Sub 40 degrees outside, and the coaches away at a meet. Time to get cold with some outdoor parkour and calisthenics!
A nice little Saturday WOD in the Park with Mike P., M3, and Troy (Mike’s Sister’s friend). Sprinting and calisthenics.
A difficult WOD from the Mothership: 400 meter walking lunges.
A quick note about my second Tuesday strength day.
Something like Cindy, and Push Press for Strength (new PR, 150 lbs).
We meet up outside at UNCA to do “Run for your Legs,” a WOD which, at first glance, looked like it had the potential to be a CrossFit version of Zeno’s paradox. Start a clock, run 1 mile for time, only you have to stop every 2 minutes to do 20 squats. Later during the day, I overindulged quite deliberately in a cheat day that reminded me why I try to eat healthy most of the time.
The gym is closed, but I do the prescribed WOD at UNCA track: the “Griff,” 800 forward / 400 backward / 800 forward / 400 backward: 13:54.
We revisit “Tabata Something Else,” last performed on May 1st, 2009. I do the WOD unassisted for the first time.
CrossFit Asheville does Nasty Girls! Squats, Muscle-Ups, Hang Power Cleans! What more could you wish for? Tougher wrists, traps, lats, and triceps, that’s what.
The WOD known as “Bear Country” comes back around. 3 rounds of 5 bear complex cycles and max rep pull-ups. Also, Kip-Swings.
