WOD 080224 EVA (800m run/70# KB Swings x30/Pull Ups x30) 5 rounds for time

Glad yesterday was a Rest day :kicking0: or this WOD would have been DNF for me.

I love running :run:

EVA (scaled x 5) = 44:28
800m run
18# KB Swings
10 Negative Ring Pull Ups + 20 Kip Jump Pull Ups (bar)

The first 3 sets of running was easy but the Pull Ups were draining my energy, so last 2 sets of 800m was slower than I normally could handle. Definitely felt a KIP :pepper: almost happening on the last 20 reps of jumping pullups.

CFWU x3 - feeling upper body fatigue after attempting ring dips today.

WOD 080226

400m Run
50 Squats
30 Back Extensions

As Rx'd = 23:39

Vastus Medialis & Laterals are feeling it and some tenderness on Left miniscus area?.....I'm questioning my pronation now...maybe shoes?!? Hoping for a Run Cert in Houston sometime....Houston is ready for The POSE.

Re: Grace's Log
Real fast, Grace. Keep it up.

I've got to get to a running cert sometime soon too. I'm a horrible runner. Always have been. Be sweet to meet half way! :o

Re: Grace's Log
WOD 080228

CFWU x3 (no dips - practice jumping/kip pullups)

7 Rounds for Time
95# SDHP x10
Ring Dips x10

scaled to 65# SDHP x10 (unbroken)
scaled to Jumping RING DIPS (set 1,2,3 & 4 - broken down to -5-5)
(set 5,6 & 7 - broken down to -2-2-2-2-2)

Felt good so squeezed in 7 sets of 5 reps of jumping NEGATIVE pull ups (psuedo overhand grip).

Re: Grace's Log
WOD 080229 Back Squats 3-3-3-3-3

Brought a stick to glob gym. Caught some attention like yesterday when I brought my Elite II rings! Oh, but forgot to wear CrossFit shirt today.

95 x3
115 x3
125 x3
135 x3
145 x3 (longer hold at bottom of each rep)
Thank goodness to spotter, a very good friend who is a good prospect for CF conversion. Pushed me from a deep squat HOLD --hold because I couldn't get my butt up--- :yikes: --- a little yelling would have been more fun.

Shoulders are pretty fried from yesterday's ring dips. So, no kip pull up practices today :(

Ok, I found a trainer who can teach my boot camp class on the 8th. :kicking0:
So, I will sign up now for the challenge....beginners level, I reckon.

Re: Grace's Log
Just weighed myself yesterday because of the required form for the CrossFit Central Challenge - CrossFit Total. I am down to 115# - didn't want to because I'm trying to bulk up my muscles. It was at 4pm so maybe dehydration. That would put me in the 52kg category; don't know if that's necessarily a good thing.

WOD Riverstone Neighborhood Park - sunny and warm

Truncated CFWU x2

Jumping Pullups 10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-8-2-8-2
Push Ups 20-20-10-10-10-7-3-5-5-5-5
Sit Ups anchored ankle & abmat 50-50
Squats 50-25-25


This WOD would have been excruciatingly difficult if I knew how to kip and did them instead. Push Ups with head up was extremely challenging as fatigue set in. Kippers have my utmost respect. :bowdown:

Originally set up Rings to practice more dips but after Angie I'm calling it quits. Have to walk home and cook lunch for family :stir:

Re: Grace's Log
