Focus on the payoff

I tackled some really tough workouts at Crossfit this week.  Fortunately they were separated by a much needed rest day.


Floor Press


“Linda S”
3 rounds
Overhead walking lunge (M 45# / W 25#)
250m run

Time: 9:43 (subbed rowing for running, but used the RX weight)


Ladder drills


“Tom G”
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 Sumo deadlift high pull (M 95# / W 65#)
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Thrusters

Time: 10:06 with 45# bar

I’m exhausted after this one, even though I didn’t do it prescribed.  I had trouble keeping track of what number I was on.  I’m pretty sure I did them all, even though I ended up on the SDLHPs rather than the thrusters.  I probably did more reps than I should have.  Pregnancy head… I’m tellin’ ya.

Speaking of that — today is 30 weeks.  I can’t believe it’s only 2 1/2 months away.  I’ve been lost in thought lately about it… sometimes fearful of the pain and experience.  But today I decided I’m not going to be afraid anymore.  I’m just not.  It’s wasted energy.  I need all my energy.  I’m going to get through it and the payoff is going to be amazing — a baby girl!!!
