Lesson Learned

Warm up:

2 Rounds:

15 Kettlebell Swings

15 Romanian Deadlifts (with Kettlebell)

15 Goblet Squats

Completed Warmup: @35lbs. kettle bells.  For some reason I can do kettle bells at or near RX.

WOD:

I. Front Squat

1 – 1 – 1 – 1 – 1

Completed: @ 85lbs, then, 105lbs., 115lbs, 125lbs. Tried for 135lbs and failed. 125lbs is my current PR in Front Squats. Thanks James for introducing yourself as a new coach at ACF. And thanks for all your encouragement and good advice.

So, lesson learned. Admit to yourself and to the four people that read your blog that you cheated, and your whole perspective changes. There was no way I was going to ‘lose count’ and not finish tonight’s WOD. I was so determined, I loaded up my bar to RX at 55lbs. and went. At. It.

II. 5 Rounds For Time:

10 Push Press (75/55)

20 Box Jumps (24/20)

*15 Minute Cap

Completed: in 8:35. RX! woot. woot. Had to resort to some step ups in the middle, but finished nonetheless.  Felt great!!  I think Kim was actually proud of me. I’m just happy her pooches are home and doing better. How we love our doggies.
