First note – My August Challenge now has it’s very own page 🙂 Easier (I think?) than a new post every day. See:

Ok, “Embrace the SUCK”. Could that be a slogan for crossfit? Cause it totally fits a whole heck of a lot. Today’s WOD for sure was about this. And the warm-up too! Then, I decided to get my 1 mile run in after and there was even more cause for embracement. <-yup. I’m making up words again. After the warm-up, my BUTT was screaming bloody murder. Then we spent 5 minutes hanging out in the bottom of a squat with a kettlebell. Then it was hard to stand up. Then 84 thrusters? Good times! Why am I kinda bitchy today? Haha! Weird :-p
warm-up: Death by Rowing
6 rounds of:
13 -Thrusters #95/#65 #55
14- Pullups green band, ring rows
Time – 16:03 (I think :s)

Got to the box early cause I needed to get out of my condo to stop myself from eating everything that wasn’t nailed down. I hate those days. Figured it was a perfect opportunity to toss my mile run in before the WOD and before it got too hot out anyway. Then the warm-up was announced. It started with a mile run. Brilliant Kate :-p but at least I have one less mile to make up for the month!
Teams of 2 SMASH OUT:
A running 15-Minute Clock, Row 1000 Meters
In time remaining, AMRAP:
30- Wallballs #30/#20 #16
Partners may partition the reps as needed
Result – 16:00, 4 rounds
Officially, we finished 3 full rounds + 30 wallballs + 17 burpees, but decided to finish our 4th round anyway 🙂 I had a great partner and had fun with this one. Although the wallballs got heavy fairly fast. Do you find pretty much every WOD has an “OH FAWWWWK!!!” moment? I do. Today I think it was more of a premonition though cause it hit me as I watched my partner FLY through the first 250m on the rower!! Fast row = more time for wallballs/burpees! OH FAWWWWK!!
I have a little side project which should be starting soon. I have an opportunity to get back into the horse scene a little through a friend. Her father owns a horse who has only ever been ridden western, but my friend desperately wants to jump. Cue my project… teach Marley to jump. 🙂 Plans fell through to start the process today, so I got some food prep started for my week instead. How’s a little chicken curry sound? It certainly smells amazing…
There should be a photo here. I took one. A good one. Then realized that my Waterloo manager PC has decided “efff YOU man!” So the photo will have to wait. Use your imagination. It’s beautiful.
