Helen

Completed Helen yesterday.  My time was 14:05.  Slllllooooooowwwww.  And there’s really no excuse for that.  I used a 1 pood kb (Russian weight for approximately 36 lbs) and a green band for assist on the pull ups.  Charlotte still kicked my ass.  She’s faster than I am… and she’s in much better shape.  But still.

I’m thinking of quitting my second job (definitely will… just have to decide when) so that I can devote 2-3 hours a day to CrossFit.  The police academy will be no joke, so I need to be prepared for physical torture, basically.  I think 2 hours of CrossFit every single day is just about on par with torture… in a good way.

Also, we have CFTs this weekend.  (CrossFit Totals).  In case you aren’t familiar with CrossFit, this just means the sum of a person’s best 1 rep max of dead lift, press, and squat.  My goal is 409, which will put me right at intermediate level.  If I get higher than that, I’ll be very pleased.  I’m not even thinking about getting lower than intermediate.  Not gonna happen.

 

In case you were sniggering, my press was only 65 but for 15 reps, and I was able to do it without any problems.  I imagine that I’ll be maxing with 85 this weekend.

My goal is to be in the advanced category by March.

Check out this weight lifting standards chart I found from the Aasgaard Company.  It’ll give you an idea of where you stand.  Feel free to share where you stand and how long you’ve been training, too.  You know I’m interested because I’m nosy and competitive.

I’m laminating it and putting it in my new CrossFit journal.  😀  Yup… I’m really making one.  I’m going to print everything, then get the local office supply store to bind it together.  I’ll post pics of it tomorrow so you can see how awesome it is.  What I really want is a WOD book from sportsjournals.com, but alas, I have a monthly budget that is calculated to the dollar.

In other notes, Paleo is difficult when on a strict budget.  Mostly because I want to buy the coconut flour, almond flour, etc to make pancakes, cookies, bread, etc.  Pretty much all the things that I’m not supposed to eat anyways.  Other than that, it’s not too bad.  I got a whole duck from the store a few days ago (on deep discount because those bitches ain’t cheap), and I’m waiting (impatiently) for it to thaw so I can remake the honey seared breasts that I had in Paris, France in May.  I’ll make sure to document this attempt for your entertainment later.
