year 1, week 17, day one

I went out for a run with my co-worker L McMomsie, this day on a trail run! We ended up going for 5.6km in total. Such a good feeling.

Before and after our run. I kind of want to make it a weekly occurrence to go with her on runs! Note to self: tie my hair up prettier next time. Ew.

year 1, week 18, day one

I went out for a solo run today on one of my routes. I ended up running 6km in 38 minutes. I felt slow, even though I sprinted a few times during my run. I dislike those sluggish feeling days.

year 1, week 18, day two

Bear Complex

Buy In:
30 Hollow Rocks
30 Superman Rocks (reverse of hollow rocks)
30 Jack Knives (basically a v-situp)

15 Rounds of Unbroken:
1 Power Clean; 135/95lb
1 Front Squat
1 Push Press
1 Back Squat
1 Push Press

I ended up lifting the most weight I ever have overhead, on this Bear Complex! 65lbs!

We had 25 minutes to complete the “buy in” and then do the entire 15 rounds of the bear complex. I tried to remember my exact time, but it was 23:20-ish.

year 1, week 18, day three

AMRAP 12

12 Push Press; 115/85lbs
12 Chest to bar pull-ups
12 One-legged squats

If you couldn’t do chest to bar’s, you would have to do kipping pullups and instead of 12, we had to do 15!

For the Push Press I used 55lbs in total and I finished two complete rounds and I was on the kipping pullups. I forget how many I did in my third round. I’m going to assume 7 or 8. I had to stop doing them as “fast” because I thought I was going to rip my hand open.

Contrary to your belief, this blood blister is not from the weights. It’s from the pullups. I promise it’s not painful, it just looks that way.

year 1, week 18, day four

Another run with my co-worker L McMomsie. We went on another trail run but at a different location! We ended up doing another 5k. She’s a super trooper (ha! I love that movie by the way) as she completed an hour of Boot Camp before I drove down to meet her for a run!

We even spotted some adorable bunnies (tons of them!) and stopped to snap a photo of a bunny AND A GROUNDHOG! Moses. The things you see…

I definitely worship seating after this week. My poor butt cheeks were sore after that run!
