This morning was a doozy. I can’t remember the last time I did Fran! For those of you not familiar with this WOD, let me enlighten you. Fran is a couplet Workout of Thrusters and Pullups. The reps go 21-15-9 of each for time. I completed in 8 minutes and 12 seconds.
Before Fran we ran 500meters. The weather was so nice this morning that I really enjoyed it!
After we completed Fran we did the post workout which consisted of 10 supermans and 10 abmat situps, 3 sets of each.
I went to Airrosti yesterday and was told I had a pinched nerve in my neck. This is what was causing the stiff neck and numbness in my left arm and hand. You can’t imagine how bummed I was to hear that I had to take a break from Crossfit until the weekend. My new Mizuno’s came in and I was super stoked to break them in, but I listened to doctors orders and I iced my neck and rested.
Today I did allow myself a little workout though… Technically it wasn’t Crossfit so I didn’t break the rules
I ran 1.1 miles on the treadmill, I biked for 5 miles and I did 2 leg machines with 3 sets of 10. My tennis shoes felt awesome!! I am so glad I listened to all my friends…. It’s amazing how a new pair of shoes can enhance a workout!
I am keeping it quick and short today. I have a pinched nerve in my neck that is killing my groove. I know for a fact that my morning workout is NOT the cause because I felt the soreness in my neck before I got to the gym. As the workout started and the day progressed I knew something was definitely off. I have an appointment with Airrosti first thing in the morning. I pray this helps because I can’t handle feeling incapacitated. Especially since I just got back to a good workout routine.
Today’s Workout was Orange Julius. We started with calisthenics as usual The warm up consisted of Plank holds for three rounds.
The WOD started with 50 Double Unders (or 200 single jump ropes for modified), a 21-15-9 set of Front Squats and Ring Pushups and finishing with 50 Double Unders. I scaled the first set of Double Unders but attempted the 50 in the end. I set up a 45 lb bar for the Front Squats. I probably could have done 55- 60 lbs, but since my neck was bothering me I didn’t push it. My last set up Ring Pushups (9) I did on my knees in order to get the proper depth.
The pictures are starting to arrive in my inbox and I can’t wait to see more!!! A big shout out to our photographer Alberto Vazquez who did an amazing job working with us and capturing our personalities.
