Crossfit Day 10

July 20, Wednesday
- My arms, back & abs are sore from yesterday’s WOD, mainly from the kettlebell swings. Today’s WOD looks intense. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to do it but I’ll try my best.

– 50 Pull-Ups (blue & red band), 400m run, 21 Thrusters (33lb), 800m run, 21 Thrusters (33lb), 400m, 50 Pull-Ups for Time. My Results: 27:31 minutes.

After the pull-ups, my arms were dead tired. I thought the run would be pretty easy, but the last stretch is uphill & it takes a toll on you. Once you’re huffing & puffing from the run, you try to do your Thrusters. They weren’t too bad at first, but it really takes a lot out of you after doing 21 repetitions. The 800m run was torturous. Thankfully it wasn’t scorching hot out otherwise I would have passed out. I was keeping pace w/ Caite so it helped us w/ the uphill. She needed me to keep her going too. I needed her for company. Downhill was easier, longer strides & less work. More thrusters, which I took about 4 breaks in between, a final 400m run, then the last 50 pull-ups. I had my workout gloves which helped a lot. No calloused palms. The last 50 were hard. I took numerous breaks just to muster some energy to finish.
