So, last week was the week that I finally (really and truly) scaled back at CrossFit. Up until now, I’ve pretty much been able to stick to my usual workouts with a few exercise modifications here and there, but now I am really feeling pregnant, especially now that I am officially in my 3rd trimester (what what!). My belly is big, awkward, and uncomfortable in certain positions, so I’ve finally decided to take it down a notch”¦ a small notch, but still a notch! That said, here’s a recap of last week’s workouts!

Sunday: Off

Monday: CrossFit

Oh, “Jackie”… it’s one of the hardest CrossFit workouts in my opinion. I personally think it’s worse than “Fran” because of the rowing and how much longer it takes you to finish, but it’s still a “fun” one. Well, it’s not so fun when you’re pregnant, but I still survived it”¦ slowly! Haha!

1000m row
50 Thrusters, 45#
30 Pull-ups

I scaled down the weight for the Thrusters to 35 pounds, but I did all of the pull-ups unassisted. I was the last person in class to finish, but, hey, I did all of the pull-ups, and I was pretty pumped about it! I finished in 12:21.

Tuesday: Off

Wednesday: CrossFit

I really liked this workout! I love ascending rep counts for a little something different, but, of course, they’re brutal!

For this workout, I scaled my weight to 65 pounds for the Power Cleans and did Squat Thrusts instead of Burpees for the Burpee Box Jumps on a 20” box. Jumping is definitely getting more challenging, but I take each jump slow and steady. I usually take an extra step closer to the box before I jump, just to make sure I don’t trip. I finished 14 + 4 for this workout.

“Anna Mae”
Perform the following two movements in an ascending ladder, by 2:
Power Cleans (135, 95)
Burpee Box Jumps (24, 20)

L3: (115, 75)
L2: (95, 55)
L1: (75, 45), Box Jumps (no Burpee @ 20, 15)

This workout will begin with 2 PC and 2 BBJ, 4 PC and 4 BBJ, 6 PC and so on”¦ Continue adding two reps every round until the clock runs out. Score = highest round + any extra reps.

Thursday: Spinning

I went to an hour-long spinning class with Kerrie. I definitely felt those box jumps from the day before when we were doing hills. Holy quad burn!

Friday: CrossFit

Our box programmed Open WOD 14.2 for class, so I did my first (scaled) 2014 CrossFit Open workout.



Chest-to-bar pull-ups just weren’t happening for me””I mean, they’re hard enough without an extra 28+ pounds on your body””so I did regular (unassisted) pull-ups instead. I did the Overhead Squats as prescribed (65 pounds) and finished 37 reps, just 3 shy of making it to the next 3-minute interval. Oh, well. It was still fun to participate in the Open!

Saturday: Off

CrossFit friends: How did 14.2 go for you? Tough WOD, right!?
