100m Farmer's Carry (35#'s)
End Result: 4:51 / Such a short workout, but still really fun! Loved the combinations of movements.
About 10 HS walk attempts / Only took an average of two steps. If I remember, my upper body/shoulders were pretty sore so it made these feel more challenging and difficult

5x 3reps: 55# / 65# / 70# / 85# / 85#
Really had to work on positioning. Needed to put more weight on the outside/ball of my back foot. Had to keep front foot in line with hips/bar; straight up and down like a push press almost. Need to just DROP under the weight of the bar.

SU - :36 and :35
DU - 1) two 2) three 3) three / It was not a good day for DU's, and that is just fine.

This was a much needed rest day for my muscles. I was definitely looking forward to it!

A: 8 EMOM (until failure) Thruster @ 55#
OUCH for my shoulders. They were so sore/achy I wanted to shed a few tears while doing this EMOM. Of course, once I was into the 10's and the last set of 12, my shoulders finally felt warmed up. I broke up the reps once they hit double digits.
B: 4 RFT (20 Cap)
2 rounds of Cindy (5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups, 15 air squats)
End Result: 3 rounds + 33 reps - EXPRESS / Chose to do this level because of the impending Granite Games qualifier WOD on Saturday. I was happy to string all five pull-ups for the first 2 rounds of Cindy - felt like such a great accomplishment after all my hard work.

Grante Games Qualifier 15.3 [Scaled]
50 Cal. Row
50 Wall Balls (10#, 9' target)
50 S2O (65#)
50 Box Jumps (20")
End Result: 259 / So proud of being able to get back to the wall balls. Yes, I probably could have done the RX version of this workout, but I was still extremely happy/satisfied with my choice; after dealing with really tender and sore shoulders, I do think I listened to my body. Doing step-ups instead of true box jumps was another good idea, as I could keep a pace going. Adrienne judged me, and I felt she was a good motivator (and pacer) for me during this chipper.

Sleep / Nutrition
Excited to get on track with talking about how Eat to Perform is going, and just be honest about how sleep is feeling as well.
