I CHOSE to come to this one… brutal as it may sound. And I loved it.
It was the CrossFit Regionals WOD #6, and we had to do the following:
30 min time cap (Thanks Russ) The original time was 15 min
100 DUs or 300 singles
30 Shoulder to Overhead 100lbs for the girls (I RXed the weight!)
90 ft walking lunges with the same 100lb bar in the front rack.
I finished in 20:24!
I did 300 singles, so I could get through them. Turns out, the DUs hurt the shit out of my calves, because of how I jump. Excruciating calf to shin pain that I’m finding is just not worth it. It’s happened every time I’ve done DUs since last Sunday.
My HSPUs I did my old easy peasy way, just lowering myself down enough to touch my head to my stack of plates. 😀 (btw, I finally learned to do HSPUs the right way, coming all the way down and popping/kipping my feet up, it was AWESOME, but for 50 of them, there was no way! I could do maybe 5 the ‘right’ way.)
My 40 T2B, well, I can do T2B, but not many of them. I was so excited that I did them for the Open WOD, but for this one.. I did maybe 10 actual T2B and then resorted to my dinky knees up in the air mod. Frustrating. Russ didn’t want me doing toes to rings, which I could’ve done all 50 with my feet touching the rings, so I did my shitty K2E instead.
30 Shoulder to Overhead just wasn’t a big deal for me. I knocked those out 5-6 at a time. and the lunges, as hard as they were, I just had to get through them. BAM. Done. 🙂
My butt will definitely be sore from the 100lbs of weighted lunges though, looking forward to that!
