My Total

Today's WOD was the "CrossFit Total", which is your one rep max of back squat, strict overhead press, and deadlift. You add up your final 1 RM on each to get your total. My total ended up being 520.

I got 205lbs on my squat, which is the weight I've been stuck at for the past 6 months! I tried 210, and almost got it...I pushed and pushed and pushed...but the bar was just not going up. But I AM gonna get that 210 soon, I promise you that! My overhead press was 90lbs, which I was disappointed with, since I have done 95lbs before. 90 felt pretty easy, but I couldn't get it up with just those 5 more measly pounds on there, dang it! But I was happy with my deadlift of 225, which is the most I've ever done, yay!

That was a fun one. :)

Oh-one more thing I thought I'd share. There was this cute little old lady at the gym today jumping rope, a sight that I have never seen! She had to be in her seventies, and I just thought it was the coolest thing. At first she tried a few times and could only get one or two jumps before she messed up, and I could see her shake her head in frustration. But she kept trying, kept messing up, kept trying. You just had to see the look of determination and focus on her face. And then she finally got it, and she was on a roll! It just brought a smile to my face seeing that. :)


  1. Thank you for your posts. I stumbled upon your site a few months ago and really enjoy your insights, stories - like today's about the old lady, and your musings about people wanting instant fitness results.

    One of my favorite quotes that was posted was about not digging your grave w. a knife and true. In fact, I saw a similar quote the other day and it made me think of your blog. The quote was, "nothing tastes as good as fit feels." Nothing wrong with sampling everything, but keeping fit is so rewarding.

    Thanks again for posting,


  2. Thanks so much, Tim! That quote is one of my all time favorites-"nothing tastes as good as fit feels"! Love it.
