I am *such* a fluffing softy, in a few ways. I’ve taken eons to write this post, because I’ve had the guiltiest pleasure of mindless TV on Netflix in the background – Freeform’s Young & Hungry. It’s so cheesy, asiago’s got nothing on this show. Alas, here I am getting all excited when Gabi & Josh get back together for the umpteenth time. I’m a 15 year old girl sometimes, I know.
ANYHOW, now that I’ve ruined all tough gal street cred with that admission, I’m also a softy because I work out… sometimes. Not a lot. But, sometimes. I’m fluffy.
14 Power Snatches 55lbs
12 Burpees Over Bar
10 Box Jumps
Rest 3 minutes
Every once in a while, I’ll see a CrossFit athlete post a WOD on instagram and bookmark it for Open Gym when I’m at a complete loss for what to do with myself. Colleen Fotsch posted this one last month, and aside from scaling the snatches from 75 to 55lbs in the name of barbell cycling, did it as written. Spicy! This chipper took me something like 40 minutes to complete.
Strict Shoulder Press 10×1 @ 90-95% – 75lbs
9 Toes to Bar
12 Shoulder to Overhead 75lbs
15 Box Jumps
Result: 6 Rounds + 6 T2B
The T2B felt like a million bucks, hooray! Was able to kid together at least 5 in each round before resorting to dead hang doubles. Also stoked that earlier in the class I didn’t fail any strict presses. I suck at those.
Accidental Rest Day
I meant to hit the 5:30 WOD, but that’s tough to do when an all-afternoon meeting goes until 7pm. Work happens.
Opposite of the day before, I got out of work early! Impatient to wait for CrossFit o’clock, I bundled up and took advantage of daylight and managed to get a not-so-quick 6-miler. Brrrrrr!
Happy Thanksgiving! I should have run in the morning. I didn’t. I went to my Dad’s house and ate donuts instead.
Yeah yeah yeah, you all ran Turkey Trots the day before and plastered your race photos all over social media to make sure I knew how sad of a lazy sack of potatoes I was on Thursday. So, I ran a 5K on my own before driving 6 hours to Upstate NY to assuage my completely self-imposed guilt.
Too busy watching Syracuse (my alma mater) lose to Boston College (my Father’s & Sister’s alma mater) live and in person.
