Pulling a Fire Truck

This morning I participated in a fire truck pulling event for the United Way over in Bay City. It was a great event and we took down first place!

Pulling a Fire Truck

Our legs were still on fire a couple of hours later as we waited for all of the teams to go and then the trophy presentation. I ended up taking a nap later in the day before going to the gym because I was so exhausted. The nap didn’t even help though. I can’t believe how much a 40 second workout took out of my body.

I had every intention of making it to the 5:30pm class, but I didn’t wake up until 5:15 and was not feeling it. I definitely wanted to get in and do my thruster work, so I dragged my ass to the gym. Warmed up with 5×45# and 5×95# thrusters.

Thruster Attack

Every 1:45 for 6 sets

  • 10×135# Thrusters

Nasty! Made it through though. Have definitely been learning how to pace and breathe on thrusters with all this work. I think the program is working better than expected.

After catching my breath, I went for a 135# power snatch and started to get tunnel vision! Wow, talk about exhausted. I hit it one more time, before switching to something lighter. Did 6 sets of 3 high hang power snatches with 40kg.

I was planning to rest tomorrow, but without hitting a typical CrossFit metcon today, we’ll see how I feel. I really wanted to do the class workout today too!
