Yesterday was a big day for us, as Clayton and I competed in the “Earn Your Turkey Challenge” at MBS CrossFit. You should see the posts on the event below, as there were a lot of pictures taken and posted!

Today for Clayton, he just came into the gym to do some active recovery. Brian MacKenzie, of CrossFit Endurance, stresses that in order for the body to recover faster, an active warm-down following a big event, or the day after, will aid the muscles faster than taking the next day off. So he came in and just went through the prescribed workout at his own pace. It seemed he was more recovered the following day, which was great!

For Kristin, even though she was there all day to cheer on the CrossFit Lakewood team yesterday, she was ready to lift at speed. We started off with some Deadlifts, working up to a 5 Rep Max. Kristin made her way up to 115lbs for 5 reps, which is only 10lbs shy of her 1 Rep Max. Great job, Kristin!

Strong lift, Kristin. Especially for 5 reps!

For her main workout, Kristin completed a 10-minute WOD, where the time left-over each minute was used as rest before going into the next round.
