The CrossFit Diaries: Terrible Tuesday

Cover picture is of me from the Charity Challenge. Bar going up is a little crooked, probably because I’m 1)tired and 2) have shoulders that are a little off from taking a beating in football and hockey.

After a great Monday, I was looking forward to what Tuesday would bring. I was in for quite the workout:

Strength/Skill:

4 sets of:

Strict Press x 5 reps + Push Press x 5 reps

Workout of the Day:

4 Rounds for time:

3 Wall Walks

15 Ring Dips/Push Ups

30 KB Snatches

*12 minute time cap*

The press was good and it was nice to work them, as it had been some time since I had really done so. Got up to 165lb, which was enough. I always have some trouble with shoulder presses because of how long my arms are (it’s a really long movement for me) and having messed up both shoulders through sports a little. Still, it was good work and it felt good to get through it.

Then I realized that the WOD was like, all shoulders/tris. Woof. It was brutal. Only one guy in the class finished the whole workout. I got through three rounds. It was brutal. The wall walks and ring dips/push ups after doing presses were brutal. Just absolutely demolished my shoulders. It was so tough that they actually adjusted the workout after my class and removed the wall walks. So yeah, it was tough.

Didn’t make it to workout this morning. Was just way to sore and tired (slept like crap last night, just couldn’t fall asleep), so no workout today, but I’ll be back in tomorrow.

Looking at a 4 day week this week and then some vacation next week. I’ll work out, but probably not CrossFit, so it’ll be a nice change.

Stay classy.
