Me Is Not An Animal

Last week I tackled the somewhat infamous CrossFit WOD "King Kong". I knew going into it that the 250lb squat clean x3 reps/rd would be the limiting factor for me. It went better than expected (6:19) but on the 3rd round I missed the s.clean twice before finally making the lift on the third attempt. It's a frustrating place to be: At the very end of a workout- Just a few reps from the finish line and miles away from finishing because your either gassed or at muscle failure or both. Today I decided to force myself into the same training scenario with the hope of raising my "I'm tired but I've gotta lift it again" game. After doing a strength WOD of Squat Clean 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 (155-185-205-225-245-265-275), I did 7 rounds of: 21 Ring Push Ups & 3 Squat Cleans @ 225lb. I'm pretty sure my time wasn't anything spectacular- the noon CFS WOD was on the clock so I didn't use one. But I do know that it was a tough one and was exactly what I needed.

In other news, Jenny started back at work today after being on maternity leave for the past 8 weeks. I picked the kids up today from their school/daycare. Actually, it's Emille's daycare and more a court-ordered daycage for Vin (aka "Animal"). Anyways, after expecting to struggle to keep both munkeys entertained, I was pleasantly surprised to get home and have Animal ask me if he could give Emille drum lessons...
