Keep calm and let the bodies hit the floor!  I know this is a Drowning Pool song, but it reminds me of burpees - letting your body hit the floor.  Which probably tells you what's part of today's CrossFit, right?  Yup!

Last night was the WORST I have slept in a while...between my thighs and knees throbbing, and my sleep shirt and panties twisting up - it was just awful!  Note to self - buy new panties.  It's a good thing that I need to buy smaller panties, I've actually needed to for a good bit now.  I just haven't.  Well, the last couple of "run" days it seemed like I was spending as much time pulling up my panties as I was running!  It's a VERY uncomfortable feeling to be running or doing box jumps and you feel your panties slowly sliding down your butt!  What a problem to have though!  I mean, it IS a much better wearing something too big than it is something too small, right?  YES, it is!  The only reason everything kept getting twisted up is because I kept tossing and turning because of the aches in my legs.  You can be sure I'll take some aspirin or something before bedtime from now on.  In my defense - I wasn't sore when I went to bed, just super sleepy.  These workouts have worn me out for the past couple of weeks. Normally I'm up until 11:00 or 11:30, but I have been going to bed around 10:00 or 10:30 - I even went to bed at 9:30 one night last week!  I went to bed at 10:00 last night and had no trouble falling asleep (I usually don't).  I'm one of those that goes to bed, takes a couple of deep breaths, and I'm out.  Honey-buns lays there for a good bit before falling asleep.  He said it amazes him how quickly I can fall asleep.  I've always said that I don't go to bed until I'm sleepy, therefor I fall asleep very fast!

Enough of that - back to today's workout.  I'm surprised (and kinda glad, but definitely surprised!) it's NOT a run, I just knew it would be run day!

   10 push-ups
   20 wall ball w/10 lb ball
   30 knees to elbows
   40 power cleans w/20 lbs
   50 burpees
   60 sumo deadlift high pulls w/20 lbs

March Madness:
   30 squats
   20 burpees

I know I won't be doing extra burpees, so I'll just do the squats from today's Madness.  Looks like a great workout!  I don't know why, but I love the workouts that have lots of multiple exercises like this, as opposed to the ones that do "rounds".  It's probably because I used to lose count on my rounds.  Not anymore, I finally crumpled up some paper making paper "balls" that I use to count my rounds, but my cat (the one laying on my weight bench in the photo I shared awhile ago) has discovered where I kept my paper ball counters, and she has absconded with some.  I started with 8, was down to 6 earlier this week, and noticed yesterday that I now have 5.  I don't know what's she's done with them.  I searched the floor in my "gym", thinking she was just batting them around, but nope!  Nothing.  I need to get something bigger that she can't pick up with her mouth.  :)
21:30 -  Not the best time, but I can say I let my body hit the floor 50 times!!  lol  Great workout!  Great ending to the week!

Push-ups - 10?  Easy, peasy!

Wall Ball w/4 lb ball - 20?  Okay, but I felt the burn in my legs from all of the leg work we've done this week!

Knees-to-Elbows - 30?  BIG improvement!  I'm not only getting my knees up to my underbreasts, but I can do 6-9 at a time without having to stop.  The main reason I would have to stop is because my palms were burning!  My bars have padding, but I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.  I can't wear gloves with the padding on there because they get all twisted.  Anyway, still proud of my improvement on the bar!  :)

Burpees - 50?  Are you freaking kidding me?  You would think after doing burpees almost daily for the March Madness workout that I could drop 50 with no troubles, right?  Think again!  Put it this way - I started doing burpees at just a little over 7 minutes on my stopwatch/timer.  I finished doing burpees at just a little of 19 minutes.  Twelve-plus minutes on burpees!  BUT....I DID THEM ALL!  Not only that, but I did them all the non-beginner way (without my step).  SO, very, VERY proud of that!  :D

Sumo deadlift high pulls - 60 - MUCH harder than I thought they would be.  I started feeling the burn around #15, but pushed to 20 before shaking it out.  After that I could only do 10 at a time and the last 5 were U-G-L-Y!!!  But again, ALL done!

So glad it's Friday and I can say I worked my butt off (or at least I hope I did) this week!  Y'all have a great weekend.  :)
