My CrossFit Journal (1 year + 1 week in)

My post is a bit late. Usually I post my CrossFit entries on Monday. Busy posting schedule this time! 

Moses. One year in. Let’s see how I did, shall we?


day one

25 minutes:
100 Pull-ups
100 Push-ups
100 Sit-ups
100 Squats
I love sick workouts like this. I love kipping pullups, I kinda don’t mind pushups, situps or squats either. But putting them all together to see how long it takes me to do this crazy WOD.
Our warmup was similar and kinda nuts:
2 minute squat hold
15 pullups
2 minute squat hold
15 pushups
2 minute squat hold
15 situps
2 minute squat hold
15 squats
2 minute squat hold

Day of, and then 6 days later. Gross, I know. Apologies.

We had a 25 minute time limit. I didn’t come close to finishing the workout at all. 100 pullups took most of my time and ended up giving me an ugly blood blister which has yet to go away. I had 29 pushups left to do. My lats were sore for DAYS that I decided to not go much that week at all.

My CrossFit Journal (week 52)

It’s my first anniversary at CrossFit!! I’ve been going for a whole YEAR. That seems like madness to me. Regular gym memberships hold my interest for 4 months tops, and to see myself still going frequently without much break to CrossFit excites me! What’ve got rounded up for this week? Not much gotta admit. I was feeling pretty lazy this week. So I didn’t go as often as I wanted to. Next week will be better!


Week 52 Day 1.


Power Cleans; 115/80lbs
Thrusters; 115/80lbs

That’s 21 power cleans, then 21 thrusters, 15 power cleans, 15 thrusters, and so on. OH MY LORD.

I used 45lbs in total and finished the workout in 16:13. My shoulders are still pretty weak in comparison to the rest of my body. So the thrusters were taking their toll on me. Especially on my right wrist. Power through it! I had enough of it all when I had to start the thrusters again, but then I totally played with my mind. I pretended I was throwing my nephews up in the air and somehow, it made it easier. I wasn’t thinking about the weight at all. I was thinking about my nephews. Funny what your brain can trick you to do.

My CrossFit Journal (week 51)

I handed over my credit card back on February 24, 2011 to sign up on a monthly basis for CrossFit. I’m pretty sure I went to two or three classes the week prior making my titles on the CrossFit blog posts accurate. Which is good! I’m almost at my one year mark. What a feeling…


Week 51 Day 1.

5 Rounds

150 Running Skips
21 Deadlifts; 185/135lbs – I did 105lbs

I couldn’t complete the five total rounds I was on my 10th deadlift. Everyone was finished. I think I lifted too heavy of a weight for 21 reps and 5 rounds. Hoo wee.

Sad I only made it in once this week.
