24 Not 30

My arms are still sore from Tuesday and my legs are feeling Wednesday. Quick one today with Dad stopping by to help out. Did some wrist warm-up and bear hug openers (not sure what to call what I was doing)

When I wrote this I was thinking 24 minutes but wrote it for 30. Before the first round was over I was 95% sure I was going to call it after four rounds. This was really hard and five would have been overkill.

Step-up Variations

Sweating bullets watching the Masters leaderboard. It’s going to be down to the wire to see if I can hold a spot in the top 10% (according to CrossFit’s ranking). Out in the garage at 4pm and it’s a nice day so we left the door open.

After one time through I went to quick singles on the bar. Did 3+6 and 3+5, so YAY for consistency. This workout was much worse than I expected.

Watching

Rested yesterday, while watching my nieces for the night. It was nice to have the day off exercise after 21.3 and 21.43. Out in the garage by 2pm I think.

40:00 AMRAP – Partner

  • 30 H2H KBS (53#)
  • 16 cal BikeErg (standing)
  • 30 Big Hollow Flutter Kicks (20# KB OH)
  • 30 alt Side Crunches
  • 80 Jump Rope (singles)
  • 12 cal SkiErg

Worked out with B, each doing the assigned reps per movement (she had some differences in calories). She started and we both got through 5 rounds plus she got two swings. This was a good one to just move. Will be taking it on the easier side to recover from the three weeks of the Open.

Watching the leaderboard to see if I stay in the top 10%. Looking good right now.

Twice Russian

Busy day with my new mattress and frame getting delivered, selling my old frame, and moving the mattress to a spare room. Not to mention hauling a bunch of wood to the basement and tearing up cardboard from the delivery boxes. Still got in a quick workout at 4pm.

  • 10 PVC Sit-ups
  • 20 Russian KBS (53#)
  • 150m TrueForm Run

It was supposed to only be 5 rounds of 100m and 12 swings, but I screwed up looking at the time instead of the distance in round 1. So I called an audible to make the workout longer and then decided to repeat the short run at the end. Finished in 6:04.

5×3 More

Later start at 11 this morning so I could work on a project in the basement.

Thrilled with that since about a month ago I did an EMOM of 3, using 185 for five rounds and 195 for five rounds. So this was an extra 5x3x185 in the same amount of time!

With Brandi, doing a round of the couplet while the other person rested. She went first and it took us 13:42 for the first couplet and a total of 25:38 or 11:56 for the second couplet. The first one was much worse, with the step overs really adding up.
