It's Monday :(

So I feel more rested then last week but not 100% yet. I just need a good day where I can not worry about the alarm and just sleep in!! Sunday ran 5 miles with my girlfriend down in Naples. It was beautiful as we went along the water first thing in the morning. Not a hard pace and she even had a water break mapped out for us:) This morning lifted squats and press. I did 3x's today which was nice and different. Headed to the training box tonight for a strongman wod consisting on Tire flips, keg carry and I haven't decided on either a run or burpees. We'll see...

Went to strongman today. Started off with the frame carry
empty frame
330 x 2
It was killing my hands. However I feel more confident that I can move the 350 now. Only 20 lbs away and 4 weeks to go:) Next was the log...AHHH the log.
Log at 80lbs
100lbs x 3
120 x 2
I need to practice not letting it dip down. I am not sure if my hands are in the right position either when I try to go over head. I hate missing and all of my other girl competitors got it :( I might just have to be ok with not winning this one! Made to the pool for a swim with diane, rich, lindsay, and brian. 400m TT. Took me 10 mins. Not too bad. Food has been pretty clean. Had some baked chicken wings a few times this week! I still don't feel rested. Hopefully tomorrow I will have a chance.

Finally Friday:) It's been a long week and I'm pretty drained. I haven't slept in the last week and it caught up to me. Last night I slept for almost 11 hours. Needed it:) Had a great time with my friend and Shannon hooked us up with paddle boarding which was SOOO much fun. I"m going to have to do that more often. Slept in today and had to go to the gym this evening. Great energy tonight and got my butt kicked my our newest piece of equipment. Tomorrow it's strongman practice and some swimming! Down like 4 lbs this week. I know it's a lot but I've been trying to eat as much as I can. All of this lifting is kicking my butt!!

I didn't make it to yoga last night and this morning I didn't run my CFE. I'm Tired.
I have a lot planned for the next 4 weeks but I don't want to burn myself out. I'm going to listen to my body and do what I can do! This morning I just stretched and it felt good. I'm headed to the training box tonight for a WOD. I'm really excited about tomorrow I have a my college girlfriend in town and we are going paddle boarding with Shannon!!! How fun and then to the it:)

I'm Pooped! Re-cap-Sunday-Swim 9min TT, Run 8-200m every 2 minutes. Monday-Lifted Squats/Presses assistance work-chins, sit ups, handstand holds. At night went to Training box to use the tire. 3 rds- Tire flip-15 KBS, Tire Flip-10 Burpees, Run--it was about 300m. Took me 12min and I was dying. The tire whipped my ass!!
This morning-Checked the WOD- FGB..REALLY!! I usually love FGB but I know I am tired and haven't recovered. Still got 2 away from my PR of 324..I'll take the 322 this morning for sure! I know if I knew I was that close I could've squeezed out a few more reps..but I did good:) Tonight I am hoping to make it to yoga to see Kate and Jane:)
Protein Shake
a little fruit with cinnamon

Last night I went back to the gym for some practice with Rack Jerks. One of the girls at the competition can press 150 and just missed 160 with the LOG. OMG. I need help! I have only been able to get 140lbs overhead...I really think it technique and MENTAL. Once I feel that weight on my shoulders, I'm like holy crap that's heavy and then it's all down hill from there. I have a BAD habit on rounding my shoulders in and down and the bar dropping on my chest during my dip. I tried hard to keep an upright position. I was able to hit 150..not soo pretty but I got it. I screamed in my 145 and 150 pr's b/c I seriously think I was in shock. I've never screamed before!!! So now I know I have much more potential then I thought. I know I am strong enough to get more I just need to have confidence and practice. I had a major oopps at the end...I recovered with my back foot which made me almost drop it. Must remember to step back first. I'm super excited about my new 10 lb PR. Now I just have to get my hands on the log and practice with that!!
I'm trying really hard to only put good foods in belly the last few days. I can already feel the difference and I'm excited for the next 4 weeks:)

It's on.....Again

I have found a few things to train for and I don't want to be comfortable anymore. I would like to push myself for the next maybe 2 or 3 months and see real results again. I am thinking about competing in the next strongman at the end of March. It's not very much time to begin lifting hard again, but I hope that I have enough of a base that I I'll be ok. Some of the girls out there are looking pretty big so I am kind of behind the 8 ball. Who knows what can happen:)
eggs, a little salmon, veggies, nuts
Ground chicken, 2 chicken hot dogs, squash, nuts
1/2 a wrap and some peanuts
Didn't have much time to eat dinner tonight. We sold some old appliances and didn't get done until 9pm from moving them out of our condo. This process should have taken like 20 minutes and ended up being 3 hours!!
