Thrusters and Burpees. Hiking and Swimming Big Creek.
I had a devil of a time falling asleep last night. I must have been awake, tossing and turning, from 10:30 to midnight. And then just when I’d finally fallen asleep, Lena woke up at 12:30. And then at 1:00. And then at 2:30. A brutal night of wakings and interrupted sleep.
Coffee. 2 block breakfast (salmon and a date). And off to CrossFit Asheville for the 6:00 am.
Agility drills. Sampson and Hip Mobility. Calves. Hamstrings. Pull-Ups and Push-Ups. Overhead Squats. Side Plank Rolls (all 10-15, I forget exactly).
Thrusters and Burpees.
Thrusters: Find your 5 rep max
50 Burpee Time Trial
With the Thrusters, I didn’t exclusively work towards my 5-rep max, but I worked to maximize weight at “work-out speed.” So the weights reported were executed at “full-speed.”
PVC warmups, 10 x 45 / 5 x 65 / 5 x 70 / 5 x 75 / 5 x 80 / 5 x 85 / 5 x 90 / 5 x 95 /
Then we did the burpees! There’s always time for more burpees.
Swimming Ground: Big Creek
We rode out to Waterville Road and the Big Creek Park, and hiked up the trail to a super water-hole. Totally beautiful. And cold. We did not hike all the way to the falls.
