Back at it

OK so yes I am back at it!
Last week was my 1st week back at the Fortress. I have to say Monday was WOW! I thought it was going to be hard, but not that hard! I am going to eat better so I can feel better :)
So here's the run down that started my disability (not really)

 was the start of my new year to a healthier me!
SWOD: Snatch Wars
At 50% of your 1RM
Do as many power snatches as possible in 7 min I did (I forget)
WOD: “Cindy”
Complete as many rounds in 20 minutes as you can of:
5 Pull-ups
10 Push-ups(no HR)
15 Squats
I completed 16-18 I forget I think I did pretty good
So the next morning I though I would be in more pain than I was, but I was not too bad until about 2pm. (the usual time it shows up) I bribed Julya to make sure she went and met me there on Monday, now on to Tuesday. 
To start I have to say Tina who is here in my blog somewhere is pregnant and still WODing. I saw her before class and she was doing Rx. I said to myself OMG if she can do it I better do it! It had been about 1 1/2 months since going to work out and I was hoping I could, but I could not Rx like her. I am completely amazed with her and her want to stay excercising for the duration of her pregnancy. She can do a squat Wall ball better than any other even with her belly. Ok moving on....
Warm up: 2 min jump rope, PVC warm ups for the WOD.
SWOD: Power clean x1, Front Squat x5
4 rounds
1st rd: 50% (35lbs)
2nd rd: 60%(45lbs)
3rd rd: 70% (55lbs)
4th rd: 80% (65
WOD: 5 rounds of 
  1. 10 Toes to bar (I did about 3 toes to bar the rest knees to elbow) 
  2. 10 Thrusters (Rx95/65) (I did 55lbs 1st rd, then 45lbs for the rest)
  3. 10 Wall Balls (20/14) (I did 14lbs)
Oh yeah I left there feeling beaten. Unable to attempt to do Rx for my Thrusters. I was staring at my fellow crossfitters thinking AGAIN?! OH YES AGAIN!!! :)

I wake up Wedneday feeling hurt and a little worse than the day before and I am thinking can I do it again? My arms were killing me and my thighs were a bit tender. We were told when we walked in to the Box that night start warming up on your own! It's going to be a long one! OMG when do they ever tell us to warm up on our own?? This is BAD! I read the Wall and OH BOY! Stretching was a killer I was so incredibly sore and well on to the WOD.

Warm Up: 
  1. 400 m row
  2. 21 of each: Push ups, Air Squats, and TTB

WOD: “Chip the chipper”
  1. 1000m row (400m if not Rx)
  2. 100 Air Squats
  3. 75 Push ups
  4. 50 KB swings (53/35) (I did 26lbs)
  5. 25 Burpees
  6. 50 KB Swings (53/35) (26lbs)
  7. 75 Push ups
  8. 100 Air Squats
  9. 1000m row (400m if not Rx)
At the end I just wanted to fall asleep right there on the floor. Several times I just planted my face on the ground. Yes even though it is FILTHY with sweat and crud from the bottom of everyones shoes. I was sure I would make it, but I did not want to give up! I pushed and pushed even though I was exhausted! I was determined! I did my push ups on my knees and my arms did not want to push me up anymore. The last set of pushups I think I did them one at a time. It seemed to last F O R E V E R. I am thankful I do this with a fantastic group of people who never let you give up and push you to keep going when you think there is no more in you! 

Thursday morning I was off from work, but I remember waking up and moaning out load. My right arm was in so much pain I could not even brush my teeth with my right hand cause I could not bend it. I thought I tore something, but that was just my muscles getting back into the swing of things. I did not leave the house and it was pretty pathetic. It was as if I started working out for the 1st time again. SO MUCH PAIN! WELCOME BACK to CROSSFIT! NO WIMPS HERE!
Picture to come again!

HERE I GO AGAIN! A new week and I will take it day by day. I am so glad to be back with the people who make me laugh. I love my Crossfit Fortress people!

Oh yes and my next race will be COLOR ME RAD!!! on February 2nd
