In case you were wondering, I have only been doing about 1 official Crossfit workout per week. I just can not handle too much more.
Today I decided to go back to the standard and try Fran.
21 pull ups
21 95 pound thrusters
15 of each
9 of each
Last year I was able to do 11:20 (which is pretty lame). Today was 13:20. Funny, the pull ups were the easier part this year. The thrusters killed me.
95 lbs does not seem like a lot until you start throwing it above your head. I probably could have done faster, but I had to break it up into a lot of chunks.
I am a little nervous that, with 3.5 weeks to go, I struggled with a workout which emphasizes power squatting. I should have quads of steel. I don't.
But that's cool.
I am down to 167-168... So almost there.
I think a hard core long run this weekend and 20-25 next weekend should put me where I am comfortable.
I am putting my strategy together in the next 2 days.
I know this..... Sawtooth will be one where I am doing my own race. I fully expect to be alone most of the time. I have no interest trying to keep up with someone, or burden someone else to keep up with me.
I would opt not to wear a watch, but getting the food and electrolytes in over the correct period of time is kind of important.
I may have to improve on my race weight... can we say 162?
