Happy Monday!! (Again!? WTF?!) I figured since I've got a busy end of the week, the pool read-a-thon Monday tradition will have to be postponed again, and I went to the gym instead.
I saw this on IG and chuckled.
Today we worked on our one rep max for back squats and I ended at 123# and know I could have gone up if I had some more time! So I felt pretty good about it! Ben rocked a 240# and looked solid as usual. I love lifting by him so he can watch all of my sets and give me extra pointers.

CrossFit Games Open 12.1 (AMRAP – Rounds and Reps)
Ben: 9+8 (rx)
7-Minute AMRAP of:
Burpees to a 6″ target*
*I did modified burpees where you go down into a plank instead of hitting the ground.
*To keep it low-impact, I also hit my hands to an overhead bar by going up on my toes instead of jumping to reach the taller bar 6" overhead.
7:00 minutes of burpees is no joke. It's like the longest 7:00 minutes of life (actually racing a 5k is probably worse). Plus baby's head is down and it is causing some pain and mobility issues and really makes me want to keep it low-impact (did somebody kick me in the crotch...).
Overall I am feeling pretty good about today! Hopefully your day was fab.
