31 Jan 2015 - Sat
Well, I've messed up and didn't update all January :( . D'oh!! The rundown:

First three weeks of the month: Bronchitis and sinus infection :( . These hit me hard and long because the all the immune suppressant meds I take for my autoimmune disease :( . Missed work and the gym quite a bit.

Last week: feeling better after a good round of antibiotics only to be hit with a huge "flare up", I often get these after being sick because I cut back on said immune suppressants when I'm really sick (yes, doctor recommends this). Haven't been able to lift all week, can barely walk :( . Tried to take the dogs hiking today but only made it about 50 feet before being in too much pain to continue!

Jan. 16, 17: Strongman comp! Went to it despite being in the throws of illness at the time, was probably a bad idea but did it anyway.

Farmers Carry: 155 lbs per hand, distance in one minute. I went 215 feet.

One-arm Shoulder Press: 55 lbs dumbbell reps in one minute and I got 14! That is huge for me and I've really been working on this one lift in particular.

Tire Flips: 350 lbs, flips in one minute. I got 12.

Stone Carry: 160 pound rock carried 40 feet. I did it in 9 seconds (that time includes the pick)

Yoke: 365 lbs over 40 feet, did it in 10.2 seconds.

Deadlift for reps: scratched it, was supposed to be 275 lbs for reps and I couldn't budge it from the ground even once.

Atlas Stone, 145 lbs over 54-inch bar in a minute. I got 4, almost 5 but I didn't get one over the bar and dropped it.

Overall was pretty happy with what I was able to do being unable to breath the whole time, kinda bummed I was the only "lightweight" woman though so got first place by default yet again. I wish they had combined all the women into one class. I'd rather be third place behind the two "heavyweight" women that winning by default!

I haven't been posting my hikes, I've been going put 3 times a week. Some are short and only a few miles but I have been pushing some further and loving it. Time is usually my only constraint though, I go out before work.
