one day it'll all make sense.

Aim high. Way high.

Crossfit + running has made this even more of an issue:

I need that shirt, it’s the story of my life.  Anyways, I set a pretty ridiculous goal for myself at the beginning of January to run 100km before heading to the Dominican.  It’s not going to happen!  But I’m ok with that.  As of today I’ve achieved 60km and my flight leaves in 2 weeks, less a day.  I’ll come pretty close though and I’m proud of that 😉

My good #makeotherpeoplebetter moment for the week – convinced Smarti to meet me at the track for a run this morning 🙂 she killed it and I trotted another 5km toward my lofty ambition.

This morning I also stuck to my pact to just run and take a pass on the Friday WOD.  There was a CFD group breakfast planned for after, so I still went to mobilize and cheer people on.  It sounded awful when I read it last night and the look on the face of everyone doing it told me this was actually the truth. OTM for 30 minutes – even: 15 calorie row, odd: 15 burpees.  Ya, my rest day earned even more justification.

I couldn’t post this yesterday cause Dave wanted to keep the insanity a secret for the classes later in the day.  It also wasn’t posted last night. I checked the site over and over and finally came to the conclusion it wasn’t coming.  Probably for the best. It was awful.  But looking back there’s a sick little part of me that loved it.  And wishes I would have pushed a little harder.

Thurs. Jan. 22:

Start Wallballs #20/#14 and see how long you can stay ahead of these milestones and at failure, REST 2 minutes and perform MAX set of strict Muscle Ups:

30 Seconds- 12 Reps
1 Min- 25 Reps
1:30- 37 Reps
2:00- 50 Reps
2:30- 62 Reps *
3:00- 75 Reps
3:30- 87 Reps
4:00- 100 Reps
4:30- 112 Reps
5:00- 125 Reps
5:30- 137 Reps
6:00- 150 Reps
Rest 3 Minutes between rounds.

Result – 12+25+37+50+61 / 27 muscle up transitions

Ok, I scaled a little with a #12 wallball but no sandbagging it, I just wanted to be able to make it farther through the rounds.  In the 2:30 round, I got through 61 reps.  Yup, 1 rep short.  Let’s consider this though.  My mind had the split-second decision – do I fight for as many reps as possible (without completing the task) or dig deeper and finish the round?  The later would be a WIN, right?  Or maybe not… cause the “reward” would be the chance to attempt to complete 75 more.  75 more wallballs.  Half of Karen isn’t my idea of a reward…  Yet it was one of those WODs I’ve replayed in my mind a few times already.
