NEW Squat Max Filmed on Camera!

Hey there, I’ve got a BIG vlog today. Over the weekend I squatted a new max (160lbs x 2 reps) and Adam caught it on camera :).

Well he caught one of the reps on camera. After the first rep I thought I was DONE but then 30 seconds later I was like, “um, I think I have one more rep in me” and then I knocked that one out too!

I also saw my doctor yesterday and got a running update.

Check out the vlog for all the details:

The long and short of the incision update is that I am not yet cleared to run. The incision is healed on the inside, but the last bit of skin on the outside hasn’t closed up. There was some fibrous material keeping it from healing completely that my doctor removed yesterday. He also left the stitches in to help it progress quickly towards final closure.

*fingers crossed* that the next time I see my doctor is the last time for a very long time.

As for my video series on going for a new squat max, since that is now DONE AND DONE, I guess I’ll just have to go for 200lbs LOL! Just kidding, I’m going to keep filming my progress and will keep sharing as I progress along through the rest of winter and spring before I start training for my next race.

    Beast mode! and you dipped down down nice and low on that squat, well done!
    Love all the cute new tops πŸ™‚
    hehehehe, I love that you are freezing at 49 πŸ™‚
    At least you have the spin bike while you heal. It stinks it is taking so long.

      If I don’t go low enough Adam makes me do it again, so now I just make sure to go all the way down the first time hahah πŸ™‚

      49 is beautiful but very cold! I was so conflicted driving in the car yesterday. I had my sunroof cracked open a little because I wanted to feel the cool air, but I also had my heater on because I was freezing LOL!
