I don’t know why, but the title of this blog post sounds gross. Well probably because I was gross after doing the work out. It was about 20394902 degrees yesterday and I can honestly say yesterday’s was the very first workout in the 10 months I’ve been doing CrossFit that I REALLY wanted to quit. Had it been any longer than 3 rounds, I probably would have.
5x Squat Clean Thruster (115#/80#)
10x Box Jumps (24″/20″)
And then the conditioning portion. No one needs to see the run part (and you can’t because I didn’t take pictures), and I only did Squat Clean Thrusters for the first two rounds, then just did thrusters for the last round because I WAS DYING.
Here I am letting the box know I’m not happy with it. At all.
See that?? Rx box jump. You know.
Andddd lastly. These 2 girls are leaving me in the next couple of weeks. Audrey, on the left, my photographer and motivational leader, is leaving in 2 weeks to go to CRNA school (to get her CRNA? to be a CRNA? I’m not a nurse, I do not know the jargon…you know what I mean…) but luckily it’s somewhere I visit often so I’m not toooo heartbroken, since I know we’ll see each other. Ashley, on the right, the driven, hardcore, GET AFTER IT girl, is moving to the mid-west for another nursing ER job. It’s far away and not somewhere I tend to frequent, but definitely somewhere I want to visit!
These two ladies have been such an inspiration to me since I started at CFRVA. They are SO supportive and motivational, they know when to push me, they call me out when I’m not giving it my all, and they make me try things I’m scared of, like the box jump above, or hand stands, or pull ups with a lighter band. Their new homes are so lucky to be getting them and I’m going to miss the crap out of both of them! Best of luck to you both – you will be sorely missed (and I hope to see you soon!!)
And now, so that I stop being all mushy, and just for fun:
What a difference 4 months can make, huh?
Not a true “before” and I don’t think there will ever be an “after” (since I’ll always work at it) – but I think this shows what 4-5 days of working out and watching what you eat (for the most part) can get you. (and it’s a nice reminder to me that what I’m doing IS working).
(Thanks Audrey for the pictures!)
