Wednesday's Workout

When I drove up to my CrossFit gym for my morning workout, it was still dark. Looking back, I probably should have stayed in bed.

Today's torture:

5-5-5-3-3-3 Front Squats (I'm continuing to work on my form, so I'm still just shy of lifting the equivalent of my bodyweight)

4 rounds (for time) of:

400-meter Cradle Carry (run 400 meters while lugging a 45-pound weight plate)
15 pull-ups

It took me almost 20 minutes to finish all four rounds -- much of which was spent trying to: (1) catch my breath, and (2) get the feeling back in my arms.

When I got home, M was just starting her ChaLEAN Extreme workout, so I popped the Insanity Plyometric Cardio Circuit DVD in the player and did that, too. Bad idea. By the end of Shaun T's 40-minute beat-down, I was dead tired, and it wasn't even 7 a.m. yet.
