I had one week off and we decided to do a three day trip to Poland, it is about a 3-4 hour ride to Kolberg, a town right on the Baltic Sea. There is even a gym that is doing wods and CF orientated stuff but they are not an official affiliate because the yearly fee you have to pay is really expensive for them. the drop in was only 7 Euro and the program and the gym were really cool. The weather was perfect, we walked along the beach, rented bikes and cruised around…
We went down south by car. And I did one more wod on the coast at CrossFit Albufeira. The town itself is not very nice, lots of tourists and cheesy souvenir shops, too many not so good looking restaurants and so many hotels and ugly buildings right next to the beach. Our little hotel was 5km away in a smaller place, that was a bit nicer and not so full with all this tourist shops and restaurants.
The box itself was pretty cool, behind the main road and a petrol station, not too big and too fancy, seemed like a real box. On our day there was more fun team workout than a serious wod, which was fine, it was Easter Saturday. We worked in teams of 5 and did different exercises as a team, 5 minutes per station, one minute rest in between. The class took a while, even we did not workout that hard, but they just took their time… ;D
Afterwards I tried their Rogue pegboard which was fun but also very tricky, I managed to go all the way up and down…, yeah.
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.
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
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…
I left Berlin on Saturday for a longer weekend trip with my parents. We flew to Sardigna and even they do have boxes there I decided not to go, take some days off and enjoy family time. So the only thing I did were some handstands. 🙂
