Last night they released WOD 15.1. It wound up being two WODS, the first an AMRAP for 9min and then a 1 RM clean & jerk under 6min. 15min total time.
As I stated before I decided to do the Open scaled. Today’s 15.1 was
15 hanging knee raises
10 deadlift 38kg
5 snatches 38kg
I have said it before and I will say it again, anyone who leads an active life really needs to find a someone they can trust to help them keep their body going; a massage therapist, a physical therapist or a naprapath.
Over two years ago I was introduced to Leon Hobro from Dynamic Training & Rehab. He kept my body going through my IM training and has been a big part in my return to training and my new goals with SwimRun this summer.
Starting to get nervous about my first Crossfit competition. It’s only three days, My only real goal is to not be last.
This past Saturday I was given a tip about body position and can now add Chest to bars as an exercise I can do it they show up on a WOD. Muscle-ups and DU are still not possible, YET.
Next Thursday the first WOD in The Open will be published. After looking at last years WODs I realize that it means I only have 9 days to learn how do double unders (jump rope) and muscle ups. There is a big risk they will be apart of some WOD. If they are in beginning I’m not going to do well at all.
For nearly four years I have been sitting on a tattoo design, waiting for the right time to get it inked. It was a fun process. I got in contact with an artist Jeff from Pirates Ink Tattoo through my brother. I told him I wanted two Choi in a yin-yang and that it was to be a cover up. After just a day or two I got this sketch.
Life in the Provencher house would be so much easier with one stay at home parent who didn’t work or workout, or if we had two cars, but it would not be as fun 😉 I love that Jeanette wants to workout and has her four days a week.
After a shortened workweek because of being home with Iris and Viola on Wednesday and Thursday it was Friday as usual for us. Well not as usual, Jeannette’s last appointment canceled so to save time she went food shopping while I got in my Friday Crossfit workout in. We pick up the girls on the way home and then shortly after Jeanette takes Viola to swimming and my and the other two prepare tacos. Cozy Friday night at home with everyone happy.
When I travel with work or catch up with an old friend through Facebook I always get asked “How was it moving to Sweden?” I moved here nearly 14 years ago, 16 February 2001. I made a few friends and learned the language by April 2002. But it wasn’t until the summer of 2005 that I finally could appreciate the Swedish system. That summer Lily was born. Total cost of the pregnancy check-ups and delivery, ZERO!! Yeah, you read that correctly. From conception to birth having a baby in Sweden was 100% free. Lily is almost 10 yrs old and we’ve only had to pay for a few prescription meds. It’s been the same for all three girls.
So yesterday was my first meet of the year. A few of my swimmers and I traveled south to the Skåne District Championships for Masters. I am still out of shape and I have yet to start training for anything other than freestyle, but I signed up to swim 50m of all four strokes.
Compared to Swedish Nationals in November, this time I was mentally prepared for slow times.The size of my belly and the lack of time in the water this fall/winter is very similar to when I got back in the pool in 2006. My times also reflect this.
