Hit the 5:30 p.m. class. Yay for going after work and not just skipping all together! It’s possible that Coach calling us out on facebook again today hit home for me and was what solidified my coming in.
Warm Up: The usual. Coach Shifu was leading the class today, which always results in some great conversation and commentary. He recently went skydiving and the beard (seriously kids, JUST like Shifu’s) made for an interesting video.
Mobility: Foam rolling, T spine with LX ball, hip mobility with green band.
The hip stuff was… er… hilarious. I mean, it was a good stretch and I got the point, but it’s always interesting to rub your lady bits all up on a band, and then “switch” with someone who does the same.
Man I hope they soak those things in sanitizer at least once a week.
400m run (or 500m row)
21 KB swings
12 ring dips
Time: 14:45 with row, 25 lb bell and green band on dip station
I can officially say, I like WOD’s with rowing. As painful at my foot injury is, its nice that my alternate activity is something that I enjoy and don’t completely suck at. I’m actually positive that I row 500m faster than I would run 400.
This was a challenge, and I was last to finish in the class, but it all felt great. My form stayed good throughout (I tend to get a little sloppy with my swings when I get tiered), so I was happy with that.
The only note to myself- I need the green band if I use the rings, but if I use a dip station I can definitely use a blue one instead. The dips were almost too easy until the last rep or two of every set.
I left last night without remembering my goals that I set up earlier this week, so I didn’t work on either skill. Doh! I will not make that mistake again, I won’t achieve them if I don’t work on them!
