Tuesday WOD and mountain biking!

I missed going to the gym yesterday because I wanted an extra hour of sleep. Today I woke up at 5 am and couldn't go back to sleep so there were no excuses for missing the WOD:
Back Squats 3-3-3-3-3-3 Weight: 67-75-85-95-105-105 lbs
Then a mini-WOD:
One minute sumo deadlift high pulls 55 lbs  24-18-20 reps
rest 30 seconds
One minute box jumps 24-24-26 reps
rest 30 seconds
Repeat for 3 rounds
The mini-WOD is to prepare us for the Fight Gone Bad workout which is going to happen on September 22nd. We are going to raise money for the NC Autism society.  It looks like this year the official Fight Gone Bad workout that raises money for the Wounded Warrior project had a tiff with Crossfit headquarters and they have gone their separate ways (lawsuits tend to do that).  I am glad I at least got to do FGB last year "officially" but this year, it will be a homegrown charity fundraising event and not part of a national effort.  I hate that two behemoths couldn't work something out because it feels like the whole importance of the event (helping soldiers and their families) was irrelevant to both parties, and I believe it was irrelevant to them because they were willing to burn down the Fight Gone Bad name in order for one party to "win".  What the hell there is to win for a non-profit is still something I can't figure out yet. But it's not the worst thing that has happened this year so we will move on and have our own little charity event to help autistic kids which is a cause I can definitely support.

Post-work, I went to Lake Crabtree to run and bike. The run never happened, my quads were feeling pretty tired (from the back squats?) so I just did a short bike lap and then met up with the other women for the Tuesday night girls' ride.  We did about 9 miles.  It was a good time, the weather was perfect and after it was over, so many of the women stayed a little longer to chat! I loved it, and am going to miss it now that the sun is setting earlier and we are going to have end these rides until spring.
