Tuesday WOD and extra strength work

I had a good time at Forged Fitness this morning:
Run 800M
21 sumo Deadlift high pulls 55 lbs
15 kettlebell swings 30 lbs
3 rounds
16:55
I then rested for five minutes and did floor presses at 75 lbs: 8-7-6
I also attempted pull-ups buy jumping a little into the pull-up and got 3 singles this way.

I rested again for a couple minutes and worked on my back squats:
75 lbs 5 reps
85 lbs 5 reps
95 lbs 3 reps
I talked to Mike and told home I had a block going higher than 95 lbs because I wouldn't go all the way in depth squatting so he suggested trying a lighter weight and getting to the bottom and then bouncing up once to get up- this would force me to squat full and then use the bounce to pull myself up. I tried it with 75 lbs and did 2 sets of 5. My legs felt like they got a good workout from this. I am going to try it again and up the weight next week.

For breakfast: 2 eggs, 1 trader Joe's chicken sun-dried tomato sausage with collards and pepper jack cheese. I'm getting really good at using different greens now!

Lunch was a salad from Jason's deli, a mix of greens, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, chicken breast, apple slices, grapes and feta. Last night I had enchiladas and rice which I think helped me in the morning workout- giving me enough energy to do the WOD and the strength work.

is it sad that i'm more into the food posts rather than the workout posts, which is what this blog is supposed to be about? ;) i thought i'd be inspired by your workouts, but instead, i salivate over the food....
