Instead of counting the classes (which could get old after a while) I’ve decided to start counting weeks.
Last night’s class was the first class I didn’t feel like I was going to pass out or get sick during, and I’m not sure if it’s because my body is adapting or because of my pre-WOD nutrition.
The warmup consisted of a short (300m) run and two rounds of:
- overhead kettlebell thrusters
- crab walk (!)
- twisting kettlebell rows
- um… I can’t remember the fourth exercise. I forgot to write this one down. Sorry 🙂
I made it through the warm ups and then we did snatch drills. Our WOD was a simple but effective five rounds of:
- 10x Bar facing burpees
- 10x snatches
The burpees were tough on my shoulder but I made it through two full rounds plus a full round of burpees. The snatch Rx was 65 for ladies, but I did my first round with 10lbs and then de-loaded to 7.5. My poor arms couldn’t take it after all of the work that we did during our skills section.
After two full weeks of regular crossfit 2x/week, I’ve moved up to three days a week this week, so we’ll see how it goes. Last night’s workout was tough but I didn’t feel extremely drained afterwards, which is a first for me. I’m not sure if it’s my body adapting or if it is the addition of a few extra carbs into my diet before a workout that’s getting me through.
My goal for the year this year is to not be last at least once. 🙂
