50-40-30-20 and 10 rep rounds of:

My time: 13:07 Rx
(way off my PR)

We did the WOD first today which is different from our usual order. I wasn't looking forward to Annie, but I did ok. My double unders have gotten so bad lately that I was afraid to even try. However, I had several good sets and managed to finish under 15 minutes (a self-imposed time limit).

Then came the strength WOD - Wendler Back Squats

I debated on even doing squats. But I felt like I should use my hour up. So, I started in with my warm up sets. 5-5-3 @ 75-95-110 Then on to the work sets. Got the first set of 5 at 140. Then moved up to 160. And all the emotion of the last week of so stared to hit me. I could feel tears coming to my eyes but I just pushed it back. Did my 3 reps at 160 and loaded up for the 1 rep at 175. Nearly crying by this point, I just focused all my emotions into doing perfect squats and I hit 4 reps at 175 (this is a PR!!). I felt awesome!!! But I had to get the heck out of there, because I was just about to lose it.

I sat and wrote a few things down, said a few words to some people around me, and quickly got to my car. As soon as I put it in reverse, I just lost it - I cried all the way home, and prayed. Honestly, it was just what I needed to do!! I'm so bad at holding my emotions in.

I feel incredibly uplifted and happy today.



  1. Angie, you are so strong, but you don't have to be strong all the time. It is so good that you felt more open after digging deep in your workout. CF can expose all of our fears and pain and if we can learn to face them in our workouts, we can face them in life, too. Luv!

  2. Erin you really got a good pinte there! :) i will remember that!
