[quote=Mark Ervi;468652]I am having a heck of time getting over the flu.

I did 2 rounds of 15 squats, 15 sit-ups, 15 push-ups from knees

149 Burpees (10, 10, ., 9). Had to make up yesterday's burpees because I was sick and did nothing yesterday.

4x10 Pull-ups

5x95lb. thrusters
5x95lb. thrusters

15 C&J w/ 95lbs.

2 sets of 10 dumbell sholder press w/20lb. dumbells

I have not done a posted WOD in a week trying to regain some strength to take one on.[/quote]

Boy, Mark. I'd have to say all in all, it's hard to believe with this amount of work that the flu still had ahold of you.......The burpees are enough of a killer..........awesome!

Mark - I am in awe that you have the flu and are still keeping up with those burpees. I hope you recover quickly!!

Stephen - Waiting to hear when you are going to start those burpees!

[B]Today:[/B]

1/2 mile run to gym (the bridge sidewalk was covered in ice so it was more like a glide than a run)

21-15-9
45# thrusters
push-ups (broken but no knees)

Did push-ups instead of pull-ups because I did 100 jumping PUs yesterday and 100 on Tuesday

Didn't check the time at the end because I was lieing on the mat gasping for breath and couldn't see the Globo clock from the floor. Stupid sports watch is only marked on the quarter-hour.

3 rounds
10 split bench jumps
200m sprint

Run/walk through downtown to check out a different Globo. Asked them if they had any CrossFit certified trainers and they all looked at me like I was speaking French. One guy finally said; "Not to my knowlege". I left in a hurry.

1/2 mile glide/run to work

Made email contact with an affilliate that only has evening sessions. That's not good for me but I'm desperate, so we'll see.

CFWUx3 w/assisted pull-ups, no dips, and 76 burpees

Then did today's Jenks WOD modified w/3 rounds for time of:

50 Box jumps (20″ box all rounds)

21 Deadlifts (1st round 185 lbs, rounds 2 &3 w/155 lbs)

30 Pull-ups 1st & 3rd rounds, 2nd round did 30 assisted pull-ups

Time: 47:09
Almost did not work out today. Was still feeling weak, but decided I was being a wimp. I got through the WOD, but should have modified it more.

Diane,

Busy workouts especially so in one day! I love the run/glide description - - snowing here today and we're expecting much more tomorrow (not really sticking yet).

No burpees yet - - my wife and I have been under the weather, so I haven't really worked out for about three days - - it's killing me!!

Good luck on a new globo or an affiliate with decent hours.

Mark,

You rocked it!! Just absolutely AWESOME (especially for feeling weak)! This is one of the most difficult WODs out there - - some of the elite CFers even have trouble getting through it. When I recover from this bug, I'll be doing it, although, it'll probably take me over an hour even scaled it back. I'm afraid to try DLs with too much weight (worried about wrecking my hammies more) and the pull-ups will probably need to be jumping.

So, aren't you glad you did it anyway, tho it probably killed you? Great job!!
