07 Nov 15 – Burpees and Kettlebells to end the week

For the first time in months, I found myself back in CrossFit Keelhaul last night. Donna and Steve were there for an Oly Lifting Session and while it was great to see them, the same can’t be said of the box itself. Very disappointingly, it looks run down, tired and poorly maintained. After the work I put in for 18 months with it, it just seems unloved. There are multiple coaches but no one is managing nor apparently leading with actual coaching. It makes me quite sad to see it but I have to move on.

The 3 of us did work well last night and were all able to coach each other, tweaking movements and encouraging big lifts. Well done to Steve for smashing his Clean PR too! I am feeling very fatigued after 4 days of Clean work but was able to work technique for 90mins or so.

Today, I didn’t really fancy working on my own in CFK so remained in the main military gym there for yesterday’s Outlaw CF WOD.

For Time:

10 KB Snatch (alternating) 24kg
10 Burpee Box Jump Overs 24″
20 KB Snatch (alternating)
20 Burpee Box Jump Overs
20 KB Snatch (alternating)
20 Burpee Box Jump Overs
10 KB Snatch (alternating)
10 Burpee Box Jump Overs

Time: 11.41 RX

A lot of hard work done here. KB Snatches were in 10s with just a quick breath only. Burpees Box Jumps also in 10s throughout. I caught myself taking a longer breath during a transition and my goal popped in to my head, randomly. Back down I went and got it cracked. Great end to the week. Day off tomorrow to watch Wales vs Australia.
