Today was not my day! :/ My back was still super sore from Monday’s WOD, so I was dreading doing more deadlifts.
A: Muscles Ups : Couldn’t do one of these AT ALL. I have 0 upperbody strength. Although I was told I have “good kip form.” One day I’ll be able to do it like this girl.
Calories: Rowing was no problem. I wasn’t fast, but I didn’t have to be. Burned about 60 Calories.
Dumbbell Snatches: I was SO mad I couldn’t lift 35lbs. I just couldn’t get it over my head cleanly. I tried 25lbs, then 20lbs. Still couldn’t do it right. Finally at 15lbs I was able to the motion correctly.
Deadlifts and Lateral Burpees: Before we started the workout, we set up all the equipment and tested out how much weight we thought we could do. I knew there was no way I was going to lift 185lbs today. But I thought… maybe 85lbs? Sure. Practiced, and while hard, I could do it.
But after once I started the actual workout, I couldn’t get the bar off the ground. Ended up reducing the weight to 65lbs, and did 3 sets total. 3 sets in 9mins. Ugh.
I know I’m new at this, so I’m not going to be superwoman right away. Especially with all the upper body stuff. But damnit, I’d like to be close to the prescribed weights for women.
Only walked 2.60 miles after class because my back is fucking pissed off at me. Immediately ordered one of these exercise stretch rollers once I got home.
Steven gets a hold of a magical time travel device and does what any kid would do - he uses it to make jokes. But toying with magic draws trouble to his sleepy beach town and Steven has to step up and save the day - with more jokes.
Did my first for real Crossfit WOD today. My arms and hands kinda feel like jello.
I made it a point to actually try and do “prescribed” weights, or at least more than my brain thought I could do for these workouts. I used the real 35lbs bar for the Split Jerks (hard!) instead the baby 15lbs.
And for the “Metcon” (wtf at these names), I did at least one set of 15 Snatch Deadlifts at 80lbs… then 70… then 65… because otherwise I would have been there all day. Oddly, I got faster every 400m run, so I wasn’t too far behind everyone else in the class. Finished at 21mins.
My Yelp deal for this gym runs out in 2 weeks, so I’ll probably find another box to go that’s cheaper (and where I can take fighting classes!). I’m going to need to sell quite a bit of extra art work every month if I want to keep this up. I’m gonna look like Korra, y’all.
And off to do my daily 5k walk because I’m kinda nuts that way….
