I don't know how I managed to go all this time without doing this workout but I did it for the first time at Brand X today.

I was pretty frightend before we started. Have you had those dreams where you are naked in a room full of people laughing? Yeah. I was afraid I'd make an idiot of myself. LOL.

I counted for Andrea for the first run. She rocked it out and got a 278!!!! Wow. She knocked out 108 in the first round and while she did round two I kept telling her to try for a mininum 15 on each exercise. She did it!

Then the moment of truth came and I picked up the bar for Push Press. OH MY GAWD. I pulled off 30 of those suckers. That was a nice start.

Here's the rest:
PP: 30-26-20 45# bar
Row: 10-7-8
WB: 15-15-15 14#
SDHP: 17-15-13
Box Jump: 18-19-16 (Step up / step down, 20" box)

244

I repeat OH MY GAWD. The first rest I stayed standing. In between exercises I had to catch my breath before I started. In the third round when 10 seconds was called before each minute was up Andrea coaxed 5 more reps out of me for every exericise...trying to get me to 15. Exept the last round of SDHP:

10 seconds: 5 MORE LAURA! (she could see I needed more than coaxing, so she yelled at me)

*me does 3 more*

<3 SECONDS: One more, Laura!

Me: NO. *me throws bar down*

SWITCH!

haha.

After the last set of box jumps, assumed the position. OH YEAH.

That was horrible, and awesome, and devastating and wonderful.

Damn, I love this stuff.

I know what you mean Laura. FGB is one of the WODs that I alternatingly love and hate and get all nervous about (each emotion cycling about every 3 seconds).

Nice work on your first one ever!

Thanks, Matt! If any workout embodies CrossFit, this one does.

I yelled F* yeah! when Andrea told me my score. Sorry Mikki and Jeff! I think all the kids were outside. :uhoh:

I think the worst think for me about FGB is that you know EXACTLY how long it's going to take. I mean, you know Fran is always gonna suck, but as we've seen, it's possible to get done in less than two and a half minutes. With FGB, however, you know EXACTLY how long it's gonna take. It doesn't matter how fast you go. Same with workouts like Cindy. FGB is worse though, because...well...come on...it's Fight Gone Bad.
