My CrossFit Journal (Year 1, week 29)

I had a pretty low week, fitness wise. I worked out 4x but didn’t feel strong, or capable. Didn’t stop me from going. But here’s a summary of last week’s workouts, recapped below:


year 1, week 29, day one.

Bench Press


My limit was hit quickly with this bench press. I ended up benching 65lbs 3 times, but when I got to 75 (really should’ve went to 70lbs instead) I couldn’t do 1.  I know my limit at least! lol

Strict Pull-ups

Strict pull ups are so hard. The end.

For Time:
50 Double Unders
100 Hollow Rocks
100 Superman Rocks

We had 15 minutes for this. I ended up completing it 30-ish seconds before the timer went off! YEAH.


year 1, week 29, day two

  No shame. This is a photo of me in the women’s change room at CrossFit, after my workout here below:

Hang Clean & Squat

Push Jerk; 135/95lbs
Toes To Bar

If you break any of the push jerks, or toes to bar we were supposed to do 20 double unders, or 20 skips. HAHHAHA So crazy. Everyone was skipping constantly.

I can guarantee that people cheat at CrossFit. They’re only cheating themselves. I just can’t stand it, I know for sure this one person cheats and it drives me nuts. I wonder if the coaches notice, or anyone else?

I ended up finishing this one, seconds before the timer went off. I’m getting mixed up from this workout, from the previous one. I think this one was a 14 minute time limit. I used 55lbs for the Push Jerks, love those!


year 1, week 29, day three Soccer game!

Soccer time!!

Like my CrossFit soccer jersey?

I went to the game. We were a lot of ladies short. It’s required to have 3 females on the field at all times. We had to recruit someone’s sister-in-law to play with us. Even then we were still short, and had 3 females on but no sub’s. So the girls played the whole game.

It was tiring, only because the men have such fancy footwork and I felt like such a tool on the field. I was completely lost and not playing aggressive at all. Though, I did make a few decent speedy runs and hit the ball on the net a few times. I guess it’ll take a few weeks to get back into the groove.

We lost 4-2 I think.


year 1, week 29, day four

I wore my new MPG (Mondetta Performance Gear) clothes to CrossFit this night. I’ll speak more in detail about this next week. But ehh ehh do you like? It’s a Canadian athletic wear company. Hey at least I’m not going to Madison Avenue Mall for furs and wearing that.

4×8 Back Squats

I made it to 75lbs with the backsquats. We had to do it 8 in a row, 4x with varying weights. I decided to amp it to 85lbs and my form was gone. My coach even told me to bump the weight back down and focus on that. It was rough. I’m not strong at all. I’m more of a fan of quick, speedy cardio workouts.  But hey – gotta work on it. Right?

Front Squat (135/95)

This mean: 10 front squats, 10 burpees, 9 front squats, 9 burpees — and count down that way. We had a 15 minute time limit for this one. I used 55lbs for my front squats. My coach again came over to me, noticing how difficult I was finding it. He said to keep going slow as I was, and that it doesn’t matter if I just get down to 6 or 7 reps in the 15 mins. Just focus on lifting properly, and not worrying about speed. Just need to build strenght.

So, I did. I ended up doing ONE front squat on my 5’s as the timer went off. Rough workout.
