We’re getting induced today at 8am! Really excited to meet the new addition to the family. Since I’m pretty sure I won’t get a workout in tomorrow (Thursday), I was up early before we needed to leave the house.
50-40-30-20-10 reps for time of:
I really pushed the pace on both parts. Ended at 6:51, which is still far off my PR. Not quite sure how I can go faster.
Finished with some jump rope accessory work.
2 rounds of 1 minute each:
I need with 391 total reps.
Still no baby yet! Yesterday was the official due date. We have a doctor appointment scheduled for later today. Given that the baby is going to come any moment now, I’m cherishing the workouts while I can still get them in.
I roped Zach into coming to the gym with me to knock out this week’s Monster Mash series from CrossFit Linchpin. We started around 10:45AM.
7 rounds of:
- 7 Burpee Box Jump Overs, 24″
- 3 Bar Muscle-ups
2 rounds of:
- 35 Med Ball Cleans, 20 lbs
- 15 Push Jerks, 115 lbs
3 rounds of:
- 25 Kettlebell Swings, 53 lbs
- 15 Toes-to-bars
- 15 Ring Dips
I’m not sure if it was because of the order, but these definitely progressed from most to least favorite! I was pretty out of gas by the final piece. Rested 5 minutes between pieces.
I did Murph earlier last week since today is officially Graham’s birthday. I wanted to make sure I got it in. So, today, I did a workout from last week from CrossFit Linchpin.
3 rounds of:
- 9 Strict Pull-ups
- 22 Dumbbell Deadlifts, 50 lbs
- 9 Single Arm Dumbbell Power Snatches Right, 50 lbs
- 9 Single Arm Dumbbell Power Snatches Left, 50 lbs
- 9 Dumbbell Squats, 50 lbs
Finished with 4×12 Dumbbell Bent Over Row at 50#.
- 95# x10
- 135# x8
- 155# x8
- 185# x5
- 225# x5
- 235# x4
- 255# x3
- 275# x2
Legs felt a bit lousy, but we got it done!
EMOM for 10 minutes:
- 12 Russian Kettlebell Swings, 53 lbs
- 12 Squats
Honestly, this felt pretty easy. I finished each set in 34 seconds without any trouble. Probably should’ve increased the reps!
Since we’re not sure when this baby is going to get here, I decided to knock out Murph today. No vest this year, which is totally okay with me!
I started off with a 10 min EMOM of 2 strict HSPU to add 20 to my yearly total. They felt pretty easy honestly, but I can tell I didn’t do any last week! Positioning didn’t feel great.
Then, it was Murph:
1 mile run then:
- 100 Pull-ups
- 200 Push-ups
- 300 Squats
Followed by a 1 mile run
I partitioned the reps into 5/10/15 like normal, but everything was off from the start. I ran past the mile marker unfortunately which added a minute or so to my time. Then, I just wasn’t feeling it during the in gym portion. Finished in 37:13, which was disappointing as I was hoping for sub-35. Still, got it done!
Started off with 30 muscle-ups for time after I watched a colleague of mine and wanted to try his strategy.
Last time, I opened for sets of 5 on the minute. This time, I tried 3 reps every 30 seconds. I made it through 21 at maybe 3:15, right on pace. I ended up resting until 3:45 though and continued every 30 seconds. At 4:45, I went for my last set of 3 and missed my very last rep. 😔 Hopes back up and finished at 5:22 for a :58 second PR!
Then, I did the workout of the day:
3-6-8-10-12-10-8-6 reps for time of:
10 Cal Assault Bike after each full round.
Time: 14:43. Took a relatively leisurely pace because the AB felt tough! Only broke the set of 12 T2B (7/5).
