CFWU,WOD

3 rounds for time of:
Run 800 meters
15 Kettlebell swing (only bell I have), 21 reps
75 pound Thruster, 21 reps
21 Pull-ups

time 29:22

My back is a little sore from the sumo high pulls from wednessday. and the 15 pound kettel bell is the only one i have, so i had to scale it back.At 41years old I'm wondering if I have met my limit, I have been doing crossfit for going on 3 weeks and I'm giveing it my all. I guess I'm just tired.

AMRAP, 20 minutes:
7 Pull-ups
7 Box Jumps, 24" box

the first time i did this with a couple of guys who are newer than me and wanted to scale it to 10 min. so we did.

Then Brady who showed crossfit to me was miffed that i did the workout with out him made me feel guilty so i did another 20 mins, so i did this one twice and the power snach once. I think I'm done for the day.

How's your Uncle?

Nik Nichols 07-24-2008 01:19 PM

Re: Nik
 
Well, thanks for all the responses. But He died. i don't know what to say or do really. He died this morning at 11:15 or so. He made the move to denver ok and my dad came home tuesday and it all seemed good. They were asking my dad about my uncles house being wheelchair accesable and such, so it seemed like he was going to recover. Well he coded whatever that means and died. So i did anothe ''fran'' in his honor. 6:00 even after doing 5:40 this morning. That is all, soory.

Thanks, but 165 is nothing to sneeze about, I'm workingout with a couple of guys who are really struggeling with squat form and cant really deadlift safely yet. So 165 is tough enough.
