Workout: “Annie”

Well, I wrote this a long time ago but I guess I never actually published it…so…here it is! 🙂

Thursday’s workout was….

Deadlift 5×5


Double Unders

Compare to 11-16-10.

Max Pull-ups x3

via CrossFit Denton County.

For this workout, I scaled the DU’s to 25-20-15-10-5 and kept the sit ups as Rx’d.

This was the first workout that I could not finish.  And did not finish….until the next day.  Thursday I had eaten virtually nothing except for coffee and a soda (which I never drink) for breakfast.  Lunch was a cheesy chicken panini and a caesar salad from Corner Bakery and dinner was nothing (before my workout anyway).  When I started to do the workout, I felt fine but halfway through the 40 sit ups, I started to feel sick to my stomach.  Then, during the 15 DU’s, I started to get tunnel vision and get really dizzy.  I sat down and could not get back up.  I was so sick and so lightheaded I thought I was going to throw up, pass out, or both.  I could barely even talk.  Casey & Scott came to check on me and saw that I as not sweating at all.  It was nearly 90 degrees in the middle of a pretty intense 11 minute workout…this is not good.  Anyway, I got some water in me and a cold, frozen meat of some sort put on my neck to cool me down.  It took me around 20 minutes to recover enough to sit up and another 10 to be able to stand up and walk around.  When I got home, Leighton cooked me a wonderful, filling, nutritious, delicious paleo dinner and slowly, but surely I felt complete recovery by the time I went to bed.

Friday, I went in and re-tried “Annie” again in the 5 a.m. class.  Wow.  What a difference good nutrition makes!  I blasted through the workout and did all the situps virtually unbroken.  I also did pretty well on my DU’s and only broke them up because I missed my jumps.  The last 3 sets of DU’s were unbroken.  My time ended at 10:43 and I’m pretty happy with that.  Especially since back in November my time was around 10:30 and I had to do 2x the singles (so 100-80-60-40-20 singles instead of the DU’s).  So glad I’m finally getting the hang of DU’s.  Can’t wait until I can do 20 or more unbroken!

And…with all that excitement, I cannot remember what I did on my deadlifts…

Anyway…there’s your fitness update for  now (even though I wrote most of it back in April…LOL)

Sorry I haven’t written much lately…honestly…nothing interesting happening lately!  Maybe I’ll just start posting more about my workouts. 🙂 🙂

P.S.  If you haven’t already, or if you are interested, please sign up for the May Day Challenge at CrossFit Denton County.  It’ll be a blast!! (and scaled so that everyone can participate!)  The proceeds will benefit Champions of Hope, a mentorship program aimed at providing at-risk students in the Dallas area with caring, positive role models who will walk with them from 4th/5th grade until high school graduation. 

If you can’t participate, please come and show your support for me (and CFDC) at the competition!!!
