NATIONAL DAY!!! :D SG52!

Almost everyone wore red and/or white to workout today haha. And the colour(s) we wore influenced how many rounds we had to run in the wod lol!

“Hotshots 19”
6 rounds –
30 air squats
19 power cleans [(95#)]
7 strict pull-ups
Run 3/2/1 rounds*

Finished in ~45min though it actually looks oook :P I was running 2 rounds cos only had a red top (no whites on me)! So those who were wearing both red and white or all red or all white ran 1 round. Those (like myself) with only red or only white and some other colour ran 2 rounds. Those not in red or white at all ran 3! Quite interesting la haha.

Went to macs with Anny, David and Jon after wod! Been a while since we had brkf after wod tgt hehe. And it felt so much like a Saturday~

Really vv happy that I managed to go for wod today hehe ^^ And the 530 class at that! :D It was super empty. Only 4 of us including myself. Shawn was there too but he was doing other stuff at the other side of box cos he injured his back.

Strength/skill

0:00-5:00 EMOM 3 squat snatch [2x 37.7kg, 3x 42.7kg]
5:00-10:00 EMOM 5 squat clean & jerk [42.7kg]

I thought the snatches were ok hence the weight increase. I thought it would be manageable for the C&J…. but I was quite wrong LOL. Cos it’s squat, it took up a lot of time (and energy). I strung the first 5 C&Js, but the next few rounds were impossible haha. Ended up stringing mostly 2 or singles :P Well, at least still completed all 5 reps within each min!

WOD

7 rounds “Chief”
50 GHD
6 rounds “Chief”
50 GHD
5 rounds “Chief”
100 back extensions
*Chief = 3 power clean [(105#)], 6 push ups, 9 air squats

I’m guessing I took between 40-45min. Cos there was so little people, we each had our own GHD HAHA. I can’t really tell what was the hardest part for me this workout cos I think every element just contributed to it being quite tiring! Even the air squats… I was doing them very slowly; just felt I couldn’t go any faster and it was such a chore squatting so many times hahahah.

During the last 5 rounds of “Chief” I felt a bit faint and like puking actually. So I think I slowed down even more haha. It was a fun wod though! :D

“1775” (adapted)
45:00 AMRAP with a partner –
17 power cleans [(105#)]
75 air squats
*after each round: unload bar, walk to other side of box, reload bar

Whitney and I managed 12 rounds! It was pretty fun with all those cleans and we managed to more or less keep our pace! :D Did the cleans in sets of 3 and for air squats we didn’t break up our respective reps. One of us will unload the bar while the other person is squatting – save time LOL.

We thought we could finish at least 9 rounds; like 5min per round. But at our 9th round, we still had about 12min to go, so pushed the target to 12! Then at the 11th round we were running to the other side of the box with the plates and bar HAHA – just so we would have time to finish up our target number of rounds xD

It was Francis’ farewell wod today (though I’ve never spoken to him, I know who he is lol). Apparently he’s going overseas to work.

WOD

Fran
21-15-9
Thrusters [(65#)]
Pull-ups

10 rounds “Cindy”

Back squats to ‘Sally Up, Sally Down’ song [(95#)]

The blue letters make up his name hahaha. (Yup, like that also can :P)

It was actually not too bad overall…. though the back squats part got tough towards the end; cannot keep up with the song! But I’m quite happy I still managed to do all the reps :) My upper back/lats ached like crazy at the end.

Did Fran then Cindy. I think I finished Fran in 10-11min… and all the Cindys in at least 15min lol. Kinda took my time with them :P

YAY NEW MONTH NEW BEGINNINGS. Praying for a better month ahead….

Resting for 2 days made working out today more tiring??? LOL. Like the inertia to get started was so high!

Warm-up

5:00 AMRAP “Cindy”

Did it quite slowly and only did 3 rounds + 10 push up + 15 air squats haha.

Strength/skill

7:00 EMOM 3 snatch balance (from ground) [2x 37.7kg, 5x 42.7kg]

Having to snatch it up from the ground made it all the more tiring ><

WOD

With a partner –
100 GHD
80 box jumps
60 power snatch [(85#)]
40 MUs / 80 pull-ups + 80 ring dips – did the latter

First 3 movements were done quite fast.. until the pull-ups and ring dips lol. Think Anny and I took about half an hour for everything though the front part was done in less than 15 :P

CF log 03/06/17 (Sat)

Warmed up with some front squat holds (15kg) and burpees. Then had “Murph” as wod. It was written as partner style on the board…. but for some of us, we had to do it solo! I was one of them…. :O with others like Anny, Yzanne, Calvin etc haha.

“Murph” (slightly modified version!)
Run 6 laps with 6kg wall ball (~1200m)
100 pull-ups
200 weighted push ups [(15#)]
300 weighted squats [(6kg wall ball)]
Run 6 laps with 6kg wall ball

I took….. almost 1.5hrs LOL. When class officially ended at 10am, I think I was only at 100 pull-ups, 80 push ups, and 200 squats :P Wanted to just finish up the push ups and squats and call it a day, but Xin said we (Anny and I) must still do the run AHHH T_T hahahah. So we did it, but walked and brisked walked a lot and finally finished ard 10.30am :P

Went to eat Toast Box after that!! Very happy 행복해! :)

CNY wod!!! Slightly different from last year in terms of the exercises but still the same format of 8 rounds, 8 reps of each movement haha. As usual it sounds ok, but doing it is a different story :P

Supposed to end class at 9.08am, but I was only in my 7th round hahaha. Prolly finished around 9.20am? Good start to the day in preparation for all the CNY food during visiting hehe :D

Processed with VSCO with s3 preset

FIRST DAY OF THE NEW YEAR :D As with the past 2 years, started with a good workout! And as with the past 2 years, it’s the same workout. And again, as with the past 2 years, I still can’t do my ring dips well T_T It was banded all the way this year… (esp cos my chest was aching so much from all those push ups ytd!)

“PARTY WITH THE GIRLS 2017” (also 2015 and 2016 lol). I think I took 50-55min?

What’s different this year – only David and I from chaokeng gang did the wod today hahaha. There were many more friends last year! And even 2 years ago; albeit a slightly different group of friends. Well, things change~

Still a fun and great time wodding this year! Makes me feel like I had a healthy start to 2017 HAHA. (But my breakfast was tapioca cake so… :P)

Anyway, hoping that 2017 will be a good crossfit year for me! In other words, I can still make it for classes regularly (with my new job), and improve in my movements (e.g. rings dips, get ONE muscle up!).
