It's been a couple weeks since starting CrossFit - I haven't lost any weight but I have made some noticeable gains in strength!
Today we did 3 power cleans EVMOM for 9 minutes and then in the last minute tried to get as many as we could with good form in that 60 seconds - I did it at 55 lbs. to start, then went up to 60 after two minutes, then up to 65 for the last few minutes. I did 8 reps in the final minute.
Before that WOD we did a plank challenge - 3 planks for as long as possible with a minute rest between. I did 3:35, 1:35 and 1:45 for my times - and I impressed myself with those numbers! I think practicing yogic breathing really helped. I just zoned out and focused on my breathing and the time passed pretty quickly. I trembled some and my shoulders hurt - but I got through it. I'd like to try for five minutes next time we do a plank challenge.
I am doing a Whole 30 during the month of March. Last night I went and got my groceries for the challenge so I'm ready to hit the ground running on Friday. (Esp. important since I'm observing Sabbath for Lent, which means no cooking on Saturday - so I need to make enough food on Friday to get through both days).
