Crossfit is the headliner today no question!! An impromptu trip to Burlington on my way home from dinner with my dad and sister last night voided any chance to make the 5am class this morning, but things happen for a reason sometimes I guess. Got to the box just in time for the 7:30 class and was the only car in the parking lot aside from Coach Rachel. Eek! 1 on 1 = it’s just YOU kid!
Thurs May 5:
Part 1. 5 x 500m Row: Alternate with a partner until you have both completed 5 rounds in total
OR 5x500m row with 2 min rest between*
Part 2. “Heavy Grace” 30- Reps Clean and Jerk for time #225/#155
Result – 9:36 #95
*goal was to maintain consistent split time for full 500m – 2:06 / 2:04 / 2:02 / 2:00 / 1:56
The last 500m row killed me! It wasn’t that much faster than the rest, but the only round that I struggled hard to keep the split the whole way through. Then a quick rest, a short warm-up and into a “heavy Grace”. Fantastic trickery!! I read the posted weights and thought “pffft!! We’ll be scaling that nightmare!” When I dropped the bar after my 30th rep, Coach Rachel got all excited… You just did Grace Rx!!! Oh shit!! First time 😀 Amazing!!
In a bit of a round-a-bout kind of way I got my 4 CF workouts in this week 🙂 Made it to CFD Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and did a variation of the posted WOD at the World on Wednesday. Just can’t make the 7:30 time slot at CFD when I have to work at 8! A new schedule is coming though which includes 6am Wednesday classes! Double header again this week at ball hockey tomorrow. It’s a little disturbing how excited I am about that I think.
Wed May 4:
3 rounds, not for time:
40 good mornings #40 bar
15 DB bicep curls #15
20 reverse lunges #40 bar
10 bent over rows #40 bar
The second part of this ^^ was long and tedious and really weird to be doing after all this time in a gym. Good though. And my hammys HURT today, so it was effective I guess!
I should really stick to animals. I mean, I kept Dr. Tom happy and healthy for more than 3 years. I mean, I think he was happy but it’s hard to really tell with a fish… And Yuko shared an incredible almost-year with me. But plants are just not my forte. I got a comment from my cleaning girl this week – Um, the plant upstairs is dead. LOL!! Yeah. Amanda brought me a cactus to kill a few weeks ago too. Very kind, but I don’t like it’s chances of survival even though it’s a cactus.
