400m Run Fast.  I just wanted to get back inside as quick as possible.

10 DL 135/185 (55lbs) Not bad.  Tried 60lbs but could not keep a flat back.  Did all 10 unbroken each time.

30 KB Swings 35/53 (16lbs) Need to move up.  Just nervous about my wrist and elbow.

30 Wall Balls 14/20 (10lbs) 10 at a time and so so painful.

10 DL 135/185 (55lbs)

800m Run Slow

10 DL 135/185 (55lbs) Not bad.

30 KB Swings 35/53 (16lbs) did 20 and then 10

30 Wall Balls 14/20 (10lbs) Felt a little more consistent.

10 DL 135/185 (55lbs) I know I did these but I barley remeber so they must have been ok.

400m Run Slower and then a little faster and the last 100m

Endurance WoD:
800m (2 min rest)
400m (1 min rest)
3 x 200m (30 sec)
3 x 100m (30 sec)
3 x 200m (30 sec)
400m (2 min rest)
800m **try to match first

I did a modified version which meant no 800m for me.  Felt good.  Still slow and lacking endurance.

Swings(35/53)-200M Run-T2B  

Swings (16) – 200M Run – Hollow Rocks










T2B or rather Knees to Elbows hurt my elbow so I opted to do hollow rocks.  Finished quick.   Should move up to next kettle ball but nervous.  Legs were loose from EWod, still felt slow but not heavy legs.

10 MIN. TO FIND YOUR 2 REP MAX. SNATCH (35 lbs) Still felt a little shallow in my squat but was getting better.



10 D.B THRUSTERS 20/30 (8lbs) I meant to do 10lbs but I picked up 1 8lbs dumbbell and 1 10lbs.  When I went to pick them up for my second round I relized I had two different weights.  I ran over to exhange the 8lbs but could not find another 10lbs quick enough so I just grabbed the 8lbs.  Still was super hard.

10 OVER THE AB MAT BURPEES I am terrible at jumping.  Need to jump more in life, in general.

10 KTE’S (Used the Captains Chair so I did not strain my elbow)

3 +1 and 1 burpee

Not my best but glad I got it in.

6am bikram class today.  got up at 5:00am this hopefully will carry through for tmr for 6am running wod and normal wod.

bikram was good.  i felt pretty flexible and well balanced.  i still get pain mostly in my right foot when doing the one legged postures.  its pin and needles type of thing so i think its due to poor circulation which i am pretty sure i have since my extremities are always freezing.  spine strenghting was good.  felt a little slow.  crossfit has promoted my endurance for holding postures and my leg muscles so much.

made protein smoothie fitmixer slim still on the fence about this.  i did not do enough research and just choose based on price.  i got a 7lbs bag because why do anything small so I am just going to work my way through it. smoothie contained:

1/4 cup water

1 tbs peanut butter

1 scoop fitmixer slim

1 frozen banana

1 handful of frozen black and raspberries

a drizzle of honey

This is my basic smoothie recipe. i always use a banana because it helps with muscle ache and i switch out the other frozen fruit depending on what is on sale.  if i want to treat myself i will substitute milk for the water.

I based my “formula” of of No Meat Athlete’s great blog post about smoothies.

20 minute AMRAP

5 Hang Squat Cleans 95/135 (15lbs)

10 Box Jumps (20″ box)

15 KB Swings 35/53 (16lbs)


50 Pullups  I modified with green band.  First 25 were good.  Getting better at my kipping.  Chest getting above bar.  Last 5 were sloppy.

400M Run

21 Thrusters 65/95 (15lbs) I am having such a hard time with my squats/trusters.  I really wanted to work this one light because I want to get my form right but I just have such a hard time.  Whenever I get corrected I do not feel any difference so I do not know how to keep it correct besides having some one stand over me and say so.

800M Run 

21 Thrusters 65/95 (15lbs)

400M Run  I was lagging last 100M thankfully I had a great motivator and pace setter so it made it 100% easier to finish this up.

50 Pullups modified with green band

***Scale if needed***



Hang Power Snatch 55/75

Overhead Squats 55/75

Ring Dips

Run 400M Run


Hang Power Snatch 55/75

OHS 55/75

Ring Dips

***CAP is 27 minutes***

I did not finish this one.  My shoulder and back were super sore. I woke up in the middle and had to stretch for a few minutes. I grabbed the 15lb bar and hoped for the best.  I totally lost steam after the run.  My goal was to make it to 5 but I only made it to 8.

20 Minute AMRAP

5 Burpees

10 KTE’s (did 3 or so rounds of pretty good ones and then my right elbow started to lock up so i switched to use the “captains chair” for the rest)

15 KB Swings 35/53 (i have no idea. they are in kilograms and i totally can not remember what it even said, it was orange)

Final: 6 +1

I wish I had pushed harder.  I really need to work on my push-up/burpee form it gets so sloppy when I get tired.  Kettle Ball Swings were good. Need to work on tightening my arms when raised.  Feelings pretty good.

Have to stay focused on my work because my cousin is coming into town for a few hours tomorrow.


10 DB Split Jerks (20/30) I did 8.  Next time should do 10.

15 Spiderman Pushups These were questionable in the push up department since my push up is pretty week but no longer doing any “girl pushups” just hand release ones during warm up. I have improved my pushup a town since I started crossfit but it sometimes feels like something I will never be able to do well so I guess I should add that to my goals list.

10 CTB (chest to bar) Pull Ups Used a green band.  Was hard but not impossible until round 5, then it felt impossible.  I had to fight so hard not to cheat and just say wherever I was is good enough.

15 box jumps Used the red box again.  Did pretty well.  Broke up last 3 rounds into 5’s. On last 5 of round 5 kinda bite it and fell on the box but I just got back up and did it again. Nothing like concurring a fear.

1 rope climb First time doing this. Used the knotted rope. Coach held the rope and instructed me as I went. Made it all the way to the top twice, including my last climb but my hands are really hurting as I type.

Final time: 32:30 ( I think.  I was very tired when this was all done)

long day ahead of editing and driving.  thankfully no shoot until Saturday.  three days in a row has been a lot.  looking forward to a hot hot bikram class at 6am (well not the 6am part)


1 min per station/no rest between station/30 sec rest between rds(just enough time to write down you score, lol)

-Dubs (mostly singles, few doubles)

-Alt Lunges(in place)

-Ab Mat Situps

-Thrusters 55/75 ( i did #35)

-Ring Rows

today’s wod was a handful.  my husband asked me this morning if he thought I had done all the crossfit exercise yet, its been just under 3 months, I told him I have done most but there is always something just a little different.  like today with the ring dips, which were killer. its defiantly a week point for me but i liked the low pressure on my wrists defiantly going to put them on the goat list.

i am bad at math and i think today proved even worse at just straight up counting.  it is so hard for me to focus on doing an exercise and counting. i have gotten better you know counting to 10-15 but to keep counting through 5 different exercises was super hard. i never want to embellish but I really had no idea how many things I did today at all. I said 285, which was low looking at the board but I have no idea.

I did #35 on my thrusters and they were hard.  I have a tough time “exploding up” from my squat. Maybe I need to back it down to #25.

I worked on my plain old squats after the wod.  Did 50 broken up, 3/15 and 1/5 with a ball to help me to tell how low i was going.  I could feel myself getting a little more momentum going up.  I am going to continue doing these this week at 3 out of the 4 days.  I never understood growing up the whole practice thing at all but you can improve with a little work each day.  Like with my DU, finally can do a few, not in a row but with like two singles in between!


when I am not at crossfit I am a wedding/portrait photographer. with hurricaine sandy beaches have been flooding. had to run away from the water on sunday.
