That’s right Ladies and Gentlemen; we have a new number one!
Tavia, it’s not the kind you’re thinking of though. This is the ROPE. Please pay close attention
because the ROPE has gone straight to the head of the class as my number one ‘Most
failing at anything. So in addition to everything else (half-marathon, two
duathlons and the Ride for Heart), before October I WILL climb the ROPE.
been pretty sore. Now not broken down
sore, but there was a point where my body forgot how to walk. It must have been pretty comical to watch as I
waddled away. So I will start working on
short rest (Wednesday and Thursdays) so I need to get used to working out
harder. We had to do pushups as part of the warm-up and I thought for sure that
I was going to not come back up. It was tough sledding and my shoulder was
unhappy but I got loose and we got started.
Burpee (which was just mean to throw on the end there)
the back squat. We were going for 1 set
of 20 reps and we loaded up the bar beyond my posted max (yay!!). 115lbs for 20
reps and I even managed to keep decent form.
Not bad, but entirely due to the wall squat homework I have been doing
(when you think about it, I have to be the only person doing CrossFit who gets
assigned homework). Then we started the
WOD and I will be honest, the ROPE part… Not so fun.
3 Rope Climbs (9 if doing modified – I was modified)
18 Wall Ball (10lb ball)
(yet) and I had a lot of trouble with the ROPE.
You want me to press 400lbs with my legs, no problem. The ROPE is a whole differenet animal. I had to really get my legs into it, got my hands chewed up and
completed 6,5,3,2 and 2 for the rounds.
I just didn’t have anything left.
but starting next week I will be going to 3 a week. I’m also going to convert my membership to a
year (I’m only on a 3 month term right now).
I can’t remember ever working this hard at GoodLife or having the sense
of accomplishment (when you finish a WOD).
I’m officially hooked.
this weekend! Not sure I ever would have tried CrossFit if you guys hadn’t
opened CrossFit Canuck. Thank You!
