one day it'll all make sense.


This morning was quite possibly the best Friday coffee WOD of all time.  HUGE turn out and wicked-fun workout.  Get this – something you will rarely hear me mention outside the confines of my own head – I KILLED IT!!  Like, 70 box jumps (yes, JUMPS.  We’re talkin’ on AND off and the Rx height 20″), speedy Gonzales through the burpees (pretty burpees.  I know, I know.  oxymoron) AND #35 kettlebell swings the real way (overhead).  I felt unstoppable 😀  It was awesome!  Then, when I got home afterwards I learned that the “killed it” feeling was mutual.  Had breakfast, then needed a nap!  That’s unheard of.  Trust me it happened, and for the last few hours I’ve been fighting to keep my eyes open at work.

Thurs. June 26:

I’m going to call this week – the week of the pull-up.  3 of the 4 WODs I’ve been to (I think… might be 4 of 4) we’ve been on the bar in some context.  My hands will confirm this.  Gnarly.  Today’s WOD didn’t sound too bad.  The row is kinda long, but only 15 Clean and Jerks and I don’t have an aversion to air squats.  Sh*t!  I underestimated the row!  Kept up my efficient rowing skills for the 1000m (2nd person off the rower), but didn’t anticipate the wobbly legs that would carry me from the rower to the bar!  Jeezuz!  Now those legs are the same ones I’m going to count on while I haul 75lbs over my head?  Really?  The clean and jerks were my biggest time suck for sure!  After 10 minutes of hell came the lovely pull-ups.  Something just clicked!  I pulled off the best few sets of kipping pull-ups to date 🙂  Then the wheels fell off entirely.  But I’m CLOSE!!  🙂

Part 1. AMRAP, 10 minutes:
1km Row
15- Clean and Jerks, #135/#95    #75
100- Air Squats   78 (time ran out)

**Part 2. Unbroken Chest-Bar Pullups
8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8  8 rounds of 3-4 reps
1 Minute Rest between sets

  1. Don’t you love it when it all goes well! It was pull up week at my box too. Sooooo many. My hands and arms are toast. Thankfully I’ve got 4 days off relaxing at the cottage to recover. Happy weekend!
