Tuesday Oct 21st

Strength:  Hang Power Snatch
3 reps x 7, rest 2 min

55lbs (10lb weight increase)

WOD:  "Helen"
3 Rounds
400 meter run
21 kettle bell swings #53/35
12 pull ups

Time was 10:50, 35lb kettle bell.

My pull ups were broken all three rounds.  I should have used a band with more resistance for help since we were doing so many reps and the rounds were to be unbroken.  Now I know!  My time would have been better.  I have the running and swings down, now I really need to work on my pull ups.  Hang power snatches are also hard for me.  Today the trainer, Kyle, did a really great job at going over the movements and form, so I was able to improve my form and increase my weight today.

I am starting this blog to keep track of my WOD's in Crossfit.  I haven't been able to effectively keep track of them, and I have heard that blogs are a good way.  I don't have an Iphone, so I can't use my box's app.  I go to North Rim Crossfit in Chico, CA and I just finished my 8th week.  I am absolutely addicted to it!  I turned 40 on Dec. 31st last year and my goal was to be in as good of shape at 40 as I was at 30.  That goal hasn't been accomplished, but I am hoping I am close in the next couple months.  I have already made significant improvments and now that I am doing Crossfit, I keep that goal in mind, but I have much larger ones we well as I see what can be accomplished with Crossfit.  I don't know what this blog will turn into, but as I am learning more about Crossfit, clean and healthy eating, and how to make the most out of my workouts, I can see this growing in a lot of different ways.
