13.4…Ouch, My Pride!

April 3, 2013

Well, 13.4 was the beginning of the end 😦  It was simply more than I was capable of and although that made me sad, I tried to make the best of the workout.  I also thought about scaling the weight from the beginning so I could just have a good workout, but all of my friends encouraged me to give it a try.

I had so much hope that I could actually do it!  Alas, I was able to clean 95 lbs (a PR for me!) but just couldn’t get it over my head for the jerk!

So I dropped it down to 85 lbs and was able to achieve another PR!


AND BAM!  Not pretty at all, but I’ll take it!  I tried 95 lbs a few more times, but no cigar, so I decided to move on to Toes to Bar.

I have been able to do kipping TTB a few times, but just couldn’t get the rhythm.  I was happy to be done but wish I could have sweated more.

I had fueled well for this workout because we went for an office lunch to Olive!  I finally got to try the Perfect Paleo Platter 🙂

It was awesome 🙂 A sunny side up egg, 2 slices of bacon, a grassfed burger, roasted veggies and avocado.  All of my favorite things!

Later, a snack 🙂

These Uber bars are awesome and so tasty!

I wonder what 13.5 will bring??? Are you doing the CrossFit Open?  What are your thoughts on these workouts?

      I used to hate runny eggs because I expected them to taste like cheese 🙂 Once I got past that notion, I’ve fallen in love with them too. Thanks for the congrats!
