Exciting news on the CrossFit front. Today I RX’d my first WOD with double unders ever! It took me forever and I was the last one to finish by 5 minutes but I did it!
I was really looking forward to doing this WOD. I love chippers and this looked like a great workout to kick off my week! The burpee box jumps were pretty terrible (they always are) and I did step ups for some of them because I had this nagging feeling that today was the day I would miss a box jump and bust my shins. The pull ups took eternity but I kipped every one of them. I went into the WOD thinking that I would do 25 pullups and 25 ring rows or move to a band but once I got going my stubbornness kicked in and I kept kipping, even though I was only getting 3-4 at a time. Push press and air squats were the easiest part of the workout. I thought I was going to do 2:1 singles to replace the double unders but after I struggled through the pull ups there was NO WAY I was finishing this workout without an RX.
I was the last one to finish but I didn’t even care. I was so proud of my accomplishment!
I never take the 9:30 a.m. class but reader Hannah was in town from Philly for a job interview and wanted to drop in for a class so I met her to workout. It was so great to connect after a couple of years of messaging. Also, Hannah kicked ass in the WOD! 🙂
Pre-workout breakfast was sourdough toast with a scrambled egg and melted white cheddar with watermelon on the side.
Post-workout lunch was an awesome wrap with portobello, hummus, roasted red peppers, avocado, cilantro and feta. It was a unique flavor combination but it worked so well.
Backing up to Sunday for a minute. I survived a 4 mile run in 86 degree heat and then went to the grocery to get lunch supplies. All I wanted was a sandwich, chips, a pickle and a lemonade Vitamin Water.
Sunday night dinner was ridiculous! I was so proud of myself for coming up with this combo. I served mahi burgers over cabbage slaw and topped them with guacamole and then had farmers market sliced tomatoes, chili-lime corn and sauteed zuchhini, squash and shishito peppers on the side. I am so loving summer flavors right now. I am NOT ready for fall!
CrossFitters…what’s one movement that prohibits you from RXing WODS?
Non CrossFitters…still loving summer or ready for fall?
