I was attacked by badgers this morning... or well rather one badger really... curses... I hate it when I get attacked by badgers...
I mean, come on, those things aren't nice and with the sharp teeth and the claws and the eeek! Ok, Ok, so perhaps I'm stretching the truth JUST a SMIDGEN. Ok, I wasn't really attacked by a badger PER SAY.... but I did get my butt kicked by a Badger! :P ("Ok Brand, Michael Jackson didn't really use the bathroom at my house... but his sister did!" If you know where that comes from points to you!)But anyway, I knew today was Badger because I happened to check my Facebook and saw that Jerry had commented to Adam about it. I nearly didn't go in because of that, and I actually agonized for a bit. But, with everything that's been going on, I just can't keep letting it drag me down. I need to keep in the Blue Room. So, up and at 'em I was at 0445 and away I went.
I warmed up my squat cleans, hit a few chins, and got ready to tackle the Badger. Jerry was talking about going from the floor, and he's been asking me about that a lot lately. I know he's tryng to get me to have good form and increase my range of motion, and so I thought that's what he was telling me this morning. Well, we settled in, and so away I went pulling from the floor. If you're not familiar with Badger, here is the bone up on it:
3 rounds for time
30 squat cleans (w 65lbs m 95lbs)
800 meter run
So, as I'm about oh, 24 reps into the first set, Jerry said, "Katie we're going from the hang!" And I said "But you asked about the floor!" We then realized that I was uber confused, which is not all THAT unusual, and I was being stupid. But, since I started from the floor, from the floor I stayed. I did 90 squat cleans from the floor. OW! I didn't realize how much more pulling from the floor gases you. It doesn't seem like much, but holy cow. I was panting and could only do 3 at a time. Maybe 4 a few times. I was gassed. Throw in the 30 chins and the run, and I thought I was going to die. This was not a PR day for me, but last time I didn't pull from the floor. I went from the hang, so naturally it will be somewhat faster, but my time today was over 3 minutes slower than before, which feels utterly depressing, even though I know I did more work. I think my time overall was 46:34. :( I'm not pleased.
BUT, on a wonderful note... I went shopping at Tarzhay last night, and I happened to have one of those sorts of nights where I wander aimlessly through the store. Well, I discovered, that Tarzhay is an awesome place to buy cute pj's! They had all sorts of fleecy and flannel pants for $10 and then shirts that matched for $7. So I bought some polka dotted pants with a green shirt to match some of the polka dots... and then... tee hehehehehe... I bought socks. Tehehehehe... they are cream and blue to match some of the polka dots, and they... tehehehe... they have a hole for each toe. Heheheheheheh. Oh they make me giggle... :) But they are seriously the most comfy pj's I have.... and I predict that by 500 tonight, I'll be wearing them... :) AWESOME!!!!! :)I love lazy weekends!!!!!!!!! :)
