WOD Wednesday

January 2, 2013

I figured since most of my Workout Wednesday posts are Crossfit related, I’d switch it up to WOD Wednesday.

Unfortunately I only have one workout to talk about this week and it was my last WOD of 2012. Since I had been away for six days over Christmas, there was no working out going on. But now that I’m back home, I’m right back at it.

The first post-holiday/last WOD of 2012 was Monday, which means test day!! I was excited to test my 1RM for back squats. I love squats! I was the only one that showed up so I had Coach Dave’s full attention helping spot me for the squats. I got up to 105lbs. I can live with that! We were also to test pushups and situps. This was the first time doing situps since my c-section. Normally I would be able to reach the cap of 50, but I only made it to 25 and they were VERY slow. Better than nothing though, I’ll get there! I have only been doing pushups from my knees in WOD’s but decided that I want to start getting my strength up and doing them on my toes so I tested from my toes. I knew I wouldn’t get very many but that’s ok. This means that if we are doing a percentage of our max pushups in a WOD, I will have a lower number of reps to do, but I’d rather do low reps from my toes than high reps from my knees. I managed to do 15. I used to be able to rock pushups so that’s not ideal but I will get back there!

All that and I haven’t even got to the WOD yet! It was a killer. 2 rounds, 2500m row with 2 minute rest in between. Yup, 5km of rowing. Happy effing New Year! It was brutal! I finished in 27:07, just shy of the 26:00 prediction Coach Dave made. Liam motivated to me to go hard at the end because he woke up and I didn’t want him to start crying or anything. He was so good though, just chilled in his car seat while I rowed my little heart out.

Since it’s the start of a new year, I should reconsider some of my fitness goals for this year:

– PR my Spartan Sprint and Mud Hero times
– complete the Spartan Super
– learn to do kipping pullups
– deadlift over my body weight
– start doing yoga again

Maybe this year I can cross some things off my Fitness Bucket List. 

What was your last workout of 2012?
Do you have any fitness goals for 2013?
