Sand Bagging

These are quite possibly the CUTEST wild felines I have ever seen.  Not to be confused with Cat Sand.

Only cat related Sand Bag I could find on the interwebs.

Today’s workout was a bench workout and one of the tests for No Bread, a healthy eating lifestyle type contest that Craic does a couple of times per year.  Jarrod asked me if I had a plan this morning, to which I said “No.” and he said “Well, I guess your plan was to just show up and that’s the most important.” I’m paraphrasing, I think that there was a “fuck yea” in there or something – but I was sleepy.  I didn’t even set my alarm this morning, I just happened to wake up in time.  Been a really shitty week emotionally, so I just haven’t been sleeping well, nor motivated to workout.  But I woke up and I showed up to Craic.  Boom.

“Helen”

3Rds For Time:
400m Run
21-KB Swings
12-Pullups

I scaled / modified my version of Helen.  Tried a couple of practice swings with the 18# KB and it was way too light.  Went conservative and went with the INT weight which was 26#.  I think any heavier would have pulled my shoulder forward a bit too much, so I’m happy with the weight I chose.  As mentioned 1000 times on this blog, I really hate running.  Jarrod had us do a total of two 400m runs before the workout even started.  They felt terrible.  I went up to him before the workout and was like “Um, my runs are going to be REALLY slow – and this workout might take me like…more than 15 minutes” – but Jarrod was confident that wasn’t the case, especially because I was going light on the KB and doing ring rows instead of pull-ups.

He was right.  And called me and another person working out today sandbaggers 🙂 Final time was 11:42. Runs were uncomfortable, but not terrible.  So that’s an improvement, right?
