Weird Weather Day and Push Press 1RM

The morning CrossFit session was cancelled due to the icy roads. Thank goodness for OPM’s unscheduled telework option today!
The morning was already a success because I put the final touches on a poster presentation, and my boss sent it off to our federal partners for review and clearance. And I also figured out my flight plans for a June work meeting. Direct flight to an inconvenient airport (BWI) or 1-stop flight to a convenient airport (DCA)? I went with the second one.

What a weird weather day! Ice, then lots of rain, and then sunshine (?!). There was a new food place that was doing their opening today with free lunch and dinner, but even that was enticing enough for me to venture out in the rain.

Anyhoo, 5:15 PM CrossFit, check! It’s test week! We did push presses today. Last week, I did 3 x 5 at 85 lbs. My 1RM from a few months ago was 90 lbs. I loaded up 105 lbs for my 1RM and was able to get it above my head, but then the coach told me it was really a push jerk. By then, my arms didn’t have anymore gas in the tank to redo it. Oh well! At least I’m getting somewhere!

WOD: 30-20-10 DB snatches (20 lbs) and box jumps (20 inches). After all that’s done, 50 sit-ups. Time: 10:58.

And then I went to 6:30 PM spin class because my legs still had some energy. Whew!
