I May Be Old, But I’m Still A Bad Ass!

on September 5, 2013

So, today was my birthday. Other than a birthday lunch with my co-workers, there wasn’t much celebrating today.  Instead, I went to a CrossFit class after work and after that headed straight to the rink to play my first hockey game of the season.  We won!  Yay!  I will be celebrating with my family for a nice dinner out tomorrow night…plus tomorrow I’m getting a massage.  I can’t wait! 

I’ve had a busy week at CrossFit, and I’m hurting (it hurts to lift my arms!), so that massage tomorrow afternoon is going to be AWESOME!  Tuesday and Wednesday’s WOD made many sore muscles, but today’s WOD beat me up the worst. 

The WOD was a repeat of what we did back in May.

In May, I used a big, thick band, a light pink kettle bell, and a 16 inch box.  I completed 206 reps.  Tonight I used a much thinner purple band, a 1 pood (35lb) kettle bell, and a 20 inch box.  That is just about Rx.  Although I can now do an unassisted pull up, I didn’t think I would be able to do multiple rounds of 8, so used the band.  It was a good decision. 

Tonight, I only did 203 reps, but all at a tougher level, so I’m pretty happy about that.  I skipped the GHD sit-ups since class ran a bit long and I had to get to the rink for hockey. 

So, here’s the beat up part….check out my hands…

Apparently 56 pull ups and 70 kettle bell swings was a bit more than my hands could take. 

I’m such a BadAss!

How was your Thursday?  One more day ‘til the weekend!!
