I’m in the habit of posting a day behind now, sorry about that! This is for yesterday’s crossfit.. yesterday being Wednesday.
I feel like SUCH a beginner at Total Control, like I’m doing this all over from scratch, but.. I’m not! I kinda know what I’m doing, and I rarely need help, and I usually maintain a time that’s really not too far off from others’ times.. and that to me is a great accomplishment in and of itself. BUT I think it’s because I’m walking in to a new ‘family’, that I’m still feeling like the outsider, even though I jump right in and get shit done.
Our training yesterday was Deadlifts.. Now, my 1 rep max for DLs is 225 lbs. I worked with Martha, and I got her to up her DL weight, but because her 1RM was lower than mine, we didn’t have time at the end to increase mine at all, so I’m kind of kicking myself for it. But that’s alright, because I managed to get 2 reps in at 225, so that’s an improvement, no? Next time, I will get more weight on that bar!
Our WOD was as follows:
2 rope climbs (hah, I can’t do this, so I lowered myself to the floor and pulled myself back up 6 times each way instead. My arms are so sore today!)
10 KB swings (35 lbs)
10 wall balls (16 lbs)
I did it!! I finished! I finished in 22:47 or something (the 3rd digit isn’t legible, and I can’t tell what it says.. so it could be 27, or 37.. but I don’t remember exactly.)
And my time really isn’t that much more than others.. there are other people who did it in 22, 23 min.. there are a LOT more who finished in the 17-18-19-20 min range though, and that’s what I need to strive for. I walk out of there feeling accomplished, but I still have a LONG ways to go..
