It’s been more than a week since I last posted, as I just haven’t felt the need and/or urge to do so. I’m watching Netflix but not watching the Super Bowl. I couldn’t care less about football. I do care, however, when people say “I could care less.”
I shan’t post all workouts but instead provide some highlights.
Coach Deborah led a WOD for all of the CrossFit Surmount coaches last Monday night and the workout ended with true tabata double unders. I completed 30 each round. Yay!
SAT FEBRUARY 06, 2016 | CHIPS AHOY!
100 Abmat sit-ups
70 double unders
60 box jumps (24)
50 S2O (115)
40 ring dips
30 wall ball shots (20 & 10)
20 calorie row
10 G2O (115)
I attended the 11 am session, led by Coach Doza. This was a tough workout, and I witnessed 2 males (Mac and Anthony) attempt to complete within 40-min time cap, and both fail to do so. I was confident that I’d be able to complete as prescribed and within time cap, and that was my goal. I knew that I’d need to pace myself.
I began by completing 100 unbroken sit-ups. Everyone except Jay, who was also attempting to complete as prescribed, had begun pushups whilst I was still completing sit-ups. I recorded my time. Uhm, my handwriting is atrocious, but I think I recorded 3:10.
Luke was particularly attentive today, and did slow down my pace with sit-ups and pushups. He sure does like his squeaky toy! I completed no less than 5 pushups or pull-ups at a time. Yup, I was pacing myself.
I completed 70 double unders in rounds of 45 & 30. That was perhaps the easiest part of the workout.
Whilst completing box jumps I began dreading shoulder to overhead. I completed as many as 15 box jumps (with rebound off of the floor) at a time and only had two failed reps.
I set a goal to complete shoulder to overhead, either push press of push jerk, 5 reps at a time, and did so for the first 40 reps. I was beginning to get tired and I feared that I’d fail a rep so I completed last 10 reps in sets of 4, 3, & 3.
Ring dips went well, and I began by completing 10 unbroken reps. I finished the round in sets of 5 reps.
The 30 wall ball shots were tough. I began by completing 9 unbroken reps. Yup, I missed the target for 10th rep. I finished the round in sets of 6, 5, 5, & 5 reps.
I’ve never experienced a more laborious row. I did manage to row 20 calories in 21 strokes.
As I knew that I’d finish well within the time cap, I took my time with the last 10 clean and push presses.

I worked out today, Sunday, during the start of CrossFit Kids. My upper body was a little sore so I created an active recovery workout.
3 strict handstand pushups
5 strict toes to bar
35 unbroken double unders
35-second vertical ring hold
Uhm, this was challenging. I was doing well until the very last round when I failed the 33rd rep of round of double unders. Dammit. I then failed the 7th rep. Dammit. I regrouped (and attempted to get Kevin and James out of the way) and finally completed 35 unbroken rep. Yay!
Time = 12:05
