So had I known today would be a Crossfit Total day, I may have done things a little differently on Friday. Not complaining though 🙂
1 Rep Max Deadlift – #245
1 Rep Max Back Squat – #170
1 Rep Max Strict Press – #80
After the 9:30am WOD, there was an Olympic Lifting Clinic with Coach Will focusing on the Snatch. The biggest GOAT in my farm yard, so just couldn’t skip that. Although I had a crap load of stuff I should have been doing instead, like oh… maybe my TAXES!! But come on…. it had my name written all over it. 2 hours working on my snatch. How does a girl turn that down? It was AWESOME. We broke the movement down in such detail and practiced each part to the point where I actually felt like it was sinking in! Didn’t pull from the ground 😀 Although did rush the top bit a few times and landed on my butt. But all good 🙂 I’m a little curious to see how my legs hold up for ball hockey tonight 😮
Half way through the snatch sesh, my stomach started complaining about how long ago breakfast was and when might lunch finally arrive. I guess it was justified after that WOD, but story of my life is usually:
I need a break of some sort. Not a rest day, but a mental break I guess. This week was long and I found yesterday I was counting the minutes until my shift was done. I don’t want it to be that way… I like my job, like the people I work with, I just need a break. Maybe it will get better when this week is over cause I’ve been dreading the manager conference that will keep me from my non-work life for 3 days. Tuesday-Thursday in seminars in Toronto and staying in a hotel. Yuko was not invited and will be staying at a guide dog bed & breakfast sorta place for the duration. Crossfit will go on without me too. And I’ll do my best not to slap someone lol. I did everything in my power to get out of this one, but even though my DM admitted that I don’t need to be there and could sleep through it without missing anything new, I’m still on the list. I’ll just have to lift heavy Tuesday morning to tide myself over until Friday.
Yuko and I checked out the off-leash park last night for the first time. He’s still a little young to romp with the big kids, so he stayed on his leash but played with a sweet little husky and seemed to enjoy it.
