one day it'll all make sense.

go for broke?

I keep telling myself – Stop being lazy!  Write about yesterday already!  What’s my “excuse” I keep coming up with?  I’m tired.  :p  But as Dave always says… “Sleep is the new broke.”  Get UP, get MOVING.  At least I DID get my butt to the box this morning 😀  After taking Friday off to give my body the rest I anticipated it would need for yesterday, then taking yesterday off from the box again to do a different kind of crossfit, Badass Dash style, I was revved up to get back at it again today.

Badass Dash, last of the mud runs for this kid in 2013.  I have somewhat mixed feelings about it too.  I don’t do cold.  If you are of the belief that we “choose” our parents, etc before birth, I don’t agree.  I don’t know how I could ever have chosen birth into a country that experiences cold winters.  It didn’t snow or anything crazy on Saturday, but when you are competing in an obstacle race that involves getting sprayed with water very early on, and again repeatedly every time your clothes start to dry off slightly and the shivering subsides, it better be toasty out.  Thankfully the sun was out, but I still froze my a** off.  Unfortunately for my poor running partner, who was attempting this sort of badass for the first time, she rolled her ankle early on in the race.  After that, we walked.  For 2 hours.  Wet.  On a brighter note, the obstacles in this race were mostly awesome.  🙂  30 in total, although I don’t consider the “15 push-ups” after running up the ski hill, down the ski hill, then up again, an obstacle.  Or the “5 somersaults or rolls”.  So, lets say 28 obstacles, k?  And we survived 🙂

badassdash 7Back in the box this morning!  🙂  A fun met con (I think… still haven’t asked what exactly the term means, but there were no squats, so I’m going to roll with it)


Death by Rowing: 100m-200m-300m-400m-500m… Etc..
Death by Burpees: 10-15-20-25-30… Etc
Death by Wallballs: 15-20-25-30-35-40… Etc
**Increase Reps/Meters every 3 Minutes until unable to achieve number or distance**

I was in “group 2”, so we actually started with burpees, then wallballs, then rowing.  Made it through 6 rounds of burpees (last round 35), 5 rounds of wallballs (last round 35) and 3 rounds of rowing (200m, 400m, 600m).  Could have gone farther on each, but I had to work at 11:00, so everything had to fit in an hour 😉

Once again, feels like I could eat a hippo.
