I'm so happy it is Friday, I don't even have the words! It has been more of a rough week at work, but I plowed through and it will be over soon. Plus, I'm only working out once today and that is over. AND...my Rangers are back! I haven't watched a baseball game since Sunday and it has been too weird. Hopefully my baseball boyfriend will be back too which makes it even better!!
So, CrossFit this morning was workout #9 for the week:
A. Back Squats - 20 reps. 20 is a lot of back squats to do unbroken, but I got through it at 110#.
B. Press - 5x5. 75#. This is a tough move because it is all arms and upper body. Unlike with a Push Press, you don't get any momentum from your legs. I did all but the very last rep on the last set. So I feel pretty good about it!!
C. 50 Double Unders (DU) - 5 Burpees (B) - 40 DU - 10 B - 30 DU - 15 B - 20 DU - 20 B - 10 DU - 25 B. If you can't do double unders, the scale was to be 3 single jumps for each DU. So instead of 150 total double unders, you would substitute 450 single jump ropes. I knew right away I was going to have to scale the hell out of this thing. I decided to just do single singles and squat thrusts instead of burpees. I accidently did 20 extra singles because I can't keep track, but in the end I did 150 single jumps and 75 squat thrusts in 10:36. I hate when I have to scale, but I know I was at maximum heart rate the whole time, so today it was the best I can do. That makes me feel good.
It shouldn't be a busy weekend which is nice. My BFF's birthday is coming up at the end of the month and I need to work on her present. I will post a picture when the time comes. I don't think she reads the blog, but I'm not taking any chances!!
Have a wonderful weekend!
