Today has been LOOOOOOOOONG. I woke up at 4:57am to take my dog 3.5hrs south of us to Chesapeake, VA to have her pre-op consult and surgery for her detached retina. Turns out, her retina has been detached for much longer than they suspected. She ended up not being a candidate for the surgery after all. I really appreciate the fact that the vet turned her down. It would have been so easy for him to demand they do the surgery, just to get the money from our pockets. We would never have known otherwise. I did learn that there is a great chance of this happening in her right eye as well, so I need to keep a very close watch over her vision and make sure nothing irregular comes up. Anyway, ate some Denny’s, loaded up on coffee, and headed home (it took 4hrs30mins to get back…ugh). Overall, 450+ miles in one day, sitting forrreevveeerrr. I was ready to work out, even though I was still pretty exhausted.
EMOTM for 10 Minutes of:
- 2 Thrusters: 65lbs. Felt…good? Strong? Very weird feeling. I expected them to be horrid. Haven’t done thrusters in a while, so this was really nice.
- 5 Toes-to-Bar: Rx. Eh. Worked on technique and making firm contact with the bar every rep. Still not to more than 2-3 strung together. I can’t flick my legs fast enough!
WOD for Time: 10:37
3 Rounds of:
- 10 Hang Squat Cleans: 70lbs, Level II-. Perfect weight for me. Just enough without being crushing. Still had to yell at the last couple of each round to get up. My legs are toast.
- 15 Burpees: Rx.
- 50 Double-Unders: Rx.
Perfect! Perfect WOD, perfect scaling, perfect everything. So great. Now I’m super crazy energized, had an awesome dinner of Atlantic Salmon, mashed sweet potatoes, and guac. Oh, and some spiced apple cider because fuck yeah fall. Time to round out the night with some climbing. I’m probably going to fail a LOT because..well..leg day Homework forever this weekend. I’m so glad I went to crossfit today. Best.
