A Month of CrossFit - Day 8

Collapsing is the least of my worries

After taking Monday off, I dragged myself out of bed this morning, stumbled around trying to find my workout clothes and almost face-planted onto the dining room table in a sleep-deprived stupor. This whole summer, I've been sleeping with our blinds mostly open so that when the sun comes up in the morning, we get woken up naturally by the light, not jarred awake by an alarm clock. But as summer is fading, so is the light outside, and I didn't realize how much it would affect me to not have the sun peeking through my window at 6 a.m. 

We had a different trainer for our workout this morning - Troy. He made it a point to focus on our form as we did deadlifts, kettlebell swings and squats so that we would be less prone to injury, and actually get the full benefit of the workout. 

15 ring rows
15 Russian kettlebell swings
20 lateral step-ups
25m inchworm
15 dumbbell thrusters
50m small hops
50m grapevine

5-5-5 deadlifts (at max weight - I did three sets of 95)

For Time:
20 front squats (I did mine with 45lbs)
30 box jumps
40 kettlebell swings (I did 12kg)
50 wall balls (10lb ball)
My Time: 12:43

Workouts for time or AMRAP are great because of how they push you to compete with yourself and take your performance to the next level. I left on shaking legs, but I'm glad to be back in the swing of things.
