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. 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!

Not sure what squat thrusts are, but your workout sounds amazingly hard!
