Tuesday night

I went swimming with the husband that night.  I mostly just played around since I had already worked out that morning.


We worked on snatch lifts this morning.  That’s from the floor to overhead.  I was feeling pretty uncoordinated on the lift and then got to thinking too much.  I stayed at 55 lbs which is fairly light because I just wasn’t getting it together.

The workout was 3 rounds of:

  • 15 kettle bell swings.  I did 45 lbs.
  • 15 toes to bar.  I can’t do that.  I do knees to wherever they end up.
  • 15 handstand push ups or pikes with our feet elevated on a box.  I did pikes.

I did it in 7:34.


We went swimming.  We only did about 500 m I think because we had Z with us.  She did some laps with the kickboard but then she was getting whiny and wanted to go to the fun pool.  We don’t like to send her over there alone because she tends to scare other people so we went with her.


I’m a Crossfit skipper today.  I got bit on the hand by a cat on Saturday.  It isn’t a very impressive wound unless you know that I got bit through leather welding gloves but because of the location I had to go to the doctor.  I’m on antibiotics and I got a tetanus shot.  The bite doesn’t hurt at all but that tetanus shot is a killer.  Today is the first day I’ve been able to lift my hand above my head but it still hurts a lot when I do that.  Today’s workout featured pullups, ball slams, and lunges while holding a 25# plate over your head.  Yeah, that wasn’t happening.
