Why do I CrossFit?  So I only have to make one trip carrying in the groceries.  You know?  This is SO true for me!  I will pack those bags together and carry them all in!  lol

I am SO glad it is Friday.  This has been one of the strangest weeks - as far as schedules go and I'm really glad it's done after today.  I am also very sore from yesterday's workout.  You wouldn't think what we did yesterday would make you this sore, but it certainly did that for me!!  Then again - it could be because I've only worked out twice this week - Tuesday and yesterday.  That's probably what it is.  I've got to get back to five days - GOT TO!!  This will be the first summer that I've worked out consistently.  I'm just going to have to make sure I do my workouts every day - no excuses.  :)

CaliFit Mamas:
   5 Rounds for time
      12 Dead-lifts w/40-60 lbs
      20 Push-ups
      12 Power snatches w/20 lbs
      20 Knees to elbows

Brand X:
   Rest day

Looks like I'm doing CaliFit today!  It doesn't look too bad and hopefully I'll remember to do FIVE rounds today.  I still can't believe I didn't see that yesterday.  I've seen other people post that they read the workout incorrectly and only do one or two rounds when it called for more and I kept thinking to myself "Really?  How could you not see that?"  lol - Now, I'm one of them!  I get it now...I really do!  :)
28:43...BUT I added a run to each round.  I planned on running 100 meters every round, but once I hit the 100 meter mark on my treadmill, I noticed I was at like 53 or 54 seconds, so I decided to make it 1 minute run segments instead.  Then, at the end of the last round, I was only 1.5 blocks away from being an even 600 meters, so I just finished it out.

28:43 - total time, of which 5:15 was my treadmill time

Dead-lifts with 50 lbs - no problem with these.  I didn't have to break them up at all, but they were getting tougher on that last round!

20 Push-ups - I did the first two rounds without stopping.  I had to stop after 15 on round 3, 14 on round 4, and 15 on round 5.

Power snatches were with a 19 lb dumbbell - one arm at a time.  I screwed up again today - I thought I was supposed to do 20 power snatches, so I did 10 each arm, each round.  No problem with these, but discovered how much weaker my left arm is during the last round!

Knees to elbows were on a bar, and they were knees to boobs.  This was the other part of my screw up - I thought I only had to do 12 of these, so that's what I did.  Was very impressed with the strength of my abs bringing my knees to my boobs the first round.  Of course, it went down hill from there.  Those were extremely hard on the last round!!

1 minute run segments at 4.3 speed and 2.0 incline.  VERY proud of these - I did not hold on to the treadmill bars/handles AT ALL!!!  Woot-woot!!  It's the little things, isn't it?

GREAT workout!  I'm good and sweaty!!  :)  Y'all have a good weekend!!
