Today's WOD had 2 parts:
1 Mile Run for Time - If you know anything about me you understand that running is not my forte. I ran it in 10'40" which sounds like a crazy slow grandma time (which is probably an insult to a lot of grandmas, so sorry) but I was pleased.
1-2-3-4-5 Muscle Ups
50-40-30-20-10 Double Unders
Since I can do neither of these I instead did: (Alternating between the three exercises)
3 Ring Pull-ups & 3 Ring Dips (with a band) and so on; 6&6, 9&9, 12&12, 15&15
150, 120, 90, 60, 30 Single Jump Ropes
The ring pull-ups were challenging but fun. I like that I can swing a lot harder on the rings. I was straight monkey on those rings! My new goal is to be able to do Five Ring Dips without a band so that I can attempt a full on Muscle Up! The video below is very inspiring and at 50sec into the video, one of the girls does a ring muscle up.
Weekend Meal Planning
After the competition I plan on making some food to prepare for the week. After my 3-day food journaling, I realized that I need to prepare some food in bulk over the weekend so that I can dish it out and have a meal in minutes. I decided to steal some ideas from my Aunt Maureen and our Labor Day weekend trip. During our stay my Aunt prepared a giant batch of "Summer Porridge" or cold oatmeal. She put lots of walnuts, cinnamon, and blueberries in a bowl with oats and protein powder and let it soak overnight. I am going to make a batch for breakfasts next week. Her recipe is for a really big batch but is as follows:
1 cup oats
2 cups water
2 scoops banana protein (mixed in with the water)
lots of cinnamon
a little ground flaxseed
Mix it up and put in the refrigerator overnight (or a couple of hours) for the oats to soak up the water and protein mix. It will still be kinda watery and more of a cereal type consistency, just use a slotted spoon to dish some out in the morning. I haven't tried to heat it up. I will experiment and let you know!!
Below is a photo of a Rice Milk Summer Porridge. I assume other types of milk would also work!
