Yesterday's CrossFit workout and #'s 29 and 30

I heart Sunday CrossFit workouts. Can I just say that right now? Sunday is so relaxed. I don't have to rush out the door to work, I don't have to be up at 5am to hit my workout, there is a great group of people, I love it! So yesterday's Sunday fun was right up my alley, albeit, I was slightly worried about it since it involved hang squat cleans and I'm still bruised from Elizabeth. But nonetheless I was excited. Here's what yesterday's fun looked like:

Warm Up- 35 minutes hang squat clean work
Work up heavy 5 reps
95x5(New PR)
100x5(Newer PR)
110x2(Newest PR)

AMRAP 30 min
9 HSC to PP (65 lbs)
9 chins
9 burpees (EEEEEEWWWW!)

I think you can see how that set worked for me. :) I was pretty psyched. I had a great recovery to hit rep 2 on 110, but bottom line is that by the time I got there, I was just smoked. I think 105 would have been a better jump but we were running low on time, and I just loaded it up and went for it. Hey, no guts, no glory right? Jerry said I was the first woman to squat clean 100 lbs in the class, which is kind of cool, but I don't understand how that's possible. Adrienne, Stacey, Andrea, and Keturah are all wicked strong, and I don't think it's possible that I got there first. But for now, I guess it stands.

After our work up set, Jerry gave us a short smoker with some cleans to presses, and after those squats man, I was burnt. But nonetheless hit 6 full rounds with our grandfather clause. I was hurtin' and really really smelly after this one. It looks short, but it was a bear. All in all, it was a fun day to hit the blue room. I like throwing weights around. :)

Ah... yes... but let's be honest, you're not reading to hear about my hang squat cleans... you just want to know what #'s 29 and 30 are don't you? Alright... *sniff* fine.... :P Again, these two come courtesy of CFOT... but remember... if you have suggestions... my top 30 is open to new submissions... :)

#30 In an effort to eat healthy so you can nail a few extra reps/pounds at your next workout, you decide to have yogurt for breakfast. In your morning haste, you drop the yogurt in the *ehem* area on your nice black pants. You then walk around the rest of the day with some suspicious looking white stains on the front of your pants in your *ehem* region and are forced to deal with all the suspicious stares of your coworkers. Oh for the love of CrossFit!

#29 While your wife is busy using your car, you are determined to find a way to get your new weights into your CrossFit room for your morning workout. You resort to using a wheelbarrow, only to get pulled over by the cops because you "look suspicious" pushing a wheelbarrow full of weights. (Apparently at 5am weights in a wheelbarrow closely resemble a dead body)

I hope you have enjoyed my Mindless Ramblings! :)

A very special welcome to all my new Kult members!!! :) I seriously think I'm going to have to design a t-shirt... :)

I love #30..."ahem." Darn yogurt! And way to be smelly. I sometimes think I blow my students away with my smell since I usually do CF before school. Who needs showers anyway?

BTW - beware of the yogurt! Jerry posted a great link on Jerry Hill Fitness (blog) about the sugar content. It's actually kind of gross. I can't look at the yogurt aisle the same way...
