For the first time I really didn´t feel like going. It takes a lot of will power to get up at 7am on a Saturday morning to drive half an hour to a work out :p. But I was happy I went anyway. It was a short workout compared to the one we had last week on the beach. This time we got divided into two groups (of twelve) and there were 5 stations placed around the beach (with a little bit of running distance between them). Everyone in the group had to do all exercises on all stations, but you weren´t allowed to continue to the next station until everyone in the group was finished. If you were fast you had to wait in a plank position until all members of the group were done with the exercise.
The exercises were:
15 hand stand pushups (one of your team mates would keep your feet up)
10 bear walks (walk using both hand and feet)
30 jump overs (jump over another teammate crouching or lying down)
50 sit ups
That was one round. And we had to do two.
The hand stand push ups were surprisingly easy, mostly because my partner pretty much just pulled me up haha.
I absolutely hated the bear walks. They were awful. Almost as bad as the frog jumps. Before we started it was set to do 20 of them. But after doing 1 bear walk I think the coaches realized it would be too much so luckily they changed it to 10.
The rest of the exercises were quite easy. It´s just hard to do so many of them, in the sand.
I felt a little bad after this WOD though. Because our team was faster than the other team so we “won”. But I cheated a little bit. On the bear walks I didn´t do ten when we moved onto the next round. I gave into peer pressure. I was a bit behind when everyone was already in plank waiting for me. And they wrongly assumed it was my last walk, even though I was only on my 8th, but I was too self conscious to correct them.
Afterwards I felt really bad and I definitely won´t be cheating from now on anymore! They will just have to wait for me. Or help me out, because that was also allowed, if one team member struggles keeping up, another team member can help out by doing more (so I could have done 8 and someone else 12 for example).
I think of all WOD´s up till now this was my least favourite. But that´s mostly because I felt like a big cheater afterwards.
