Friday was DC challenge, where the PE classes are split into teams and they compete against each other and all that fun stuff. This time I opted out and instead helped set up and judge the competition a bit, while studying for a test next period.

Today I'm feeling a little down on myself, a little doubtful. At least my sister is back from Stanford for the week. Hopefully this feeling will disappear by tomorrow morning.... I mean this morning lol. Whenever I wake up...
In the meantime, I would like to introduce you to the fluffiest and cutest kitten you will ever see:

Because cute kittens make everything better :)

Today, I learned 10 ways how not to snatch 80#. Unfortunately, I couldn't match my PR, but I got close with 75#. I could get under it, which used to be my problem, but I couldn't catch the bar and stabilize it. Bailing was pretty fun though, one time I had to kind of collapse forward into a fetal position to avoid the bar landing on my back. My friends compared it to watching a lift collapse.
 My collarbone doesn't hurt very much, we'll see how it feels tonight. My wrists are hands are pretty roughed up though, but they'll be fine :) Road to recovery.

Back in Business

10 Snatch (45#)
20 Clean (45#)
30 DB Thrusters (10#)
40 Front Squat (35#)
50 Push Press (35#)
60 Box Jumps
70 Pull Ups
80 Push Ups
90 Air Squats
100 Sit Ups

Today I decided to scratch what I what doing, and just follow my high school's programming. And it was great :) I'm pretty happy with today, a nice chipper was exactly what I needed. I did get a little light-headed throughout the workout, and I had to stop and rest more times than I would have liked. I could have gone a little bit heavier on pretty much everything, but this was good for starting out. I modified push ups and pull ups by doing then on an incline. Right now I'm icing my collarbone, which is a little sore, but not as bad as its been in the past. I just feel so much better :)

So I haven't posted in three weeks, wow. I keep on freaking doing this, and I'm not sure how to break this particular habit. I can't seem to do anything of importance consistently. And the real fail was last Friday, when I didn't get front squats done like I should have. I did cheer for our guys' cross country team when they won section champs for the third straight time, I did cheer for Karlie Garcia when she beat the[read: her] course record by 14 seconds, and I did go see the new Immortals movie(very good movie btw). But apparently getting my front squats in wasn't a priority. I have an unstoppable determination, I just need to figure out my priorities so that I can apply that determination properly. I'm not even sure if I want to continue with my strength program. So I have some thinking to do. Wish me luck :)
