RECAP: Georgia Half Marathon Weekend

One of the final thoughts before I fell asleep on Saturday night while praying was about Conway.  I knew, if I could get through Conway, I could get trough anything.

I was right.

That’s not to discount Atlanta, Georgia by any means.  It was the hilliest course I have ever been on,far worse than Conway.

Yeah, you read me right!

WOD: CrossFit 09.01.2012

I had special visitors at my gym this morning! Met up with @ourtimetochange and @maeinanutshell at the alternate location (my CF has 2 different gyms). They are visiting my city this weekend!

Strength: Deadlifts

4 x 10: 103#, 123#, 133#, 153#

Then tried for 1RM – managed to lift up 203# about to my knees, but still don’t have it. Thanks to @maeinanutshell for pushing me to try!

WOD:

50-40-30-20-10 reps of:

  • Squats
  • Hand release push-ups
  • Sit-ups
  • Rowing (distance = reps x 10, so 500, 400, etc.)

Got called out for being a “happy rocker” on my push-ups. Now I know that your legs need to stay engaged and hips off the ground on the release. Really made these tough! My time was 33:45, mostly because of the push-ups. I could start with 8-10, but then I’d be all 2s and 1s to finish out each set. Still did them strict, though. Arms are jello.

I really hate rowing.

@ourtimetochange was unimpressed by my CF’s WOD, so we had to create extra challenges for him. Weighted push-ups it is! Here he is with 85# on his back (oh, um, I mean 135# haha):

In the end, I defeated him:

I have had so much fun hanging out with these guys this weekend!
