Thank you for visiting my blog! My name is Talayna and I am a Physical Therapist with a Crossfit problem. I have led previous lives as a collegiate gymnast and heptathlete, before finding my current passion/obsession at Real Fitness of Naples. This site details my journey through various workouts in preparation for the Crossfit Games.
This weekend was completely off besides some bike riding and mobility. Feels weird to do, but trying to take rest more seriously these days. Today I went in for an hour of mobility work and since my friend and I were chatting I had her snap photos of most of what I did. I started at my feet and just worked my way up doing things that get tight on me specifically. Feels good to prep for the week like this.
bar facing burpees
15:25 – 5:09 4:19 3:09 1:49 0:58
I was most worried about the deadlifts in this cause of the volume of them I haven’t done in a while so today I broke them up on purpose and besides the first set they didn’t feel hard. Went 8/7/6, 8/7 then UB. Looked like they got faster as I went too. The burpees felt fine too, actually it was the HSPUs that slowed it all down. Arms aren’t totally fresh and for some reason they’re worse in the am. Did all singles except for 2 sets :/ you’d think these would be getting better by now. You’d think. I was about 30 seconds slower than my regional time and pretty sure the HSPUs were the slower part. I did a lot of singles at Regionals too but not this many and rested a little less.
Muscle up bi-athlon (try to replicate the distances as best possible
and remember your course so we can re-test this)
15:12 – was going to just go for broke like at the Games and try to get them all with one break but 8 in on the first set I didn’t think my arms had that in them today so came down. Broke 8/6/4 9/6 6/6. The last round was sketchy if I’d had a real judge. Got caught in the bottom of the dip on the last one. Runs felt fine. Had a little push on the 400s and really tried to recover on the 200s.
And the last round into failure town
8 – Felt really good today. Minus just not being as strong in the AM. Back started to get a little tight at work. It feels fine the next day though. Hamstring feels ok too. Muy bien.
