one day it'll all make sense.

calm before the storm

So, after taking a rest day on Tuesday and missing what sounded like a crazy but awesome WOD, here’s what was posted for Wednesday:

Come in and enjoy this spicy little beauty we crafted up for your mid-week mystery WOD. Prep those lungs! Filled with both Thrills and Chills! – Dress accordingly, as we will be outside today 🙂

Oh goody.  I don’t like surprises, but I’m getting better at dealing with them.  Since there are no morning classes offered on Wednesdays, I headed right from work for the 5:15 class.  The WOD was awesome 😀 and had a whole bunch of parts:

part 1: 12 minute OTM

odd minute – row, even minute – wallballs — round 1 x15, round 2 x16, round 3 x17, etc…

part 2: 1.5km run.  outside.  in the snow.  and darkness.

part 3: chest press complex, 3 rounds

3 presses, 30 second hold at top, 3 presses, 30 second hold at top, 3 presses, 30 second hold at top

rest 2-3 minutes between rounds, increase weight   55lb, 65lb, 75lb

part 4: 100 bar bicep curls  35lb

bonus – 100 lunges

MAN did it feel great to be back after my day off 🙂

Then today was another day of surprises.  The posted WOD was fight gone bad.  I was a little surprised to see this one again since we just did it a few weekends ago at Toys 4 Tots.  Fooled again!  Instead the WOD was:

Filthy Fifty

50 Box jump, 20 inch box
50 Jumping pull-ups
50 Kettlebell swings, green tape
50 Walking Lunges
50 Knees to elbows
50 Push press, 35 pounds
50 Back extensions 50 Wall ball shots, 10 pound ball
50 Burpees
50 Double unders

Time: 24 minutes FLAT.  Take THAT burpees.  Post WOD, Coach Dave always asks “what did you like about the workout?” and “what did you find challenging?”  If ALL of this sh*t isn’t challenging, I think you’re doing something wrong.  It’s not meant to get easier, cause when it sucks less, we just push ourselves harder.  Isn’t that the whole point?  I was proud of myself that I jumped the box jump portion 😀  I quite nearly ate it at one point, but laughed as I saved myself and stuck the landing 🙂  Double unders are still my nemesis, but knees to elbows went far better than they used to.  The abmats were set out for anyone who coulcn’t complete them, but I didn’t give in to that temptation today 🙂

Post WOD the chaos of my last few free hours of Christmas prep had me running around a little crazy-like.  At least we have come to a mutual decission that Christmas dinner this year will be Paleo cauliflower-crust pizzas and a big salad.  Not very tradional, but neither are we  😉  Seems a little ironic that I consider going to the box the “calm” part of my day lately.  By the time I got to work, I was ready for a nap!  HAHA!!  Not likely when ya work in retail in December!  After sleeping crappy last night (like, I was wide awake at 4am again) I’m going to sleep like a BABY tonight!  🙂
