“You can’t spell legendary without leg day.” -coach Loree
I felt rushed during the squats, so I don’t feel I did my best. I could have gone heavier. But, the 6th set of 6, definitely hurt. So, I guess I ‘saved’ the set in the end.
WOD:My hands. Ooof. I went pretty conservative during the WOD. More of a slow-and-steady pace. I want to workout with more volume this week, so I’m dialing back the intensity. We’ll see how it goes.
My plan to not go 100% yesterday didn’t really help. Sore as he**! My abs! Oh, we didn’t do abs yesterday, you say? Right. Heavy squats, pullups, pushups, some gymnastic mobility…no, none of that uses abs.
Anyway, today’s WOD:
The KB bench press wasn’t too difficult, but I went a little lighter since I’m sore. I think tomorrow is going to HURT.
The WOD was strict technique work and SHOCKER…was hard. I didn’t think that a minute of work, with a minute rest, for several minutes would hurt so much. But, it did. Welcome to CF. Our score was based on how many total pullups we did.
Last Friday I took one of K’s friends & old co-worker from Lake Placid (she was here for work) to the Incline. She lives at 3,000ft, hikes often and is training for IMLP. Oh, and she’s 23. Ooof. She did just fine. Despite taking time to chat, talk to other climbers, and take pictures, I finished 5min faster than the last 2 times! Whoo! I’m still REALLY slow, but I can see progress. I was faster this time and didn’t feel like I pushed it harder. I will feel more comfortable pushing it like a harder run once I get to the Dr. and get a new inhaler Rx. Until then, it’s a good strength day and time on the trails!
After the Incline we went and rode the Terror-dactyl, a super-touristy ride. It’s a slingshot type thing over a canyon. It was awesome.
This isn’t us (obviously), but we didn’t want to pay for the GoPro video that’s just a face shot. Stupid. Anyway, the canyon was fun!
