I’d like to start with the fact that… had I not BEEN ON THE COVER OF THIS DAY’S WOD, I probably would’ve cherry picked and gone to yoga or done nothing or cleaned my house or whatever instead. But no… Justin posted a picture of me with Guido Trinidad, the owner of Peak360 CrossFit in Miami and CrossFit Games Athlete, from when I went down to Miami for Ultra.
So I had to go. Of course, we had visitors in town at our box, and a couple guys were like, “Hey you’re the chick from the website! In that picture with Guido!” Yep. That was me.
Skill: Rope Climbs/Legless Rope Climbs
WOD: For Time
2 – Rope Climbs (RX+ Legless)
5 – KB Thrusters Left Arm (55/35)
5 – KB Thrusters Right Arm (55/35)
10 – Box Step Ups with KB (55/35) 20″
I call this one a crier. Cause I totally cried at the beginning of the 2nd round of rope climbs.
Thank GOD there was a 30 min time cap on this one. Once I finished my 2nd full round of rope climbs, I decided that we’d only be doing 3 rounds, instead of 5. Once I had that new, adjusted number in my head, I was ready to proceed. Amazing how that mental shit works. Of course I would’ve gotten through it, but yeah. Rope climbs, although I can do them, are so taxing on me. I LOVE doing them. I love that I CAN do them, but doing them when I’m tired, it’s like double unders. It’s self defeating, the more tired I am. And my hands just hurt. I break down when my hands hurt!
Anyway, I ended up finishing in 27 min and something. 27:26 or whatever. I was okay with that. I did 3 rounds, and both 800m runs, and I had my headphones for it, so we were good. Man that was a rough one.
