Tuesday February 10.

Up, coffee, egg and nuts.

WOD: Power Cleans 3-3-3-3-3: Started heavy sets at 95lbs, ended up staying at 105 for the rest to work on form. MK and I actually ended up doing at least 7 sets of 3, then a little more at lighter weight, 95 again and then down to 85lbs. Really trying to focus on form and technique- specifically, keeping my arms straight until the bar reaches my hips and I go into the triple. Video really helped today.

Breakfast: 2 eggs, chicken, grapefruit, avocado, walnuts.
3-2-15. Went over on fat. Will fix it later.

Having said that, I am reading about how fat and fiber slow down the digestion process for this PWO meal, breakfast for me. Anyone else care to comment? I've never really carb loaded PWO since my daily carbs are 4-5B total anyway...that would mean 2-3B at 'breakfast' is half my daily allotment AND typically, it's usually 30-45 minutes post training when I eat anyway...even an hour, so the window of opportunity is about gone meals just don't vary that much in terms of blocks. 3-2-12 or 3-1-15 is about all the variation I do. I'm just thinking out loud to see if any of you are dealing with the same stuff....I want to maximize the benes of WHAT AND WHEN I put food in my mouth.

lunch- mahi (Costco, v. good), y & o pepper, avocado, walnuts.

snack of egg white, almond butter. YES, ab! Who needs Ada's when you have Fresh Market?

waiting for my man to get home so we can break bread together.
egg 630pm

din- mahi (yes, again) but it's really good, brocc, avocado, evoo.



  1. Yeah, remember the window of opportunity for the post WOD meal is very narrow. The process is called "non insulin mediated glucose transport" but the mechanism that allows this to happen after an intense WOD fades quickly. Fat will slow down the digestion process, but Robb seemed somewhat neutral on the subject - like if you notice you feel sleepy afterwards then you have taken in too much carb without enough fat, and you should add some fat in that meal. Again, ultimately it's going to be one of those things you must tinker with. ~ J

  2. Buried!!!!!! I miss my friend Sarah!
