Ouch and Ouch

Yesterday's WOD was very trying. I am still ridiculously sore from Monday and Tuesday (mostly Monday) so yesterday was a real challenge.

Wednesday, 18 November


800m Run
50 Push Press 95/65lbs
50 Burpees
50 KB Swings
800m Run
50 Hang Power Cleans 135/95lbs
50 Ring Dips
50 Pull-Ups
800m Run

The runs were pathetic. I pretty much just hobbled the first 2 because my shin-splints were talking to me. Mostly they were saying "Please stop! We'll do anything!" and then they whimpered a little. The last run was alright. I used 65lbs for both the Push Press and the Hang Power Cleans, 30lbs for the KB Swings, the box for Ring Dips, and Ol' Blue for Pull-Ups. The Burpees weren't so bad except my shoulders were so sore it took me quite awhile to bang out 50 of them. The WOD quickly became "For Completion" instead of "For Time" I finished in 50 minutes and some seconds, which I don't remember. I would like to try this one again when I am not so sore.

In other news: Jason! When are you coming back!?!?! We miss you and your ridiculous Frog Hops (ok, we don't miss your Frog Hops). You should come back soon.

All The Way Down

The last few days at CrossFit have been trying, as per usual.

Tuesday, 17 November

WOD: Strength plus Anita

ME Dead Lift

WOD: Anita


Box Jumps
400m Run between rounds

The Dead Lift has a rep and weight progression that I can't remember but my 5 rep max was 175lbs. I could have probably done more but the last time I tried to do too much I wrenched my back and was sore for weeks. 175 was ok for today.

Anita went all right. I used the 24 in box (I think) for all of the Box Jumps. Sit-Ups were fine, and the run actually went well. I don't know the time. It was around 30 minutes I suspect.

Monday, 16 November

WOD: All the Way Down, All the Way Up.

3 Rounds:

25 Push-Ups
15 Thrusters 95/65lbs
25 Push-Ups
15 Pull-Ups
25 Push-Ups
30 Squats
25 Push-Ups
1 Net Climb

For this I did modified Push-Ups. because for those of you who are slow on the uptake, there are a total of 300 Push-Ups included in the WOD. Ok, so I did the first 25 as true Push-Ups, but after that, my wrists couldn't handle any more. I used 65lbs for the Thrusters and Ol' Blue for the Pull-Ups. The Squats and Net Climb were fine. I finished in 34:44. I like this one.
