one day it'll all make sense.

Quick recap

10/27/2013

b4b  004I make dumb faces when I concentrate…  hmm.  At least I don’t stick my tongue out when lifting like I do at hockey I guess.  Today Crossfit Division held their Barbells 4 Boobs 🙂  It was a lot of fun.  Great time spent with great people and we brought together more than $1100 for Grand River Cancer Centre.  I’ve seen people I care about put up a fight against this disease, some are still fighting, some were taken far too soon…  The 30 clean & jerks we did today were nothing compared to what anyone dealing with cancer goes through and it always feels good getting involved in helping out a great cause.  I had moments during my 4:13 workout of thinking “hey hot-shot!!  You had to go for the extra 20lbs?” but I survived :p

This morning was the start of our final de-load week for the “build a stronger shell” (bigger can if you’re a dude and the name appeals) phase.  Tomorrow I’ll be heading out of Waterloo for a GM conference and won’t be back to the box until Friday 😦  sigh…  Today’s workout had many parts to it:

Warm-up:

row for 20 calories, then 2 minutes

20 reps, not for time: push-up, 20″ box step-up & over

WOD:

Back Squat: 10-10-10-10-10 @ 40%-50%      #65
Push Press: 10-10-10-10-10 @ 40%-50%      #55
Pull-ups: 15 reps    black band (WOOT)

20 reps, not for time: dumbbell push-up, 20″ box step-up & over   #22.5

8 rounds: 40 sec conditioning ropes, 20 sec plank hold

Nice way to work up a nice little sweat right at the end there 😉  This was enjoyable.  After the DB box step-overs, my forearms were absolutely ON FIRE!  LOVE.  😀

In one of Dave’s sermons last week he brought up how he doesn’t want up to specialize in one specific element of fitness, but rather to become good across the board.  Growing up, my life was about specializing in whatever I found an interest in… Oops!  I’ll get into that later though.  Looking for pics to back this up, and off to my dreaded manager’s conference today. Why dreaded? Cause I’ve got visions of one of the gossip hot topics being “wow! Kate’s put on weight!”  My head is not in a good place about that right now… I may spare you the crying, or that might come later as well.  Sorry, you were warned.

  1. No crying. Ok, I’m totally not one to talk. Crying is ok, as long as it creates action to do something about whatever is making you unhappy. 🙂
