Veggies and Sleep and Training, Oh My: 9/22/09 Report

My report from Tuesday, September 22, 2009, faithfully submitted for your review… (Read this if you’re wondering why I’m posting my veggie list.)

Hrs of sleep:
8.5 (Sweet! 8:30 p.m. – 5:00 a.m.)

1 c sweet potato
2 carrots
2 cucumbers
4 c cabbage
1.5 c snow peas

1 c strawberries

CrossFit Women

  • 25 burpees

4 rounds:

  • 21 situps, arms straight overhead
  • 21 kb swings, 16kg
  • 21 ring dips, blue band

With a partner (thanks, Stacey!):

  • Leg drops, max reps or 40, whichever comes first… I did 51!
  • :30 wheelbarrow hold
  • Max leg drops… I did 40

The skinny
Sssshhhh…. I’m starting to like ring dips. I look forward to the day I can do them without the band, but I love that triceps-on-fire feeling, and with every tingle of agony, I imagine the smooth, lean arms I’ll have one day.

It was raining HARD so the 25 burpees took the place of our usual 400m run. That seems unduly harsh, and man! I love burpees, but they were challenging.

Kettlebell swings and I have found a detente, but meh. I don’t love ’em. However, the 16kg kb is feeling “normal” now, so I guess it’s time to bump up the weight on those. Um… yay?

Here’s something to think about: On Monday and Tuesday, I made an effort to eat even more vegetables and to keep my fruit servings to a maximum of two. You can see that on Tuesday, I only ate 1 cup of strawberries. I had them twice, just in 1/2-cup servings, instead of my usual 1-cup… that way I still got to have a sweet treat twice. Anyhoochie, my energy was off the charts at band practice last night, and I’m going to keep my eye on this new development to see if I can attribute the increased energy to more veg/less fruit.

Anyone with some science on this wanna chime in?
