My CrossFit Journal (week 6)

I don’t know when I’ll be switching over my weeks into months. How would I word that? Month 2 Week 2 … Month 4.2? Maybe it’s just easier for my little math-fail brain to just keep going on with weeks. Deep voice: Week 78. I was also too lazy to go Wednesday, Thursday or Friday morning since I had stuff going on in the evenings. So I didn’t do much this week… read on!


Week 6 Day 1, Monday.

WOD 20 minute allowed time:
75 Squats
50 Pull-ups
20 Ring dips
50 Squats
35 Pull-ups
15 Ring dips
25 Squats
20 Pull-ups
10 Ring dips

Third image shown isn’t accurate of what I was doing. My feet were on the floor.

There was about 10 of us in the class this day and I think I was the second person to finish. My time was around 19 minutes 38 seconds. I really really wanted to finish this workout because our trainer said a lot of people didn’t end up finishing. I also hate knowing I’m so close and not finishing. That’s my inner-self-competitiveness coming out right there. I was making all sorts of grunting noises at the end and my hair was a sweaty mop. So disgusting. I also have to add that I added a third band for the pull-ups (making it easier) and for the ring dips I was in the “easiest” position, therefor I guess I could pump out my reps in time. The squats were absolutely ridiculous, and by the end of the entire workout my forarms were pumped like I was climbing a 5.11 (lol) and I couldn’t even open my water bottle. SO AWESOME.


Week 6 Day 2, Tuesday.

Thrusters (95/65)

9 Toes 2 Bars
6 Box Jumps (30/24)
3 Wall Climbs

We had a 25 minute time limit. I was paired up with my friend who introduced me to CrossFit. She’s much stronger than I am so we each had different weights for the Thrusters. Each time there is a * star, you do the bottom workout. So do 5 thrusters, then 9 toes to bars, 6 box jumps, 3 wall climbs, then 10 thrusters… etc. I could barely do the Toes To Bars, so I was given the task to do knees to elbows. It was still difficult in the core. We ended up doing the 5 * 10 * 15 and didn’t end up doing another * star workout. I think I enjoyed Wall Climbs. So balancy, and a lot of core strength needed. Lovin’ it!


Week 6 Day 3, Saturday.

5 rounds
400meter run
5 Back Squats (I used 55lbs)

Here’s what the back squats looked like. But instead of starting from the ground each time. I kept the bar on my back and just did the 5 squats, and dropped the weight behind my back as soon as I was done, and went off for the run again. I felt as though I haven’t been to CrossFit in ages. The run had my breathing all messed up again, and I’m SO ANGRY with it. I pych myself out on runs that are 5k, and now I’m starting to psych myself out on a measly 400m run.
