This entry promises to be extremely boring.
Whatever, I just want to go shake hands with some cute single guy so he can then proceed to run away screaming from my scratchy scabby man hands. We weren’t compatible anyways. Don’t know what’s up with that flaky-skin though. My left hand actually looks a lot nicer than this one.
Anyways–the filthy 50 was yesterday.
50 Box jump, 24 inch box
50 Jumping pull-ups
50 Kettlebell swings, 1 pood
Walking Lunge, 50 steps
50 Knees to elbows
50 Push press, 45 pounds
50 Back extensions
50 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball <;–I started here & went in order.
50 Double unders
It was my first time doing it without being plagued by the wrath of double-unders. Yeah, it took me a couple of tries to get going, but once I did, I railed them all out in a minute or so. Last time I did that, it literally took me like 4 minutes. One at a time. It was horrible, but I was determined to RX the stupid thing. I knocked 3 minutes and 41 seconds off of my previous time–I finished it in 26 minutes and 1 second. Ha! I’ll take it. Toes to bar ate my breakfast. As did burpees. And I’m not a very fast box-jumper because I don’t trust my coordination skills enough, but it’s all good! I am making baby steps in the right direction.
Interesting fact: I think the 50 back extensions make me more sore than anything else. My glutes and hams are on fire today.
Other interesting fact: Writing this blog entry took me 20 minutes. I was hoping to kill more time…
Today is a rest day, but I did my usual 5-miler this morning with the girls. I call it “usual” but this was only my second week in a row–I used to go running religiously before I started crossfit. [Why does my spell check constantly underline crossfit?!? Oh, it allows “CrossFit”, apparently. ] I’m trying to run more so that I can try to obtain at least a little bit of endurance before my adventure race next month. I feel extremely unprepared for it… not gonna lie.
So I’m dumb and I held my phone the wrong way, but this video is funny 🙂
I get to dog-sit on my lunch breaks because mom is out of town for a couple of days.
Oh, and I almost forgot:
