Only two-thirds of the “Salty Special?” What gives?
Morning classes, you’re letting us down. We need tips!
Coming off of a 3 day break I was excitied to get back to Crossfit — and then I looked at this WOD last night and thought “Oh no!”
I figured it must be a rule that if you are in the WOD picture you must actually do the WOD, so I sucked it up and went.
Was glad to see my blog buddy Steph! 🙂
Coach Sara ran a great class.
This was a killer workout. I had a hard time deciding between 135/185 for the squats but with some “encouragement” from Coach Chris I went with 185.
Managed to do 10/8/6 for the squat portion. First set was challenging. 2nd set was rough and the third set really took everything I had. Really had to work hard on the fundamentals of breathing and posture on that last set. I was hoping to stay at 8 reps for that set but that just wasn’t in the cards today.
Burpee rounds were also very challenging. Each round I would get to the 30 second mark and think it was going to be OK and then I would start losing gas right after that. Did manage to go 20/18/20. Really had to dig deep for the last 2 burpees to make 20 for the last round but that was the goal I had set for myself starting that round.
After class we did find out what the missing third of the “Salty Special” is and it seems like that would be “fun.”
