Day 2 of my blog experiment has begun. Today is one of my favorite WODs the deadlift. Some days I just love to lift heavy stuff. Do I sound like a muscle head from the Y, probably. Although I am a little cuter than them. And, I don't kiss my biceps in the mirror, at least not in front of others.
Speaking of spectacle, I also love deadlift days because I get to show off my crazy knee high socks with short shorts when I do my 400m warmup run down the street. I'm pretty sure my neighbors are used to it by now but I still get some strange looks from passers by. Before you say anything, watch the demo and you'll see why they are a staple. The deadlift http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjBI9qxibTc is a movement in which you bring the barbell from the ground to your thigh as close to the body as possible. And with good form, bruised and scraped shins are a result.
Not much else to share this morning other than the kids are making me crazy and I need to get them out of the house. Oh and I'm going to work in a recipe here and there if I have time. Tonight will be sauteed shrimp, chicken/red pepper sausage and collard greens.
Food tip today: GO LOCAL. By some apples or pumpkins from a farm or farmers market. Everyone has access to one I don't care where you live. Do it and help out the farmers that actually grow our food and not the big corporate stores who overcharge for it.
Breakfast: oatmeal w/peanut butter, walnuts, bananas, cinnamon.
1x115, 135# deadlift
New PR (personal record) for me lifting 200 pounds 3 times. And a heartfelt thank you to Hannah for letting me borrow her navy blue soccer socks.
Have a great day!
