A big “Thank You!” to Crossfit Amped in Bellevue, Washington for hosting me at their box this week. Great box, great coaches, friendly people. The funny thing is that I woke up at 5:15 AM, still on east coast time, crawled out of bed on very little sleep, and decided that I would drag myself to the box even though I felt dazed and confused. The WOD consisted of snatch work (20 minutes on the minute) followed by rowing sprints. On the first 500m piece I sat down, didn’t even check the drag factor, and just blasted off without thinking. I ended up setting a surprise PR of 1:29.2 and got to ring the “PR Bell” at the box. This is the second time recently that I’ve set a PR when I felt absolutely horrible – go figure, sometimes it happens when you least expect it. I’ll tuck those away for the days when it goes much worse than planned!
