YESSSSS! I’m back!
I can’t even explain how psyched I am to be back at CrossFit. I celebrated with a Pug Push Press.
Last night’s class was packed. It was easily one of the biggest classes I’ve ever been in—and I loved every second of it. It was so great to see everyone and feel the energy of the group working out together. I had the biggest, goofiest smile on my face the entire time.
My box posts the WODs on their website the night before class, so I knew last night’s workout wouldn’t be too challenging, and I could take it easy if I needed to.
70%, 80%, 90%
*2-3 Warm-up sets prior to work sets
5 rounds for time of:
5 Strict L Pull-ups
10 Broad Jumps
L2: Strict Pull-ups
L1: 10 Band Assisted Pull-ups
I did 115 pounds on Back Squats and L1 for the WOD. I messed up my counting on the WOD and only did 5 sets of 5 Pull-ups (instead of 5 sets of 10 reps). I ended up finishing way before everyone else, so I just repeated the workout, so I could get in all of the Pull-ups (I just did extra Broad Jumps), and I finished in 10:11.
It was a great first workout back. I felt awesome during the entire class and didn’t once have to worry about any digestive “mishaps.”
On the way home from CrossFit, Mal said he was happy that I felt so good during the workout. He also congratulated me for not pooping my pants (he’s so sweet), which led to a conversation about embarrassing things that we’ve done at CrossFit and the gym, in general.
Just last week, Mal went to return his weight clips to the bucket on the floor where our box keeps them. Instead of just tossing them in, he bent down and slammed his forehead into a racked bar! He had the biggest goose egg on his forehead for the next few days. Obviously, he was totally fine, but he was pretty embarrassed for doing something so clumsy.
I tried to think of embarrassing things that I’ve done at the gym/CrossFit and most of them involve wardrobe malfunctions, like wearing two different sneakers, my pants inside-out, or my shirt on backwards. This type of stuff actually happens quite frequently to me. Derp. I couldn’t think of anything really embarrassing though (even though I know I’ve done plenty of dumb stuff).
***Edited to add: I just remembered an embarassing gym moment: when I knocked over 20 PVC pipes at CrossFit One and made a huge commotion trying to pick them up. I looked like such a tool!
Mal and I had big plans to make balsamic chicken for dinner last night, but when we got home from CrossFit, neither of us felt like cooking, so we threw together turkey and cheddar cheese sandwiches with steamed carrots, sprinkled with truffle salt, on the side. Boring, but it did the trick.
Question of the Day
What’s the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you at the gym or in a fitness class?
