This once a week workout thing is just not to my liking. At all. I hate it. I can’t wait for my foot to be pain free so I can get back to my 4 or 5 times a week. I miss my therapy, people. Seriously.
50 calories on bike
50 db press (20#)
50 v ups
50 ring rows
50 bench dips
50 push ups
50 lunges (unable to do these cause of foot)
I couldn’t do the lunges. I had a foot doctor visit yesterday and he gave me an injection of alcohol. This series of injections will be 3 or 4 months before we decide on surgery. I’ve read REALLY good things about this treatment, but my 1st in the series doesn’t seem to have done much. Unless it’s going to take it’s time. The foot went numb last night and then today it was raging. It makes me sad. I just want to do burpees and box jumps.
This one kicked my butt!!
1 minute on bike (for calories – get as many calories as you can)
20 sit ups
Continue until you hit 150 calories on the bike
I did 12 rounds of this before hitting 150 calories. It kicked my ass! Holy smokes. My abs are going to be hating me tomorrow for sure.
So, as a lot of you know, the Crossfit Games have started with the Open. Every Wednesday for a certain amount of time, they will release the WOD of the week. Yesterday, they released 13.2 (2013 Crossfit Games, Open workout 2) You can see the exact workout here.
5 shoulder to overhead (115/75)
10 deadlift (115/75)
15 box jumps (24″/20″)
10 minute AMRAP
I decided today I would attempt this workout. Even though my foot may not last during the box jumps, I knew I could scale it and modify it to however it works for me.
This is what I did:
5 shoulder to overhead (55#)
10 deadlift (55#)
15 step ups
4 rounds + 20 reps (140 reps) The step ups slowed me down. I actually tried the jumps in the first round and it destroyed my toes/foot, so I switched it up to the step ups. I think if my foot would have allowed me to continue the jumps, I would have gotten more reps in. The #1 woman in the world did something like 337 reps in the workout (11+ rounds.) Insane stuff right there!
Last Thursday (the 5th), I went to Crossfit The Ville and I joined their gym (also called a “box” in the Crossfit community.) I didn’t really do a workout that day, but I introduced myself to the row machine.
Since my last post on the 21st of February, I’ve done a few workouts here and there. My foot has been pretty restrictive in what I can and cannot do.
I went to the gym today, made up my own workout, and did it until my foot was burning.
600 meter row
20 sit ups
20 push press (15# dumbbell)
600 meter row
I ended up only doing 2 rounds of the workout before my foot bugged out. I realized, as I was doing the last 600m on the rower that it’s the rower that was jacking up the foot! D’OH! Well, just one more thing to add to my “can’t do” list for awhile. Bummer! I really like the row machine. KILLS my shoulders, but damn it’s fun!
