After being woken up at 0400 by Béa (I swear, this kid needs to learn to sleep in a bit better!), I never managed to fall back asleep, so it was a very early start to my day. I got out of bed at 0500 and got ready for Crossfit.
Working on the rope, I was paired up with Marika (I now know her name! She was the nice lady that comforted me in this post) and boy! Can this girl climb a rope! She was just getting up there like it was nothing! Me, on the other hand, looked more like a hippo trying to inch my way up! I managed to do it 3x though and my leg lock was strong enough for me to let go of the rope a few times too! I will definitely need long pants or long socks for the next set of these as I have a minor rope burn on my right shin at the moment!
My amazing friend Tracey (or was it her husband Mark? I was too focused on getting on the rope to know any better!) managed to take a few shots of me in action, trying to climb the rope
How awesome is that! My 1st “action” shots from the Box! SO happy and grateful for these!
Then, it was time for the WOD. I managed 45# for the power cleans and the push presses and I think I could have done 50#, but the wall balls killed me. I stayed at 10#. Some day, I swear, I will use the 14# ball for these!
My times for each rounds were:
0:51, 0:57, 0:55, 1:03, 1:07
It was a tough one and I’m just glad I managed to keep all my rounds under the 2 mins required! Now, I’m off to go see my tiny ballerina do her thing at dance classes!
