Two Rx WODs in a row, this is progress

The 6AM class was quite big today, 7 people!  Adam put us through an interesting warmup whereby we jump rope for 30 seconds and then do two box jumps in a row (1st a 15" box, then a 20" box), then high knee ups through the agility ladder and then high knees through some low parallette bars.  Repeat for two rounds.  The WOD today was:
Run 100M
Run 100M backwards
10 Cleans (Men 115 lbs, Women 75 lbs)
15 Burpees
5 rounds for time
I finished in 22:20 using 75 lbs for the cleans! And I did do full cleans, although I'm pretty sure I could have gone deeper in my front squat, I just hate that feeling of the weight in front of me and having to get down and then back up.  I definitely need to practice my front squats so it's not so uncomfortable.  I struggled in the first round with the cleans, it's definitely not ingrained in yet, so every time I go to do them, I have to relearn the move.  I ended up falling behind everyone in the class (last to finish the first round) but by the third round, I started to catch up because I can do burpees like nobody's business! Well at least my burpees are faster than most of the morning class, I can't hold a candle to some of the guys in the afternoon classes.  So having the endurance/stamina to do 15 burpees in a row without pausing helps and in the end it felt pretty good to do another Rx'd WOD, although I'm pretty sure when Jason does the programming, the Rx for women will be like 95 lbs for cleans, maybe they were just being kind today.

On other news, the 30-day eating challenge is going strong, I haven't had any bread or sugar for the last 5 days.  I had a lettuce wrapped burger at Red Robin last night and it was pretty good! I think I could stick to this and not having buns anymore on my burgers.  I did eat some french fries there so we'll see how successful this plan is since I still allow myself to eat rice, potatoes and pasta. I'll post what I have eaten this past week on Sunday to get an idea of what my overall eating habits have been like during the challenge.
