Should have had some pickle juice!

I had to take Tuesday off due to a work event, so I was fresh and ready for Wednesday's I thought!  The warm up was tough enough, weighted tire pulls, then rope drills.  My arms and legs were like jello.  So then of course what comes next, skill work of ring dips, you expect me to hold myself up much less dip down after the rope drills!  So needless to say by the time the actual wod came, I was already tired :-)  It was a good wod though, I was nice and tired after it!  But I think that i didnt drink enough water yesterday because my entire body started cramping up about an hour later.  My rib cage, my legs, my back, even the muscle that I didnt know I had under my chin!  It was miserable!

It's always the mind that fails, never the body

I was doing yesterday's Wod, and my coach told me that I was smoking everyone's times, until the last two rounds.  He's always telling me to take my mind somewhere else, that the pain is temporay and that the wod is almost is it my mind that slows me down or my actual body....

Never Quit

Last week my energy level was low.  There were several wod's I just didnt feel like doing, but I made myself.  I didnt give in.  I didnt give them my all, but at least I was doing something.  On Saturday we had a team wod, I was paired with a new guy that hadnt worked out in a quite a while.  Even though he was out of breath, in pain, and behind all of the other groups, he didnt give in, he fought till the end.  So no matter how hard the wod is, never quit.

Kicking "Annie" to the Curb!

Yesterday we did Annie.  I wanted to beat my old time but I smoked it by 3:30!  My new Annie PR is 6:09!  That is a nice motivator....could it be part of my clean eating regimne I started?  Lets hope so!  And for those of you wondering I went with clean eating rather than whole 30.  I need my protein shakes after a hard workout!  Especially when half of the time I dont get a chance to eat dinner when I get home.

Keg elements day!

I love love love lifting the keg and atlas stones.  It is such a fun way to incorporate new movements into your crossfit routine.  Yesterday we went through the elements of how to shoulder a keg and to press it.  It's so much more difficult to press a 65 lb keg thats sloshing with water than a 65 lb barbell!

Deadlifts (150#)
Uneven farmers carry Step ups (30/35#)
Games style pushups
Time: 14:32
