Deadlifts & Thrusters

I feel like going heavy today. It's been awhile... still nervous about denting my floor, but if it's nice out this afternoon, I might do this outside to eliminate that risk.

1 x 400m sprints (legs felt like lead, so I stopped after 1)
10 Ring Rows
10 (1 band) pull-ups
10 Ring dips (1 band)
10 KTC's
20 Ball sit-ups
10, 20# KB Swings

Short Metcon:
Complete AMRAP in 5 minutes of:
5 Ring Rows
10 Push-Ups
15 Squats

Rounds: 5 + 5 Ring Rows 8.25.09:


Thruster - 55-65-75 (all done outside, which was FUN!)
Deadlift - 115-135-155(PR)

I can now officially say I can deadlift more than my bodyweight (and that's bw BEFORE the weight loss!).

Thrusters felt strong and that probably had to do with the mental aspect of not being afraid to dump the weight if I had to. Next time, I'll try for heavier (basically, I was too lazy to go back inside to get weights:)!)

Side note: I have been feeling REALLY great lately, like REALLY great:). I attribute it to my cleaner eating. My previous anxiety over any type of social situations has dissipated and no more stomach upset after practically every meal. I'm more alert at work (I was always really fuzzy-headed feeling before) and I even had the self-confidence to ask for (and receive) a much deserved promotion! Now, if only all this positive energy/attitude would translate to a pregnancy, I would be on cloud nine. Oh well, it'll happen when it happens. :)

good work on the cleaner eating, it makes a huge difference in a lot of ways. I'm glad you are doing that.

and that is a great feat to get a BW deadlift... now let's see the 1.5x one. :)
