crossfit love

slowly, but surely

When I first moved, I was living in New Jersey with my sister and commuting nearly four hours each day to work. During that time I didn't work out at all and felt really tired all the time. I was eating poorly (and not enough) and I lost a lot of energy and inertia that I had spent over a year building up.


Helen is one of my all time favorite workouts. I've kept excellent records of this WOD since I started crossfitting.

Helen consists of:
3 rounds for time
400 m run
21 kettlebell swings (1 pood for women, 1.5 pood for men)
12 pullups

April 22, 2009

used 12 kg (3/4 pood) for the swings
used the big green band on pullups


August 17, 2009

Rx swings
red band for the pullups


Somehow finished all of 2010 without doing this WOD???

4 PRs + Random Roundup

Not to toot my own horn or anything, okay, I’m totally tooting my own horn. I’ve had a great week, 4 PRs this week.

mobility WOD

a trip to chulajuana...

Aubyn & Bekka at CrossFit Chula Vista

I took a nice drive down South to visit my girl Aubyn at her native CrossFit Chula Vista. We have never CFed togther, we only ever CFE together.

First of all, I didn't know there were toll roads in San Diego.. oops!

Secondly, she emailed me the workout yesterday morning:
10 rounds for time of:
10 thrusters at 65# (95# for men)
10 ring pushups
OUCHIES! Knowing the WOD all day made me nervous.

lots of stuff going on!

I was too late getting going this morning to make it to the 11am class at CF Elysium, so I went to the regular gym to do today's WOD. I now remember why I don't go to the gym anymore. It is so hard for me to keep my mouth shut when I see people working out and doing the most random exercises. There was a guy "squatting" and maybe going down like 4 inches from his standing position. I was tempted to go tell him that was weaksauce but to each his own.

overhead squats.. yeah, don't like those

a new day, and blurry vision..

I woke up this morning and my foot was feeling so much better. I spent much of my time today watching the CrossFit Games Live Feed. I was so happy they were streaming the games live, it was awesome. And totally inspiring, I was itching all day to get to the gym and do a workout.

Thank goodness Paul & Leon picked a doozy for today. We did "The Chief," it was killer, I loved it. On my drive home my vision started going a bit blurry.
