It’s never a good sign when Monday’s WOD takes up the entire board.
Luckily it wasn’t as bad as it looks. Trust me, it was still tough, but there was a lot of repeating that allowed the WOD to flow a little easier than we originally thought it would. The worst part was looking at the board and trying to figure out where you were in the WOD. You would spend a good minute just finding your spot to see what comes next. Not that any of us were complaining about the excuse to rest for a minute between sets.
The “fun” came on the bookends of the WOD and smack dab in the middle. You started the WOD with an 800m run and ended with an 800m run, with a lovely set of 100 double unders in between ( or lateral jumps in my case). Way to get you when you’re down!
I think our box was expecting a lot of no-shows because of Superbowl Sunday the night before, but both the 6am and 7am classes were full of regulars. Personally, I didn’t even make it past the third quarter last night. After developing the world’s biggest girl crush on Beyonce during the halftime show (could she be any hotter?), I started losing interest in the game during the blackout and began to do the head nodding thing as I desperately tried to keep my eyes open. It didn’t work – I was a lost cause at that point and went to bed. I wonder how many viewers the Superbowl lost to sleep during the power outage?
On another note, I found a new way to keep my hair under control during CrossFit.
The folks at Cool Cat Pro sent me one of their wraps to test out for the blog. The Cool Cat is a multi purpose wrap that can be used to protect your face while running in the wind/cold as a neck gaiter or ear cover, but can also be used as a headband, wristband, impromptu ponytail holder, etc.
I’ve been wearing it as a pull over head cover around the house, but wanted to test it out at CrossFit to see how much it would move.
I was expecting it to slip and slide through the workout (especially with how much we were moving during today’s WOD), but it surprisingly stayed put. I didn’t have to readjust it once – not even after my HSPUs with the band. The best part was I could just throw it over my crazy morning hair and not even have to bother with attempting to tame my hair with a brush. Admittedly, it’s not the most attractive thing ever, but it’s CrossFit – who cares? As long as my hair wasn’t flying every which way, I was a happy camper.
For some reason my breakfast photos aren’t downloading (I think my SD card has captured its last photos), so just imagine a big bowl of plain greek yogurt with lots of fresh strawberries (that we picked ourselves yesterday!) and lots of nuts. Yum.
Alright, time to get this week started.
How late into the big game did you make it last night? Or did you prefer to watch/do something else?
