5/9/12 WOD #47:
- Warm up: Run 400 m
50 2ct mountain climbers
- WOD: 5 rds for time
10 box over burpees (20")
20 hollow rocks
10 alternating one-armed push ups
For those counting at home, that comes out to 100 burpees and 100 box jumps. Which explains how close I came to biffing it on the box jumps- Twice! I just caught the edge with my toe as I jumped up and landed on my knees on the box. No injuries, no bruises, but it made me go even more slowly as I continued: gathering myself mentally and physically before each jump. And yes, I was going slowly. Some people were finishing their 5 rounds before I started on round 3. Depressing.
One-armed push ups are tricksy. I was having some serious trouble with them as I kept torquing my knee wrong while trying to position myself correctly. So I modified them to doing them from my knees and suddenly I was doing one-armed push ups, by God! And I have to say, that is a pretty good feeling. ...unlike burpees.
