Friday and Monday with a Holiday Party in Between

Wasn’t in the right head space to post on Friday after the Sandy Hook tragedy so I took the weekend off from posting. But reading this post on BuzzFeed made me feel a little better about the world.

Onto posting about the workouts.  Friday’s workout was:

5 rounds for reps with three minutes between rounds:

30 secs touch and go power cleans

30 secs burpee box jumps

I partnered with my friend Lauren.  She and I joke that combined, we are the perfect Crossfitter.  You can tell from Friday’s workout that that was exactly the case.  She’s is amazing at metcon and gymnastics and I lean towards to strength and sprinting workouts.  My scores broke down as follows:

Cleans / Burpee Step-Ups (ankle)

  1. 16/5
  2. 16/6
  3. 15/5
  4. 14/5
  5. 13/5

Total: 100

Lauren’s Score

  1. 17/6
  2. 14/7
  3. 13/6
  4. 13/6
  5. 13/6

Total: 101

We compliment each other well.  As you can see, I did a wee bit better on the cleans and she kicked ass on the burpees and we ended up getting close to the same exact score!  This one got hard for me at the end because my grip and forearms were toast – really wanted to get 20 each round, but that wasn’t in the cards that day.  I got to wear my new socks at Friday’s workout.  They made me happy 🙂

Hello Kitty socks FTW!

Today was a leg strength and pull-up workout.  I finally tried to do a workout that included multiple reps overhead!  The workout was:

A) 5 rounds -3min rest in between
5 Thrusters
rest 10s
20 walking lunges with DB’s

B)100 pullups for time

Worked out with my gal Kendyl again.  Point was to go up each round for both the thrusters and the walking lunges.  For the thrusters, I started out fairly light for me 45# and then went up in increments of 10#. I was just excited to do some overhead reps again! For the walking lunges, I’m still working on my core stability and my grip sucks on the dumbells, so I ended up failing halfway through my 4th round, but rebounded for the 5th round.  I also didn’t realize that the lunges were supposed to also go up in weight, so I started fairly heavy for my first round.  I ended up doing part A of the work out kind of wrong, but here’s what I ended up doing:

Thrusters / Lunges

  1. 45# / 26#
  2. 55# / 26#
  3. 65# / 35#
  4. 75# / 35# (tried 44# and 40# and failed with both)
  5. 85# / 44#

100 ring rows for time.  I think my time was 6:38.  I broke it up by doing 15 reps, then 10 reps, then the last 75 reps were broken into sets of 5.

The Craic Holiday party was this weekend at Susie Diesel and Johnny D’s house.  Great time all around – can’t believe how big Craic is.  The party was huge and a good time all around.

Me and Susie Diesel all gussied up!
