Cindy and Race Recap by Photo

WOD:
Cindy
AMRAP 20 Mins
5 Pull Ups (Green Band)
10 Push Ups (Competition Style)
15 Squats (To Med Ball)
Finished 10.6 Rounds

 

Last time we did Cindy we had deadlifts every 3 minutes and I finished 8 rounds. So…I’m not so sure this is an improvement. We also did kettlebell swings instead of pull ups at that time because the class was so large. However, I will take 10 rounds!

 

I got an email today saying my race photos were ready. I’m always nervous to look at the photos because they never seem to turn out very well. Typically, this is because I’m pooped and forget to smile when I see the camera. Well, these weren’t too shabby!

 

The race begins:

The big “hill” (aka…bridge) between mile 9 and 10. If you look closely, you’ll see Clara in blue behind me:

And finally…heading for the finish line. Look at that concentration! hahaha:

Tonight’s WOD was “Cindy”. Basically, AMRAP for 20 minutes of: 5 Kettlebell Swings (35#, was pull ups but didn’t have space), 10 Push Ups, 15 Squats and every 2 minutes we had to do 3 Deadlifts (95#). I was a little concerned about the 35# bar for the kettlebell swings, but with there only being 5 it wasn’t too bad. The deadlifts got a little heavy, but I was able to work out a nice pace where I just tapped the floor then lifted again. I was sweating like a pig!!

We started the day with practicing the Muscle Ups again. AJ was almost able to pull himself all the way up on his first try on the high rings. We also had 10 kips in the warm up. I didn’t do too well. My grip grew fatigued a lot sooner than I wanted it to. Eventually I’ll get it.

I ended up with 8 complete rounds. I was pooped by the end!! It was a good workout.
