Some days this is how I feel:
Saturday was one of those days.

WOD: Fight Gone Bad, 5 Rounds for the Championship Belt:
1 minute of each exercise, 1 minute rest between rounds
My goal was to accomplish at least 10 reps of each exercise in each round. Not hard at first, but much harder in the hero rounds. I managed to reach that goal. I used a 12# ball for Wall Balls, 65# for both the SDLHP and Push Presses, the 24 in box for the Jumps (and I managed not to slam my shin into the corner of it this time). I also wanted to row between 2:10 and 2:15/500m for the rowing. I managed to do that as well, sometimes even being below (or above?) 2:10. Apparently due to my awesomeness, the Russian Judge awarded me the Championship Belt, previous held by the one and only Marcus. Sorry Marcus.

WOD: AMRAP in 30 Minutes of:
20 KB Snatches (10/l0R) 5 Burpees
20 KB Clean and Press (10L/10R) 10 Push-Ups
20 KB Swings 15 Squats
Poor Jason. Everyone and their brother showed up to the 5:00 class and there weren't enough weights to do what he originally wanted, so he modified it to make it as equally challenging/terrible. I used a 30# KB for this and it was rough. I ended up having to do Push Presses when it came time for me to do Clean and Press. I could do a few straight presses, but then my shoulder got tired, even after I broke them down into sets of 5. That is ok, though. I finished with the 30# KB. It is nice to be feeling back to as normal I can be. The "active rest" of Burpees, Push-Ups, and Squats were miserable because I have done more than my fair share of Push-Ups this week. Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right?

Chop Til You Drop
20 Box Jumps 10 Sledge Hammer Swings
10 Ring Dips 10 Tire Push-Ups
1 Net Climb 10 Tire Jumps
I love this WOD mostly because I like using a sledge hammer for just about anything. Anyway, the Deadlifts went alright and I did 185# for my 5 rep ME. Dave was nice enough to stay and be my partner for the 6:00 class, even though he had already done the 5:00 class. I did not do so well on the Chop Til You Drop. I was incredibly tired, but I pushed through anyway, you know, for the Sledge Hammers. If you are ever my partner in this WOD, my rule is that even if you finish your part before I am done with my sledge hammer swings, you are going to have to wait until I finish them. Comprende?
