There's a reason I've been a slacker. I haven't made, well much of anything since I last posted.  So I haven't had anything to write about there.  I also had/have an almost-hernia so my workouts have been less than amazing.  I've also been lazy.

I also may be waiting on a guest post from someone.  You know who you are!

The good news is that my almost-hernia is feeling almost perfect.  I'm still taking it a little easy, but I no longer have a stabbing pain in my lower abdomen every time I try to use my abs for anything.  Yay!

So I guess this can bring us to yesterday's WOD.

02/14/11 WOD
A)  Front Squats 5 x 10 (five sets of ten)

B)  3 Rounds
     75 Double Unders
     25 Pull Ups

I went pretty light on the front squats.  Doctor's orders are to breath while lifting for a little while so I've been focusing on form.  I'm focusing on keeping my back flat/arched, my chest up and my knees out.  I need to also work on leading with my elbows coming out of the squat.

Part B of the WOD wasn't so bad until I got to round three.  I was suddenly unable to string double unders together in sets larger than like 6.  And the more frustrated I got, the worse things got.  The key is to relax, but it can be hard to do when you have an inexplicable double under brain fart.

An almost-hernia? How is that possible with your abs?

I've been a slacker about working out too, thanks to a lingering cold.

I mean, not to be all "I'm awesome," but I know! Apparently it's just a congenital weakness down there.
