I hadn’t done Hero Holleyman since last year, and the last time I did it, I finished in 34:54. I did all the same weights, movements as last year, but THIS year.. I finished in 25:26. Over 9 minutes faster than last year, which was an incredibly awesome feeling! Holleyman is: 30 RFT5 wall balls…Details
I tweaked my lower back and the pain is coming from to the left of my spine, right above my tailbone. It’s not muscular, it’s more like nerve-ish pain. Just got back from the chiropractor who confirmed my suspicions. He said it was my L5 S1. Took some x-rays, gave me some good stretches, did…Details
I went in Sunday to work on my back squats. I NEEDED a PR! My last PR was 255, and this time I tried 275 (twice) and didn’t get low enough. I dropped the weight to 265 and nailed it. YEAH. Good enough for the board, good enough for me!
Next time we’ll get 275.
Friday was Grace. And if you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know that I just hit a Grace PR recently. And I was super excited about THAT! Well, here we are again.. Grace. 30 Clean and Jerks for time at 95lbs. I was nervous about just going 5 seconds faster, in all honesty! I really…Details
First time working out back at home! Woooo.
13 Minute AMRAP
5 – T-2000′s
10 – Plyo Pushups (45′s/25′s)
T-2000s suck. It’s a Chest to Bar pull up, followed by a Toes to Bar unbroken. They suck. I don’t ever want to do them again. 🙂
My last workout in Madison happened at 6a on Monday. It just seemed to be the only time that consistently worked for me when I was there, because I never knew what our days would have in store! We went to go see The House on the Rock later that day, and I can guarantee…Details
Still out of town, but that’s okay! I hit up Connex again for another great WOD. Em agreed to come workout with me if I showed up for the 6a class. OMG.. that meant waking up around 4:45a. Okay. Workout was great! I apparently impressed people with my weight skills. People at my gym are…Details
So I was visiting my Mom in Madison for the last week, but that didn’t stop me from working out! Her old gym (she doesn’t crossfit anymore, sad face) is called CrossFit Connex, and they are a fantastic box! They have always welcomed me with open arms and let me WOD whenever I’m in town.…Details
This WOD was like Fran on crack. I wasn’t planning on RXing anything, but after my pull ups victory on Saturday, I had to go in and try to RX this one! And I did. FUCK YES. WOD: 4 Minute AMRAP21 – Thrusters (95/65)21 – Pull ups2 Minute Rest 3 Minute AMRAP15 – Thrusters (95/65)15…Details
I say it’s a day I’ll never forget.. It’s the day I did more than 1 kipping pull up. Because it was the day after the 4th, everyone was smashed from the night before, except for literally a handful of people. Only about 10-15 people showed up to the Saturday WOD, which is unheard of,…Details
