Before we get to the garage/gym workout, I thought I’d share a few non-workout items.
We took Jada to her first Illinois volleyball game on Saturday.
They are currently ranked No. 10 in the nation. If you are familiar with college volleyball, the B1G Conference is a powerhouse.
They faced No. 13 Purdue and won in 4 sets. I had a brief stint as Purdue’s Director of Volleyball Operations while Spencer was coaching baseball there, so it was really good to see the staff. I loved my job.
Volleyball is such a fun sport to watch. I wish I had played, but it was the same season as high school softball in Nebraska.
Not only was Jada engaged and interested during the match, but we perfected our selfie skills as well.
Okay, not so much. At least, she looks cute!
Daddy even got her a Fighting Illini teddy bear. We stood no chance once she it. She is obsessed with her teddy bear.
Pretty lucky little girl.
CrossFit Hero WOD
A hero WOD is a workout performed to honor a fallen hero (soldier, policeman, or firefighter). Unfortunately, there are a good number of these workouts, a constant reminder of losing good men & women.
We both chose to honor Glen, former U.S. Navy SEAL Glen Doherty, 42, of Winchester, MA, assigned to a State Department security detail in Benghazi, Libya, died in an attack on a U.S. consulate on September 11, 2012.
Because of our garage set-up, we had to modify the 15′ rope climbs with pull-ups.
Spencer used 135# for C & J and did 30 towel pull-ups. I used 90# and did 50 kipping pull-ups.
Hero WODs are tough. They are meant to be. They are not meant to be an everyday workout, but a good reminder of getting uncomfortable and remembering those that have served our country.
We both finished in just over 36 minutes.
