Week 5: Workout 2


Breakfast: Hard boiled egg, Greek yogurt, and strawberries with a cup of coffee and a scoop of protein.

Lunch: I had a MAD craving for hotdogs today! Turkey franks with Sriracha Mustard, hard boiled egg, cottage cheese.

For the first time ever, the protein in my coffee got clumped together – which never happens. I ended up tossing a lot of it out and just having black coffee instead. Strange little thing.

Coach Carl reached out to me for today’s WOD. I am not too nervous about it. The push press at 65# seems a little light but then I remember that over time, that 65# becomes 200# really quickly. I am stoked for deadifts, too. The last time I recorded my DL was for my max rep which was 275#. I can’t even begin to figure out what my 5RM is but I’ll definitely figure it out.

Mike is sadly sick so he’s out for today. I am trying to convince him to come with to at least keep me company.
