I did a CrossFit partner workout yesterday with my dear friend and police lieutenant, Lori. Only 7 minutes long, I guess the rest of the gym had had a hard week of workouts. We did a bunch of rope climbs and handstand pushups, as well as some light (135lb) deadlifts. The handstand push-ups were assisted, and hurt my head. It would seem one really does build up a tolerance to being upside down, and I apparently have lost it. We did 3 max weight thruster clusters before the WOD, and I got to 95 pounds, though I could have gone a bit heavier.
I ran three miles on the treadmill at StaFit later in the evening, a 6.5mph pace, and it felt fine and good, minus the left achilles which is starting to make itself known...and really actually makes me nervous. I can't have that bother me again! It's so debilitating!!!!! Today I stayed off it and biked a couple miles each way to Caribou for my study sesh, and then swam a half mile tonight at StaFit. Super hot day, so good time for it. I completed it in around 15:30, resting about every 100m for half a minute or so after the first 200.
