6 a.m. class to start my birthday off right! I had sent coach a text on Friday requesting either burpees or Cindy. He told me I was crazy and there was no effing way we were doing Cindy, but YAY I got my burpees!
Warm Up: Usual stuff. There was some talk of me doing birthday burpees while everyone counted for me, but that wasn’t going to fly. I’m a team effort or none at all kinda girl thank-you-very-much.
SWOD: Press 5×5
1×10@ 33 warm up
1×5 @68 PR
YAY! I have been stuck at 63 lbs forever on my strict press, but no more. I admit, the last 2 of the last set were hideous, but I’m really happy that I’m building more strength over head.
It’s also amazing how just 5 lbs over head feels like half an elephant when there’s no push in the mix.
3:00 to run 400m (row 500)
Max burpees with remaining time
This WOD made me SO happy. I wish I could have done the run, but since we all know I love rowing I wasn’t even cranky about my cranky foot. I kept around a 2:15-2:15 pace for each of the 500s, and kept my burpees each round pretty steady as well.
I really REALLY wanted to do 30, as it’s my 30th birthday today, and might still do 10 when I get home from work tonight just to say I did it.
Here’s to my 30th year of health and happiness.
