oh, and hopeful future doctor.
5k runs are boring. especially fun runs…so our crossfit team decided to make it more interesting and run with sandbags. the boys did 120 lbs and we did a 60 pounder. 4 of us ran together and switched off every 3 minutes or so.
it would have been pretty great if not for the fact that the route was screwed up and they added an extra 2 km …
still. it was awesome. and i felt like a badass passing people while carrying 60 lbs on my back.
ironic because i named august the ‘month of the burpee’ and then didn’t do anything about it.
100 burpees for time
FML. Actually it went way better than I thought. I should have gone faster though. 8:52. Not terrible. I was at about 78 when we hit 7:00 which made me think about the first wod in the open. I would not have done very well…ah well.
Best day of the summer!!! CFT day!!!
I was so excited/nervous! I’ve actually never done crossfit total but it’s been a goal of mine to hit 500 for quite some time but before this my 1rm in everything was only at 465.
Then I back squatted 185. Easily. But coach said I shouldn’t be greedy since that was 10lbs over my PR.
I messed up counting on my shoulder press and accidentally attempted 105# (pr is 90) after 85. I failed and then failed on 2 attempts at 95. So I went back to 90 and just managed to squeeze out 1 rep. I’ve done it for 2 so I know I have more…but ah well.
I’d resigned myself to not reaching my goal since I figured I’d hit a 205-215 deadlift. But every single lift felt just as good as the one before it so I kept going until 225 and then did the math — 500 CFT!!!!
Again coach said don’t get greedy so I stopped there. I am actually so excited I want to jump up and down. Yeaaa.
Oh then I weighed and bf%’d myself. Weight I was fine with - I’m actually down a bit which is encouraging. My fat percentage is WAY up though - from 23 to 28 - which makes me think maybe her scale isn’t so accurate because I’m definitely in better shape now than I was in the winter…hrm.
20 min AMRAP
5 pull ups
10 push ups
8 rds + 4 pullups
I was excited because this was my first time repeating Cindy and it was my first ever WOD after foundations.
My only problem is that for some reason I thought it wouldn’t be so.damn.hard. and of course it was…because its crossfit…Anyway, I was hoping to hit more than 10 rds and I only got 8 so I was disappointed BUT I still did more rounds than last time and I did it rx’d for the first time so whatev.
20 minute AMRAP
5 rds + 100m
When I saw this wod I literally thought “fuck my life” but it ended up only being sort of as bad as I thought it would be. Burpees still need some work but strengthening my core is definitely helping.
that awkward moment when you run into the guy from the gym whose lost a hundred pounds in a year (yeaaa crossfit) and all you have in your grocery basket are chocolate covered (coconut) ice cream bars…
750 m row
3 rds: 5 pullups (strict w/ red band)
1 rm thruster
7 front squats @ 75#
fuck my legs..
3 rds: 10 box jumps (20”)
15 wall balls (20#)
20 sit ups
1 mile max effort run
150 wall balls
30 snatch @ 85#
total time: 18:02
i took about a 40 second break in between the two because I was BEAT. I think the mile killed me more than anything else. I’m actually a little disappointed because I think I could have crushed out Isabel. Also there was some confusion about the rx weight…I’m positive it’s 95 but coaches said it was 85…after 150 wall balls I wasn’t fighting it…and I was the only girl in the gym to do it so whatever.
Also, a SEVEN MINUTE MILE?! I didn’t know I was capable of doing an 8 minute mile. Mind = BLOWN.
aww i missed CF so much last week, it feels good to be back.
new PR! and that was for 2!
8 - 8- 8
35# - 55# - 85#
face pulls (weird)
10 - 10 - 10
cashout: partner med ball passes(14#)
6 x 30 secs
went to my first ever saturday wod. actually thought twice about going because i have to work (serving at a banquet) tonight and bartend all day tomorrow and that’s usually a pretty good workout on it’s own. but then i remembered i’m away most of next week and talked myself into it…
of COURSE i get hurt. tweaked my back doing stupidly heavy barbell farmers carries and now i can’t work tonight. or probably tomorrow.
crossfit i love you. why did you hurt me??
