I’ve suddenly taken an affinity to black workout clothing, tops in particular. If one thing is for certain, I’m going to come home from CrossFit looking like I just rolled thru the dirt. If getting dirty is any indication of my level of effort then I’m definitely going to win something.
As a side note for new CrossFitters – Besides black clothing, I also make sure my tops are form fitted so they stay in place while I’m standing on my head or doing whatever activity is on the board for the day.
The 17th day of CrossFit brought us the Eric K Memorial WOD.
First, let me apologize because I misspoke earlier when I said the run club (and I) finally RX’d a workout. That’s a lie. We modified two things. First we subbed in kettlebell deadlifts for the real deal and second we used bands for our pull-ups. As you may, or may not know, runners are not known for their arm strength. So we suck at pull-ups, or at least I do, everyone else is amazing.
Eric K Memorial WOD
- 8 Deadlifts – 225/135 – Or if you’re in my crew, kettlebell deadlifts #35
- 29 Push-Ups
- 20 Wall Balls – 20/14 – I think I used a 10# ball though
- 12 Pull-ups – I used 2 bands
We then paired with a partner and
my dumbass I panicked cuz I didn’t see the “4 rounds” part of the workout. I thought we had one round (not normal at all but I had like 2 hours of sleep and was apparently delusional) and then we would have to split each of these moves with a partner. Since I’m not one to get out of bed for an easy workout, I suggested that we would do the workout x2. Yep, I did that. And everyone agreed. So basically we did the above WOD like we didn’t have a partner. Instead of 8 deadlifts per round split by 2 people, we each did the full 8 deadlifts. Then 29 push-ups, then 20 wall balls, then 12 pull-ups. Repeat x4. It took exactly 2 rounds for us to be dead on our ass. Yep, don’t CrossFit with me, I’ll just make you work harder. LOL!
So now I can’t lift my arms. Anyone want to swim for me during my upcoming half iron distance TRI on SAT?
