Saturday was a rest day. The gym was closed because Craic had their holiday party the night before. Stopped in to the party on Friday night after a great dinner with Susie Diesel and Johnny D for a bit. Everyone was well on their way to a hangover when we arrived. Then I became violently ill and Susie and I headed back to their house. Not sure what caused it, but it wasn’t fun. #FridayNight
I’ve been promising my pal, Rico, that I’d drop-in to one of his classes at Crossfit Florian in Norwood. Susie agreed to join me so we went to their Sunday class – which was a partner WOD. It was teams of four – 200 thrusters and 200 pull-ups. If you dropped the bar on the floor 5 burpee penalty for each team member – even during the pull-ups. I knew I was going to do at least 50 reps of thrusters and thought it would be prudent to go light given my shoulder issues. We paired with Michelle and Noelle – two Florian members. Michelle also had shoulder issues and Noelle was brand-spanking new so we went with 45# (Rx was 65#). Broke it up into 10 reps each and switched off. Towards the end, Susie and I both did a set of 15 reps. 45# was definitely a little too light for us – but it was a good workout in that we just kept moving and our heart rate up. Did ring rows instead of pull-ups. We cruised through, finishing in 17:13. Went and had fun, which was the goal in the workout.
