A blistering pace . . .

Did the Brand Wod from a day or so back, easy backyarder.

AMRAP 15 minutes

5 db thrusters @25% bodyweight so 40lbs, used 35.
5 overhead lunges
10 CTB pullups

5 rounds, +5 +5 +7 . . .

Doh!!

Two problems:

1) Should have gone for 40lbs. Because the the thrusters and lunges went faaaast but the pullups went slow
2) pullups were the log jam. At least 10-15 do overs and that was counting the "felt clavicle pass within one skin cell of bar . . . " pullups sheesh.

So I never got to where I was really pushing it. Great wod, but I need to get the pullups down so that I can use them as part of a metcon wod. I have to admit that after nearly two years of this, I still can't say that's the case. I seriously need to work on my sets.

Yeah, the only thing I blistered was my hands . . .

off topic but... well, so what...

I'll be bringing those weight plates to FGB for you...

and now, my request of you... could you send me a week or so of your actual zone food log? it doesn't have to be recent or anything. basically I'm just looking to get back into it without having to count the blocks... I keep on derailing myself when I'm trying to flip through the book to count blocks when I prepare food for a few days, I start eyeballing portions real quick and then the next thing I know I'm rolling through the Wendy's drive through
