My workouts are much more consistent these days but other than work, nothing else is going on. I am just loving my love and living it well. I wish I had more to share though. Be sure to check out my YouTube channel as I will be uploading more videos soon. Right now I am working on a 100 day challenge to learn to kick up and HOLD a controlled static handstand. You can follow my progress on here and/or here. #giveit100
Here is a quick recap of my workouts since my last post. It is SO NICE to be back at Crossfit!
Tuesday, May 27, 2014 – REST DAY, still feeling Murph!
Wednesday, May 28, 2014 – Crossfit. WOD was 21-15-9-6-3 of deadlifts and T2B but my hands were still torn up from Murph, so I did deadlifts and GHD situps with a 10# med ball. Weight on the deadlifts was 155 and I finished in 14:37.
Thursday, May 29, 2014 – Crossfit. 12 minute AMRAP of 15 KB Swings, 15 Box Jumps, 40 foot crap walk – forward and back. I used 40# KB and 20 in box. Rounds completed: 4 + 35.
Friday, May 30, 2014 – Crossfit. Strength was Back Squat – my mobility still sucks but at least I am slowly seeing some improvements. 12 minute AMRAP of 5 S2OH (75#), 35 DU, 15 Wall Balls (20# ball). I completed 3 + 54.
Saturday, May 31, 2014 – Off.
Sunday, June 1, 2014 – Off.
Monday, June 2, 2014 – Crossfit. Strength was strict press and I worked up to 75#. WOD was for time but I don’t remember my time – oops! It was 400 m run, then 15 HSPU and 15 T2B, run 400 m, 10 HSPU and 10 T2B, run 400 m, 5 HSPU and 5 T2B. I did the HSPU on the box.
Tuesday, June 3, 2014 – Walked at lunch 1.76 miles. Crossfit. 20 minute AMRAP of 5 pull ups, 10 push ups, 15 squats. I completed 10 + 5 rounds.
Wednesday, June 4, 2014 – Crossfit. Skill work was box jumps and I worked on 24 inch box jumps. I can physically do it and did several but fear gets to me. I’m so scared to miss on every single jump! Knock on wood, but I have NEVER missed and hit my shin on a box like so many have and I NEVER want to. That probably makes me over cautious on the box though. We did EMOTM (every minute on the minute) of 8 box jumps per minute for 5 minutes. The WOD was a short one – 30 SDHP (sumo deadlift high pulls). I used 75# and finished at 2:05.
Thursday, June 5, 2014 – off.
Friday, June 6, 2014 – Crossfit. Skill work was double unders. WOD was 4 rounds for time of 5 pull ups, 10 thrusters (started with 65# but dropped to 55# after two rounds) and Russian twists (I used 20#). Time was 10:32.
Saturday, June 7, 2014 – off. Watched a Crossfit comp at TNL in Tampa.
Sunday, June 8, 2014 – off.
Monday, June 9, 2014 – Crossfit. Strength was deadlifts: 5 X 3 working up to a 3 rep max. Since I am still slowly getting back into this, I didn’t push it on weight. My 1RM is 265 but I know I am nowhere near getting back to that. I worked my way up to 215 x 3 as my final round.
And check out Chayet’s mom – 65 years old and she just got a new PR for her deadlift – 225 lbs!!! She is such an inspiration to me and everyone who knows her!
The WOD was a 12 minute AMRAP of 15 KB swings, 15 box jumps, 200 m run with a 20# sandbag. This was one of the workouts from the comp on Saturday – it sucked watching it and it really sucked doing it. I say that…but I still love to hate it. =) I used a 53# KB and 20 inch box.
I sort of dropped the ball with my updates. I will try to be better about it but life has just been too good lately and I’ve not taken the time to sit down and blog. Not that I don’t love my blog and documenting my progress – I truly do. But sometimes you have to just step away from the computer, put the phone down and not worry about getting a picture of every single thing and JUST LIVE! That is what I am trying to focus on – JUST LIVING! Sometimes I get too busy being a #powerfulhuman – try it sometime. It’s so empowering to live happy!
