That's a wicked Grace time - congrats!!

Jodi and I tried the chinup challenge - 298. Jodi kept us in the game - I have a wicked flu and have slept 26 hours in the past two days. We might try again when I'm feeling better.

Anthony, that's nuts...298?! Please tell me you got that on video. Christa and I are definitely going to have to make another run at it. I really want to crack 300. I don't know how many more attempts my hands can take, though.

3 x WU:

10 45# OHS
10 hip and back extensions
10 kipping pullups
10 GHD situps
10 parrallete HSPU's

"Filthy FiftY"

50 box jumps, 24"
50 jumping pullups
50 kettlebell swings, 16kg
50 walking lunges
50 knees to elbows
50 push press, 45#
50 back extensions
50 wallballs, 20# ball to 10' target
50 burpees
50 double unders

25:45

I don't think this is a PR for me, but I can't seem to find any of my previous times recorded anywhere. Anything that involved shoulders was killing me today, after the bonus work I've been doing the last few days. The box jumps felt exceptionally laborious as well, probably from the running yesterday. On the bright side, I have two games on "rest day" tomorrow, which means I don't have to do another workout today. WOOHOO!!

Sorry, no video, but there were several witnesses. :p

Our goal was 320, but I lost pace on the 7th minute and crashed hard. Luckily Jodi kept pace and finished with 162. Took me about 30 minutes to recover with a lot of dry heaving. I'll be happy when I shake this flu. :(

Nice, what was your strategy for the pace? Were you trading sets of 8, or something along those lines?

Re: I've got a Monster in my Pocket!!!
 
Yeah, that's how we started out. 8-8-8-8, break until the minute was up. But when we lost pace (went over the minute to get 32), we just went back and forth non stop at whatever reps we could manage.

3 x WU:

10 45# OHS
10 hip and back extensions
10 deadhang pullups
10 GHD situps
10 ring dips

"Isabel"

30 snatches for time, 135#

2:01!!

Okay, so after my "Grace" the other day, I thought I might be able to something special with this one. I'd never actually done "Isabel" before, so I was thinking, "sub 3 is good, right?" WOW!! You know those days where you finish the WOD and your like, "I can't believe I just did that!" Today just shot right to the top of that list.

virtual shoveling, 45#

I should have been able to get this done faster, but I think it caught me a little off gaurd.

Sprint work:

Run a 40 yard sprint every 30 seconds for 10 minutes.

Yesterday.

3 x WU:

10 45#OHS
10 hip and back extensions
10 kipping pullups
10 GHD situps
10 ring dips

"Nicole"

20 min AMRAP
400m run
max effort pullups

27-20-18-12-33

Not happy this score. I finished the last run with 4 min left and decided to let the clock run down to under 1:30 to max out my pullups. I think in the future I'll focus more on the rounds than the pullups.

3 x WU:

25 double unders
20 45# OHS
15 hip and back extensions
10 chinups w/ leg raise
5 parrallete HSPU's

30 muscle ups for time

6:32

Muscle ups are still a weekness of mine, but I managed to shave 3 minutes off of my last time. After the WOD, I did some extra work. 3 sets of medicine ball plyo pushups, 15 each arm, situps and a cool kettlebell situp that Ryan showed me. It's also been brought to my attention that when I did "Nicole" the other day, I did it wrong. I ran first instead of doing pullups first, which just gives me a good excuse to do it again and improve mt score.
