Linear Strength

Hi Tumblrs! I’m considering a linear strength program. Any thoughts? If you’ve done linear strength and also, CF - what did you do with your WODs?? Thanks!!

Workout yesterday was a 3.29 mi WRJ. The germies took over and I was feeling super out of sorts. I was not in the mood to workout. I know CF mentally is to “push yourself”, but I decided to combine it with the yoga approach of “honor your body” thus the shorter workout with only 1 jog worked in.  Stilly, my body felt beat up and I was super snotty by the end of the day. 
12 hours of sleep later, I’m feeling much better but not 100%. I aches and pains have subsided, but still feeling congested and my throat hurts. I need some pho.

On-Ramp 7 

"Jackie" 1K Row 50 thrusters @ 33# 30 pull-ups, green band assisted

Time: 11:34

Highlights: 1. One of the skills we reviewed for on-ramp was double unders and the small modifications I made made my DUs so much better! 2. I now have to use a the blue band. That’s not really a happy highlight…it is more begrudging.
3. My row has definitely improved. 4. I forget if there are 10 or 12 on-ramp classes, but regardless - I are more than half way there!! As helpful the technical classes are, it def makes for a long night.

Non CF higlight: 1. I got another job offer!! Thank you God for the vote of confidence.

Other: I feel germs trying to creep into my body. Keep out germies…you are not wanted here.

I pre-prepped my am iced beverages for the next few days in an effort to save time and money. All it needs is my reusable tumbler, ice, maybe some cream, and maybe cinnamon. Flavors include: gingerbread coffee;  sugar cookie tea; strawberry tea; and banana, coconut, and chocolate tea.

I think I’m going to try to do this on a regular basis.

Snuck off to the library.  I heart the library. :) I got 5 books and 1 movie. I really need to go more often. I buy too many kindle books.

On-ramp #6…half way through. Woohoo. I have the hardest time cycling through weights. The push presses and the SDHPs nearly killed me.

Btw, our coach saw us struggle through the first round and lowered the reps to 15 for the last two.

On a brighter note, my wall balls have improved (last time I had to use the 10 pound ball), I learned a new way to do box jumps and how to do med ball cleans, Coach Iz said in 90 days I’ll see improvement in my muscular endurance and reduce my cycle time with weights, and I found new motivation (to be revealed later). Oh, and this workout 2 for the day. Haven’t done a double I’m awhile!
