I’ll keep this short and sweet. This morning at the BOOM BOX it was like the title says, Box Jumps and Burpees!
Skill Strength involved MAX HEIGHT BOX JUMPS. If you’ve been following along you all know I FEAR the BOX JUMP and truly I have no idea why. But it’s a sad fact that my brain limits me in this part of the CrossFit World. I could only manage to over come 28 inches for my jump I know I can clear higher than that because I can jump right next to the 30 inch box and my feet have the clearance. it’s just the actual JUMPING on to the box that scares the living crapola out of me. It’s sad.
For the MetCon it was BURPEES, BURPEES and more BURPEES. We had 10 minutes to complete 50 burpees and when the 10 minutes was up we had another 10 minutes to do another 50 burpees. (Are you sick of seeing the word burpees yet?) I really wasn’t sure what my pace would be because well I sucked at the Games Open WOD 12.1. Only managing 74 in 7 minutes. Wasn’t feeling awesome about that then so I was only hoping for better than 5 minutes to do 50. I manged to knock out 50 in 3:40. I did stop and pause and take some rest between. Coach wasn’t too happy about that so for the second round I didn’t stop and I finished 2 seconds faster for a time of 3:38. So Coach wins “barely”. I preferred my slacker route. But it wasn’t the best time so whatever!!! 😛
Sugar Detox – Still Kickin’
Well yesterday was my last official day but we’ll see how the weekend fares. I think I can steer clear of most bad but oh so yummy things. I’ve been disciplined now for 24 1/2 days. Might as well keep going. 6lbs gone is mighty fine as well, so I don’t mind forgoing the sugars especially when I know I’m a recovering sugar junkie.
It’s a LONG weekend for me finally! I don’t get very many of those. If you’re local and want to check out the BOOM BOX on Monday we are having a 9am WOD. All of y’all are welcome! http://www.crossfitboom.com
If you see a man or woman who serves our country then please make sure and THANK THEM! I mean you should thank them daily but especially since it’s Memorial Day Weekend! I know it’s to honor the fallen, but honor those who still stand and proudly serve our country!
Happy Weekend. Happy Memorial Day!
