Whenever I say the phrase ” Back to the Beginning” I think of the Princess Bride where Inigo Montoya ( played by the amazing Mandy Patinkin) is drunk and Fezzik ( played by larger than life Andre The Giant) finds him when he needs to clear the Thieves Forest. And I say it in my head the way Inigo says it…. silly, I know but it makes me laugh. Check it out. I tried finding a good clip of the line but the one I found was of horrific quality, and my readers deserve better than that! Seriously, The Princess Bride is my favorite movie of all time. Yes, I am one of those people who can quote the whole movie.
But I digress…
So, tonight was my first night back to Cross Fit in almost month. As much as it stunk for me not working out – I am kinda glad my doctor said to take it easy, it is a strenuous activity. So, I am glad I waited. I felt like it was my first night. I regressed so much. Ugh 😦
Here’s How I did :
Back Squats 4×12
Last time I did back squats, I PR’D! Tonight – it was more reps and totally did not even get close to my PR. My PR is 145 lbs. Tonight it was 65 lbs. And Good Lord was it hard! But I did 4 sets of 12. So, I am happy with that.
3 rounds for time
30 abmat sit ups
45 Kettle bell Swings
15 min time cap
I made it through exactly 2 rounds. My Overhead Squats were atrocious, so so so bad, so incredibly bad that I had to use the training bar. Granted, its been quite a while, but the training bar ? Christ, my ego was crushed into tiny itty bitty pieces. I could only do a few reps with the womens bar, no way I could do the whole workout with it. Soul crusher. Blah.
The abmat sit ups I feel I did really good, I decided to challenge myself and do them as butterfly sit ups. I could do those…
Kettlebells – I usually use the 35 lbs KB, but first night back, I didn’t want to kill myself, so I went with the 26 lb.
All in all, it was great to be back . I feel good. Looking forward to tomorrow night!
Then, this weekend, my friends and I are doing the Biggest Loser Walk/ Run ! Should be interesting!
Gotta keep swimming!
