I’ll just be honest. It’s been a very bad week — starting about Saturday.
No need to go into specifics. The reasons are not important to the outside world, and I’m so super private about stuff like that anyway (believe it or not) that I would never in a million years write about them in a public forum. Let’s just leave it at bad.
Despite that, I did manage to keep up with my workouts this week. I’ll run through them quickly.
We planned a met-con, but it was raining outside, so we did an indoor strength workout instead.
One-legged squats 3-3-3 (assisted w/ band)
Overhead press 2-3-4 (25# DB)
Bent-over row 5-5-5 (25# DB
This was a Crossfit morning.
Burgener Warm-up (PVC pipe)
Hang Power Snatch (M 95# / W 65#)
Overhead Squat (M 95# / W 65#)
Here I am finishing up the move with the 45# bar. I almost grabbed a 35# bar. Glad I didn’t — didn’t need to.
Again, Zach called me out that the “preggo lady has the best form in the class.” It’s interesting that you can barely tell I’m pregnant in this photo.
I finished in 11:07.
Thursday’s at Crossfit have become part lifting and part met-con, and I love it.
My max is only 65 on the strict press, so I kept it fairly light, considering.
Pull ups (assisted w/ blue band)
Box Jumps (step ups for me from now on)
Row for calories
I finished last in my class, but it doesn’t bother me — got a great workout: 12:28.
Andy went to the free indoor workout at my gym, which sounded brutal, so I did a WOD on my own.
Double-unders or Tuck jumps
This was a quick one: 5:52.
I really like subbing knees-to-elbows for the sit ups, because it still works my abs, plus I get to work on my grip. I’m still no good at double-unders, so I tried those tuck jumps, which are really hard! Much harder than singles!
I should mention that before starting, I swam five laps at Northwest pool with the kickboard, which tired out my legs.
I also started working on deadhang pull ups. Inspired by the women’s class, I used a band to help me do 10. My plan is to keep at it every other day, lowering the thickness of the bend until I don’t need help at all. One day, I’m going to do an unassisted pull up!
