Man, I tried SO HARD to get to do Memorial Day “Murph” yesterday. I didn’t know how I was going to manage that many pull-ups or push-ups, but I was damn willing to try somehow. I got on the road at 4:50 so I could get a good warm-up ahead of time, but unfortunately everyone on the island was trying to get back to the mainland to go home after the long weekend, and I sat less than a mile from our condo until 5:25. We had dinner reservations for 7:30, so I didn’t have time to stick it out and go to the 6:30. BAH. So I turned around in the middle of the road, drove back home (which took all of 2 minutes) and enjoyed the rest of the night.
Oh, before all of that, yesterday morning our condo association held a Bloody Mary contest, where you paid to enter and to “taste test”/judge, and all of the money collected would be matched and donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. So that was pretty great. I won second place, and would have won first if my dad hadn’t added half a bottle of vodka to my mix when I wasn’t looking. They were WAY too strong! I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day, and had a more successful “Murph” than I did!!
Okay, anyway, to today’s WOD!
- Back squat 3-3-3-3-3: 115-115-115-115-115. I backed off a little this week, because it just felt so damn heavy after not squatting heavy last week. I worked pretty hard on not leading up with my butt, and rising out of the hole at the bottom all at the same time.
WOD for Rounds+Reps: 8 Full Rounds.
15 Minute AMRAP of:
- 15 Plate Ground-to-Overhead: 15lbs.
- 10 Plate Overhead Squats: 15lbs.
- 5 Burpees onto Plate: Rx.
This was a ninja WOD. I knew it was going to be bad, but I didn’t know HOW bad. I was completely dripping with sweat by the end, and my hands didn’t stop shaking for an hour after!! Rx weight was 25lbs for females, but since I can’t fully lock out my left arm with that much weight overhead without my arm collapsing in, I went with 15lbs. The 15 was great though, my pace was consistent through the entire 15 minutes, and it left me completely worn out! Had a huge dinner at home, and now I’m ready to pass out. Looking to grab a few more WODs before I leave this weekend! I’m going to miss Crossfit Carteret!!!
