I swam yesterday. I really didn’t want to get out of bed and into the water, but once I was there, I got a solid workout. I like having swimming as a Sunday routine. I’m not sure what I am going to do next week prior to me leaving for Cologne. I might go to Craic on Saturday instead, as I will be out of CF world for most of the week while I’m in Germany. I’m very excited to visit Crossfit Cologne on Monday (8/13). Should be a fun time!
Today was 5×5 deadlifts at a pretty heavy weight. Rita (today’s coach) said that we should be pretty maxed out by the time we get to five. I did 1 round at 175# and 4 rounds at 185#. It was hard and I really need to work on opening up my hips at the top of the deadlift. And also avoid rounding out my back. I then hung around the gym for an hour to wait for the team training. I’m getting my certification as a judge for the Garage Games and I wanted to practice judging and counting and holding people to standards. Their workout was super difficult and I’m hoping to be that athlete next year. For now, I’ll judge and coach.
It’s the weekend I I want to relax. Short post today.
