Last night, I hit up CrossFit Music City again for my last WOD there. I brought along a guy that I have been talking about CrossFit to in the office here. They put him through a short 3-rounder and he loved it! Another convert… my work is done here.
As for our WOD, all we had to do was 3x 800m run with 2 minutes in between for rest. My times were as follows:
Not too bad, I think. In total, that’s 1.5 miles in 17:15. I tried to push my pace when I could, but there were definitely times where I needed to back off and not overload myself to the point where I would have to walk.
After the WOD, I headed over to Ted’s Montana Grill and got a delicious buffalo rib eye with some broccoli, asparagus, mushrooms, and onions. Absolutely delicious.
Thanks again to CrossFit Music City for letting me get some WODs in this week. As with most CrossFit boxes, everyone was super nice, welcoming, and supportive. If you are ever in the Nashville area, make sure you go check them out and get a WOD on. Ask for Mario.
I am here in Nashville again this week. I resolved that I would hit up CF Music City 2x this week sot that I can get my WODs in. I really didn’t feel like going tonight, but I felt better once I got to the gym and started moving.
People are really nice there and tonight, I finally got to meet Mario, the owner who was also a really nice guy. The WOD was:
5x (22 minute cap)
- 7 thrusters (115#)
- 7 burpees
- 7 GHD sit ups
- 1 suicide*
My time was 15:11.
I kept moving. I didn’t have any intention of breathing fire on this WOD. I kept a relatively consistent pace and did 4 of the 5 sets of thrusters unbroken.
My “sprints” weren’t really SPRINTS. They were more like speed-walking.
I had no intention of breathing fire during this WOD. All I wanted to do was keep moving, and that’s what I did. I finished well before the cut off and actually had one of the better times of the people that were in class.
*Place 4 cones down the length of the gym. Sprint to the first, then back to the starting line, then the second, etc.
Wow, this WOD sucks.
I am here in Nashville (again), so I decided to drop in at CrossFit Music City. Boy, did they have a nice welcome gift for me…
- 400m run
- 30 box jumps (18”, I think)
- 30 wall balls (20# medicine ball)
My time was 35:45.
I kept moving. I took breaks here and there, but I kept moving the entire time. Whether I was walking or stepping up, I tried my best to keep moving.
I took lots of walk breaks after the first 2 rounds. After finishing 30 wall balls, I could barely catch my breath to start running again.
The WODs with 5 rounds are always mentally challenging for me. When you are exhausted after the first round, the rest of the WOD just seems insurmountable at times. I am proud that I finished this one and didn’t give up in the 2nd round like I really wanted to.
I was completely wiped out after the WOD.
After talking to some of the people there and paying my drop in fee, I sped over to Whole Foods and got a delicious post WOD meal. I should have taken a picture of it because it was beautiful, but it was about 1/2 of a sweet potato along with a plate filled 2/3 with meat (1/2 taco beef and 1/2 taco chicken), and 1/3 sautéed peppers and onions.
Thanks CrossFit Music City! Your people are really nice and I am looking forward to coming back next week.
