Rise and Shine, BlogLand! Yep, it's 8am and I've already been to CrossFit and back, and gotten sweaty. Woo!
It was a little tricky convincing myself that I wanted to leave my bed at 6am this morning, but I imagine that I'll work into it. I hope. It is the only time I have, so I'm just going to have to!
That said, I dragged myself out the door and into my cold car (seriously, I think this year's splurge item may be a remote car starter, because there is really nothing I hate more than cold car in the morning.), and off to CF.
Today's WOD looked like this:
- 800m Ski (on the SkiErg Machine. SO fun.)
- 3 rounds of:
- 10 Burpees
- 10 KB Swings
- 10 Sit up
Workout (15min AMRAP):
- 1 Push Press (35#)/1 (jumping) pull-up
- 3 Push Press/ 3 jumping pull-up
- 5 Push Press/ 5 Jumping pull-up
For today, I used a relatively light 35# bar for my presses. It's way under what I could and probably should've used, but I had no idea how I would fair with a regular CF workout - this is the first full, non-teaching class that I've been too, so I erred on the side of caution a bit. After today, though, I can see that in a WOD like this, I probably could've easily put about 60# and been fine.
The result of today was 133 reps. Which is approximately 8 rounds and an unfinished 9. RAWR.
Feeling pretty good about that. Represented well in my class today. There's nothing like a bit of hard rock, some lifting and a few burpees to wake you up in the morning!
I'm not sure I'd ever choose to work out at that time of day, but I suppose it's not so bad. I do feel REAL awake now, to start the day, and I'll have plenty of time to get ready for work and not be rushed. There's always a positive side, right?
That said, I am now STARVING (Yogurt and nuts isn't cutting it!), so I must go feed myself something No-Bread friendly and begin the get-ready-for-work process.
I'm thinking I'm going to feel today's WOD in my back and shoulders tomorrow. HMM.
