The CrossFit Games Open 17.1 left me much more sore than I thought I would be.  My lower back and the outside of my glutes are still barking from that workout.  I tried some cupping on my spinal erectors which really seemed to help.

I figured that we really needed to move these areas and clear out the lactic acid so how better than with a bunch of back squats and running.


Back Squat 5-5-5-5-5


Minnekahda Crippler

20 Back squats @ 185

Run 1 mile

20 Back Squats @ 185

I finished in 9:39.  Trevor at 9:01, Kevin at about 9:15.  My previous best was in the high 8s and I felt like I could have gotten there today but lost it a bit on the last 5 back squats and had to regrip the bar by setting it down.

We finished with 10 minutes of gratitude which cleared out some grungy thoughts and made Jody feel like "warm and fluffy laundry"

Mission accomplished!
