So it’s a Monday-drag-BUT I did have a lovely start to the day with the wod. I literally almost died a little bit, but I did make it through. I finished last, which isn’t something I normally do, but I was trying to go heavier on the weight today. The wod was a metcon; it was for time and it consisted of- 50 wall balls with the 14 lb. wall ball, 30 cleans which I did at 83 lbs. and 15 chest to bar pull ups. I have to do the pull ups with a band, which is whatever. But my max clean so far has been 103 lb. which I’ve done around 4 times at once. Doing 3o cleans at 83 lb. today makes me realize that my clean is probably way heavier than that now!
Me cleaning and split jerking 103 lb. ————————————————————————->
Even though I finished last during the wod today I’m pretty proud of myself for doing that weight and for not dropping the weight down at all. I’ll get faster as I get stronger, but for now my goal is going to be to perfect my technique because without technique I will only get so far on my lifts. Brandon was telling me what I need to work on skills wise over the next few weeks so I think that I might work on that at night this week.
This also has to do with the fact that I really shouldn’t be doing anything crazy this week because my CrossFit competition is THIS Saturday so this week is more of a deloader week for me. I’ll mainly do mobility or skill with the pvc/ bar this week. I don’t want to do anything too crazy because I want my body to be nice and relaxed and rested for this weekend.
Plus, I’ll be taking Friday completely off from the workout, which is what I’ve been advised to do by both my coach and fellow athletes who are competing and have competed before. But basically I’m going to be grumpy on Friday because I generally like never take a rest day besides Sundays…
<- How I will look on Friday…So that’s enough about that. I can’t wait, only 3 more weeks until Thanksgiving when I get to go home and see my family and basically just not be in class for like 4 days in a row, it will be glorious! Also, it will give me time to outline my last class, study, get caught up on hw/get ahead, and it will let me update the other outlines that I basically have done. So it won’t really be much of a break, but I will get to eat turkey, so that’s a win!
So that’s basically it for now. I just have classes, hw, and attempting to chill on my workouts this week. Nothing too exciting until the weekend and I’ll keep y’all updated on that after!
So until later, TTFN!
