CrossFit night out was a lot of fun! A group of about twenty people from our box met at King’s where we enjoyed some cocktails, sang some karaoke, and got our bowl on. (I bowled an impressive 58.) I had a blast, but I was a bad blogger and only took three photos. Here’s one of them:
Clearly, the CrossFit 781 crew is a fun bunch.
I wasn’t planning to go to CrossFit this morning, but when I checked the WOD online when I woke up, it said it would include a “surprise ending,” which, of course, intrigued me, so I decided to go.
I wolfed down a couple of waffles with peanut butter spread on top for breakfast.
And then took Murphy for his morning walk before heading to CrossFit.
Today’s WOD was a partner workout. We started with finding our 1 rep max for Thrusters. I worked my way up to 90 pounds, but my team managed to get 95 pounds. (Yay, Kim!) Then, we each sprinted 800 meters and finished off the workout with “Karen,” which was the surprise ending. “Karen” is 150 Wall Balls, but, thankfully, they were split between partners. (Not the “surprise ending” you were expecting? Me either! Haha!)
With a Partner:
1) Thruster: 25 minutes for both of you to find your 1 rep max.
Rest 5 minutes
2) 1 mile run: Both you and your partner will sprint 800 meters for total time.
Score= Total weight/Scoring for 1 mile run time will start at 1000 points for total time of 5:00 and every 10 seconds after that will be less 25 points. Weight total and time total will be your cumulative score.
Rest 5 minutes
3) Surprise Ending =)
Our team ended up doing pretty well. We didn’t have the highest score, but we didn’t have the lowest score either. Our “Karen” time was 5:34, which we were pretty happy with!
After CrossFit, I showered up and threw together a salad for lunch. In the mix: greens, tomatoes, green bell pepper, pickles, truffle oil, and a scoop of hummus.
Part two of lunch was a smoothie made with frozen banana, strawberries, chopped kale, and almond milk, vanilla protein powder.
I’m off to run some errands and then Mal and I are meeting up with some friends for sushi this evening.
I hope you’re having a wonderful Saturday!
What’s on your agenda for tonight?
