Yes, I would have been okay with doing two WODs -- provided I didn't have to murder my legs again.
But of course, we got Kelly today. Figures.
Details after the jump...
Kelly looks like this:
5 rounds for time:
- 400-meter run
- 30 plyo box jumps (24")
- 30 wallball shots (20-pound ball, 10' target)
"Look at Jay -- he's smiling!" Tim pointed out. But Jay's a happy, optimistic, up-with-people kind of guy. I'm a grumpy whiner. Big difference.
But as the workout began, I actually felt pretty good. I tried to pace myself, hanging back a bit during the first 400 meters, and keeping a consistent rhythm with the box jumps. The first round of wallballs wasn't too bad, either -- I didn't even notice that I was shooting the ball well above the ten-foot target unnecessarily until I was halfway through the set of 30.
As the second round began, however, my legs started wobbling. I didn't run -- I shuffled. And while I managed to get through the box jumps fairly quickly, the wallballs were nothing short of painful. I ended up having to break 'em up into sets of five.
The final three rounds were more of the same -- only slower.
Result: 31:11 as RXed. My goal was to keep up with the Recon Marine's blistering pace, but in the end, he more than beat me: He lapped me.
Even more impressive? XFitMama -- now almost eight months pregnant -- finished Kelly just a couple of minutes after me. Can you say hardcore?
