My wimpy little 62 is up there against all the rock star 5am Crossfitters and yet I'm super happy about it.

Extended Warm Up- No running (Thank You Jesus!!!)
3 rounds of:
5 HSPU (Handstand Push Ups)
10 Burpees
15 Squats

Obviously, I can't handle my own body weight so the HSPU were scaled to Hand Release Push Ups. We all know how I feel about Burpees and Squats too so this "warm up" made me want to pack my bags and head to the islands forever. It is bad enough to do 10 burpees, but 30?! Shoot me.

The WOD today involved weights and I was excited about it. I worked in a group of 3 and the 2 ladies I was with were 1. SUPER Nice and 2. ROCKSTARS!

Close Grip Bench

(This means 5 reps, 5 reps, 3 reps... etc.)

The ladies had already started while I was finishing my warmup and they set me up with 38lbs. I honestly thought that was going to be too much. But it wasn't! I progressively added a little bit more weight until we were finished.

My stats-
5- 38#, 5-43#, 3-53#, 3-58#, 1-58#, 1-60#, 1-63#

So while I may be 42 pounds less than the next bench weight, I'm feeling good about it. It was 25 pounds more than I sat down thinking that I could do.

And unfortunately, I walked into the box today and saw my name on the burpee list. I forgot to put my med ball back on Wednesday (I remembered on the drive home) and if I knew that would mean I had a 20 burpee punishment I would have driven back! Post WOD I did my 20 burpees and wiped my name off the list. I'll never forget to put my stuff away again!
