8-30-13 Workout Of The Day

SWOD: 8 Minutes to build to first set of the following:
 SDLHP 3, 3, 3 @ Med to heavy weight
WOD: For Time:
 20 Back Squats
 30 Chest 2 Bar Pull Ups
 40 Burpees

Spent!  Wiped Out!   Sore!  Today was day 5 of CrossFit for me.  Why? Because I could so I did.  LOL!  I contemplated not going today, but my friend Tee wanted to go.  We did the 8:30 a.m. class because I had back-to-school shopping to do. Nope! Not what you think. The shopping was for mommy dearest and I had a blast.

Let me back up for minute.  You must know by now that I live for an intense workout.  Since I return to my regular grind next week, I just had to get my last morning session in and that is the real reason why I pushed myself to go today.

My friend Tee pushes me to go harder.  While doing SDLHP (Sumo-Deadlift-High-Pull) I know.. .what the heck is that?  I said the same thing when I looked at the board.  While writing this post, I couldn’t remember what the acronym  meant, so I had to look it up.

Anyway, Tee pushed me on the SDLHP’s.  I thought my max was 55 pounds, but she pushed me to 77!  Do I feel it now?   Yeees!  Her new name is “Sarge” because she ORDERS me to put more weights on, she never asks my opinion.

This is why it helps to have a dedicated partner and friend to workout with.  I push her when we run, and she pushes me at CrossFit.  If you don’t have a partner, find one; it will make a huge difference in your daily routine, especially on the days when you don’t feel like working out.

Okay it is  late, I’m tired and must get some sleep.  It’s a holiday weekend and I plan to rest.

Enjoy your weekend!
