Up bright and early this morning, battling the thunder, lightening, and torrential down pour on my way to the box to Coach our athletes competing in the Open. 13.3 (cough, 12.4), here we go!
I wasn't sure if I would have time to do 13.3 today. But, we had an athlete that was WODing alone in the final heat, and from personal experience, there is nothing worse than doing a tough workout alone. Since he had a judge (and since I'm not officially competing, I don't need one), I set down my clipboard, hollered at another athlete to grab my rope for me out of my bag, and with 3 seconds to go, slipped my sweater off and got ready to slay some wall balls.
150 wall balls? Good enough warm up for me!
Took my time on the wall balls, knowing that I wanted to get to the double unders and finish them unbroken. With 2 minutes to spare, and 240 reps, I had to call it good. I'm not cleared to do any ring work until my tendinitis and soft tissue has had a chance to heal.
The wall balls tore it up enough ...
It was so much more fun judging and cheering everyone on this morning! Everyone gave it there all and left it all out there this morning. This is what I love about CrossFit.
And the feasts I partake in afterward ... but that's another story. ;)
Pecan stuffed protein waffles, topped with PB2, Applegate Farms turkey bacon, black cherries, SF maple syrup, and unsweetened coconut flakes.
The husband wanted something "light" for dinner, so I sautéed up some firm tofu in a little sesame oil, sprinkled a few toasted sesame seeds on top while cooking, along with a little paprika and chili flakes. In another cast iron pan, I threw together some veggies: red bell pepper, yellow squash, onion, green beans with some Kerrygold butter, and cooked until al-dente. I like when my beans still have some "snap".
Dessert was a fun little creation! Just a few ingredients, less than 70 calories, 8g protein, 7g of carbs, the perfect sweet treat to top off the night!
Here's to praying the rain goes away tomorrow!
1. Do you eat tofu?
2. Chocolate or vanilla?
3. Banana or Apples?
4. Do you workout on the weekends or rest? If you did 13.3, are you sore?
