Monday 19/6/17

I could go right back into training…, just a little sore in my triceps, probably the ski erg. I had a meeting today at school, so I was not sure which class I will make but I was done earlier than expected, so weightlifting and afterwards I just did the workout from the reg. class. I did ghd sit ups instead of toes 2 bars because I ripped some of my fingers on the weekend…

weightlifting: SNATCH day (nth new here)
wod:
3 rds for time
30 ghd sit ups
30 mountain climbers
800 m run

This one hurt… Official box timecap was 15 min, nobody made that time. I decided to finish anyways and needed around 16:54. It was horrible exhausting, there was this one athlete chasing me all the time and I did not want her to pass me, she was a really good runner, I am quite sure the run did not bother her. I almost felt down… Good to be pushed but horrible on the other side as well.

Murh Murph Murph…

What a coincident we did Murph today during bodyweight class, 30 degrees by the way… It is Memorial in the US, CF boxes in the States mostly do this wod on that day. So I am not sure if it was planned or not.

I was thinking about going slower than usual because I was also signed in for the regular class and weightlifting (my usual triple Monday)… Well, did not work that well. I actually did not go too hard during the run and I slowed down the squats a bit. My push ups were kinda slow, also my pull ups should have gone better. Well I worked around 85-90 % most of the time. It took me 42:52 minutes. I still wanna have a under 40 minutes time one day, it is possible with rest and a little bit less heat and rest beforehand.

Afterwards I did the regular class but I slowed down and canceled weightlifting…

Snatch Day

Saturday Partner WOD

I just love my Saturday mornings at the box with my wod partner in crime. He is the perfect workout match… 🙂

Afterwards I decided to take a rest and did not go back to the gym: great coffee, yummy food and little bit sightseeing in Berlin…

Holidays in Portugal…

Finally, spring break in Berlin. I was sooooooooo looking forward too escape from the city. We booked a flight to Lisbon and rented a car. In Lisbon I went to Bakery CrossFit, a cool box in the middle of the city in an old house.

http://www.thebakerycrossfit.com/en/

One of the Icke members used to train there and is still good friends and workout partner with some of the coaches. The drop in was 15 Euro and I bought a nice shirt for another 10 Euro. There was no barbell involved in the wod I went to, it is always the same when I on vacation, mostly no barbells involved during a wod… 😉 Instead we did benchmark Nicole, it was the first time for me:

20 min amrap
400m run
max rep pull ups

When I am on vacation I am not 100% into training, so I am normally a bit less competitive and more on the relaxed mode, so my score of 103 pull ups is okay, I guess…

Sunday Hero Wod

Well I accidentally scaled because the box wrote lighter weights for women on the board than the hero workout actually has: 42.5 kg (they wrote 40kg) instead of 105 lbs. But because of the run it was challenging anyways, the C&J did feel light, I still could not really cycle them in big sets because I was out of breath from the running… 😉

“Abbate”
Run 1 mile
155 pound Clean and jerk, 21 reps
Run 800 meters
155 pound Clean and jerk, 21 reps
Run 1 Mile

At least our running distance was a bit too long… 😉

Afterwards I had a good breakfast and went to the box to do some more little stuff at the box

amrap 5 strict muscle ups (I got 21 or 22)
handstand walk

Monday 28/11

Finally back in the box and when I checked the programs I saw it is transition week…, damn…, So today’s wod was kinda no wod…, so I decided to do the bodyweight class before, which was running and because I am not good at it, I decided to take part, afterwards I did the class and weightlifting. Sounds like lots of stuff but actually was not… I miss open gym times at night…
