So as I was internet surfing this morning, you know, instead of actually doing something constructive, I found this awesomeness:
Do I want to do this ? HELLS YES!!!! It is north of B-more in October and I think it would totally rock AND that CrossFit Tyson's Corner should set up a team or something. For real. I mean, not only do you get to run a wicked awesome race, but you get this:
AND FREE BEER! I think I would wear the helmet around all the time. Well, maybe just on weekends, but still. Who's in?
Anyway, we did a great WOD yesterday. It was in honor and remembrance of those soldiers killed at Fort Hood, four of which belonged to the Lumberjack CrossFit affiliate.
Monday, 7 December: A Day the Will Live in Infamy
WOD: Lumberjack 20
20 Deadlifts (275lbs)
20 KB Swings (2 pood)
20 OHS (115lbs)
20 Pull-Ups (Chest to Bar)
20 Box Jumps (24")
20 DB Squat Cleans (45lbs)
This was rough but awesome. However, because it was wet, dark, and slightly icy outside, I decided to Row 500m instead of Run 400m. Did it slow me down? Yes, but I need to get better at Rowing. Anyway, here is the rundown: I used 115lbs for the Deadlift (because I couldn't lift 275 lbs if I tried). Plus 115lbs is heavy enough to be challenging but not so heavy I will hurt myself. I used a 1 pood KB for the Swings and 75lbs for OHS, which I completely crushed, thanks. I love OHS. The Burpees weren't bad because there were only 20 of them. I did Kipping Pull-Ups for all 20. It took me some time because my arms were really tired for some reason. Oh well. I used the 24" box for the Box Jumps. I know I look completely ridiculous doing them on that box because I really have to used my arms to jump up that high. I am only 5'2" and I have short, stumpy legs, so it is challenging. For the DB Squat Cleans I used 25lbs and they were heavy enough. I finished in 40:40. It rocked.
