The day after my Mommy’s birthday, we were still in Traverse City and at the suggestion of my friend, Kyle, I decided to check out Traverse City’s finest Crossfit facility! It was awesomely brutal. I even got up a little early to make sure my pot of coffee brewed properly, or I would’ve been in BIG trouble.. The box was about 20 min away from where we were staying, so I also wanted to make sure I could find the place, and to allow ample “freak out cause I dont know where I’m going” time.
The place itself is inside an old elementary school, which I thought was kinda badass. They’ve converted about have the old school into various offices and rooms for all their equipment. Never seen anything like it, really! There were so many out of towners who showed up, that we ended up doing the entire WOD and warm up outside. This usually means it’s going to be worse than normal. 😀 I think there were around 30 people total, and only around 5 or 6 were residents.
We ended up doing 400m sandbag carries, and OHS. 5 rounds of them!!
I think the rep count was 15 OHS, of which I did 65lbs for, and then the 400m run, with a 30lb sandbag.
I ended up finishing in 33 min, I believe? It wasn’t pretty. I only really ran for the first 400m with my sandbag. The rest was a brisk walk/jog thing. The sandbags they used were really bumpy, and not the smooth, fine sand I’m used to at CFTC. No biggie! The bags had a shit ton of handles, so you could grab them anywhere, it was just a matter of getting comfy with it. Good stuff. Thanks guys, for letting me drop in!! I’d definitely recommend this place. 🙂
