Oooh, I knew this was gonna suck the moment I read it.

I'm embarrassed to report that this took me just over 50 minutes to complete four rounds.

Running was on a treadmill, 2% grade, 9:13 pace (6.5 miles / hour). Theoretically, that's only 37 minutes of running . . . maybe 38 or so if you count the time that it takes the treadmill to get up to speed.

"Box jumps" were done to the second step of a normal stairwell . . . probably 18". (The staff here get incredibly prissy if I jump on and off one of their precious flat benches.)

So, how the heck did it take me 12 minutes total to do 4 rounds of box jumps?

Nice workout, Coach. Now, about this blister on my foot . . .
:wink:

Stiff and sore all over (before this morning's workout).
Ran 1/4 mile (at 5 mph, incline of 1.0), 20 box jumps, X4. ~25 minutes.
Taking 2 days off if I'm not recovered tomorrow.
I HATE not doing the full workout.:angry:

Janet- A friend of mine who makes her living training people....where you work...told me her main concern about crossfit was that people would be frustrated by not doing "the prescribed workout". I scoffed at this...saying people would realize that these workouts are disigned such that NO ONE can do them ALL in exactly the prescribed manner....I was obviously very niave!!!

I have been blown from previous workouts and when the prescribed WOD was say snatches I end up using an empty bar...working technique...getting my core temp up and moving blood/nutrients around. I had no #'s worth a damn to post but my recovery was improved, my technique made a step forward and.....I had fun doing it.

:-) Yeah, I realize no-one (or only long-time-Crosfitters) can do all the WODs exactly as prescribed. The frustration is a cool driving mechanism, though only if you let it make you burn with determination (as I bet y'all do. It's a new sensation for me).:proud:

Still getting back in the Crossfit groove. All the miles were just under 7min. Total time 35:56. Those box jumps are tough once fatigue sets in!

Pretty impressive Don! It took me 50 minutes and 30 seconds to complete. I do hate running on a treadmill, but I live in upstate NY so I have no choice
