So they had problems with registering scores from WoD 1 and extended them through Sunday.
With a five day trip coming up I decided to give both 1 & 2 another try. So Thursday afternoon I make my way to Crossfit Växjö.
After a short warm-up and technique training I set up for WoD 1: 3 min bar facing burpee jump over followed by 9 min 1 RM clean & jerk.
Last week I managed 39 burpees and only 70kg. Last night 43 burpees and a new PB 90 kg C&J! I moved up from nearly 200 to just under top 100 for WoD 1.
I took about 15 min to set up WoD 2:
20 min AMRAP
21 cal row
7 OHS 34kg
then I was determined to go out hard. Earlier in the week I managed 8 rounds and 3 reps. Averaged 2:25/round easy and constant. Yesterday I went out hard, maybe too hard. First round under 2:00. By the fourth round my times are slipping. I’m at 8:35. By 17:05 I’ve done seven rounds. I manage to push through round eight and as quick as I can start round nine. As the row machine flashes 12 cal the clock chimes. All that extra work for a mere 9 reps. But it seems as if those final 9 reps might actually be the difference in me being able to finish in the to 30% instead of bottom.
