Traveling WOD!!! I love traveling WODs, because I get to visit new gyms and meet new people.
If anyone ever told me that someday I’d say shit like ‘I love traveling to new gyms to work out while I’m on vacation, oh and I love meeting new people, YAY!’ I would’ve rolled my eyes and argued with them til we were no longer friends.
Yeah, well, now I enjoy doing that. Thanks CrossFit! So.. yes, Crossfit Connex is my mom’s home CF box, in Madison, WI. I had the pleasure of going in on Wednesday at 6:30a and working out. YES.. I got up at like, 5a and went to the gym, while I was on vacation. John was so sweet and even got up to make me coffee! Aawwww!!! I really have a hard time working out without coffee first, so this made my morning.
It was just myself and a newbie at Connex, Doug. (See?! New friends!! We’re already friends on FB, too!) Kief was there to cheer us on and keep us motivated, too. Talked us through the lifts, and really just kept us going. Thanks Kief, I appreciate that!
After an awesome warm up, we did a shitload of thrusters.
It was supposed to be the following:
20 min EMOM
even min do as many squat clean thrusters as possible
rest on the odd minutes.
I hate squat cleans, especially with weight that’s not so heavy (they really hurt my back after awhile)
so I opted to do 55lb thrusters instead.
I ended up getting 138 total thrusters in the 10 working minutes. Good stuff!
Thanks Emily and Kief at Connex, for having mee!! Always a pleasure.
