Today, Mike and I did a quick cardio workout consisting of 5 movements for 100 reps each. My 5 movements were: quick punches on the bag, jump rope, walking lunges, pushups, and jumping jacks. Mike is a man-beast and did burpees instead of pushups. We did the WOD for time and I ended with a time of 17:12.
Tonight I was hanging with Billy Wilkerson and he put me through a baseline WOD. I’ve been slacking lately and I’ve asked Billy to help whip me back in shape. The baseline consisted of:
40 air squats
My total time was 9:28. I was a little disappointed with the time, but there’s tons of room for improvement.
CrossFit Day 1 was a success.
I will apologize in advance to anyone who is subscribing to this blog. I will merging my other blog with this one and back dating some posts. I’m sorry if you receive multiple notifications today.
Today I’m working the second half of a 48hr shift, thankfully at my station just a different shift.
My workout with one of the guys started with a one mile jog. Typically this is no big deal, but my legs were a little tired from 30min on the elliptical yesterday.
Upon completing the mile, we rested for 3min and then began tabatas. For those of you not familiar with tabatas it’s 20sec work and 10sec rest for 4min. for each exercise. The exercises we did were pushups, squats, situps, jump rope, pull ups.
Finally, we went across the street to the high school football field and ran the stadium stairs. There are 6 rows and 36 stairs per row at the stadium. We did the stairs and then walked a lap around the track. We completed two laps around the track/stairs totaling half a mile and 864 stairs. Those stairs are the equivalent of 54 flights of stairs (27 up and 27 down). After all of that, I’m thinking a nap is in order.
I’m trying to drink more water and less soda/tea/crap so today I successfully drank an entire gallon of water.
I have not written in over a month, not because of lack of material but because I’ve been lazy. Hopefully this Writer’s block will end soon. I’ll be back eventually.
This afternoon I donned my turnout coat and air pack then set out for a little walk around the station on the paved trail. The paved loop around my station is 3/10 of a mile long and I walked 6 laps, totaling 1.8 miles in just over 30 minutes. Killing fatty feels great!
Today we went to visit my mom at work before taking Aiden to the Yellow River Game Ranch. He had such a fun time looking at the various animals, especially the rabbits.
Here’s a few pics from the afternoon.
