…but you show up to the gym with NO SHOES or SOCKS!!
That my fellow bloggers/readers is what you call an “EPIC FAIL“!! Now, I’ve been known to forget socks; that’s common. But shoes??? Never! Who forgets shoes?? It was more like I was bringing my “C” game!
Today has been my third week back to CrossFit. I miss my old box, but all of my old friends all go the box I’m currently at now. I’m happy to be back! I’m not as strong as I used to be but that’s why I’m back! With every day that I’m sore, I know that it was worth it the day (or two) before!
Strength- 6 x 2 Power Cleans
- 6 rounds of 2 reps to find 2 RM (rep max) of cleans. I got to 95#, which I think is pretty good considering my absence.
Metcon (Time) – 18 min time cap
- 3 rounds for time:
- 10 clean and jerk (65#)
- 40ft HS walk*
- 75 DU**
- 40ft HS walk*
*Substitued for 60sec handstand hold
**Substituted for 150 SU
My rep count: 2 rounds + 75 SU (i.e. DNF).
I honestly expected as much, but I wasn’t disappointed. I probably could’ve gone a little more on my weight, but I’m taking it cautiously and slowly. Old girl’s been away and I want to be kind to her! 😂
Tomorrow’s agenda will include a run after work! I am anxious to see how the strength training will improve my running again. I really took that for granted. This is the lesson I was trying to teach Julian when he was #onearmbandit. In my opinion, he really took his basketball playing/training for granted. Thinking because he has a little skill and talent, that he didn’t have to work hard. And when it was taken away, you really realize how much you miss and appreciate it. Now…it’s MY lesson. I really took the fact that I was strong for granted. I miss feeling that way, but I am enjoying the process back. I am READY to bring my “A” game (with shoes,too!)
Ever have moments like I had today?
Oh, look what came in the mail this weekend….
Happy Monday and thanks for reading! ❤️
