Fit Test 03.14.2011

HOLY CRAP!?! Has it really been a year since the last fit test?! I guess so!

I will spare you the “I’m so tired” and “I didn’t feel like working out” spiel as you have seen it like 234702348023748 times already… Today’s WOD went like this:

Warm up

  • 30 squat snatches – whatever weight you wanted. I started with the bar then worked my way up to 125#. My squat snatches are getting A LOT better.
  • Stretches, during which time a wasp stung my hand. What!?
  • 100 double unders – took about 2:30. Pretty sure that’s a PR.

WOD – Fit Test

  • 400m time trial
  • 1 minute of push ups
  • 1 minute of sit ups
  • Tabata Squats
  • 1 minute of pull ups

My numbers this time were:

  • 400m run: 1:35, previously 1:42
  • Push ups: 44, previously 40
  • Sit ups: 36, previously 31
  • Tabata squats: 135, previously 104
  • Pull Ups: 20

I ran really hard on the 400, so I’m pretty happy with that. I think I can probably do a lot better on the pull ups and push ups. My sit ups… well, I have made peace with them. They are what they are…

Week Ending Workouts

Friday night (2/19/2010), we did “Running Phat Cindy”. I have done regular Cindy before with a personal record of 17 rounds. “Running Phat Cindy” is also AMARP in 20 minutes, but there’s now a run and the squats are weighted:

  • 400m run
  • 5 pull ups
  • 10 push ups
  • 15 back squats (65lbs)

I Rx’d this one and got five full rounds in. In fact, I completed my last squat as the clock was changing from 0:01 to 0:00. Just under the wire…

I didn’t feel so great on the runs for this one, but felt really good on all the other stuff. I guess I need more work on my running. I think that will be something that I will have to work on forever. The first 2 weren’t bad. After that, I took at least one walk break. Again, I felt like I couldn’t catch my breath.

Saturday (2/20/2010) morning, we took another crack at the “Fit Test” that we did back in November. This workout is:

  • 1 minute of push ups
  • 1 minute of sit ups
  • 400m run
  • Tabata set of squats

My numbers for this were:

  • Push ups: 40 (previously 37)
  • Sit ups: 31 (previously 34)
  • 400m run: 1:42 (previously 1:36ish)
  • Tabata squats: 104 (previously 150ish)

(I need to verify those numbers when I get home. I didn’t have my sheet on me when I wrote this.)

I didn’t do as well on this one as I did last time. The only thing that went up was push ups. I can probably make a few excuses as to why my performance wasn’t where it was last time like “I was tired”, “I was sore”, or “it was raining”. But really, I guess I really just didn’t do as well. Maybe those are legitimate factors, maybe they are not. I don’t know.
