What is it about heat and humidity that makes me feel a bit rotund? Add hot flashes to the mix and you have one warm wonderwoman. Dipping in the pool occasionally helps. And I often pray to the electric fan god by humbly kneeling right in front of it and meditating (thank you for electricity, O God of the Fan).
Superman and I have tackled a handful of workouts this week. My elbow-pits are so sore, I'm finding it difficult to reach for things (please pass the blueberries, would you, love?).
I have to hand it to Alex at Crossfit Mountain View. He does a fantastic job with warm-ups before the WOD. The old Crossfit adage, "our warmup is your workout," is well-represented there. :)
Q. How can you tell if you're having a hot flash during a Crossfit workout?
A. You can't.
Friday (at Crossfit Mountain View)
6 min AMRAP:
10 KB swings (1.5 pood? I don't remember what weight I used)
5 burpees short of completing 5 rounds
Saturday (at Crossfit Mountain View)
50 air squats
Tuesday (at Crossfit Santa Clara)
40 push jerks @ 62 lbs.
100 jumping air squats
50 ring rows
50 KB swings (1.5 pood, I think)
Thursday (In honor of the Crossfit Games, a poolside workout made up by Superman)
(Superman did pullups. I couldn't reach the awning he was using, so I skipped them)
10 air squats
20 jumprope singles (Superman did doubles. No way was I doing double unders in my bare feet)
