It took me over an hour to get to CrossFit after work today. It usually takes me 15 minutes. SERIOUS BLIZZARD, GUYS. The roads are awwwwful. It’s been snowing for 36 hours already, and it’s going to continue until around noon tomorrow. But don’t mention it to KC. He hasn’t gotten any snow in his ‘hood, and he’s bitter.
ANYWAY. I arrived twenty minutes late to class because of snow and incompetent drivers.
"You can do twenty burpees to warmup and then hop into the second heat, or you can do the normal warmup and we’ll make a third heat just for you."
Oh. Okay. Tough choice.

Warmup
20x burpee
Deadlift
10x 35#
10x 85#
WOD
21-15-9
deadlift, 155# (scaled to 115#)
box jump, 24” (scaled to 20”)
=9:57

My coach was standing next to me as I came off the barbell in the first round, and I missed my first box jump. I landed on the box… just on my knees instead of my feet. ”Nope. Not happening. Shut it down.” I don’t think he understands my sense of humor just yet. He was very encouraging in response, which was nice of him. I was just laughing.
My lungs are now on fire, and I can’t stop wheezing. Asthma is the wooooorst. Just so you know.
But I had a good day and a good workout. Smile Friday, indeed.

  5. avenue-adventure said: I can’t believe you went out in this weather! I came straight home after work, and don’t plan on leaving for the rest of the weekend! Which crossfit do you go to? I’ve been thinking about trying out Ute crossfit, but I have a friend at Tekton.
