My CrossFit Journal (Year 1, week 33)

Holy bananas. I can’t believe I haven’t posted any of my CrossFit workouts since Year 1, Week 29. I did take a two week break though. 10 days of it I was in Newfoundland, and getting out of vacation mode is so hard. Especially getting back into something as hardcore as CrossFit. Yes, I may have just called myself hardcore. Ha!

I only went once to CrossFit last week because I knew I was getting sick. But I wanted to get at least one WOD in before it was a full-on cold, and so I did.


year 1, week 33, day one.

I ended up using a 35lb bar with 5lbs per side on it for the WOD. The hang snatch was difficult, and I totally felt it in my elbows the next day.

We had a 25 minute time limit on this (If I recall correctly) and I completed the 5 rounds in either 20, or 21 minutes and some change.

It was a sweaty one! Before and After ;) Like my new MPG jacket? Remember how my old one pilled up? They sent me a new one right away. No problems thus far. Thankfully!


year 1, week 33, day two Soccer game!

Soccer time!!

I felt I had a good “hussle” on the field. There were 8 females on our team this night. So sub’s were quick and no one got tired on the field. Which meant each time we went out, we could go as hard as possible. Which is what I did. I did my due diligence and felt good after the game for sure.  We did lose 1-0 though!

This week coming up now. I promise to myself, I will be more active. That is the #MyBetter way.

My CrossFit Journal (Year 1, week 20)

The short:

  • CrossFit x 2
  • 5.35km run

The long (see below)


year 1, week 20, day one

Linda: Modified
Dead Lift (1.5 x Body Weight) I used 105lbs
True Push Ups (on the rings!)
Clean (0.75 x Body Weight) I used 55lbs
What 10-1 meant was that we had to complete 10 dead lifts, 10 pushups, 10 cleans. THEN count down and do 9 dead lifts, 9 pushups, 9 cleans… 8, 7, 6 etc. I ended up completing 5 dead lifts and 5 pushups on the rings and the buzzer went off. I didn’t even use “that heavy” of a weight, but I certainly felt it throughout the workout!

year 1, week 20, day two

20 minute time limit

5 Rounds
50 squats
12 chin ups

I came close to finishing the WOD and completed all 4 rounds of the 50 squats, 12 chin ups. I was on my 5th round of squats, and the timer went off. I think I had 5 left or so, then had 12 chin ups left to do.

After this workout I met up with my co-worker and her little boy and we went for a 5.35km run!!
