one day it'll all make sense.


element 6

Rest day yesterday, but spent it surrounded by inspiration.  My box had 4 teams competing in a local crossfit challenge and I went to check things out, take pics and cheer on my community.  🙂   It was awesome!  My first experience of crossfit-meets-competition and great motivation to keep working hard to better my own lifts/squats/metcons 😀

While I had a great time yesterday, I completely failed in the food/hydration categories.  😦  I packed myself a good breakfast cause I figured I’d be there for a few hours, but didn’t bring near enough to last me through until 5:00pm when I finally made it home.  Ya just can’t grab something quick and easy that conforms to my Paleo world.  I also didn’t bring my water in with me…  was trying to “travel light” considering I had a fairly substantial camera to lug around.  And it was pouring rain all day.  And my car was 40 miles from the front door.  No excuses today.  Today, I’m back on track 🙂

Sunday’s WOD was fun.  A little partner challenge:

20 minute AMRAP

– 3 clean & jerks    #75  let’s not talk about Rx for this one.  It’s kinda daunting how far off I am, but I’m closer than I was 😉

– 6 burpees (6″ jump)    scaled this to burpee/jump on plate cause I get dizzy :S

My partner and I each completed 12 rounds.  The #75 was challenging, but doable.  I wanted to make sure I was able to keep good form for the entire 20 minutes.  🙂

element 5

Today, we go back to the heavy sh*t.  I’m both excited, and scared at the same time.  Tomorrow is the start of the third week of our build phase.  Week four is a de-load, but not before the sh*t gets crazy once more.  Adding #15-#20 for squats and #5-#15 for presses will look like this:

back squat   #110-115

front squat   #105-110

deadlift   #150-155

push press #70-80

strict press #65-75

Jeezuz.  Just over a month ago, I was all smiles after completing a WOD containing #85 deadlifts.  #150 is once again the mixture of fear/excitement that gets me high :p  Another thing that brings the #boxlove… if I could only deadlift a broomstick, I’d still feel the same support of the CF Division family 🙂
