120125 - The Deceiver WOD
An oldie but a goodie. This is around the time when I got to Level 1 badass in pushups at 25 reps.
Strength: Strict Press 3×5
55x5, 65x5, 70x3 - disappointed I couldn’t finish the last set.
Push ups 20/15/10/5
Wall Balls 5/10/15/20
Time: 6:30 RX
I swear that I’ve done this WOD before but I can’t seem to find record of it and I stupidly threw out my old WOD book when I moved.
I stalled on wall balls. Should’ve been able to string them better.
110825 - Post-WOD Mess
Literally. Note to self: don’t wear a white tank top when burpees are involved.
I felt mega weak today, strict presses were not impressive. Coach told me to save the baby under the bus and lift the bus so I did but barely, was rough because I’m sore and out of practice from my 2 week hiatus. Did pretty well on the WOD though! Teams of 3, two of the teams work as one.
CrossFit Catch Up!!
I have been so stressed and so busy and haven’t been posting my fitness happenings with exception of my ever so proud moment of reaching 22 strict push ups, making me a Level 1 Badass in my box! Yay!
Well, today was another proud moment….an extremely proud moment, but I’ll get to that in due time!
Monday 100712 “Smalls”
So I did something great….something I have been practicing for weeks on end, and like a dummy I did it without thinking and without Kris watching! He jokingly called me a liar and raged at me for not telling him so he could film it! Anywho…
5 @ 20, 25, 35, 45
3 @ 50, 55, 60, 65, 75 <—— PR!!!!
That is 15lbs more than my last PR which was almost a month ago!!!
Team “Smalls” WOD (Helen, Susan, Karina, Chris and I) versus Team “Talls”
(yeah that makes me one of the shorties)
100 pushups (mine were bench)
100 box jumps (med. box)
Time = 8:22
Team “Talls” beat us by about a minute…we concluded that they had longer legs to run faster with hahahaha.
Wednesday 100714 - Damn it, “Karen”
This was the epitome of my stress, I felt completely drained but went to training anyway. Figured I could try to get my frustrations and stress out with training. And what do I walk into? Effin’ Karen.
150 Wall Balls (10lb ball)
Time = 10:32
This was so brutal! 150 is a shit load and my legs and thighs were killing me! And they continue to kill me today, so sore! Definitely didn’t help that I was so drained and barely had energy. But it didn’t end there…
3x - 00:30 of whindshield wipers, flutter kicks, v-ups, and plank
…and it’s not over….in group of 3:
pass med. ball, slam med. ball, then drop ball and everyone plank hold for as long as you can hold it!
CrossFit 100607 - A Running Fool
Warm up/foam roll/ball roll/foot work/pre-moves
I also attempted some pull-up action…..dammit I am ALMOST there! Ugh.
Group warm up:
- 20 squats
- 10 burpees
- 20 push ups (med. box)
- 20 kettle swings (10 with 18#, 10 with 26#)
- 10 burpees
- Run 1 mile for time
When I read that’s what we were doing, I died a little inside. You all know how much I dislike running and the only reason I dislike it is because I suck at it. I know it’s a matter of conditioning your body but I suck at sticking to it.
My time? About 9:38
Reason I say “about” is because we’re not sure lol. On our half-way point he gave us our “split time” and then gave us our final time….yeah, I didn’t hear either one because I was in the zone and trying my hardest to breathe. But you know what??
I RAN THE WHOLE WAY WITHOUT STOPPING TO WALK AT ALL.
I know to you seasoned runners that’s like nothing, not even a warm up, but to me, that is a big step! So when I finished I also didn’t hear what he said, had to ask him after and he says he THINKS it’s about 9:38 lol. Give or take a few seconds I’m sure.
- Strict Press: 5x 35lb, 5x 45lb, 5x 50lb, 4x 60lb (last rep got too heavy!)
- Push press: 5x 45lb (and sadly that’s all I got to do because then I had to leave)
