Cavejen finds a new cave...

It's been a while, NFers! But I'm back. Sneaky sneak. Only two days late. >.>

 

Among the many disruptions in my life since I was last here, I've moved to a new city (from the SF Bay Area peninsula to SF proper). So my focus right now is getting a new routine under control, more than anything else. I literally just joined a new Crossfit gym, so there it begins...

 

1 - Go to Crossfit 3x week

2 - Lift on my own 2x week

3 - Work on mobility in some form every day, including 2x formal mobility classes a week.

 

Life quest: Conquer the snooze button! No hitting snooze for the next 6 weeks. Set my alarm for when I actually want to get up.

 

I've been away from the gym for a month or so, so first I gotta get showing up. Then I'll get the hairier stuff under control!

Girlfriend!! Welcome back! Good to see you. :)

 

Thanks to you, I'm now hooked on CF. Your previous challenges got me curious and interested. I'm not very good at it yet, but I'm hooked. So thanks for that. And I mean that in an almost non sarcastic tone. :lol:

OK so I opened up this thread yesterday to post and never actually got around to it. Heh.

 

Crossfit yesterday:

  • Work up to 70% 1RM clean
  • EMOM, alternating
    • 5-10 strict pullups
    • One 70% clean then max front squats
  • WOD stations, 3 mins each:
    • Sled push/rope pull 50'
    • Max GHD situps
    • Max plank (count the time spent resting)
    • Farmer carry

We only had time for 3 stations so I skipped the farmer carry, thinking the others would be harder for me. And they were. The sled was OK but the other two killed me.

 

Worked up to 85# for the clean, which was pretty brutal when it came to front squats. I definitely need to get squatting and will focus on that on my own time.

 

Today: got up and out early for a 7am mobility session, focusing on shoulders - lovely. Well, painful, but lovely.

 

Got up without snoozing yesterday; snoozed once today, though once my phone went off that was it. I think I should just turn my phone alarm off. Had difficulty waking up but we just got a ghetto blackout curtain (photographer's black muslin on a shower curtain rod) and now my gradual light alarm works - hoorah!

 

Tomorrow Crossfit and Saturday I'll venture into the gym - my new box has a free membership to the gym next door, which has a bunch of Oly platforms! Nice!

So, grabbing a flexi leash by the leash is a BAD IDEA kids. Don't do it. Honestly I have no idea why I did.

 

I've sliced open my right index finger and today's WOD is full of things that use grip, so I'm passing today in favour of more mobility work (cheating though, with a Thai massage). 

 

Bah bah bah.

The WOD was split jerks, so nope! It's cool. I can do back squats tomorrow with it, just not much else bar-wise and certainly not pullups/TTB. Basically cut along the first knuckle on the inside, so no bending or pressure on the finger at all. I don't want to half-arse a workout and slow the recovery.
