CrossFit Week 4 Update

Radom Pics 091

I thought that I would take a different approach this week and journal this week as soon as I’m done with class.  This will allow me to provide you with a more accurate response to what I’m feeling.

Tonight our WOD (Workout of the day) was:

Warm up
300 meter row
30 meters of each
Gorilla walk
Duck walk
Stretching lunges
3 rounds
10 pass thru
30 second Sampson

Strength
20 minutes to work toward 1 rep max clean and jerk (got up to total of 40lbs with big bar)

Conditioning

“The Chief”

Max rounds in 3 minutes of:
135 pound Power cleans, 3 reps
6 Push-ups
9 Squats

Rest 1 minute complete 5 rounds (got up to total of 30lbs with big bar)

I have to admit there was a point where I wanted to toss in the towel and give up.  My arms were on fire and I was having a difficult time doing my cleans.  It was at that point that my coach came over and said ‘1 more, only 1 more’.  That’s all I needed.  That little extra boost kept me going to finish my set.  There are going to be times in life when you want to toss in the towel and just give up. Doesn’t matter if it’s with fitness, your career, a friendship or marriage. Anything worth while takes work, dedication and consistency.

Are you going to throw in the towel or push through?
