|Abby, Garland, me, and Svetlana the night of my last WOD (for a while) at CFHK|
I am blessed to have such a wonderful CrossFit family at CFHK and to have made friends across the NY CrossFit community. Matthew Bronson, James Quigley, and Blair regularly welcomed me to EVF. Chad Syniec, Alex Wong, PJ, and Chris made me consider moving back to Long Island so I could go to Crossfit Central LI more often. And without Team Dangerous and their prom, who knows if I would have stayed in NY long enough to make any of these friends?
While I miss every one of the amazing people I call my friends in NY, today I am excited to spend my anniversary at Crossfit Identity in Atlanta. As Frank Sinatra said, "It was a very good year."
So what was the WOD on my 1 year mark? A little something called sweat out your last brain cell and pray for mercy. It's actually called the Ghost and was created for Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero and made to mimic a six round boxing match. Thanks Dave Castro!
6 rounds of:
1 minute of rowing (for calories)
1 minute of burpees
1 minute of double-unders
1 minute rest
|you know its a hard WOD when you can barely record your score|
Before I almost threw up on myself, the strength skill was the push press with a 3-3-2-2-1 rep scheme. I miscalculated the amount of weight on the bar and got 2 reps at 95# thinking it was 75#. I went for a 1 rep at 105# but realized what weight I was actually using and psyched myself out and dropped it. It was also just really heavy and I should have tried for 100# instead. This tells me that I am stronger than I think I am and should push myself more.
