workouts, 7.28–29.2014

Forgot to post these the other day(s).

7.28.2014

A: Hang power clean, heavy double

  • 185# — Heavy, heavy, heavy. On the second rep, I had to drop into a full squat, so I guess it doesn’t really count. Or does it?

B: 7 minutes, AMRAP

  • 7 hang power cleans (135#)
  • 7 burpees over the bar

4 + 8 — Rx weight was 155#, but I’m pretty sure there was no way I was going to be able to put in as much work with that weight. I feel pretty okay about my effort and numbers, although I need to fix some timing issues with my cleans. I am dropping under the bar too soon, so it just crashes onto my collarbones/neck. Instead, I should be getting under the bar faster, but later, so that the bar is just starting to rest on my delts as I ride the bar down into the power or squat position.

7.29.2014

A: Push press

  • 5-5-5-5-5 // 135# — Oooooof. For five reps, this was really heavy. Amazing how much more strain you’re under/how much more taxing it is when doing just 2 reps more.

B: For time

  • 50 wall balls (20#)
  • 1000m row
  • 50 wall balls (20#)

10:42 Rx — I guess getting sub-10:30 would have been nice, but this was hard as it is. Probably could have gone harder on the wall balls, but I haven’t yet figured out my breathing since you’re torso is in a compact position at the bottom of the wall balls. 

C: 1-mile run 

  • Took it easy, didn’t keep an eye on the clock. Just sprinted from the bottom of David C. Francis on the way back to CFR to finish the run. A little harder than I thought it’d be, but I suppose 100 wall balls will do that to you.

lipstickcontroversies: Don’t be fooled. It’s only because of my job and my camera. I still wish that non-European ethnic food were given more of its due here.

The Nose Dive Macaroni and Cheese: cavatappi pasta with white cheddar, hand-pulled chicken, poached eggs, and crispy chicken skin.
Personally, I like my mac and cheese creamier, baked into a dish like a cheesy, carby casserole. But the crispy chicken skin and the poached eggs were a nice touch.

Can’t remember exactly what this was, other than it was the lunch special. Fried catfish with cherry tomatoes and cucumbers in a cucumbery sauce. Or something.

Carrie and I grabbed a chocolate croissant from the Swamp Rabbit Cafe & Grocery tent when we got downtown to the market—the croissants are only available on weekends, apparently.
We sat down on a bench at McBee and Main and watched the little kids and the little dogs running around.
That corner might be one of my favorites in downtown Greenville. Sunlight filters down through oak leaves and there’s a nice cross breeze that alleviates the summertime humidity—for as long as you stay still, anyways.
