Today was a hard one. I found myself struggling. I went in with an open mind and left with sore hands.
Today Jared taught me how to do knees to elbows, also called KTE. I had a really hard time griping the bar as I am not use to doing any hanging bar exercises. Yes I am 28 years old and never done a pull up so what? I ended up using chalk to get a better grip and it seemed to work. Soon I was mastering the KTE and it became easy.
Then we did the following workout.
3 rounds of each
300 meter row
10 upper arm thrust presses
I did really good until I got to the last set of upper arm thrust presses and I was struggle to get the last three up. I ended up making it in 7:58 which was good according to Jared.
While we were finishing up with some stretches he told me that I was doing good and to keep up the good work. He said I was improving with every class and hopes to see me when he come back on August 9th. Yea this was my last class with Jared as he is going away on a business trip and won’t be back until after my ramp is over. He will be missed.
So I am almost to the halfway point in my Crossfit challenge. I can’t believe it. I have to say I am becoming a little bit of an addict.
