Since I'm the regular CrossFitter in the group, it's up to me to put together our workouts, which I LOVE! I get to challenge myself and my friends, and be a little creative as well. A particularly successful Therapy Bootcamp WOD (Workout of the Day) including an "animal" segment involving bear crawls, donkey kicks, crab walks & frog jumps, and I'm proud to say we all brought out our inner 5-year-old.
So I couldn't very well leave them hanging yesterday, despite having an indoor CrossFit Central class at 8am. A double duty day!
Here's what I looked like afterwards:
Therapy Bootcamp WOD
Warm-up 10 minutes
3 rounds for time:
25 mountain climbers
10 tricep dips
run approx. 300 meters
My time- 11:20
CrossFit Central WOD
Warm-up (this one included hateful burpee broad jumps)
8 rounds for time:
12 jump squats
8 clapping pushups
12 one-arm snatch (I used 20# db)
My time- 17:38
The 8 rounds really took a force of will to power through. I was the only girl in class and didn't have my usual fab Coach Crystal, but working out with the guys and Carey kept me motivated to work my butt off and I held my own with them. My clapping pushups consisted of knee pushups with a one-hand slap to the chest between each one, leaving me with one hell of a skinned knee. Far from feeling depleted after these WODs, I felt energetic and ready for the day. Then I got home to fix my breakfast of champions!
2 fried farmers market eggs
1/2 cup whipped sweet potatoes
handful of blueberries with a little greek yogurt
Mmmmm. And sweet potatoes are an awesome alternative to boring old white potatoes, which aside from being the nightshade arch-nemesis of my bf are also pretty high up there on the list of foods that skyrocket your blood sugar. Make the switch to this pretty little tuber and you won't regret it.
