Day #2 (second week) at CrossFit today. I’ve never been one to look at a WOD before hand because I don’t want to mentally psych myself out. I asked my friend Katelyn sent me the WOD once it was published. I told her that I wanted to see what it was so I could decide whether or not I was going to punk out! 😂
I will tell you one thing…in my 6-7 month hiatus…I still HATE squats! Yes…I said it!! You know the adage “Ask and you shall receive“? Most know (and if you don’t, now you do) that I do not like my legs. So, one would try to work hard on the body part they dislike, right? Like said squats, etc?? Mais no!!! I have to hate the very exercise(s) that would make me love my legs! Also, any WOD that starts with”21-…..” deserves my full freak out mode!
The strength part of the WOD I enjoyed because I like deadlifts. I managed to get my max at 195#. I’ll take that!
I had to modify the WOD today for a few reasons:
- Just starting back and really have no desire to die so early!
- If you think I hate squats, I doubly hate OHS! But seriously, I had to lower the weight because of my shoulder. I wasn’t sure how much my shoulder would take a lot of weight and squatting!
It had a 15 minute cap on time. Here’s how my WOD worked out:
- OHS : 15#
- Hang cleans : 55#
I have to say I was pretty happy with this time. I didn’t die, my shoulder held out very well (even with the small amount of weight), and I feel strong just being there and working my a** off! On the other hand…DOMS will set in and I will be walking like “The Duke” (aka John Wayne)!!
I’m happy to be back on this journey and I appreciate you reading and sharing it with me, 3M style! ❤️
