Monday's WOD went great. We did Nancy, which is 5 rounds for time of a 400 m run and 15 overhead squats. The Rx for women is 65#, but I scale to 55#. The desired stimulus is to go fast and hard, so the OHS should be unbroken. I think yesterday was the first time I've done all 5 rounds at 55# unbroken. I finished in 14:31, which is 2 minutes and 46 seconds faster than the last time I did the workout on April 6, 2016. This is why you log you workouts folks. Data is awesome.
|I was particularly proud of my color-coordinated outfit for Nancy on Monday. Couldn't care less about what I wear for work, but my workout clothes are on point.|
I was so hungry Monday night before bed that I had trouble falling asleep. I wondered how much of that was mental, just knowing that I had eaten less, but I definitely felt less strong at the 6:30 AM Crossfit yesterday. I hit my 6x2 split jerks at 65#, 75#, 80#, 85#, 90#, 95#. That 95# did not feel as light as it has recently. The metcon had squat snatches at 145#. I probably would have used 125# at an evening class, but scaled to 105#.
Last evening I went to Be Hot Yoga for the 75 minute Bikram-esque class. I was so hungry when I left for class but the heat quickly made me forget and focus on my balance. For some reason, Bikram leaves me wide awake. I could have gone to sleep on my couch at 7 PM, but I was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed when class ended at 8:30 PM. That prevented me from falling asleep when I got into bed at 10. I slept in until 8 AM today, so I think I'll have to switch to the morning class if I plan on doing more doubles.
I spent the past weekend in Austin celebrating the spectacular marriage of two of the best people on earth. It was so much freaking fun. Epic dance party, old and new friends, all the Tito's and rosé. This was after nearly a week in Charleston.

|It was surprisingly cold and windy for Austin. I wore a suede jacket for most of the evening until it was dancing time.|
My weight on Monday was 147 lbs (not that bad considering the travel and celebrations) and 24.1% body fat according to the handheld thing I have. Today I weighed in at 144.2.
