“Oh, wait. I’m both of those things!”

Marriage equality. What a wonderful day!

I attended the 11:45 session led by Coach Marni. Seven years into CrossFit and I’m still learning valuable lessons.

Metcon (5 Rounds for reps)

3 Rounds
– Row for calories
– Wall ball shots (20 & 10)
– Power cleans (75)
– Thrusters (75)
– Power snatches (75)
Complete each activity for 1 minute; rest 1 minute between rounds.

Your score is the LOWEST score for any activity. For example, if you completed 25, 24, & 25 wall ball shots your score would be 24 for that activity.

Light weight, high intensity, ample rest. Who programs this shit? He must be a genius.

I went out too easy the first round. I completed 19 calories and could’ve possibly completed 20 or even 21 first and remaining rounds. I did indeed complete 19 calories each round, with seconds to spare the second and last rounds.

I completed 20 wall ball shots the first round in unbroken reps of 15 and 20. There was still 15 seconds remaining on the clock. I probably should’ve completed at least 2 or 3 more reps, for I completed 20 unbroken reps the remaining 2 rounds with more than 20 seconds remaining in both rounds. Dammit. This was my biggest blunder.

I did a great job with pacing for power cleans and thrusters, completing 17 reps each round. As it was a struggle to complete all reps the last round, 17 seemed to be the magical number.

I blundered once again with power snatches in that i completed 17 reps the first 2 rounds but had to struggle to complete 16 the last round. Yup, live and learn.

My total score was 90, and while I’m pleased with that score I could’ve and should’ve completed more wall ball shots.

Whilst cooling down I said to Sammie, “What I lack in good looks I made up for in endurance. Oh, wait, I have both of those things!”

I’m a funny person, folks. A funny, funny person.
