This week has been one of those weeks that I’m just grateful I survived and I managed to refrain from hurting anyone! Work was chaotic, home was a mess (still is), kids are full speed ahead with baseball and workouts were brutal but I made it through. So YAY for Friday. And if I still drank alcoholic beverages then I’d say HOORAY BEER! I still love saying it though.
Today’s WOD was a modest workout at first glance and as always an absolute beating by the end. The skill/strength was Backsquats at much lesser weight than we typically would do. It was just enough to feel like you got some work in but not so tough you think you might black out before you get the weight up. It was a good friday skill/strength. 5 @ 85lbs, 5 @ 90lbs, and 5 @ 95lbs
The MetCon was not a load off our shoulders though. 20 step ups on 20″ box (10 per leg) HOLDING a 35lb plate. The 35lbs isn’t super heavy but it’s awkward to hold and well awkward to hold. I thought I could hold it on my head but everytime I stepped up it would bounce just enough to repeatedly beat me and it hurt. So I stopped. Carrying it on the shoulder or with one arm was a no go for me as well. My only option was to hug it and hold on the best I could. I have bruises to show for it. The deficit deadlift wasn’t too heavy so that helped, just those darn step ups and the dumb plate! Hahah. Got a great workout and feeling good now that it’s all said and done.
Tomorrow is funday Saturday (free OPEN WOD) for anyone interested. And anyone who is participating in the CrossFit Games Open can get their burpees judged as well. I’m glad I’m done with WOD 1 although there is a small voice saying do it again… it’s a sick and twisted voice obviously but I think I’ll pass. I probably would only get a few more in OR maybe a few less. I’m good where I’m at for now since I’m just doing this to gauge where I am in the grand scheme of crazies such as myself! www.crossfitboom.com
It’s also a weekend where I’ll do my first Advocare co-hosting mixer party thingamajig. Send good thoughts my way please 🙂 We are kicking off a 24 day challenge. A great way to get a boost on weight loss. I hope to share with you the results for those who participate. So stay tuned for before and after pictures. If you’re interested in participating and your not local then just go here: https://www.advocare.com/110211817/Store/ItemDetail.aspx?itemCode=99038&id=A&flavor=1
Take measurements of yourself before you start and then also at the end of your 24 day journey. Keep notes of how you feel and what you weigh. Take a picture as well if you’re so inclined. Who knows there may be a prize (I have to work on that though). If you do order I don’t recommend the chocolate flavor in the meal replacement shakes. I LOVE chocolate and I do not love this particular chocolate. Berry and Vanilla are good.
Anyhow…. that’s it for today. It’s going to be a GO GO GO weekend with no stopping over here. I hope y’all enjoy your Saturday and Sunday. Smile, have fun, be GOOFY! Happy Friday!
