185# kicked my butt…and my back! As much as I would like to retry this one, I don’t think it is worth the wear and tear on my back.  As a personal trainer, I was not very happy to see this WOD show up.  It’s not the movements, it the increased weight with increased reps. Yes, people should be able to step away and say this is too heavy or I’m too fatigued to continue, but in the competitive environment that is very unlikely to happen.  Instead people get their backs all jacked up or throw it out like I saw someone do at my box.  It is just a very dangerously designed WOD.


Get Lucky 7K race!

This was my first race of the season, and boy am I out of practice!  I forgot to plug in my phone, so I started by *luckily* waking up to my internal alarm clock; then nearly forgot my race packet and chip because it’s so foreign to me to have to pin a number on myself; I way under dressed for the weather and the fact that we would be running along the river…but once I got to the race site, I felt ready to rock. The Get Lucky was a fun race environment and full of green costumes! My only complaint was the line up of pacing.  On the website it said they would send out elite, 7 and 8 minute paces out right away at 9am, and then 9 and 10 minute paces would follow at 9:15am, finally ending with 11 minute and slower paces as the last heat.  Well between the announcements being muffled and unclear and people just not knowing where to place themselves, there were tons of walkers/slower paced people in front of me, to the point that when I reached the finish line I had to dodge some walkers to cross it. Very frustrating.  I know this is a fun run, but I also wanted to see what I was capable of coming into my first race of the season.  I am happy with my time, but I know I could have been faster had I not had to dodge runners/walkers the whole 7k.  Again, other than that is was a great race, complete with Irish bands on the course and beer at the finish.

Today will be a recovery day from 14.3…time to get out the foam roller, lacrosse ball and compression socks.
