Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle

Our 1st foundations class at the affiliate consists of KB swings, Push Press, Wall Ball, Hanging K2E and OHS. We did that for a workout today...

15 KB swings (2 pood)
12 Push Press 95#
9 Wall Ball 20#
6 OHS 95#
3 Hanging K2E


Also. I have never rowed 500 m for time. I'm short so that's my excuse for not having a great time. Anyway - It was a freakin' nightmare...I just wanted to get under 1:40.

My time - 1:37.3

I'm okay with that....

In preparing for the Saturday grand opening at toledo crossfit I planned on doing a 5 on 2 off this week. Wanted to throw in an active rest day though. That was today.

Did the MCCF warmup...

then ran a 5 k on the treadmill at globo.

I can't believe I did this one day after 'Cindy'.

Okay. Nobody laugh. I did a very light deadlift workout because of my recent back issues. Just wanted to try to dial in my form and keep everything straight.

2 rest days in a row...then Toledo. I'll probably draw Cindy out of the hopper.

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle
Good luck in Toledo!

If you "paced" yourself and got 21+ rounds of Cindy, I don't think you'll have anything to worry about if it comes out of the Hopper.

Nice weighted dead hangs, too!

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle

So Carey and I went down to the grand opening of Rogue Toledo today. We had our 3rd team member cancel last minute so that kind of sucked. We got an alternate though so it was fine.

Here's the details.

Carey is strong...She's 5 foot nothing but busts her but. She's got a 17 round Cindy a sub 9 minute Fran Rx'd and a 21 minute Angie. She's getting the Oly lifts down pretty quickly and is coming along nicely in her strength work.

If she had a CrossFit nightmare though it would suredly involve wall balls..
What workout do you think she drew?? In true murphy's law/CrossFit style she drew 'karen'. when I told her she thought I was kidding and had to see it for herself. She did it in sub 9 minutes! (8:56 I think). A little note. If she would've drawn either of the other workouts she would've probably won as she can C&J 95 and only one other girl did grace Rx'd and none of the girls did the rowing helen workout as perscribed. The gals that beat her at wallball were monsters (in a good way).

Me on the other hand, I was hoping for Grace or maybe even Fran...Be careful what you wish for though...Actually I didn't get Grace but the times there were insane. Lot's of sub 2:30 times that would've probably beat me. Owell. So I drew 'Rowing Helen"

Rowing is a natural weakness for me because I'm short (5 7) but I sucked it up. Did it in 11:17. Came in 3rd to a couple of tall lanky guys. The winning time was 10:37 I think. Not too bad for a short dude I guess.

The team workout sucked...

240 squat jumps
180 box jumps
120 burpees
60 pullups

Our time was 13 something but that didn't matter. It was just for fun. The people down in toledo were great and the chili was fantastic.

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle
Glad you had a good time in Toledo.
I love going to events like that - meeting new people, doing CF WODs with them, and then having a good meal and some laughs afterward - just about beats everything else in the world!

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle

I looked at this workout and thought...No. Can't do that one. Then I though...Wait a minute. Why not give it a go!! Then...thought naa...Then thought. C'mon JD!!

Looks unbelievable on paper and thinking back to 6 mos ago wouldn't have even crossed my mind in my dreams to attempt this. Well. I gave it a go. And I gave myself a 30 minute time limit...

For time:
155 pound Power clean 15 reps
30 Ring dips
155 pound Power clean 12 reps
24 Ring dips
155 pound Power clean 9 reps
18 Ring dips
155 pound Power clean 6 reps
12 Ring dips
155 pound Power clean 3 reps
6 Ring dips

My time: 25:09 Rx'd.
Suprised even myself. Sometimes I'm amazed at what I'm able to do now. Not bragging...just saying. couldn't do a ring dip 3 months ago. Today I did..what - 90?

Good day. This last week I've felt like a true CrossFitter.
