After the 10k on Sunday morning, I took two days off for rest. Part of this was because I went swimming on Sunday and pulled a muscle in my foot somehow. So I wanted to make sure I took it easy.
Wednesday I was kind of moping arguing with myself about working out so I decided that to get myself in gear I would do Fran, a hallmark CrossFit workout, a workout I used to do all the time but that I hadn’t done in months. It goes like this:
21 thrusters (95 lb.), 21 pullups, 15 thrusters, 15 pullups, 9 thrusters, 9 pullups.
I came out strong but hit a wall during the set of 15. I rested too much and ended up with a time of 8:30. I want to be 2-3 minutes faster.
Yesterday I worked out with my friend Josh Jalandoon. Here’s what we did:
1. Heavy clean and jerks, working up to a 1RM. I’m stuck at 185. I can clean 205, but can’t lock it out over my head.
Run 800 meters
50 front squats (#95)
50 double unders
50 box jumps (22″)
50 ring pushups
50 toes to bar
Run 800 meters
The toes to bar took forever. Ended up at about 20:00 for the workout.
Today, I went in to my box because they were doing the CrossFit total. Basically you max out in deadlifts, backsquat and shoulder press, and add those numbers together. I felt great, and PR’ed everything, though I feel like I can lift even heavier given some time. Here are my numbers:
Deadlift: 360 lbs
Backsquat: 275 lbs (I know I can do better than this!)
Shoulder Press: 155 lbs
CrossFit Total: 790
Just missed 800! My goal is to DL 400, Squat 325 and Press 175. I’ll try it again at the end of the summer and see where I stand!
