I forgot to mention this on Friday, we did “Crossfit total” as our WOD, which is finding your 1 rep max for back squat, shoulder press, and deadlift. I PR’ed all of them!
90# shoulder press
I am so proud of my deadlift, guys. Last time I tried for my 1RM was in February, it was 209#, that was like on my 1st month of Crossfit, now 5 and a half months later it’s 245. Also, I had done my 1RM for back squat like 2 weeks ago and it was 150, now I’m up to 160! So excited!
I forgot to post this last night, but yesterday at CrossFit I did box jumps with both the red and blue boxes! As a reference, the red box is 12 inches and the blue box is 8. When I started CrossFit I could only do box jumps with the red box, then last month I did them with two blues. At the wod when they were setting up, the coach was putting a bunch of random boxes together so people don’t have to get their own, and I was like, “but I need two blues!” My coach said,”too bad, we used them all” and I was like, “well, I guess I could try a blue and a red..” then I did the jump! I ended up using it in the wod. It was amazing! I was slow but did it!
Tl;dr: I did 20 inch box jumps for the first time!
Also, I’m surprisingly not hungover for the amount of alcohol I drank at my friend Stephen’s house last night. Last time I drank with him two weeks ago I was in bed all the following day. I did good! I’m happy because he keeps inviting me to hang out with his friends, I don’t have ANYONE who has been like that with me in.. a really really long time. It’s awesome having friends.
Oh.. and my (ex, current, I dunno) boyfriend John that moved away? He’s moving back here. Leaves D.C. today. Crazy!
I wasn’t even going to do it, but when one of the guys at the rack next to me, Johnathan #2, saw me giving up, he was like “come onnnnn try it!” and him and another guy offered to catch the bar in case i couldn’t do it.
But I did it!!!
I also (full) cleaned 86 pounds, might have been able to do a wee bit more but ran out of time.
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!
