WODs So Far This Week

Monday 2/21/2011

Again, this will be short. I haven’t been sleeping well, have some stuff to do, and need to get these down for future searching.

20 minute AMRAP (“Yak”)

  • 15 back squats @ 95#
  • 8 step ups (4 each leg) with 95# barbell
  • 10 burpees

I got 5 rounds plus 4 step ups. The step ups with a 95# bar on my back were somewhat scary and really just sucked the life and motivation out of me.

5x 500m Time Trial – Each time must be within 10s of the last run. If not, penalty is a 1 minute hand stand hold.

Times were: 1:50, 1:48.6, 1:51.3, 1:52.8, 1:50.9

I think I gamed this one a little too much out of fear of getting a penalty, like I am 5 and getting a demerit. Instead, I focused on keeping a consistent pace on the rower, which, by my times, looks like I accomplished.

  • 400m run
  • 50 double unders
  • 25 sumo deadlift high pulls

Time: 19:46

The last run may have been a power walk. My mental goal for this one was to do it in under 20 minutes. It was starting to look bleak after minute 16, but somehow, I got it done. My double unders are coming along quite a bit. Now, it’s just a question of having the lungs to keep going. Most of the times I stopped it was because I couldn’t breathe anymore. I was just gassed. The SDHPs were really tough. I had to constantly remember to pop the hips.
