Day 37 at CrossFit brought us very cold temps. Only two of us went outside to run cuz well, some of us would rather run than do anything else. Once we got back inside, I noticed that we had a full Murph lined up on the board. Luckily it was a partner workout and I was able to split Murph with one of my best running friends. Oh, and instead of the running part of a regular Murph we would be rowing instead. Uh oh. That added a new challenge.
Team “Rowing” Murph – 2 Person Team
- 4 x 400 m Row – Each team member rows 400m 2x
20 Rounds of the following – One team member goes thru a full set, then switches. So I did one round, then waited as my partner did a round. Each of us did 10 rounds. I think we were all done 3/4 of the way thru but we powered thru the last 3 or 4 sets.
- 5 Ring Rows
- 10 Push-Ups
- 15 Squats
Then back to the rowing machine to finish out with another group of 400m rows. Dang that was tough!
- 4 x 400 m Row – Each team Rows 400m 2x
Our team time was 31:33 and we were pushing. My quads still hurt and we are two days “post Murph”. Those “hero” workouts tend to really tear me up!
Day 38 – Mile run then short workout
21-15-9 (Three rounds of the following, first round 21 reps, second round 15 reps, 3rd round 9 reps.
- Kettlebell Swings – 26# – The Kettlebell has fast become my favorite piece of “equipment”. It’s such a good builder of strength without actually making me feel as if I’m “lifting weights”. I’m not a big weight lifter but I WANT and NEED to be strong. The kettlebells work perfectly for that and they just make me happy.
- T2B (Toes to Bar, or Knees to Chest if your live in my world)
Then we finished out with 50 sit-ups and 50 superman’s.
