Cornucopia.

“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.” ― Ernest Hemingway

The Thanksgiving Holiday brought a holiday from updating my lovely blog. DuDs. I find if I let too many days pass by without writing anything then it all starts to slip away, that motivation to write and if too much more time goes by then the unthinkable occurs; catching up on blog posts seems too cumbersome and I’m tempted to stop altogether.

Isn’t that kind of the way it is with everything. Once you gain momentum in one direction it grows that much more difficult to put on the brakes and start in another. Particularly when it comes to being unhealthy. So, in an effort to recommit to the writing routine I’m here to post the last few days of WODs. Beginning with Saturday, through Monday.

On a side note, the diet has been, well, not on holiday, or rather, on a perpetual vacation. A full bore the gloves have come off and it’s time to partaay, since Thanksgiving Day. Speaking of unhealthy momentum.

It’s been a true cornucopia of no less then the following samplings: chicken wings (medium, extra crispy), blue cheese, Cape Cod potato chips, Cheesecake Factory chocolate and peanut butter cheesecake at 1,400 calories per slice, Sam Adams Lager, tuna melt with sharp cheddar, sausage stuffing, homemade gravy, D&D munchkins glazed and chocolate doughnuts, Joseph Carr Cabernet, homemade butternut squash soup with green apple and carrots, Pizzeria Uno Deep Dish pizza, Pizzeria Uno potato skins, house varietal pinot grigio, more hot wings (extra crispy), garlic wings (extra crispy with extra carrots and celery and blue cheese)…. And this is just a brief recap.

You get the idea.

Conditioning:

1) 2 Minutes Max Front Squats at 80% of 1RM

Completed: Round 1, 17 total Front Squats at 85lbs.

*Rest 2 minutes

2) 10 Minute AMRAP:

30 Double-Unders

15 Power Snatcthes (75/55)

*Rest 2 minutes

Completed: lost count on the rounds. 5 or maybe 6. RX weight at 55lbs. It’s just downright ridiculous that I do not have double-unders at this late date. So many goals, so little time.

3) 2 Minutes Max Front Squats at 80% of 1RM

Completed: 2nd round 14 total at 85lbs.
