Back in the game...

Okay, so I've been MIA for about a week now. I didn't do ANYTHING over that time and I really need to get back into the routine of working out. Starting today. I am finally going to do the CF Invictus WOD from last Tuesday.

I'm also quite behind on my burpee challenge. As of yesterday, I have 395 burpees to make up. I figured that I will do 20 extra (on top of the # for the day) to catch up in about 20 days.

Warm-Up:
5 min. jog

56 burpees
10 band-assisted pull-ups (1 band 2 bands)
20 ball sit-ups

20 burpees
10 KTC's

CrossFit Invictus WOD:
For time:
10 Thrusters (Heavy - challenge yourself) -- 55#'s 45#'s (who am I kidding!)
50 Double-Unders/100 Single-Unders
8 Thrusters
40 Double-Unders/80 Single-Unders
6 Thrusters
30 Double-Unders/60 Single-Unders
4 Thrusters
20 Double-Unders/40 Single-Unders
2 Thrusters
10 Double-Unders/20 Single-Unders


Time: 5:45

I am seriously out of shape!! Damn me for taking such a long break. I couldn't do the pull-ups with only 1 band, so I had to drop back to 2. The burpees were by far the hardest. Came very close to puking on the last 20. The workout felt good, I was smiling by time I finished:). Happy to be working my tail off again! :)

Glad to see you're back in the game! Now it's time to go check out your local affiliate. They'll keep you motivated more than the quiet iron in the garage.

Keep on movin that heavy shit!

Well good on ya for givin' it a shot! CF gyms can be a lil pricey, especially when you're starting a family and eating on the Zone. (Could that be any more pricey!?!)

Well, stay motivated. You've got quite a few people checkin in on ya! When's the hubs gonna join in? You could probably show him a few things.
