CrossFit x2 – July 21, 2021

I was gone for the weekend and missed Monday and Tuesday this week. Got up and went to class at 5:30 a.m. as normal. It was nice to be back in the gym.

However, I did a thing today….not sure exactly what I was thinking but it worked out ok. Be sure you read carefully.

So, ok – did you figure out what I did?
I went to TWO CrossFit classes today! What in the world? Have I lost my mind?

Grace missed a Strength Training class this week so she decided she was going to the 5:30 p.m. CrossFit class to make up for what she missed. Well, I decided since it was lifting maybe I should go with her. If nothing else, I could ride a bike or walk around the building or try something. But maybe I could do more lifting? I didn’t feel bad from this morning. So, I ended up doing the whole class and partnering with Grace this time. But i will say that most of the time I did more weight than she did. But she was trying to really get her form down correct and Matt helped her a bit and I she finally started really using her legs and she got ALOT better at her lifts!

Then home, ate a quick dinner, then outside to unload a u-haul trailer. So moved all the boxes – I passed them out of the truck to Grace and Pat who stacked them up. Then, I moved the washer and dryer with Grace. We just lifted them up and then set them on the pallets where I wanted them to end up.

Guess all that made for a very good workout today!! 🙂

Hope everyone had a great day and we’ll see some of you in the morning at class.
