 2 TB dried egg whites, spinach, strawberries, blueberries
Lunch-ish- Left over lemon chicken, about 4 oz. Almonds, walnuts. Peppered Beef Jerky
Later Afternoon - Larabar, pepperoni stick, cucumbers, pistachios
Dinner - 4oz roasted chicken, 1/2 avocado, whole red pepper, cucumbers

Beef Jerky Underwear? Edible undies indeed!

In a pinch for something to tide me over during an afternoon hair appointment/training session out in Martensville, I grabbed a bag of beef jerky from Pharmasave. The Peppered Beef flavor was the best option with only 1g sugar per piece. Holy hell that stuff is salty though. It almost burned my lips! You know I'm a fan of sodium for athletes but this was excessive. My homemade jerky is way better... more on that the next time I make some :-)

Today's WOD:
50 Wall Balls
50 Pullups
35 Wall Balls
35 Pullups
20 Wall Balls
20 Pullups

Time- 36:04

That's reeeeeeeeally slow. I know. David was done the first round before I was done round 1. Shameful. But here's the thing - I HATE wallballs. I hate them. IhatethemIhatethemIhatethem. And continuing in the spirit of trying to get better at things I hate/suck at, I used full girl weight (14lb ball) and was brutal on myself about not counting reps that did not contact the 10' wall target. I'm guessing I did close to 150 WBs to get the 105 that counted. Normally I would scale the weight in order to get through the WOD faster. I'm finding now that unless I physically cannot move the weight, I have more to gain from taking some hits on my times but attacking things unscaled than I do from continuing to languish at the same weights/reps/versions of things.

The pullups are coming along just fine. They're slow - only 5 or 6 at a time, but I can do them. For the second time in less than a week though, I ripped my hand - on rep 96!
