Orienteering race (Red course) 1:43:15 [3] 5.86 mi (17:37 / mi) +417ft 16:30 / mi
slept:8.0 shoes: Adidas Supernova Sequence 2


Red course at BCLP.

I had a few minor mistakes, and two less-than-ideal route choices (11 to 12 and then going the wrong way around the lake). Otherwise I was just slow -- being on my feet for 2+ hours beforehand doing registration probably didn't help...

Leif did a really good job setting a fun course at a map I thought I'd never go back to.

Strength / Stretching (CrossFit) 45:00 [3]
slept:8.0 weight:128lbs shoes: Adidas Supernova Sequence 2


- Dynamic stretching to warm up.

- More warm-up -- kettlebell swings (15# - 25# - 35# x 10 each) and ball slams (20# - 30# x 10 each).

- CrossFit Games Weekly WOD #2: as many rounds as possible in 15 minutes -- deadlift x 9 / push-ups x 12 / box-jumps x 15. Women's prescribed weight on the deadlift was 100# (155# for men); box jump height was 20" (24" for men). On the push-ups, we were required to lift our hands at the bottom of each rep (to prove our chest was touching the ground).

Even after two+ years of CrossFit workouts, I still really suck at push-ups -- especially when there are strict range-of-motion requirements like this -- so I was afraid I'd get maybe just one round. But, I was able to complete four rounds plus most of a fifth round (I was six box jumps short of completing round #5 when the clock stopped...).

My super-star partner Tanya completed eight rounds plus some extra reps of a ninth round. The ├╝ber-super-star of the gym, Leah, completed 11 rounds. WOW!
