My Week
This week has been crazy busy and crazy long. I'm right back into my training, hanging with the family, and enjoying the sunshine. Two months of school left until summer time (YIPPEE) and we have tons of fun trips we are starting the planning.

My Food
Food is going well. Meat. Veggies. This week I didn't get enough veggies in, but that's a quick fix of "add more veggies". Duh. I successfully avoided the donuts in the teachers lounge. Victory!

Workouts: Here is my whole week

Thrusters 5x5 @80%
*got soooooo heavy.....I hear thrusters are "good" for you :)

Conditioning (I started with 125# and striped to 105#)
50 Double-unders
5 Hang Power Cleans (125)
5 Front Squats (125)
5 Shoulder to Overhead (125)
50 Double-unders

50 Double-unders 
3 Hang Power Cleans (125)
3 Front Squats (125)
3 Shoulder to Overhead (125)

**** 8 minute cap; record total number of reps if you do not complete in under 8mins
*I've done this workout. There was no time cap the first time and I did it RX. Not today my friend, not today. I did the first 5 cleans and 3 front squats at 125# and then had to strip it. I don't mind stripping the weight, but i let it get in my head. This workout took me too long and I did not have fun with it. I'm working on that.

233# for the deadlift.......saw so many stars. I do love deadlift.

*each round is 90sec + 30 sec rest; total of 2mins per round
*My first time doing HSPU's in a wod and not feeling like a dork! I am getting stronger and learning to push push push!
