Warm up: 100 rope turns - bear crawls - 100 rope turns

A: Front Squat

B: 4 rounds for total time
30 jumping lunges
10 thrusters 95/65
10 C2B pull ups
Rest 2 minutes

To my surprise, there were only 3 people at the 7pm class last night. Me, a male WODer and the coach. I'm definitely getting better at my single rope turns, hopefully I can start doing double unders consistently. When Fellow WODer and I did the bear crawls, you know... it's a warm up so I was taking my sweet time and this guy hauls it past me! He looks back and goes, "C'MON STACY!" so I started hauling ass behind him, of course he beat me... DAMMIT. It's okay. It was fun, lol.

Results A: 85-95-105-115-135 and decided to try a little more weight ... I PRed at 140 lbs. Since this was 2-person class, lol, we were constantly rooting each other on and keeping each other motivated. It was great.

Results B: 14:10 at 35 lbs thrusters (damn my shoulder) and 20" box for jumping pull ups

It turns out that he has a bad shoulder too! We were both suffering through our WOD but we managed to get through it. I also felt kind of lucky that there were only two of us, because I got to talk a little more with Coach P and get to know her.

Post WOD, I headed over to Nancy's job and hung out until closing. We went to LA after to run a quick errand and had a late dinner together. She started crossfit because of a voucher that she bought at another local gym and she's loving it. If only it weren't so expensive! :( Well, all I know is that I wouldn't mind doing mock crossfit exercises with her at good, old 24.

Anyways, today's WOD looks KILLER. But I already WODed 3 days in a row. I'm putting in max effort to get out of bed and to potty. UGH. So until tomorrow...


Popular posts from this blog about that comfort zone

So, for the past year and a half, I have made it a point to do things to get out of my comfort zone. Even if it's as minuscule as going to farmers market. 
BTW, I went to a farmers market for the first time on Saturday! The BFF has been wanting to go and we finally had the chance to. So, you know how they sell organic and fresh produce? Yeah... We didn't get any of that. However, we did taste test some fruits and it was friggin bombskies! 

Nutella filled Hawaiian donut. What's up. 

BFF got her flowers and I got my macaroons from Munch Bakery. Turns out her dad and my dad golf together. 
Random question: how far would you drive to buy a couple pairs of pants?
To answer that for myself... 80 miles round trip... And the pants weren't even for me, lol. 
Shoutout to the BFF for sticking it out with me! 

After four, and I repeat, FOUR hours of searching for pants, the BFF and I met up with Big Bruddah at Gen KBBQ! Best decision of my life!
Another comfort-zone-breaker... I …

Skee TV: Fort Minor

So let me tell you. I've never won anything... EVER. During my Monday mini break, I was on instagram and saw that Skee TV was having a giveaway. Pretty much just comment on that picture of Mike Shinoda/Fort Minor and that's my entry. 
Skee TV added me on instagram, and commented on one of my pictures (Rawle D. Lewis) saying I was chosen! I emailed them and boom. I got my tickets. 
I followed Fort Minor since Mike Shinoda created it and man, it was AWESOME. And I can knock it off my bucket list - going to a rap/hip hop show. Also got a glimpse of Mr. Hahn!
I don't care what you say. I'm happy AF. 

Since I won, the Skee TV rep hooked it up with some merchandise. Mike Shinoda signed the snapback. I fangirled so hard.

After the show, we managed to head to Guisados and got some mafuggin tacos.
