I’ve been pretty bad about getting to the gym lately. I think partly because my energy is low on the Whole30 diet (not eating enough, but not hungry either), but partly because I’m quite bored of going to the gym. All my tumblr friends seem to have found something that excites them and that motivates them to go even when it’s tough, but I just don’t feel that spark.
Still, I feel the need to be active, if only for my general health and wellbeing, so I went to Crossfit on Tuesday.
WOD 1: 21 - 15 - 9
Deadlifts @ 50kg
Box jumps to 12”
Wall balls @ 6kg to 9’
Notes: this was tougher than it should have been. The deadlifts were light, but by round 2 my legs were completely gassed and I had to break them up into fives and fours; the box jumps were fine in the first round, but halfway through the second I changed to step ups as I was concerned that I would stack it through tiredness; and the wall balls were three at a time in all three rounds. That said, I remember when I started in January, 6kg wall balls were almost impossible to get up to 9’ and I definitely couldn’t do more than one at a time. Now I can cycle three in one go, so that’s some good progress.
WOD 2: 60kcal row for time - 5:23
Not the fastest, but I maintained a steady pace and met my goals of sub-6:00, then sub-5:30 (adjusted on the fly).
