Kalsu is my official anniversary WOD at CFTC. I have done really great, and I have done really poorly at it. I have now done it 4 times, and I’m hoping I’m in better shape next year when I have to do it again.
This was my first year RXing the weight, but I got killed by the burpees. Last year, I did 20lbs under the RX weight at 75, but was able to almost do 5 burpees each round. This year, about 8 min in, I went from 5 burpees to 3 burpees and just said fuck it. Tried my hardest to do as many thrusters at 95 fucking pounds in each of the remaining 30-40 seconds, but oh my god it was awful. Two years ago I did all the burpees, and used 65lbs the whole time.
I also went to the 7a class, which I never do. I wonder if not eating anything had anything to do with it? I can make all the excuses I want, I simply am not in the same shape now that I was a year ago. Unfortunately.
Only I can change that though. I say it every now and then, but usually stuff like this is a good kicker and motivator for me to get my shit together. So here we go.. Time to get serious again.
