WOD: KB Circuit
5 Rounds 1 minute work/30 seconds active rest
Hot Potato Upper Cuts
This was a poor showing for Mrs. B. I have been sick this entire week and thought I would just tough it out today and do 16kg for the whole thing, just like last time. Just sweat it out, right? Wrong. After 2 rounds, I had to go down to a 30# KB and that was a struggle. Idiot. I should have just listened to myself and grabbed the 25# KB. Oh well, I finished. Not a good start to the 2010 CrossFit training season.

Max Effort Push Press
Wall Ball Subs
Burpee Box Jumps
The Push Presses went well. I did my last 3 work sets at 105. That was all I could muster that day. The rest of the WOD was horrible. I used a 16kg KB for the Wall Ball Subs. The Wall Walks took me the longest to accomplish being that I can't do them fast or well. After about 5, I start seeing stars so I have to takes breaks. Ugh. The Burpee Box Jumps, though not enjoyable, were way better than Wall Walks. I finished in 22:56. Then I went to celebrate New Year's Eve with some really cool people. If anybody ever asks you if you want want to try the drink Monkey Boy, say yes immediately. Warning: they taste like liquid Jolly Ranchers and can totally wreck your evening if you aren't careful.
