Excited to compete!!! 😀
Good luck today everyone! Remember who loves ya. Can't wait to hear how it goes.
12pm class with Noah
Competed in the subway series before this, and got 60 reps with team WODy Count, which is about what we expected. It was a great time. Team coaches were amazing. Hoorah CFSBK!
C&2Jerks: 88, 111, 132, 144, 155, 165, 165, 165
Could have gone up but I stayed at 165 and tried to make the jerks feel snappy, but they felt sluggish today, maybe because of the workout in queens. Although Noah says it was my bare feet.
The WOD was fun: 415 reps with Brad and James. I did everything RXed. Thrusters were the slowest movement. Pull-ups felt great. I think I did 40 in 4 sets and they all moved well.
Nooner with Noah
C&J fitness had it's ups and downs today. Worked up to 103, failing the Hang-Clean on the first attempt but got some good advice from Noah, "Lord knows you can squat, so get under it". The Clean & Hang-Clean of the second attempt at 103 was solid, took Noah's advice and got under it, then i failed the Jerk. I definitely didn't commit and got caught up in my own head so next week will shoot for the same number (maybe a few pounds heavier) but with confidence.
Really fun WOD today: 398 reps with Katie & Jess!!
Hello from a little island off the southern coast of the Emerald Isle!
Been spending some time with my family and have so far managed to remain fairly active.
Went for a swim despite the cold, rainy weather yesterday. It was freezing but amazing. Today I attempted a run- I only managed 3K. I find it harder to breathe here (is the air too clean?!) and the road was all uneven and I got to the end of the island and there was a bull in the field so I had to turn back.
I then attempted to design a workout but it went a bit awry as it is very difficult to do double-unders in the wind but this is what I did.
There really was no rhyme or reason to it haha. Thank goodness I don't have to design my own workouts very often. Went for another swim this evening. The weather was better but the water was still hella cold. But once you're in there it's always worth it.
Tomorrow I'll be checking out CrossFit Cork.
Congrats to the comp team for winning today!

CONGRATS to everyone who tore it up at the subway series today!!! mighty proud.
Friday WOD w/ Kate:
-did the Triple 3 but we broke it up into rounds of 3. Finished in about 45:27… hollllyyy shmokes. that was a whole lotta fitness.
-Squat: got into my warmups and my hip just wasn't having it. i was so stiff/overall uncomfortable when i started putting weight on the bar. I have had this huge knot in my hamstring for a few weeks now which i think is the culprit behind it all… which i think i FINALLY got to go away this afternoon.
-due to fridays events Noah gave me a different workout so i didn't have to repeat…which was very much appreciated. Finished in about 8:20
3 DL @ 225#
20 box jumps 24"
-C&J Perf: 103#…everything just felt a little gross today…suppose i had one too many tecates yesterday evening…..or watermelon slices. not sure which one did me in
-WOD was hilarious. got a good ab workout in if anything bcs i felt like i was laughing the whole time. Thrusters 65#, strict chin ups, 20" box, 53# KB. FInished up with 398 reps with Jess and Becca. great day!

Lots of fun at the subway series this morning. Congrats to my great teammates Jess and Brett and our competition team for killing it!
Spent a little time at open gym practicing double unders and kipping. Thanks again for the tips JB.
first lifting session in 9 days, felt like 9 years
i swear i lose 10% strength for every day i take off from lifting. my legs felt like jelly after the first set
you ever notice how the only people who give a shit about overhead pressing are the ones who have big overhead presses? something to think about…
trying something new for deadlifts this cycle which is VOLUME. i got really lightheaded after the last rep on set 2 and almost fell, it was hilarious
then we did half of the wod that you crazy kids did the other day: 500m row, 50 double unders, 500m run. nice to know i still have doubles. the run took 7 minutes and mostly consisted of me crying, panting, questioning my life choices, etc.
cool down was a bag of cool ranch doritos, a string cheese and a diet cherry pepsi.
First time back at the gym in a week. Felt so good to be back!
Clean + 2 Jerk complex: worked up to 130. Felt good, especially because I haven't jerked for at least six weeks (not sure how that happened?)
Squats–was gone all week so added a little volume to yesterday's.
Had 5 minutes left before open gym, so did a quick little metcon based off of today's partner WOD (which looked FUN): 3 RFT: 10 HSPU/10 PU/10 BJ/10 KBs (4:02)
Clean + 2 Jerks
Worked up to 220. Felt ok. Need to focus on locking out sharper.
WOD woth Brett and Greg was 16 min of fun. We killed it.
