I like doing the program because it is so much more intense than the regular wod but it also takes sooooooo long. I am sure you are not supposed to do other stuff before, hahaha. But rigth now I need more the vlume to get back to my old form instead of the intensity, here I just have to listen to my body.

Well this was a fun fun, not so for my partner… 😉 In the first morning class are often not so many people, so u don’t have a big choice. But, it is okay to workout with someone who is not on the same level than you, as long as you can have a good trainings session. If the breaks in between are too big and you have to wait too long, it makes no sense because you won’t get your own workout done… They guy really tried hard to stay on pace, he used my weights and kept the rest time for me kinda shortly. I still wonder how I would have looked afterwards if I had done it with a partner on my level or higher… ohohohoho!

After a nice coffee and cinnamon roll breakfast I went back to the gym to do my afternoon session, the misfits athletics program. This was hard, mostly the first wod with the OHS took me forever…

Thursday – Assault Bike Test

Today I had the opportunity to go to the 7 am class which was perfect. I woke up early, felt fit and awake and decided to go. It was a nice and warm summer day. Right now the sunrise is early in Berlin, so it really did not feel like early morning anyways.

In the late afternoon me and the other girl who is gonna be in our team for the French Throwdown went to CrossFit Aorta to try the Assault Bike in combination with box jumps over and 50kg overhead squats.

Well, what can I say – I totally underestimated the impact of the bike – I did 21 cal, moved forward to try the box jumps overs, heard my friend saying sth like “Be careful with your first jump!” – was wondering about her advice, jumped and almost felt down the hard way… I did not have my legs under control. I did not jump high enough and almost felt. This was one of my weirdest CrossFit moments – hahahaha – I had no control of my lower body. Good we have practiced the combination of assault bike and box jump overs…

Back at home I packed my stuff for Paris, our plane will start at 3:35 pm tomorrow.
