Um, what? November? What happened?! Where did October go?! Ahhh only 4 more weeks of classes before finals!! I am completely at a loss about how quickly this semester went!!!!! I’m so looking forward to winter and super cold weather and snow and sweaters and winter coats and knitted accessories and MORE SNOOOOOWWWW and Christmas and my birthday!! Okay okay. Back to actual workout stuff. I don’t think I’m going to be able to go to CrossFit on Mondays/Wednesdays next semester though, which is…pretty freaking terrible. I need to figure that out, because squats and clean and jerk days are my favorite days. Ugh. At least I’ll be able to start going on Thursdays for snatch days finally.
- Back Squats 5-5-5-5: 115-115-115-115. This is the first time in WEEKS that I’ve felt good about my squats across the board for all sets. I am SO glad I stuck here for one more week, and my confidence is back up about these. This was my second week at 115, and this week felt infinitelyyyy better than last week at 115, AND the previous week at 110. I feel a lot better going into next week, and the following weeks when we will drop down to sets of 3.
WOD for Reps: 130 Rx!
4 Rounds of:
- 1 Minute Row for Calories: 17-16-16-15
- 1 Minute Rest
- 1 Minute Burpees: 18-16-16-16
- 1 Minute Rest
This WOD is one of my least favorite. Either my hamstrings or glutes cramp up every single time.. We’ve done this WOD at least two other times, but both times that I could find were only 3 rounds for time. Looking back, I wrote about how awful it was. But I’m pretty damn happy with my performance this time. The other two times for 3 rounds I got 100, and 106. I was a little behind that on my third round this time, but I didn’t want to go balls-out right out of the gate and burn out. I still don’t understand how I used to row 18 cal minutes. I can’t even hit that once nowadays! I have gotten better with my pacing, so maybe that has something to do with it.
