October 7

It's a rainy day in my part of Florida. Here is the lovely forecast from the Weather Channel:

Showers and thunderstorms developing around 1pm. Mostly cloudy with temperatures rising to near 83F. SSW winds shifting to SSW at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 80%. Rainfall possibly over one inch. 

Ugh. It was raining throughout my workout at CrossFit En Fuego so my post-wod walk become a post-wod row. 3,000 meters. Good enough.

We began our WOD (workout of the day) with back squats. 7 sets of 3. Moderately heavy weight. We (the girls I workout with) always have a bad habit of starting too light and then at the end thinking "we should have started heavier." NEXT TIME I WILL REMEMBER!! But regardless, I PR'd a 3 rep back squat. This is an honest to goodness photo. I am not staging the look on my face. People always tell me "Jenny, your face is always so full of expression." I guess maybe they are right! Tongue Out

After the back squats, we moved in to our WOD, a girl named Annie. Annie is one of my favorite girls.

100 single jump rope, 50 situps, 80 single jumps, 40 situps, etc....

In April it took me 10:43 to complete the WOD. Today 8:43! I shaved EXACTLY 2 minutes off my Annie time. Smile That's a PR in my book!! Woot woot!!

Felt great when I was finished. Almost wanted to do another round, but the 10am class was coming in, so I went to do my rowing.

Now with the lousy weather, I guess I'll do some laundry and clean the house up a bit. I'll probably go to Publix too for some after school snacks for the kids. And I need to write a few blog posts reviewing some stuff I did last week.

I'm already dreaming about my Wednesday co-op from Carlita's Bowl. I am out of fruit. Undecided

What was your workout today??
