Workout: April 18th

I’ll be quick…I need to get to bed… but here’s today’s workout:


Deadlift 3×15 at 50-60%
Rest 1:30 between each set.


3 Rounds:
40 Double Unders (or tuck jumps)
12 Front Squats (Men- 135#, Women- 95#)
200m Run

5 Minute Squat

via CrossFit Denton County.

This workout was deceiving.  Sneaky little jerk.  I really thought this would be a quick relatively (as in relative to the CF world) easy workout.  Notsomuch.  First we’ll start with the good.

Deadlifts were pretty good.  I did mine at 75# but really should have moved up to 85# like Matt suggested.  The 5 minute squat was good too.  Made it about 3 1/2 minutes before I had to let the blood back into my legs, then stuck it out for the rest of the squat.  Didn’t have to hold on to anything and I was on my heels the whole time.

So.  Not much to say about my workout except that I’m incredibly disappointed in myself.  On the 2nd round during the run I was cursing myself because I was walking part of the measly 200m run.  What the heck?  I’ve been doing CrossFit for nearly an entire year and I can’t even run 3 rounds of 200m runs with some lousy front squats and jumps in between.  I know I’ve come far in some aspects but when a workout like this kicks my butt like it did…quite frankly it pisses me off.  I’m better than this workout.  I should be able to beat this workout.  I should have had it done in 8 minutes but I didn’t.

So…that’s all I have to say about that.  Time 10:31.  20 Du’s in the first round then switched to tuck jumps.  35# FS.

That is all.
