The CrossFit games are going on strong and so am I.
I see that the 14.3 was a beast! While I am missing out on this round of the games, there will be others.
It has been nearly two weeks since completing my last WOD, so I was highly motivated to get to this morning’s class.
WOD: 5 Rds @ high effort:
Stronger… I definitely am! I did the thrusters at 55 pounds. There was a time, when the bar was the only option.
Not to get side-tracked, but speaking of options. The alternative to CrossFit this morning was a flapjack breakfast fundraiser at Applebee’s for B’Dazzle’s school. Now don’t get me wrong, I support my son’s school 200%, but clearly, I would have been down right miserable picking over a plate loaded up with scrambled eggs while visions of burpees danced in my head! Thankfully, hubby took him and his friend.
Anyhow, that’s the beauty of strength training and CrossFit. Maintaining consistency with a healthy nutrition plan will produce amazing results. Your physic, performance/strength, attitude, and confidence all increases. That’s better than any drug!
Five rounds of pull-ups, nets 50. 45 of my pull-ups were using a thin blue ban. So tell me why chicken-head, that’d be me, downgrade to a green band for the last 5 pull-ups? I’ll tell you why. I was tired, which is a BS excuse, but in retrospect, I got caught up in the time trap. Rarely does that happen to me, but it did today. I wanted to finish the WOD, so I slid over to the green band.
There is a solution though. Next time, I won’t bring a “just in case” second band. If I only have one on hand, no other option will exist and that’s what I’ll have to work with. Clearly if I can complete 45, 50 is a done deal. So what if it takes me longer! Next time! SMH!
Surprisingly, the temps were mild at 8 o’clock this morning, so I opted for the 250 meter run instead of the row. Any excuse to run!
Happy Saturday and enjoy the weekend!
