one day it'll all make sense.

weekend re-cap

I don’t know why I’ve been blogging vacant for a bit…  I’ve had lots of fun stuff to write about, but somehow no inspiration to do it.  It’s raining today and work is slow, so I’ll make an effort now 😉

slow day

** no joke…  so slow earlier that a co-worker and I got into the idea of a plank challenge with sh*t stacked on our backs.  I lost 😦  but lasted over 3 minutes with printers stacked on our backs…

So with all my excitement and enthusiasm in learning kipping pull-ups, I learned that I need to work on my strict pull-ups before getting into that sorta fun.  Boo :p  I was getting somewhere with it, but just couldn’t seem to get the last pull part I needed to get my chin over the bar.  I trust my coach completely though.  Gotta learn to walk before you can run…  So, pull-ups will be a mission of mine now so I can get to the point of being worthy of learning to piece it together with the kip.  This article was posted on the Crossfit Division facebook page a little while ago which further emphasizes the point my coach was trying to get across…  Gotta build strength from the ground up before jumping into something that is somewhat bound to create injury:

Today I got through benchmark WOD # 2,

Helen: 3 rounds, for time

– 400m run

– 21 kettlebell swings (red tape? Didn’t check what the weight is?)

– 12 pull-ups (w/green band)

finished in 20:33 drenched in sweat and breathing like I’d never set foot in a gym before.  It was AWESOME 😀

mud hero

Also completed my 3rd mud run of 2013 on Saturday, Mud Hero.  Same idea as Spartan and Warrior, but not 6km, not as hilly, better obstacles than Warrior, but not as challenging as Spartan.  Spartan is still my favorite, but I think Mud Hero could be my second…  I saw this one as a bit of a test to my time spent getting into the crossfit life since I haven’t run my usual 5km, 3x per week like I used to.  It was great though.  Pushed through the course without a challenge and crossing the finish line thought “it’s over already? sigh…”  Lol
