Wednesday night WOD happened later than usual but it still happened. I missed my usual class with my usual peeps because I stayed a little later at work, so I went to the next one. There were only two of us there for it. The owner and his girlfriend were there lifting… I witnessed him deadlift 555lbs. Pretty impressive. And then our coach for the day was there as well. He got us started with a warmup and row etc…. the usual. Then we did our strength WOD.
3 x 10 front squats
5 x 1 push press
I did my first set of front squats with the just the 35lb bar and worked up to 55. By the 6th one I started to feel pain in my quad where I injured myself, so I just did less reps. The push press went well. I worked up to 80lbs for my last one. That’s the heaviest I have lifted since my injury and it felt good. I know I could have done more, but I didn’t want to do too much, especially since there was push press in the WOD too.
WOD- 5 rounds
3 min AMRAP
3 burpees to plate
5 push press
This is one of those WOD’s where you see it on the board and think, oh ok, that looks good. But really it’s a gasser. I knew better because I got there a little early to do some extra rolling on my legs and feet and saw the previous class when they were just finished round 2 and they already looked spent. I had to do a modified burpee and used 55 lbs for the first 3 min round for my push press but then I dropped it to 45lbs. I also switched from lunges to air squats about halfway because they were bothering my leg. I averaged about 4 rounds per 3 minute round. I felt good about it. It really was an ass kicker though, I left there so sweaty. I felt bad for the person behind me in line at the gas station because I probably didn’t smell very good.
Tonight is Halloween festivities and we are taking C trick or treating. She is SO excited. She woke up super early to check if it was raining. It is a rainy day and unfortunately the forecast says it isn’t going to let up at all. I doubt it will stop any of the kids tonight though.
Hope everyone has a happy and safe Halloween!
