What an amazing few days we have had in and around Lake Tahoe. Our stay started in Carson City, where we used Air B&B for the first time. We were pleasantly surprised with our accommodation and made full use of the kitchen to cook some healthy food!
We got up early and headed out to Sand Harbor, where we were hoping to bump in to a few bears. To my disappointment we didn’t, but there’s still time…
The highlight of our time here has been paddle boarding, the weather has been perfect and the scenery is just spectacular.
After spending the day relaxing in the sun, we headed to CrossFit South Tahoe. Lake Tahoe sits at an altitude of 6,200ft / 1,900m, which meant that we both found the WOD tough. Our muscles felt slow and heavy on the run and our shoulders seemed to burn out faster than usual on the HSPU. Coach Tom was there to encourage us along the way. He reassured us that most of his foreign visitors struggle with the altitude, so we don’t feel too down hearted!
Today’s WOD –
3 Rounds For Time:
15 x HSPU’s
2 x rope climbs
Emma 15mins, Sam 16mins
2 Rounds of:
Strict military press @ 43/30kg

Crossfit South Tahoe has an awesome set up, with a great outdoor space and even a bouldering wall inside! We enjoyed our workout and are contemplating a quick beach weights session in the morning.
Massive thanks to Coach Tom at South Tahoe for having us!
