Daily Workouts


6pm Crossfit WOD
“Grace” Retest
30 clean-and-jerks 135/95
Score on 8/8/16: 5:57 RX
Score this time: 4:36 RX
Fridays are usually my rest day so I wasn’t initially planning on working out, but my gym decided to do the Grace retest on Friday, so I went.  I wanted to stick with doing Wendler on Saturday and didn’t want to make up Grace AND do Wendler then, so I did it Friday.  I was nervous going into the WOD, I didn’t know how much better I’d do.  I remember how heavy 95# felt last time and how destroyed my CNS felt. My goal was to just do better than last time, if even just by a second.  I did a few to warm up and then we started.  I started out pretty good, and I got 10 done and looked at the clock and wasn’t quite at the 2 minute mark yet, and thought okay, I can beat my last score.  Last time I used a weight belt during the WOD and couldn’t clean and jerk in one fluid motion for the whole workout, there were quite a few where I had to clean, reset and take a breath, and then jerk.  And there was also one I didn’t count last time because I didn’t press all the way out.  This time I didn’t have to reset after the clean for any of them.  When I got to 15 and saw I was only 2:30 in I was determined to beat my last score and felt much better than last time.  Then when I finished and yelled “Time!” and saw my score I was stoked, 1:21 better than last time! Much better than I thought I would do, especially since I was a little sore from Thursday. Incidentally, the next day, my facebook memories popped up with a video from 2 years ago where I was excited that 95# was my new 3-rep-max.  I just did 30 of them, with jerks! Sometimes it’s nice to see how far you’ve come.

Wendler was good. I don’t think I have ever deadlifted 185# more than 2x and I was able to do 5, so that felt good. Getting better at finding my balance on handstands, now just have to work on feeling brave enough to take more than a couple of steps.

Bike ride 
11.36 mile
This was fun, although husband took a spill.  My hamstrings started to hurt a little when we were going up on of the inclines.  The hills had me breathing hard, but it was still fun.  Bike rides always make me hungrier than crossfit.
