WOD and WOW

June 3, 2010

Wow.

Wow, again. Someday…. right?!

Well, I’m not there yet but I’m definitely sticking to CrossFit now… In fact, I’m liking it more and more. Check out my workout yesterday:

Warm Up (and stretches):
400 meter run
10 squats
10 flagpole stretches
100 m run
10 lizards
10 reach throughs
10 boot-strap stretch
5 Burpee broad jump x2
5 Scoop throws (throwing medicine ball) x2

Strength:
Thrusters (sort of like a deadlift into a squat with overhead press…)
3/3/3/3/3/1/1/1 (3 then rest, 3 then rest, etc- upping weight every time)

Workout Of the Day (WOD):
4 ROUNDS
3 cleans (45 lbs)
9 kettle bell swings (12 lbs)
50 meter run
8 pull-ups (assisted)
15 goblet squats (-holding the kettle bell)
50 meter run
1 minute rest between rounds

My time for WOD: 2:06, 5:18, 8:24, 11:32
Apparently, this was pretty good… and it was definitely a great workout.

Anyone else doing CrossFit?? I know there are a ton of you trying out Insanity and P90X (woot-woot!)

Today’s post is super short… but tomorrow’s will be back to the normal foodie posts!

Damn. Color me impressed, once again. You are almost making me reconsider my decision to forgo my planned run this morning. Almost. 😉
