Biking and a WOD

I had a great Crabtree ride last night with the girls.  The weather was perfect- breezy and not so humid and the rain stayed away.  I led the faster group and found my fast pace on my Blur, it actually didn't feel much different than the 29er bike so maybe I just imagined the fast speed with the big wheels. We tried all the interesting features: log stacks, the rock garden on loop 1, the rooty hill on Loop 3, the rock step up on loop 3 and of course all of loop 6.  After we were done with loop 6, a guy was waiting at the end of it and said we all had pretty nice bikes- an Ibis, Santa Cruz and a Pivot.  I'm not sure if he was surprised to see such bikes with a bunch of girls or just the fact that they were a lot more bike than a place like Crabtree should see. We did about 8 miles total that night.

And my DOMS started setting in after the ride from the morning front squats.  I still went in and did the WOD this morning:
Row 300M
16 wall balls 14 lbs
18 kettlebell swings 35 lbs
20 double unders (I did 100 singles cause Jason was there and didn't think 60 singles was enough!)
5 rounds
Time 24:15
This was a tough workout and really worked my endurance.  Afterward, I worked on my back squats:
65 lbs 5 reps
75 lbs 5 reps
85 lbs 6 reps
I wish I could have done more at 85 lbs but I felt like my form was getting worse on the 6th one and I didn't want to push my luck.  I might try again this week if my soreness goes away.
