30WOD Day 39 / 30 Workouts – Do What You Hate

Tags:

In a kind of weird anti-celebration I decided that for my final day of WODs I would do something that I have avoided the whole 39 days. I read an article the other day entitled “How To Suck At Crossfit” and one of the things that I feel must be very common was the notion […]

Tags:

I finally did the thruster workout but if I am honest towards the end there it took a turn into front squats and presses but you do what you can, right? I took a day to see what my PR would look like for DL and cleans. I had previously cleaned 185 but the heaviest […]

30WOD Day 25 – Beastly

Tags:

Sometimes I look at the WOD and think, that’s 12 or 15 minutes, that’a a piece of cake. Today I got that notion slapped out of me. I took yesterday off in prep for my 2-5 am shift with the firewall last night so I will try yesterdays workout today. However, Ark is closed Sundays […]

30WOD Day 20 – Cardio Replacement

Tags:

I realized when I tried to sub my workout yesterday that I was replacing a cardio workout with a weight workout which was not smart. So instead of my planned handstands and stuff I went back to DVD and did a Tapout XT Muay Thai workout. It’s a pretty good cardio workout and if you […]

30WOD Day19 – Got Sleep, Got Gas

Tags:

I think it’s the milk again but I have been strangely boated the last few days without much of a change in my diet. I don’t usually drink a ton of milk but recently I have been indulging and I think I may not be tolerating it as well as I once did. I shall […]

30WOD Day 14 – DIY and Fitness. Build your gym.

Tags:

I felt like there were too many power snatches. I guess because it is a fairly new move for me I was a little disenchanted by having to to them twice in 4 days. Then again, I really need the practice apparently. Tuesday I was off work and I installed the new chinup bar (Fitness […]
