CFCM represented in a big way at Barbells 4 Boobs tonight at CrossFit Newport Beach. It was a fun night for a great cause! We had two athletes on the podium at the end of the night and a lot of PRs. I especially enjoyed having my friend, Danielle Haener there. She’s a friend from high school and just recently joined CFCM!
30 Clean & Jerks for time @ 95#
My goal was just to finish under the 10 minute time cap. I’ve never officially done Grace Rx at 95#, although I have done C&Js at 95# so I knew I was capable. I’m happy with my time of 6:33. Last year at the same event I did it with just 65# and I’m pretty sure it took me well over 6 minutes. I felt like I was out on the floor forever and 95# started to feel really heavy, but I finished well under my goal time and it felt great!
My eating today was a little off. I didn’t really break the rules, but I didn’t exactly stick to my usual pre-planned meals. Breakfast was a protein pancake (eggs and protein powder) topped with peanut butter. Lunch was chicken sausage and then I had a protein shake around 5:30pm. I did Grace around 7pm. They had scrambled eggs, bacon and the most delicious looking, tempting fruit at the event. I ate about 2 eggs and 1 very tiny piece of bacon around 8pm and resisted the fruit.
Tomorrow morning is another event, the CrossFit Sports Series: SUP Boarding in Newport’s Back Bay. We did this last year and it was a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to doing it again tomorrow!
