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.

Part 1

7 rounds of:

  • 7 Burpee Box Jump Overs, 24″
  • 3 Bar Muscle-ups

Time: 6:56

Part 2

2 rounds of:

  • 35 Med Ball Cleans, 20 lbs
  • 15 Push Jerks, 115 lbs

Time: 6:39

Part 3

3 rounds of:

  • 25 Kettlebell Swings, 53 lbs
  • 15 Toes-to-bars
  • 15 Ring Dips

Time: 12:05

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.

First workout back from Austin. Felt a little rusty. Still haven’t nailed the rope climb technique. Should have done 3 per round. Did get 4/5 sets of DU’s unbroken. Did all cleans unbroken.
