Today’s WOD was insane. Hardest I’ve seen so far no question. Had a few moments of thinking I may just die… but the big mural on the wall at CF Division reminded me “be relentless”. Pre-reading the details last night online, I fully expected the run to be my “recovery” phase and the pull-ups to be my nemesis. Not quite the case… the pull-ups ended up being the cardio recovery and the run kinda sucked more than I expected. The WOD:
Six rounds for time of:
19- Power Cleans #135/#95
7- Strict Pull-ups
Run 400 meters
** I had to scale this insanity back a little, it was a full house at the box today so I ended up with a #45 bar and loaded #10’s on it. It was still a crap load of weight for me, especially as I got deeper in the rounds! Also used a green band for the pull-ups and switched up my grip a few times. My right shoulder is considerably stronger when it comes to pull-ups… Clearly another thing to add to my list of “goats”. I saw stars at times, but I regrouped and kept going. I walked like a drunk between the power cleans and pull-ups a few times, but again kept it together and kept going. The 5th and 6th runs felt difficult to get enough air by the last 100m… but hey
I didn’t want to go. I didn’t want to hear the classic “3, 2, 1, GO!!” But all said and done, I’m so happy I did 🙂 This WOD was a special one. It reminded us all of how lucky we are to be alive and healthy. To be a part of such an amazing team of athletes. To be a “part” of something bigger… Today’s WOD was done by crossfit boxes all over today as a memorial for the 19 firefighters killed earlier this year.
