31 Heroes WOD.
This was one INSANE workout. I was tired after this week's workouts for sure, but I even took a day off this week and I was still struggling during the WOD to lift even a 105# bar. SHEESH.

31 min partner AMRAP
#1 does 400m sandbag run (45#)
#2 does 8 thrusters (155#), 6 rope climbs, and 11 box jumps (30") until #1 gets back from the run, and then switch off.

I partnered with an ex-Marine, who I work out with fairly regularly. We were both really wrecked from this week's workouts, so we decided on a 105# thruster instead of the 155# cuz it would have been too much for us after the hell we put our shoulders thru in the past few days.

Other than that, we RX'd everything...even for two short (I'm 5'4" he's 5'5") guys we still rocked the box jumps at 30". I can climb a rope like nobody's business so I rocked those out while he was out running. I took my time on the runs, cuz he usually would get thru the thrusters and a few climbs while I was out running. I took care of the rest of the climbs and the box jumps.

It was a good WOD but damn it took forever. Usually a 20 minute WOD is epic...this was 31 frickin minutes!! OUCH!! But I really needed a good workout today. Biking to and from the gym was definitely a great way to round out a tough workout.

Rest day today.  I had an adjustment and a massage.  Nice to let my body rest for a day to recharge.  Tomorrow is the 31 Heroes WOD at the gym so it'll definitely make up for not working out today. 

31 minute AMRAP. It's gonna be crazy.

Today was the repeat of a WOD we did on July 1. My time that day was 21:52.

4 rounds for time of-
10 power cleans 115#
15 burpee over bar
20 KB swing 53#
25 wall ball 20#

Number 1 goal was to beat last time, which I did, by 1 minute, 12 seconds. But my secret goal was to get under 20 minutes. I didn't get sub-20 because I think I went too hard on the cleans in the first two rounds...quick and unbroken. My back started feeling weak in round 3 so I did 'em 2 at a time and the KB swings really took some time cuz my hips were tired.

Let me just say this...
Okay, so that being least I PR'ed this WOD. Progress is progress.

  • SHOULDERS - Snatch

New snatch PR!

Sport #1
  • Crossfit
  • 13m

For time-
9 snatch @ 80% 1RM (105#)
18 ring dips
30 double unders
6 snatch
12 ring dips
30 double unders
3 snatch
6 ring dips
30 double unders
6 snatch
12 ring dips
30 double unders
9 snatch
18 ring dips
30 double unders

I had no idea I was going as fast as I was. I figured I'd be in the 15 to 16 minute range on this. But when I finished my last snatch, I realized I was only at 11:35...I thought I might be able to score somewhere in the 12s. The last set of ring dips really took me a while so my dubs were slow in the last round. But I made 13 minutes flat. I was pretty happy with that, since yesterday's workout was also really tough.

CrossFit run splits.
4 x 400 during the WOD.

My first two were pretty speedy, sub 7 min pace. Actually, my first one was under 630 pace. But by the last 400 I was pretty gassed already so I barely made sub 8 pace.

Split/Pace: 137/627, 140/642, 149/718, 159/758

This was one VERY cardio-intense WOD. Not heavy, although it did use some barbell and kettlebell movements. 30 reps of full-body movements make running VERY hard. Then...burpees after running? SHEESH!!

4 rounds of-
5 min clock:
10 thrusters 75#
10 box jumps 24"
10 KB swings 53#
Run 400m
Remainder of 5 minutes, do max burpees.
REST 2 minutes between rounds.

Score is ONLY the burpees achieved after the run.
My scores were 37, 33, 24, and 22. NOT ONE OTHER PERSON did over 30 in even the first round, nevermind the second. There are some heavy hitters in the 6 and 7 pm classes so we'll see how my score holds up. :)

Either way, I did 116 burpees in a little over 7 and a half minutes. When I returned from the runs, my times left were 2:30, 2:21, 1:32, and 1:31 respectively. I kept up my burpee pace each round, doing at least 13 per minute.

I was naughty over the weekend with alcohol and food. 

Subsequently, my weight is up a little bit this Monday morning but I'll shave it off by tomorrow.  The WOD today will be pretty intense.  Definitely looking forward to it.
