too dang skinny!
CFWU @ 5 / 45 x 3 (I was increasing my reps after each successful week of training, but I have since come away from that idea because my warm-up was turning into…well, more than a warm-up)
45 x 5, 55 x 5
65 x 3, 70 x 5
80 x 5, 90 x 5+ (7) kicked my @$$!
I pulled Tuesday’s workout from the main page. It looked awesome…on paper. Man, did it knock me on my @$$! I figured I would struggle with it, but I had no idea it would be that awful. 10 rounds quickly changed to a 20 minute AMRAP. My conditioning sure ain’t what it used to be! I felt all kinds of weak afterwards, and just sat around for a good while afterwards. It had been way too long since I had done a metcon.
I have been wanting a drum set for so long. We finally gave in and purchased a set as the boys’ (and my) Easter gift. I am hopeful that at least one (if not all) of them will really get into playing. I wish I could quit school and focus all of the time and attention on playing (learning to play) the drums. It would be much more rewarding and far less stressful; relaxing / stress relieving in fact. I’m loving them…wish we would have bought them a long time ago.
the wife and I went and got new tattoos together this past weekend. I got Popeye on my bicep because well, “I am what I am.” I got him on my bicep because of the animations (like tanks) they would show in his biceps after he ate some spinach. I am very pleased with the artist’s work. It’s healing up nicely and is currently in the itch like hell phase.
I haven’t taken any progress pics in quite a while (since abandoning everyday metcons). sure, all those metcons were helpful in losing weight, but along with the weight I lost size and strength. sure, I had visible abs and my cardio was great, but I was withering away…not cool. so, I’ve changed things up a bit to follow 5/3/1 four days a week with 2 metcons a week (3 days on, 1 day off). I need to put on some size and strength. I’m too dang skinny! my weight is up a few pounds; currently 173 from 167, but my diet hasn’t been the cleanest (it hasn’t been the worst either). I had three beers and at least 4 brownies the other night with my wife for example…gotta live right??? hopefully, it’s not all going straight to my midsection (which I’m sure it is). so, I need to lift more, eat more, and sleep more. which has been difficult this semester between getting sick and late nights spent working on meeting assignment deadlines. I’m taking a Science class right now that’s kicking my @$$!
