The first steak I’ve eaten in more than 10 years. Fact: fat and gristle still gross me out. Rareness of meat does not. Also featuring green beans with mustard and raisins.
Ben was ~very displeased~ that I was picking out the fatty parts of a $14/pound grass fed rib eye. Picked out only the meat parts of his steak and called me Princess Brittany.
Other than that, too tired to log food. Let’s put it this way: I had good food, but I remained somewhat hungry all day.
Warm up: 400m run, dynamic stretches. Still working on lengthening my stride and the daily warm up is a cute little spot to practice it.
Weightlifting: Back squats. Add 10# to previously established 1RM. Multiply by 0.9. Work 1x8 at 65%, 75% and 80% of this number. If I heard properly, Matt also said: if you fail today, go back to old cycle (0.9 times established 1RM).
I’m still struggling with my squats, so I opted not to add 10#. So working with 55, 65 and 70 (rough numbers around the accruals for 90% of 100# max). And I failed on rep 7 of 65… In June, I repped out 16 at 65 😪.
I know it’s mental. I’m so paranoid about not doing my squats the right way that I’m overthinking it. I’m just not sure what it takes to get out of the funk (other than succeeding).
- 3 Power Snatch (135/95)
- 15 wallball shots (20/14)
I used 35# on my snatch because I’m adamant that I nail my form before adding weight (see a pattern?). Matt said they looked good from what he saw, but didn’t look at all of them (obviously).
Used a 10# medball for my wall ball shots and I should have gone to at least 12. The challenge with 10 was purely the grind of the WOD (and getting hit in the chin with the laces every fucking round).
I really tried to pace through this one simply because it was a grind. Didn’t time my rests, but tried to go before I was completely recovered to learn to push through pain.
