Taking The Plunge

Attempted to write L1 in Sweat Angels…
What have I done? Well it’s simple, I’ve
taken a big step here in my CrossFit journey. Today I signed up for the
CrossFit Level 1 Certification Course. Eek. I had this as a goal on the big
board @CrossFitCanuck, but I was hesitant to click the ‘Finish’ button (before
I had the technical issues with IE and Chrome). I’m not sure why, but I did
what I normally do when I have a question. I went to Tavia. She helped me see
that this is the path I want to go down and shortly thereafter, I was in the
October 4th class. Add to this 3 IT Certification exams from good
ol’ @Microsoft and this kid is going to have his nose buried in a book and his
butt in the box.
2 Rounds
20 Skips
15 Plate, Ground to Overhead (@25lbs)
10 Squats
MAT Activations
I was a little tired when I rolled into the
box tonight and I was not ‘good’ in my food choices today (damn potato
pancakes). So work needed to be done. We started with Pull-up Progressions and
for a change they didn’t cause havoc with my hands or shoulders. I even
experimented on the high bar (on the rig) and hit a couple of Pull-ups from the
dead hang (insert golf clap). Next up was Strict Press from the Split Jerk
stance. I was working with @CADPRO00, 5 reps every 90s for 4 rounds. I finished
up at 115lbs. Right to BN (Behind the Neck) Split Jerk for 2 and 1 Regular for
4 rounds every 90s @105lbs.
Wile E. Coyote (20 minute CAP)
3 Rounds
180 Skips
30 Wallballs (@20lbs)
15 Deadlifts (@245lbs)
Taking @matt_5577’s favorite spot at near
the roll-up door, we got into it tonight. Skips F-O-R-E-V-E-R. I didn’t do the
DU’s tonight, they just weren’t there, but with all those singles, I think we
are even. The Wallballs were tough too, but let’s be honest, I was really
looking forward to the Deadlifts. I managed to keep knocking them out 5 at a
time for the duration of the WOD which was fairly exciting. I managed to not
overheat thanks to the great breeze and finished in 17m38s. It was FUN!
5 Pull-ups

Another week has blown by and summer is
almost at an end. I got a little kick in the pants tonight from my Cash-out
partner Carling (who has bailed on the #530Crew) about my Half Marathon prep.
Yes, I am still running. No, my training is not on schedule. Yes, I will get my
act together because it’s just over 2 months away. @JessyR1978, do you hear
that sound? That’s us getting our virtual butts (wow, got to use butt 3 times
in 1 post) into actual gear.
Game ON!
