Wow, this WOD sucks.

I am here in Nashville (again), so I decided to drop in at CrossFit Music City. Boy, did they have a nice welcome gift for me…


5 rounds

  • 400m run
  • 30 box jumps (18”, I think)
  • 30 wall balls (20# medicine ball)

My time was 35:45.

The good.

I kept moving. I took breaks here and there, but I kept moving the entire time. Whether I was walking or stepping up, I tried my best to keep moving.

The bad.

I took lots of walk breaks after the first 2 rounds. After finishing 30 wall balls, I could barely catch my breath to start running again.


The WODs with 5 rounds are always mentally challenging for me. When you are exhausted after the first round, the rest of the WOD just seems insurmountable at times. I am proud that I finished this one and didn’t give up in the 2nd round like I really wanted to.

I was completely wiped out after the WOD.

After talking to some of the people there and paying my drop in fee, I sped over to Whole Foods and got a delicious post WOD meal. I should have taken a picture of it because it was beautiful, but it was about 1/2 of a sweet potato along with a plate filled 2/3 with meat (1/2 taco beef and 1/2 taco chicken), and 1/3 sautéed peppers and onions.

Thanks CrossFit Music City! Your people are really nice and I am looking forward to coming back next week.
