My CrossFit Journal (week 15)


Week 15 Day 1.

Push Press

The last time I did a push press was a while ago and I thought I did 65lbs but for that WOD I ended up doing 55lbs. This day I went up, and went back down in weights. I tried doing 60 and 65lbs, but couldn’t push out 5 in a row, so I stuck with 55lbs.

The warmup for this workout was a 2km run. I ended up rowing instead, since I hyper extended my knee at Soccer the day before. I kicked someone in between the legs (by accident) and my knee went the other way. So I babied it for a few days. I found an awesome photo site for some great CrossFit images, so I’ll be linking those into my journal entries coming up. Here’s what the rowing machine looks like in case you didn’t know, lol.

Rowing for 2k was pretty difficult. I was covered in sweat and probably would’ve been less out of breath on the 2k run. Whooo wee! Rough stuff.

It was 32ºC this day, and my skin glistened like this by the time the WOD was done.

Only a handful of people completed this entire workout the whole day. I’m not sure anyone in my class completed it. But I got down to the 20 pull ups. I ended up doing 19 out of 20 in the 30 minute time limit we were given. My hands ripped and now band-aids are on protecting them. Ouch. There’s even a callus waiting to come off on my other hand, a big bubble. Too much of a visual for you? Sorry.


Week 15 Day 3.

10 Med Ball Cleans
50 Yard Sprint

I wasn’t sure I’d make it to this class since I rarely go to the later one in the evening. I got my hair cut and bolted it to class. I wanted to go a lot this week!


Week 15 Day 4.

7 Rounds:
8 Snatch (95/65)
10 SDLHP (95/65)

The first round in itself was very difficult. I ended up doing the workout using 55lbs in total. We had a twenty minute time limit and I finished 6 rounds with no seconds to spare. I could barely stand up straight after, I felt like I wanted to fall forward. Definitely worked the lower back. Definitely ready for a rest.
