Yesternight’s Workout:


We all made it through four rounds,


15 burpees
10 toes-to-bar
5 vertical jumps
20 tuck-ups
200m run


Oh, it hurt so good.


Yesternight’s Workout:


Got my ass handed to me by my Flexibility and Stretch class
(don’t let the gentle name fool you!),
but in part because we did this on Tuesday:


100m Sprint
10 20# KB Swings
100m Sprint
12 Head-touch Pushups
20 Jumping Lunges
10 V-Ups


My ass.
Is so sore.

Yesternight’s Workout:


Oh, man. It sucks to come back after a week off.


1min Burpees


10 inchworms
200m run
20 lunges
20sec L-sit

Seriously, this was kinda weak-sauce for us,
but also to be expected after being away for a bit.

‘s all good–we’re back to it now!

Yesternight’s Workout:



1 min Spiderman Plank
20 pushups
20 situps
20 lunges
10 Russian Twists (20# KB)


(I am both amused and annoyed by the fact that standard pushups
are harder for me than just about any other variation.)

Yesternight’s Workout:


Friday’s workout, actually:

x3 (I know! I KNOW.)

10 inchworms
1 min hand-touch plank
1 min spiderman plank (HOLY CRAP)
15 squat jumps
10 superman rocks


We were going to try for five rounds, but by the time we hit three,
it was DEATH.

The hand-touch planks are amazing,
because they force you to hold your hips still,
and you’re training your body to hold your weight on three points
instead of four.

But the winner in terms of pain?



I got the idea from my friend Charlotte,
and her time with the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleading squad.

It is fantastically challenging–
I think I only made it for 20 seconds or so before flopping like a dead fish.

Expect to see more of those in our workouts. 🙂

(Sorry, Jessie!)


We work out at a public park that’s kinda
centrally located to the Crossfit Buddies’ homes.
In the wintertime, it’s AWESOME, because we have the jungle gym
and sidewalk to ourselves,
but now that it’s summer?

We have to wait our turn for the monkey bars, too.
And we get funny looks from five-year-olds,
who can’t understand why we’re frowning when we’re at the PLAYGROUND.

I have to mutter “fuuuuccccck” all quiet under my breath,
instead of hollering it to the heavens,
or giggling with Jessie and Katie when the burpees are just too much.

Come back, winter!
I want to swear out loud again!

Yesternight’s Workout:


(and what I can remember of Friday’s workout…)



20 squat passes (#20 KB)
1 hill run (200m) (I did 20#KB Clean and Press, 6 each arm)
10 butt swishes, L/R
20 walking leg circles




10 burpees
20 mountain climbers
10 star jumps
10 bench jumps (I did KB presses)
10 toes-to-bar
L-hang rotated with
10 20# KB snatch


Biaggio came to join the crazy tonight!

(…We’ll see how the busted ankle feels today
after doing those star jumps…)

Yesternight’s Workout:



10 Lateral Pushups
20 Lunges (I did squats)
10 Leg lift and lower
1 200m hill run (I did 10 20# KB thrusters and 6 KB snatches, each arm)
20 sit-ups


Not bad.
Not bad.

My friend Kevin (who got me into Crossfit) is also suffering a foot injury,
so we were making jokes about how gooooood our abs are going to look by the time our tendons heal. 🙂

(Also, does anyone have suggestions for decreasing wrist pain
while doing push-ups?
I’m fine, but The Artist Formerly Known as The Roommate and The Boyo have pretty bad wrist pain when they’re doing push-ups, and it would be nice to have a solution for them.)
