Welcome to Portland/Oregon

This became one of my fav cities – I def. would move here: a nice city,with lots of cool options. Everything easy reachable by bike, lots of healthy shops, great coffee and an awesome nature around it… 

There are a couple of CF boxes in town. We decided to go to CF Stumptown, they were close to our (shabby) motel and had a Sumday morning wod. Drop in fee was 20$ incl a shirt, not a bad deal- unfortunately they had only big sizes for girls because the reginals were in Portland and lots of people droppid in. Well, now I have a new night shirt…

I checked the websit before, they post the wods every day and I already saw that Sunday is benchmark day, which is nice. At night I was thinking about wods I don’t wanna do, and Cindy came into my mind. Because it is a bodyweight wod which I don’t like dueing vacations because I can do them without a box. I prefer doing sth with barbells because I am travelling and we don’t have so many options to workout. On the other hand Cindy is a workout you have to push all the time because sou don’t need to rest. And doing that during vacation, well…, it sucks!

Well guess what happened? 😦 CINDY it was…

So I pushed like crazy…., and I PR’d… 23 rounds plus13 reps… Kinda good for vacation. I had good transitions, the pull up bar was good, not too high and I did push ups and aur squats right beneath the bar…

I was so done after the first wod… My friend, who is really strong and fast was right behind me. I finished my first round right in front of her and this kept me motivated to push even harder. The shoulder to overhead are not my strongest movement anyways, so amrap 2 was horrible, the barbell felt like 5kg heavier, I could not really cycle a lot of reps. Two weeks ago when I did a partner metcon with a friend of mine, we had to do 21 reps, using 35kg. This weight was fine to do one set unbroken and then go for 10/11 reps and 5-6. Well, at least I did it. Work on your weknesses… 😉
