The Canadian Junior team won their 5th straight gold medal at the World Junior Championship last night in an exciting game against Sweden.
We have some impressive young talent coming up to the NHL!
I showed up to the base gym this morning to help my friend with his press technique before he is posted up to Pettawawa with the army. He didn't show up so I did some pressing myself.
45lbs x 5 2 sets
65 x 3
80 x 2
95 x 5
100 x 5
105 x 5
105 x 4 - lost focus and missed the last one
105 x 5
My press is weak...it is something I will be working on as part of my fitness goals for 2009. I want to increase my CFT (Crossfit Total) to a more respectable number. Because I am so weak in the press I tend to avoid it....that is going to change...one of the keys to success in crossfit is the practice what you suck at!
CFWU (Crossfit Warm Up) x 3
WOD (Workout of the day)
6 x 400 m row - rest as needed between sets
1:11.1, 1:13.6, 1:16.6, 1:19.5, 1:17.3, 1:18.6
This was really tough, the 400m sprint on the C2 is intense and left me really messed up after each interval. It was just what I needed to realize I can't let my met con slip because cardio pain is the worst.
I went grocery shopping after. Being on the Zone you tend to shop the perimeter of the grocery store, (meats and vegetables, nuts and seeds some fruit, little starch no sugar). Since we buy our meat at cost co, we generally just get vegetables and fruit at Sobeys. Today was amusing because we had a cashier who was on his first day. He was really flustered trying to figure out what every thing was and what the code was for each item, Dani and I helped him out the best we could, "that's a grapefruit, that's Romain lettuce, those are bean sprouts..." and the kicker, "yes that is broccoli." I don't know to feel bad for him or to be jealous because growing up he obviously didn't have to eat his vegetables!
