Friday WOD and MTB training

This marks the end of the 8th week of my mountain bike strength training program. I can definitely feel the change in my core strength and I have progressed to being able to hold myself up in a handstand (against a wall). I still have hip soreness when I bike so I feel like I haven't made enough progress but there is still 16 more weeks to go!

I did the WOD first and then MTb training:
As many reps in 1 minute of each exercise then rest 1 minute and repeat 2 more times:
Thrusters 45 lbs
Kettlebell swings 25 lbs
Row for calories
Box jumps
You count all your reps and get a total: I got 310. This was a modified version of Fight Gone Bad, this felt way easier for me.
Afterward I did my MTb training:
Kettlebell halos 30 lbs
One arm kettlebell swings 25 lbs
Wall handstands
Chin-ups band assisted
Close squats
Bulgarian squats 30 lbs
One arm dumbbell rows 25 lbs

Also on the food front, I was pretty good this week but did have a breakdown yesterday, eating a bag of Godiva truffles. I tried to make up for it by going on a 4 mile run and eating a very healthy dinner ( see picture). Spicy extra lean ground beef with an avocado and red bell pepper- delicious!

Healthy dinner: spicy ground beef with a little pepper jack cheese, avocado, and red bell pepper

Dark chocolate truffle with sea salt and green tea, I wish I had stopped at 1 truffle!
