It never gets easier

You just get better.  That’s what I’ve read… Although I’m not sure you get better, or just build a greater capacity for dealing with the “suck”.  When I talk about being sore, or bruised some think I’m complaining.  No one did this to me, I did it all by myself and I’m proud off all the work it took to get there.  :-p  Except ripped hands.  When that happens I probably really am complaining.

As usual, this wasn’t published the day it was written so I have more awesomeness to add:

“G.I. Jane”

100 burpee pull-ups

Time – 22:51 (I think)

What a mental game this one is. I could have said “eff this!” And walked away a few times.  Ok few like a lot.  This week has been HEAVY doses of stuff and parts still hurt a bit from Sunday.  And Monday.  And a LOT from Tuesday…


It’s been a while, but life is good.  Summers are busy, and not the Canadian weather where I want to sit in front of my computer.  This being said, we’ve had some pretty awesome and important WODs lately that I need to document.   Intended to stick to the Tuesday WODs, but I threw a Friday WOD into the mix too cause it left me hurting for days after. When Karen was the dose for today and I realized I either haven’t done it straight up before, or I’ve failed to write about it.  Would love to have a time to compare to next time around!  Tuesday’s are now Benchmark WOD day.  For the last two weeks it was hero WODs, then today Karen.  She is no hero.

Tues. Aug. 11:


For Time:
150- Wallballs 20lbs/14lbs

Time – 8:58

Rx’d the WOD, then scaled the post-WOD run with the dog.  I’d call it a brisk walk, but even then I’d be lying.

Tues. Aug. 4:

30 Rounds of:
5- Wallballs
3- Handstand Pushups
1- Power Clean #225/#155

Time – 41:40

This WOD is Sharon’s fav.  Not sure I can say the same.  My predictions were a little off though, since I expected the wallballs to suck a lot more than they did.  It was the handstand pushups that killed me.  By about round 25, I was well beyond stringing the 3 together and more to the point of needing at least 2 attempts for the 3rd rep, then 2nd and 3rd rep.  Just couldn’t seem to kip hard enough to lock out!  It wasn’t pretty, but I finished it 😀

Fri. July 31:

For Time:
20- Sumo Deadlift High Pull #95/#65
40- Thrusters #115/#75(20)/#65
60- Deadlift #135/#95 #85
30- Alternating Front Rack Lunges #135/#95  #85

Time – ??

Jeezuz!!  I already had PTSD from thrusters in the Open and the Showdown Throwdown.  This didn’t help.  #85 deadlifts?  pffft, piece of cake.  Wrong.  At that point, the empty bar might have felt tough.  Then came the lunges… a few reps I pretty much “took a knee” and had a moment of “oh crap.  I’m stuck.”, but figured it out and finished.  Right before the WOD Coach Dave came over and tossed me a “Rx McDowell.  All the way through, you got this!”  I tried 😀  made it half way through the thrusters before shaving 10lbs off.  While I cried to my bar.

Tues. July 28:

Tuesdays have become Hero WOD day.  Today was a beauty.  Yuko came with me for the first 1.5 mile run, then lay plastered to the floor while I completed the rest.  Pretty happy with my time 🙂  especially while towing a 50lb+ lab.


For Time
1.5 Mile Run
150- Burpees
1.5 Mile Run

Time – 40:19
