D. Row Sprints, 5 * 25s on/90s off:
Shoulders felt a bit off already in the technique part so I chose to take reps down a bit, rather then hitting them hard with 5 by 5 I did fewer reps for less impact. So, when I finally get that 100kg in my Push Press, my battery dies on me literally 3 seconds before I do the lift..
At the same day I think it was the first time ever that I beat my buddy, Mackie, in a metcon and obviously I don’t have that on tape for the same reason. OK, I should stop bragging, beat him by exactly one second so it’s not exactly huge, but hey small victories! Like the way that I went all out and never stopped moving.
Also feels good to be able to do MU’s in a wod again, not many today but still.
Rowing was awful. No explosiveness in the legs what so ever and it really shows that I haven’t focused as much on this lately. From now on my plan is to do at least 3 sessions with some kind of rowing per week to not overlook this big goat of mine.
Taught the late Advanced Class tonight as usual and wow, talk about energy! Did a, on paper, horrible version of CCF’s wod with 3 rounds of 7 wall climbs/walks mixed with 21 burpee box jumps and the guys just worked until they have nothing less. Pure awesomeness and now I have yet another wod that I just have to do, still owe the guys a go on the last weeks chipper.
Motivation is something that is best shared during hard work and I can honestly say that I’m getting a lot of it from these hard working athletes, I am truly happy to get to coach these guys towards the limitless sky.
PS. Wished for a short and heavy Sectionals WOD and boy, did the CrossFit Gods listen! All out is promised and it will be interesting to see how long I will be moving at all… 😉
