So yesterday's WOD was a bit of a rerun of Monday. You see, Monday for a warm-up we did a light KB Circuit, 3 rounds 1 min work/30 sec active rest (5 KB Push-Ups). Yesterday's was eerily similar.

Tuesday, 3 November


M.E. Push Press: 3-3-3-1-1-1

KB Circuit: 3 Rounds, 1 minute work/30 seconds active rest (5 KB Push-Ups)
High Pulls
Reverse Lunges

So my ME Push Press is now 135. I attempted 145 but didn't quite make it. For the KB Circuit I used a 30 lb KB. I think I will be able to move up soon. We'll see. I still am unable to do the KB Push-Ups properly, but that is alright. I do what I can and they still work pretty well.

Double Under What What?

Yesterday's WOD was a new one for me. It went well, I thought, even though I was extremely slow at it.

Monday, 2 November

WOD: Annie Plus


400m Run

My ability to do more than one Double-Under in a row is nonexistent, meaning I have to do a single between each double. This makes any Double-Unders I attempt take a ridiculously long time. Ah well. My goal was to do And I did. The Sit-Ups and the run were bad. I finished in 28:14.

Tire Flip and Other Fun Things

The last few days of CrossFit have been especially great. Well, all except for last Wednesday when I really stunk at it. My body absolutely refused to do what I wanted it to so I had to modify things a bit. By Thursday I was feeling better and got back into the swing of things.

Saturday, 31 October: Happy Halloween


1 Mile Run


Burpees, Pull-Ups, Box Jumps, Push-Ups

1 Mile Run

I really enjoyed this WOD. It was tough without being completely exhausting. I used Ol' Blue for the Pull-Ups because my arms were fried. I also modified my Push-Ups fro the same reason. I finished in 36:15.

Friday, 30 October:

WOD: Partner Workout

2 Rounds, 5 Minutes Each Station

Tire Flip/Carry
200m Body Bag Carry
5 KB Pulls/Ball Slams
KB Snatch/Berry Pickers

Again, I liked this WOD. The variety of movements kept you fresh. This was the first time I have ever done the tire flip and I managed to not only flip to but carry it with my partner back to the starting line. It was good.

Thursday, 29 October


Pull-Up Ladder

Barbell Press
10 RDL between sets

3 Rounds:
30 KB Swings
30 Burpees
30 Sit-Ups

I did not care for this one. First off, I hate one-armed barbell anythings. I managed to make it up to 40lbs by the end, but it was tough, especially for my left arm. We used 115lbs for the RDL. My hamstrings definitely felt it the next day. I used 30lbs for the KB swings. Oh yeah, I did the Pull-Up ladders using kipping.

Wednesday, 28 October

I would rather not talk about my pathetic attempt at the WOD. Let's just say that if I would have tossed my cookies, I would have been much better. Ick.
