I have passed my 6 month mark of doing Crossfit, and I feel pretty good about that. I am pleased with my progress, most of the time, while the rest of the time I’m bummed that I can’t just do more already! I know as I continue to lose weight, that certain things I have trouble with will be easier, but damn it, I’m not a patient person sometimes. Well, most of the time I’m not.
Today was a good workout. I was happy we were doing it, and I was ready to get back into it after giving myself a 3 day rest period. It was wonderful… (the workout and the 3 days’ rest.)
Today we worked on squat cleans. I am all mental on this, and can’t get past that 135lb mark. I know I’ll get stronger and better at it, and I know it’s mostly form that’s holding me back, but hell if I wasn’t on the verge of tears today because I feel so damn defeated by not surpassing that number. Oh well, right? I’d like to hit 145 next time I try it.
Our workout was the following:
10 min EMOM
2 squat cleans at 85%. That should’ve been about 115lbs but I opted to save myself and just do 85lbs.
remainder of minute you do lateral burpees.
Score for me was 48. Meaning, I did 2 squat cleans every minute and filled up the rest of the time with burpees, totaling 48 burpees and 10 squat cleans. Doesn’t sound like much but burpees wear you out!
