Wallball and kettlebell swings

I didn’t update FitNotes for such a long time for at least two reasons: getting CrossFit 206 up and running took all my attention, and I found recent Movable Type versions more and more cumbersome to use–especially once I compared it to WordPress, which I use to blog on CrossFit206.com. It is so much easier. Recently I’ve been writing my workouts in a notebook, which is so handy to have in the gym, but I still missed blogging them. So now I’ve imported FitNotes as a new WordPress blog in order to carry on using it. I either will or will not add any design elements to it… we’ll see.

Yesterday, in the noon class with Aaron:

10 wallball (20/12#)
10 kettlebell swings (24/20 kg)
10 rounds for time: 9:43

This was such a fun workout (after doing some weighted pull-ups for the strength workout of the day) that it reminded me of the old days at CrossFit North. Getting beat down in a class with other people, even one other person, who I know I can’t quite keep up with–there is nothing quite like it! Certainly not working out by myself, in which case I probably would have been a minute slower.

And the day before yesterday–Monday:

5×3 cleans up to 113 lbs
…and later in the day I ran two miles. I’ve been slowly working up from 1.5 to 3 miles and experimenting with Converse versus Brooks running shoes (ie changing my gait) to eliminate knee pain. I’ve gone three miles at least twice with no pain and hope to do that tomorrow.
