WOD November 27, 2014

Didn’t have a great workout day.. it was raining like a maniac all day, which doesn’t really have to do with anything, but adds to the misery :p. I went to the 8:15pm class, because I wanted to see my friend who always goes at that time. Meant I had to drive back home first to walk Murphy (in the rain :p) and drive back for the class. But it was nice to see him again :).

The workout was not my favorite..

Strength

– Deadlift

5 reps @ 40%

5 reps @ 50%

5 reps @ 60%

My workout:
I went a little bit heavier. Started with 5 x 95 lbs, then 5 x 115 lbs, 5 x 135 lbs, 5 x 145 lbs and another 5 x 145 lbs.

WOD

“HELEN”

3 Rounds For Time:

– 400m Run

– 21 KB Swings

– 12 Pull Ups

My workout:
This went really bad. My conditioning is so crap since I’m back. I can hardly run a lap without walking. And on Tuesday I ripped my hand during the pull ups so both kb swings and pull ups were horrible now. The kb swings were ok, but I really couldn’t do kipping pull ups. So I took a band to do strict ones, but even then it hurt, so I scaled the reps to 6. I also just wasn’t feeling it energy wise. Before we started I didn’t pay attention and thought the WOD was 4 or 5 rounds. I was falling behind so I started scaling my kb reps as well  and then suddenly after 3 rounds I was done. Felt a bit stupid.

round 1: 400m run (in the pouring rain), 21 kb swings, 6 banded strict pull ups (medium band)
round 2: 400m run (with a tiny bit of walking), 21 kb swings, 6 banded strict pull ups (medium band)
round 3: 400m run (with a tiny bit more walking), 15 kb swings, 6 banded strict pull ups (medium band)

Time: about 12:40 minutes I think :(
