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…

I had to hurry to the box right after work because I will go on a weekend trip tonight, Vienna here we come. I did the 12pm class but because of my foot and now my left arm as well, I had to modify the wod. It really pissed me off because it was a good one…

Testweek – Monday 29/2/16

Well right now I am not the biggest fan of testing my progress and going up to 1 RMs. Okay, I never like it… But during the open, well…, even worse 😀 I am also not seeing a lot of progress with my lifts and weights right now, I’ll test some but not all of the days. So I was pretty happy I could join the bodyweight class instead of the wod, it was a nice sweaty workout… 🙂

It was great seeing old friends again and training with them. I am happy to be back in Berlin… 🙂

WODs 1/4/14

WOD 22/3/14

Another benchmark Sunday but not manageable with RX weight, 24kg Kettlebell for girls…, now way… It was shoulder and arm wod in combination with technique, not very fun actually but I think good for working on strength and skills.

I used 12kg KB for the get ups and the squats and 20kg KB for the swings, pain in the ass…. :O Lol as you can see from the results some people did not write their weights. I think no one was using RX weights, the girls except me and another one used between 4-8 kg for the squats and get ups and 12kg/16kg for the swings, lol all the early finishing girls did, that explains the good time as well 😉

Afterwards I did a bit weightlifting but was more focusing on getting ready for repeating the 14.4 open wod, my goal is to hit the 180, I m not getting a muscle up done but I wanna finish the cleans. I am a bit scared because it is very exhausting. My rowing is not very good and the cleans are really heavy at the end, so fingers crossed for another try…
