Dear Cindy, I’m Moving On

It was good taking a day off yesterday. I’m feeling refreshed, yet a little tired. My leg is pretty nasty looking and by the amount of pulling I feel on the skin when I move, I think it’s going to take a long time to fully heal. The side of my head still hurts too. Going off the Vicodin today though. Went in to the 11am class.

Warm-up

5 Rounds

  • 1m V-ups
  • 1m Russian Twists (30# KB)
  • 1m Side Plank (30s each side)
  • 1m Leg Lifts
  • 1m Bicycles

It’s been awhile since we did one of these 17 minute ab routines.

WOD

We had the choice between 4 different workouts today. There were only 3 of us in class and we all picked the same one.

“Cindy”
20:00 AMRAP

  • 5 Pull-ups
  • 10 Push-ups
  • 15 Air Squats

If you know my story, you’re aware that “Cindy” and I have a bit of a history. I got my revenge on Cindy about 4 months ago when we did it with chest to deck push-ups and I managed 18+11. Today we did a normal Cindy which doesn’t have the strict push-up standard and I got 20+6. I thought I remembered setting a goal of 20 rounds by the end of the year, but seems I set the bar high with 22 rounds as my goal! I think I can get there with a little more push. The push-ups were a bigger struggle today than I remember.

I think I can finally stop obsessing over “Cindy” and move on. There are plenty of WODs in the sea.

Finisher

10 Prowler Sprints (25y high, 25y low, 90# of plates on the light prowler)

These felt pretty easy.

Will probably get in some snatch work later today out in the garage with a couple of other people. The team competition 6 of us are doing next week had a WOD where everyone has to go for a max weight snatch and clean & jerk. I haven’t done heavy snatches since February so need to get an idea of what I can do.
