Been traveling last couple of days. Last WOD was Monday. Can't wait to resume training tomorrow.
Plan on making myself more awesome for sure...active recovery is a must

What's the general consensus on some steady state work at a low intensity on days like today? I'm thinking of sitting on Satan's tricycle for a while to pump some blood around
n e recovery should be done at a "walking" pace ... if u can't sing a song while working... u r missing the benefits :) I typically walk my dogs -bout 1 mile in am and 1 mile in pm ... but today!? I just want to sleep! gunna have to dig to find it in me to work my much needed mobility... I have a date with my PVC "roller" ( no pain no gain here right!? lol)I have to have lunch with my voodoo band ! planning on an afternoon randevous with my rolling pin (yes I'm cheap and broke do it serves a good purpose! plus I don't bAke cookies n d ways :) )hoping to be able to fit in a little lacrosse ball smashing somewhere in there,)
If i can I like to hop on the rower or airdyne as soon as i wake up. Today I started with a 2k rown at 2:30 /500m pace. Nice and easy. Then rolled out on the good ol rumble roller. Mobility and voodoo this afternoon!
Tell me about this voodoo... I know Kelly Talks about it but how does it work?
You and compress tissues with the voodoo band then take them through range of motion. Releasing the voodoo band after about two mins will create a new flow of blood to that area aiding in recovery.
Voodoo floss is the best invention ever! Kelly is a genius and my hammies n quads are grateful for the torture bands! Great investment, I suggest everyone have a pair of bands in ur WOD bag
1. Clean & Jerk - 195, 205... Lower back is complaining from the snatches and front squats last night, cut it short. Morning workouts are rough, think I need more warming up?2. "Angie" 22:59. Missed PR by 4 min.. Why? How? Morning syndrome?
I did the 10 hour turnaround Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and it wasn't so much the short timeframe between the workouts, but my lack of hydration, sleep, and (as you pointed out) warmup Wednesday morning. Plus, if you were following the Regionals Athletes schedule the last 5 weeks, then it's been 6 weeks since you trained hard 2 days in a row, let alone 3 days. Your body will get back into training mode quick enough. In fact, I feel great today so hopefully you do tomorrow.
Thanks potsy. Yea you're right it's been a few weeks since going hard son consecutive days. Will be hittin it hard again on Saturday!
Rested yesterday.Clean and Jerks85 - 92.5 - 97.5 - 102.5 - 105 - 110 (previous PB) - 112.5 (PB)- 115 (F) - 115 (F) - 115 (F) ( got the clean but almost blacked out when attempting the jerk )Angie - 19:20 (2 minute PB)
Had to take my rest day yesterday because of my work schedule. Did yesterdays work:1) 205, 215, 225, 235, 245, 250, 255 (fail jerk), 255, 260 (fail jerk), 2602) Angie 27:50...???? Not sure what the hell happened, but I hit a serious wall on the push ups... not happy with this at all. I kept fighting through it though. Overall, training session didn't go all that great. Move onto tomorrow
Did a 10 min. 2K row, plus plenty of stretching and rolling.
