(12/26/12) Today we got an epic snow storm in Cincinnati. People could not or would not drive in this crap. Well I’m not normal people, so I headed out to an open gym session at Calibrated CrossFit (309) in Mason, OH. I kind of expected this but I was the only one there. I was given the room and told to play whatever I wanted. I took to my normal programming that day and hit a 2x20 back squat at 175 & 275. Then I hit a 5x5 Deadlift 155, 245, 335, 415, & 435. Finally I hit a 2x20 bench of 115 and 165. I was kinda bummed I did not get to meet the owner, but I did meet his partner. They had a program much like we do at home at Integrated Fitness, only with different rooms. I enjoyed to solitude and the lifts, wish I could have gotten a better feel of the community there. Oh well, next time! Thanks for letting my play!
The weather cleared a bit so I headed over to the DMV to get new tags for the Jeep. Too bad it was really close to CrossFit Anax (310) in Cincinnati, OH. I went in and saw the previous class hitting a chipper. I did not get that luxury though. The class did their back squat portions and I helped the girls out before I got a slap in the face with the WOD. “HEAVY GRACE” HG is painful no matter how you slice it. 30 Clean and jerks @ 225 is how the game is played. I was the only one going Rx, so I figured a goal was to just finish it. I took my time, all 19:59 of it. I did it, no misses. It was brutal and I was wrecked. The class was nice, some people cheered on others. I had a good time at Anax. It’s not fancy but it gets the job done and I’m glad I made the stop. I even ran into my friend Sarah’s boss who was hitting the WOD with me.
Well time to get the tags. Let’s see what our ride home has in store.
