Sunday March 29, 2015

26F on the drive over to the shed 'o pain.

burpees, 65#thrusters, jumping pullups
8:20 (my only goal for this was to not sit down. I did not sit down!)

C&J practice (working on the new setup that helps the bar go more straight up and down on the first pull which means I don't get pulled forward so much)
5 for 5 at 65
5 for 5 at 95
4 for 4 at 125
1 for 1 at 145

Then I went and coached basketball.
Each kid shot 250 shots, which means I threw 500 passes.
I can barely lift my arms....

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
welcome back Helen....glad to see you took it easy :D

Friday nite at the box....grill 80 steaks for time to feed the open competitors and spectators...we are lucky to have the manager of a great grocery store belong to our box so he is able to donate way more than he should....

Saturday.....woke up tired from all the grilling so had to force myself off to the gym....

first up was 2 RM 20lb weight vest sitting on a 19" box max height bx jump...made it to a 28" box and realized my head was not into doing the complete rest of the workout

so.....I did a couple of things off my list that did not seem like they would require much thought as opposed to messing with bands and/or chains....

12 minute sandbag carry...(coach noted .... put down as few times as possible) the sucker up on the rail we use for putting the stones over, got under the bag and on shoulder and walked out to the road and realized that if I put this sucker down I would have to wait for someone to help me get it back up again so I sucked it up and walked for 12 minutes....weighted the sand bag when I got back to gym.....120lbs

2 x 80 blue in each hand standing abs

got home and did not move for a couple of hours......took dogs for walk and then a 2 hour nap.....went out with friends from box to our local brew pubs tap take over with 24 b.c. micro breweries home way to late

sunday.....good thing it rained as it made for an easy decision to not do much

Walked 2 miles

It's MUCH harder to squat after walking two miles than it is to squat without having first walked two miles...
