It’s amazing how easy it is to get out of bed when you have no one else in your bed :/
Anyway, I went to Crossfit this morning, it was really hard, but fun!
12 mins to warm up and find
1RM Back Squat (I made it up to 135 lbs… it was really hard but I don’t think it was quite my 1RM, but for now I’ll take it!)
Then switch weight
2 min ME back squats @50% of 1RM (65 lb weight)
3 Rounds for time:
20 KB Swings American 24/16k (I used 12 kg)
20 KB SDHP (12 kg)
5 x ME (maximum effort) hanging L holds
The metcon was way harder than I expected! I’m much worse at running than I’d hoped to be. It was a good workout though!
Boyfriend is gone. He left this morning to drive to Virginia with his dad.
I keep thinking he’s going to come knocking on my door. But he’s not. He will come back and visit, and depending on whether I get selected for the marine corps marathon lottery I’ll see him then. Since he left the army and his family is in Virginia he decided to go back there. His main reason to move though was for a job that his friend is setting him up with, but now he was told that job might not be there. If that happens, I don’t know what will happen. He might come back, who knows.
But he’s gone right now. The future is unclear. I’m really sad.
24 on the 24th!
My boyfriend has been amazing to me and has built me a dresser my family and him got me, I went to Boulder and Denver yesterday and got cheesecake factory, it’s been awesome!
Like, so bad.
There’s this apartment that I reallyreallyreallyreally want, I’ve wanted it as long as I have known it’s existed (a couple of guys I’ve gone out with have lived in that complex, they don’t anymore).
It’s close to work, my gym, right next to a great park for running (even a dog park if I wanted a dog), and it’s right in my price range. It’s also close to the mountains AND the interstate which is awesome.
The problem? I live with my mother and sister and her daughter, and I don’t know if they can afford to live in the place we live in now without my money. My mom doesn’t work, my sister gets paid a little more than I do plus gets a nice chunk of money for child support. My mom is supposed to be getting social security starting any day now, which she is supposed to get a nice amount too, but I still feel bad about leaving them. I don’t know how to present things in such a way that my family won’t get pissed about me moving out. We’re Hispanic, we’re really close and whatnot. I just feel stuck. I want this place so bad. I don’t know what to do! But I need out. I’m almost 24, I need to grow up.
So a little bit about this Saturday’s WOD, it was a team WOD, right?
Yeah well, it was a “deck of cards” workout. In teams of 3. “Oh, teams of three, share the load!” Yeah..no. Everyone in the group had to do all the reps for every card. I can’t fully sit up because of my abs being so sore.
So I don’t remember which one meant which, but for the suits, each different one meant:
Box Plate Squats
Aces were 15, Kings were 13 reps, Queens 12, Jacks 11. 52 cards. I felt like death by the end. John and I passed out when we got home for several hours after that. I was teamed up with two of the most badass people in the class, Vanessa and Andy, the girl Vanessa is a BEAST. Oh my gosh. I think she’s military but still. So strong.
Then today, to add fuel to the fire or whatever, all of this hurt, we did:
10 min EMOM:
Even: 3 x Shoulder Press (I used 65 lbs)
Odd: 5 x Ring Row (Elevate feet or as deep as you can hold)
3 Sets of: Score= total rounds + rep (begin each round where you left off)
3 min AMRAP
30 Double Unders
10 HSPU (sub mats, box/bench, or DB Shoulder press)
1 min Rest
(I did 4 rounds)
Partner 3 way leg toss 3 x 15
The jump roping and the core stuff at the end, holy crap. So much soreness.
(and because my policies at work don’t say I can’t)
I am getting my eyebrow pierced. Tonight. EEP!
My family and boyfriend and friends are going to flip. But my body I do what I want..
5 Sets of 1 Power Clean + 1 Hang Squat Clean + 1 Front Squat (started with 55 then increased to 65 lbs, still working on my form)
3 Sets of 5 Heavy Clean Pulls (w/65 lbs)
(Open WOD 12.1)
7 min AMRAP
Burpees with 6” target
Core: this was so hard after the burpees!
Tabata forearm plank w/ side to side hip touches
