1/30 – Jackson Hole, WY

No WOD.

 

4 hours of snowboarding…my feet do not want anything to do with this today.  They hurt.  So bad.  Weather is still amazing here and the riding is great, but I think 3 days in a row is my max….I hope I remember this next year.

I am happy to report that I think crossfit has really helped me with my snowboarding this year.  Normally I would be super sore after the first day of riding, but it’s day 4 and the only thing that is sore/hurts are my feet….yippy!!  🙂

1/24 @ 6pm – “Death By Pull-ups”

W/U
5 minutes DUs

Back Squat
5-5-5

Death By Pull-ups
With a running clock, do one pull-up the first minute, two pull-ups the second minute, three pull-ups the third minute….until you can no longer complete the required number of pull-ups in that minute.

Wendler (Day 1)
95 lbs. (5-5-15)

METCON:
7 rounds w/ 2 red bands

1/22 @ 11am

METCON:

5 Rounds:
5 Deadlift (275/185)
10 Pushup
30 Double Under

Time: 7:34 w/ 115 lb. DL

My DUs still need lots of work so I scaled to 15 instead and did single/double/single/double…. I did much better on the DUs than I ever have before. A bit more practice and I should be able to start doing them in the WODs.

Pretty sure I went too light on the DLs….

1/20 @ 0630

W/U

5 Minutes Double Unders

10 Rounds (on the minute)

2 Clean & Jerk

4 V Situps

4 Ring Dips

METCON:

You have 20 minutes to find a new 1RM Clean and Jerk

3 Rounds:
You have 2 minutes to complete 10 thrusters (135/95), followed by AMRAP toes to bar.
Rest 1 minute
Thruster weight should be challenging — go heavy. If you do all sets unbroken in 25 seconds, you’ve obviously scaled too light.
Your score is total reps TTB.

Clean & Jerk: 105 lbs.

METCON Score:  36 TTB w/55 lb. Thrusters

Double unders are never a good start for me since I can’t actually do them.  Today I did, however, get 5 in a row…which is still awful, but quite good for me.  These things are like a series of unfortunate events:  first my bra starts letting the ladies out, then my pants start falling down, then I end up whipping myself with the damn rope (which really really does NOT feel good!), and finally I end up catching the rope on my pony tail.  What an awful thing for others to have to witness.

I’m happy with my clean & jerk weight today because I think it’s a new PR for me.  I was pretty sure I could get clean the weight up, but was unsure of getting it over my head.  85 and 95 lbs were both fairly easy and went up no problem.  When I went up to 105, I failed initially and had to syke myself out by adding the weight in smaller increments.  I added 2.5’s on each side to get up to 100 and got that up without too much of a problem.  Then added 1.25’s to each side and got up to 102.5 and that was still ok….and then added another 1.25 to each side to get me up to 105.  Got it up there, but it was def my max for the day.  Just found it interesting that I couldn’t do it initially, but when I added in the lower increments, I was able to get there.  Let this be a lesson (to myself) that we get 20 minutes to “work up” to a new 1RM for a reason.  Duh.
