I decided to go to the noon WOD today since I slept like crap and knew by 430 I would be facedown on the couch, not wanting to move. It was a huge class, since mostly everyone has off from work/school today. The energy was great, and everyone seemed very happy to have the day off. I love that a day off means still getting into crossfit, and going early, nonetheless. I love this community more than anything. Pr’d my 3rep max back squat, and added a whole TEN POUNDS to last week’s 4 sets of 3!
- Squat 3-3-3-3: 115-115-115-115. PR’s across the board! Last week I did my four sets of 3 at 105, and a bonus set at 110. Going into the WOD today, I couldn’t remember if I had done all sets at 105 or 110, so I just said screw it and went for 115. And I killed it!! The last rep of the last set was the hardest I’ve EVER fought for a lift in my life. My partner, Beth, (who is a total beast, by the way, and extremely motivating) was yelling at me to push my knees out and to get it up, and holy crap, I didn’t think I was going to budge! But I freaking GOT IT. I fought for it, and I freaking got it. I wanted all four sets so badly and I did it. So damn happy.
WOD for Total Cal/Reps: 89 Rx!!!
3 Rounds of:
- 1 Minute Row for Calories: Rx. 18-16-15
- 1 Minute Rest
- 1 Minute Thrusters for Reps: 45lbs, Rx. 16-12-12
- 1 Minute Rest
This was freaking terrrrrible, but so great! I partnered up with Beth for the WOD as well, and she convinced me to go as Rx with the 45lb bar. I definitely would have gone for the Level II at 35lbs if it wasn’t for her. She said “it’s going to feel awful either way,” which was very true, so I decided to just push up and go for maybe a few less reps per round with a higher weight. I am a little disappointed with my rowing, because usually when we do minute-long sprints with equal rest I’m able to stick to 17 or 16 calories each round, but I dipped down in the last round. I guess I just cooked my legs on the heavy thrusters! Also, new bag and shortssssss. Yayayayay! Also very happy to be consistently getting into the box again. I can’t wait for their new location to open only a mile down the road from where I live!
