CrossFit on A Tuesday

Another day back at the gym. How many people will be there today? There were probably 10 of us today. Not too bad.
This new gym is so awesome. So wonderful they were able to buy their own building.

If more of us valued food and song and cheer above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world. J.R.R. Tolkien

Notes This is an interval workout where athletes will work for 3:00 and rest for 1:00.The load on the power clean is moderate and athletes are intended to be able to complete 5 reps consecutively on at least the first 2-3 rounds.
It is not intended to have long periods of time spent on the pull-ups and strive to complete all sets unbroken following a quick transition from the cleans.
The double unders are intended to not exceed more than 0:30 on any round.
Faster times for this workout will be under 10:00 and all are intended to be done in under 15:00-17:00.

I was able to get 9 complete rounds done and almost the 10th just short on the jump roping.

Another good day at the gym.

Wow – so hard to believe that I actually go to a gym everyday and I enjoy it! Weird how life happens. A year and a half ago I would have told you that there was something wrong with YOU if you thought I’d ever go to a gym daily and actually workout! It has been great! So glad I go and so glad that it is such a great community.
