My hamstrings were a little sore this morning, but that didn’t prevent me from completing today’s metcon. I did so with the 11 am athletes, as Jeff was kind enough to coach. I faced the front of the building, with Janet behind me and Dianne and Lauren in front of (and facing) me.
50 back squats (95)
25 weighted sit-ups (20/14)
25 toes to bar
50 back squats (75)
30 weighted sit-ups
20 toes to bar
50 back squats (55)
35 weighted sit-ups
15 toes to bar
This was tough, as I knew it was going to be.
I completed the round of 95# back squats in reps of 25, 10, 5, 5, & 5. I wasn’t the first to complete the reps. Lauren was squatting with me rep for rep, although she continued when I stopped after the first 25 to shake out my legs. I completed the round of 25 sit-ups unbroken, but wasn’t able to use an Abmat as there were over 2o athletes at the session. Yup, weekends are busy at CrossFit Surmount. I completed toes to bar in reps of 10, 10, & 5.
The round of 75# back squats felt the heaviest, and I completed in 10 rounds of 5 reps. Thirty unbroken sit-ups and toes to bar in reps of 5, 5, 4, and singles. Gah!
The last round went better than expected, and I completed back squats in reps of 15, 10, and then sets of 5, followed by 35 unbroken sit-ups and toes to bar in reps of 4 unbroken — yup, just 4 — and singles.
