I don’t know why I named my weekly workout schedule “My CrossFit Journal” because sometimes I skip CrossFit for a week. Like this week for instance, I went just once to CrossFit (Thursday night) because I was so bloody sore from the insane Murphy Challenge the prior Saturday morning! My lats and biceps felt like they were going to rip right off, for days.
I came out of soccer “retirement” last Wednesday night. I was invited by my CrossFit coach to join their new co-ed team and start up in the indoor league. Let’s start with that:
year 1, week 28, day one. Soccer!!!
Our first soccer game started at 10:00pm this night. I showed up to the indoor field at 9:30pm and not a soul was around! I was surprised, as I thought some people would want to warm up a bit before the game. 10 minutes later, people started slowing pouring in. We started the game a bit late because there weren’t any ref’s (nor will there ever be, in this league I don’t think – very laid back).
I forgot how fast paced men are with their foot work. I felt like I had to work extra hard to show my team what I was capable of. We ended up winning 2-0.

3 Rep Max Deficit Strict HSPU
*12 minutes to establish
My CrossFit coach had a few of us practice getting up in the air for the hand stands. Apparently I was getting the hang of it pretty quickly. He then told me to stay up in the handstand for 5 seconds. I stayed up longer, which he saw. Then said for me to move forward once again and start doing the beginning of handstand push ups. SO SCARY but SO FUN!!! I ended up using 3 ab mats and just bending my arms ever so slightly. I did it a few times in a row, so it’s just now getting the depth in.
3 Ring Dip
6 Hollow Rocks
9 Box Jumps (30/24)
This workout was tough. I ended up using a 16″ box with a ton of weights on it to make it 24″, but it ended up being 25″ somehow. My hips were quite sore after this workout, so I decided to listen to my body and make it the last workout of my week. I did 9 complete rounds, I think. Either that or I was just finishing it up. I forget.
