After some VERY skewed dunk tank results late Monday night, I went to Ben for my apples to apples comparison yesterday. With that, here are my post-challenge learnings.
I don’t have three. I really have one, in three parts, and it’s really this: much like a long, grinding WOD, nutrition is purely mental. 1.a: It’s all mind control.
We talk a lot about short-term pain for long-term gain, so 1.b is: it’s the individual moments in time – when the ice cream comes out or when it’s time to choose wine or water – that tested me most. I found that I could say no to these things and, surprise, I didn’t die. And, once the gains started coming – feeling and looking better, a big PR on Surfer on Acid – the power of positive reinforcement turned out to be a powerful force indeed.
Finally, 1.c: Paleo Challenge planning is the mother of successful execution. It was always too easy to take the quick fix of a sandwich or whatever while trying to get the kids ready for school. I found that having the right food on hand made it just as easy to throw a bunch of real food together and it tasted just as good or better. That’s probably the biggest takeaway for me.
2.75in off the middle
4.5lb less on the scale
4.4% body fat gone = 7lb of fat off / 2lb muscle gain
1:29 pr on Surfer on Acid

Got to train with little, but mighty, Kathy Langen today who PR’d her 3 rep push press by 15# at 100#!!! She almost missed the first rep, but pulled it together and moved like butter for her next 2 reps. SO cool to witness, girl. Congrats!

3.5 mile run, with the middle 1.5 miles at short tempo pace.
Um, when I mapped out my run by work, I didn’t really understand the route, apparently. The second .75 miles of the tempo portion were ALL UPHILL. Oof. Was a bit slow but made it.
