My time was slower than the past couple of times. I ate a whole bunch of ham before the WOD and it killed me. I thought I was going to get a sub 20 until the second round which made me debate a bucket.
I finally saw the movie Seven Pounds, it was really good. Will Smith was a spectacular character. Definitely heart touching and led me to reevaluate many aspects of my life.
This was a good post Christmas workout. I felt a lot better after doing Angie, I mean, after all that HAM I thought I was going to become a ham.
To be honest, I haven't posted in a couple of days because I could not, for the life of me, remember what my time for this WOD was. I'm so confused....
I'll post my official time later. I hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday. YAY, New Years is coming, and I do not have a resolution. Hmmm, why do people set New Years Resolutions? Maybe mine will be to be a better person and become more helpfull. I don't know....Hi twins, hope all is well!!!
HAhahAH HAhaha hahahH Ahahaha AHAahahahahaAha hahah hahahHAhahahahah ahahahahahHA h ahahahah Ahah haha hahahaha a hahaahhaahahahahaahha...lol
Todays WOD didn't float my boat. After that killer Eva, my shoulders and ass were on strike.
Back Squat 5-5-5-5-5
I didn't stick to a weight since I didn't take the time to find the right one. Oh well. I'm lazy...yeah, I didn't use the "it's Christmas Eve" excuse like a lot of people...straight up lazy and wasn't in the mood.
I have no idea what the video is about because my computer doesn't have sound, hopefully it is enjoyable. I wish Everyone a happy and safe Christmas. I better see all of you back at the gym...or else...I will put my bloody hands all over you!!!
Five rounds for time of, 800m run 30 kettlebell swings 53# 30 Pull ups
My overall time was 01:08:06
She was a doozy and even though I have the slowest time for this workout on the board, I'm proud...because I finished it. It was funny too, I walked in and grabbed a 53# to try it and it felt heavy so I tried the 40 and it felt heavy so I grabbed what I thought was a 35 and gave it a go and it felt really heavy. Not wanting to go to 25 as usual (defeating the purpose of the workout) I settles for the "35". However on my second round Danny walks by and says "Wow girl, you're doing 53#". Correcting him, I told him it was 35, but I checked anyway, and to my dislexic astonishment it was a 53...like I said...I finished....
Well, I have concluded that my time was indeterminable because someone *cough cough* stopped my timer *cough Chong cough*. It was estimated to be around 31 minutes or so, but I wont count it. Therefore today's WOD was mearly...a WOD.
In other news Maria broke the pull up bars...yes, all 80 pounds of her destroyed a bar that 200 pound men have been swinging on for the past three years. Girl...you are not FAT...you just need to stop doing CrossFit, you are way too strong now...go eat some cookies.
Hey twins, thank you for the Starbuck gift cards, I will use them wisely and tactfully...no more stumbling into Sunday morning WODs like a zombie, I thank you. Have the best Christmas ever, and good luck with the in laws!!!
Boy oh boy does Freddy have a surprise waiting for him tomorrow when he gets to the gym....Gnome love...the secrets of Gaymacho....
I finally got something going for me, yay!!! I don't think it's so much the shoulder strength. but I was able to get under that bar! I feel hyped about hitting my new PR!!! Also, note for the future, I should have added the 1.1's after I failed the 150 and tried for 147.2, that's something I need to focus on, taking baby steps.
Poor guy A man escapes from prison where he has been for 15 years. He breaks into a house to look for money and guns and finds a young couple in bed.
He orders the guy out of bed and ties him to a chair, while tying the girl to the bed he gets on top of her, kisses her neck, then gets up and goes into the bathroom. While he's in there, the husband tells his wife:
"Listen, this guy's an escaped convict, look at his clothes! He probably spent lots of time in jail and hasn't seen a woman in years. I saw how he kissed your neck." If he wants sex, don't resist, don't complain, do whatever he tells you. Satisfy him no matter how much he nauseates you. This guy is probably very dangerous. If he gets angry, he'll kill us. Be strong, honey. I love you."
To which his wife responds: "He wasn't kissing my neck. He wwas whispering in my ear. He told me he was gay, thought you were cute, and asked me if we had any vaseline. I told him it was in the bathroom. Be strong honey. I love you too!!"
I was able to complete 4 rounds and 1 run. After the WOD Cheryl walks up to me and says, you know its easier if you reverse your grip. I tried it and surely enough it was A LOT better. Oh well. Next time.
A Really Bad Day There was this guy at a bar, just looking at his drink. He stays like that for half of an hour.
Then, this big trouble-making truck driver steps next to him, takes the drink from the guy, and just drinks it all down. The poor man starts crying. The truck driver says, "Come on man, I was just joking. Here, I'll buy you another drink. I just can't stand to see a man cry."
"No, it's not that. This day is the worst of my life. First, I fall asleep, and I go late to my office. My boss, outrageous, fires me. When I leave the building, to my car, I found out it was stolen. The police said that they can do nothing. I get a cab to return home, and when I leave it, I remember I left my wallet and credit cards there. The cab driver just drives away."
"I go home, and when I get there, I find my wife in bed with the gardener. I leave home, and come to this bar. And just when I was thinking about putting an end to my life, you show up and drink my poison."
Here are some other people having a bad day or something like that...
Five rounds for time of: 145 pound Deadlift, 5 reps 10 Burpees
My overall time was 00:06:41
I'm happy about dropping the weight. Just Friday when I did the WOD with deadlifts at only 135#, my back was wrecked. Yet today with the low rep scheme and lighter weight my back feels fine. A big thanks to Cheryl for "yelling" at me to workout harder. I actually liked this workout. It will be interesting to see the improvements I make with it.
My overall time was 00:28:03? (Have to check the board)
Box jumps always get the best of me. I mean, I am always jumping on things, but when it comes to boxes for time, I die! And deadlifts, they kill me too, and just so I can complain some more, pull ups hurt in the cold. Thank you Alena for making me finish that blasted workout. 20 box jumps in I was ready to throw in the white towel.
I'm just proud I did it, and got a sub 30. I was pretty confident 20 box jumps in that if I finished it, it would take a very long time.
3 rounds for time of: 50 Squats 10 Muscle-up transitions 75 pound Hang power cleans, 10 reps
My overall time was 00:20:28
A big thanks to Jolie Gentry for getting my ass closer to doing an actual muscle up. The transition is a big help. I definitely need to work on my dip strength so that I can really get up there. I hope to work out with Jolie around more, she really knows her stuff, and she's great for inspiration. (My role Model).
Hey twin bots, it was great seeing you girls today, keep comin in or else!!! And Cheryl, I can't wait to go on another ride along!!!
Today was one of those days where I just felt blah, yesterday was even worse (notice the lack of postage), I think its the weather change. Ever since it got cold I just have trouble getting motivated. On top of that I am coming down with a cold. DAMMIT!!!
Clean and Jerk 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 looked something like this,
Then later on in the evening I did Annie,
Double unders and abmat Situps 50,40,30,20,10
My overall time was 00:08:10
Hey twin bots I miss you, and that goes for you Cheryl too!!! It's so lonely without you there picking on me! Compliments to Maria for the Photo!!!
Muahahahahhaha, I slay you!!! Feel the wrath of my SWORD!!!! Anyways, today was just another Sunday. I finally started helping out with the class, mostly cracking down on peoples technique during the WOD. Med ball cleans are difficult.
The after my attempt at coaching I did the dot come with the coolest people ever, Chris, Cheryl, Kirk, Will, and Shannon timed us all, it was AWESOME. And when I say awesome, I mean awful. Like, PAINFUL. But it was so much fun!
Complete as many rounds in twenty minutes as you can of: 15 Pull-ups 15 Ring push-ups 15 Back Extensions 15 GHD Sit-ups
I manages 5 rounds and 5 push ups.
I finally met up with Bel, so the good times have really started to roll!! Tis the season!
I'm ready to hit the slopes!!! I think it would be great if we got a whole bunch of OneWorlders and other people from CrossFit gyms to bring their families and hit the slopes I think we would all be in for a great time! Doug, I remember you said you and Bel want to, and Will is down, so lets make it happen when the snow starts to fall. We can make it into a nice big chill event.
I did Fran again today,
For time, 21-15-9 of Thrusters and Pull-ups.
I had a horrible overall time today, 00:07:32
I feel unsatisfied with myself so I will probably do something on the rest day.
So whose all down for boarding, skiing and snowball fights?
I was ready to work out today and I really need to lately. I'm still recovering from the Thanksgiving blues like so many others. Meaning all those left overs I have been eating have taken their toll and the only way to feel human again is to work out. By the way, I have been missing a few people lately, twins *cough* where the heck have you been?
Well Today I did Michael... Complete three rounds for time of:
50 back extensions
My time was 00:23:53
Not so sure if that's a PR but I don't care, I ran like shit today and it took way too long to reach the 800m in a desirable time, I'm telling you, its the Thanksgiving blues, how do I know, because I feel so blue.
My boys to the left!!! Well yesterday I attempted the .com workout with the shoulder presses but I just wasn't in it.
Shoulder Press 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 reps
It looked something like this 80-84(f)-82.2(f)-82.2(f)-82.2(f)-80-81.1
Everyone was picking on me on the last round because I had 1.1's on each side and I took one off leaving it uneven and I got it. I guess this just means that I need to work on my presses, which means I have a lot of things to work on.
Today was the infamous Fran. You should have been there when Cheryl found out about Fran, she got sick to her stomach and the dread was emanating from her like heat from an oven. Chris was dreading too, can't wait to find out how those two studs did.
Three rounds, 21-15- and 9 reps, for time of: 65 pound Thruster Pull-ups
My overall time was 00:07:18
My new PR. Hopefully next time I will get a sub 7. This time I remembered to breathe so I didn't get that terrible burn in my veins like the last couple times. Woot!!!
CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide. Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
I am a CrossFitter Bay area born and raised and currently training at Hercules Crossfit with the "Fun Crowd". I recieved my CrossFit level I Cert in November of 2008, and I am currently the recptionist at One World. I aspire to be a successful trainer and maybe one day join the CrossFit HQ team so that I can travel the world and help people explore this masochistic method of fitness. I am attending Cal State East Bay in hopes of getting a degree in Marine Science and outside of that becoming a Master Diver.
