Recap time! I’m sorry, I have a hard time keeping up daily with blog posts, please forgive me! So here’s a bunch of CrossFit stuff for y’all!
Monday 11am class: I was super excited to see included DEADLIFTS in the strength portion, I feel like I miss a lot of the deadlift days. Today was a deficit deadlift; standing on 45# plates (5×5). I started out light, to warm up…and moved up to 225#. I was very happy about that…felt good, and felt strong.
20 WB (20/15)
15 burpees (as fast as possible. No rest)
Rest 1min between rounds
My score: 9:58 Rx
Ohhh, wall balls & burpees, my two favorite things (not). The rest was very nice, but going (literally) balls-to-the-walls for each round was a lung burner…and leg, and arm burner. Chris and I did this one together, and I snuck ahead of him the last round. We weren’t really racing (yeah, right)! Haha! BOOM! Beat ya!
TUESDAY 5:00pm class. Strength: C&J from position 2. Work your way up to a heavy 3RM. 110# was where I felt like it was my max. I felt much better about that weight…from position 2. 120# has been my 1RM for my C&J (from the ground), so I think I’ll have a new PR soon! YEAH!
TUES (2/18/14) WOD:
10 C& PUSH Jerk (125/85)
My Score: 2 + 43 Rx
This suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucked! After the double unders and T2B my forearms were smoked. I felt like I could barely grip the barbell. Ugh. And, I kept getting caught up in the rope, it was just not my day. I still felt like I got a great workout…but WOW! I just wanted to fall over after that one.
(today)WEDNESDAY 5:30am class. I think I’m starting to like the 5:30am class. I don’t know that I’d want to do it ALLLLL the time…but it’s a good change. Strength:15 minutes Back Squat 3×5 @ 70% 1RM. My 1RM back squat is 225#, so 70% of that is 157.5# oops…I went up to 165#. I just realized that now. I hardly do math in my head normally, and then to ask me to do it at 5:30am….nope, not happening.
Wed (2/19/14) WOD:
Front Squat (115/75)
My score: 9:41 Rx
This was okay until about the 7’s…I did all push jerks for my S2OH (shoulders to overhead). I thought about doing split jerks, but I figured that would take more time. SO, yeah, this was a good one. I enjoyed it actually…but for some reason my feet hurt afterward. The Nano’s don’t seem to have much support, I wonder if it’s okay to put inserts into them…if it affects the lifting performance at all…anyone know???
IT’S A HAPPY WEEK SO FAR!!! We also have 10 days left of this Paleo/Zone challenge. AND I can honestly say, I’m ready for it to be over. I will continue to eat paleo…but in my opinon: zone is for the birds! I am not one to count, or measure everything…and I know that I was successful when I followed paleo, so I will use what I learned, and what (we) cooked, and continue on with that…just not as strict on the measuring blocks and what-not.
I’ll be interested to see my before and after pics and take measurements! STAY TUNED….and stay classy!
(It’s a balmy 43 degrees here in Wisconsin…snow is melting, sun is shining…people are HAPPY! And all is well in the world!

wall balls and burpees are a crazy combo! good luck finishing up. i had a hard time with super strict paleo, but i’m curious about zone!
Zone is kind of easier to figure out measurement-wise, but it allows so much more than paleo. (Cheese, alcohol, breads)…
I’d rather find things that I like to eat, and not have to measure them. But I also think BLOCK-STYLE eating gets me more in-tune with how much food my body requires to move BIG WEIGHTS.
Damn girl…you are the RX queen! Keep rocking it sister!
