I'm not sure if it was just me, but I think my CrossFit Coach may have been smoking a little something when she made up this workout. I kid, I kid. (Hi Tammy!) Seriously though this may have been the absolute hardest workout I've done at CrossFit yet.
Last night I thought about skipping CrossFit altogether today since I've been feeling really sore, but I decided this morning I was going. When I got there, however, and saw the WOD (Workout of the Day) I wanted to turn around and leave.
50 Medicine Ball Thrusters (12 lbs for first 2 rounds, 10 lbs for last round)
50 DU (double unders) or 150 single jump ropes (I did the singles and peed myself the whole time. I wish I was kidding)
50 Front squats 45 lbs (AS PRESCRIBED!!!!)
50 boxjumps 20 inches (AS PRESCRIBED!!!!)
50 Full Sit ups
I thought the thrusters would be the "easy" part. Basically picture squatting holding the ball chest height and then standing up and pressing it overhead. Yeah not easy.
Next up jump rope. Not recommended for a mother of 3 with a weak bladder. How embarrassing. I might have to skip jump rope days or start wearing Depends to CrossFit.
The front squats are really hard for me. I know I wasn't going near as deep as I should have been, but I did the best I could. It's not my legs that bother me, however, it's my wrist (the one that was broken) and my poor form in general. I can't seem to get my elbow up (due to my bum shoulder).
Tracey captured me doing some of the last exercises. Box jumps! I had NEVER done box jumps before in my life before last week and today I did the box jumps as prescribed. 20 inches baby. It was difficult but completing them was so, so rewarding!
Sit ups suck!
And finally I finished and I didn't want to stand up.
Anyway, I completed the workout in 42:27. It was 42:27 of pure hell and it was pure satisfaction.
