Absence makes the heart grow fonder

Thruster 1-1-1-1-1-1-1

Not really sure if you can read my weight progression: 50-55-60-65-70F-55-55

50#s is the max effort I've ever attempted for thruster WODs, usually high rep, 55#s and beyond are all PRs. I'm very excited to be able to successfully thrust 65#s cause I'm this much closer to doing Fran rx'd. That is my immediate goal on the board: To do a benchmark girls' WOD rx'd. Now I just have to get stronger. To complement on chipping away at that goal, I decided to do a 2nd WOD tonight... the Pull-up Ladder WOD from a few weeks back:

With a continuously running clock do one pull-up the first minute, two pull-ups the second minute, three pull-ups the third minute... continuing as long as you are able.

I don't think I did that hot, but not that bad for someone who just started doing unassisted pull up less than 2 months ago. In the eighth round I knew I was approaching muscle failure, as at each rep I found it more and more difficult to get my chin above the bar. I will do this again soon and see if I can beat myself. 

The past couple of weeks have been that of transition. I moved. I started a new job. My attendance to the box was nil. I did my best during the 2 week Zone intro. I would say that I was 90% compliant. 100% the first week, the 2nd week I started to slack on the measuring but made sure that meals were at least balanced with  P/C/F. I found myself eating 2-5block meals instead of 3-3 block meals and 1-1 block snack. I think it affected my sleep for worse. Or it could also be that I'm ending my days sometimes at 2:30AM and won't be in bed until past 3AM.  Either way, I think watching my food intake I was able to retain my strength during my lapse away from the box. Tomorrow, I start a new regiment of a SFH shake (Daily Balance) for breakfast, with frozen berries and almond milk. I've been skipping breakfast, then I get all crazy hungry and eat something that I don't zone. No bueno. 

After the WODs, I came home with one desire. To get inside of this:

Yes that is an IPA. I really wanted wine, but I had no wine key :(

And this is me in my braising liquid :) 

Good night!
