4 Rounds for time of:
10 Deadlifts (275/225)
I did real push-ups but used caution with my shoulder, and was very happy that I was able to get through all push-ups without issue. For the deadlift, I chose 130# (was originally going to go for 140#) which was super heavy...even by the end of round 1. I was soooo slow today on this workout that most people were on deadlifts of round 2 by the time I completed my first round. Oh well, my 22:28 can only improve now, right?
For additional work, I only worked on core: slow sit-ups, and couple hundred flutter kicks.

But I did go on a slow run (without my garmin..bummer!) of about 6 miles. I didn't feel good going, didn't feel good doing, and felt like crap after. Not a great idea, but I was hoping I would feel better following the run.

For Crossfit today we did something called "Little Method" which is 8 Rounds of:
1 min row (max effort)
75 second rest
I wasn't really looking forward to this WOD since I absolutely hate rowing, but I was hoping to do better than I did considering I row 1k every morning I go to Crossfit. Oh well :( My distance was: 266, 269, 262, 261, 256, 250, 257, 260
I ran in the afternoon, but haven't uploaded my Garmin yet to find out the distance.

Today's Crossfit WOD was a real doozy and certainly not in my wheelhouse!
Five rounds for time of:
15 Ring rows
15 Back squat (225/185)
On the ring rows, feet propped on 20″ plyo-box and rings set at arms length such that when you are hanging from the rings your back can touch the ground when arms are fully extended.
Rows: feet on 20″ box (2 R), floor (remainder)
Push-ups: Rx’d (took forever, but I did it!)
BSquat: 100#(2reps), 95#(remainder, 1st R), 85#(2nd R), 65#(remainder). Tweaked BS weight a bit – sore runner legs.
Later in the day...we went mountain biking for a couple hours! What a great day!
