The Right Order: Massage First, CrossFit Second

WOD:  Heavy Fran

21-15 – 9 (15 Min Cap)
Thrusters (135/95)
Pull-ups

Rest 3 Minutes

5 Rounds of

OTM1: 3 Reps Back Squat (light/medium)
OTM2: 20 DU’S or 10 Box Jumps (24/20)

Two and a half hours before class, I enjoyed a relaxing full body massage. Lying on the massage table as the therapist stoked my fatigued muscles, I wondered if I would make it back to LivingWell for the 5:30 CrossFit class. I adore the place! Small and intimate, friendly, professional, and staffed with all the right services to meet an athlete’s needs.

I left LivingWell at 4 p.m. Although my day started with less than five hours of sleep, I returned for the 5:30 p.m. class feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. The massage did wonders for my body.

Thrusters are not at the top of my favorite list, but today, I kicked them out with 55 pounds.  I did thrusters last week with the same amount of weight, but my form today was better.

Form first… weight second…that’s my rule!

I completed my five rounds of back squats with 95 pounds.  My friend T. said that the weight was light and I could do more. LOL!  Next time my friend, I’ll push harder.

The class was packed but, true to form, the group was fun and encouraging.  Am so glad I made it tonight.  Awesome!

Sweet dreams!

    • No you’re not the only one. Though it took me some time to make the connection, now I take full advantage of the “treat” regularly and I love every minute of it. Thanks for visiting! 🙂
