This particular workout was on my Thursday off so I took advantage of the opportunity to sleep in and hit the noon class instead of the 6 am. I enjoy hanging out with a different group of people- each class has it's own personality and it is nice to mix it up. This time I got in early enough that I got to watch one of my friends finish the workout- always dangerous because I got to see how hellish it looked before I even started.
4/26/12 WOD #42:
- Warm up: 800 m run
50 m: high knees
10 pass throughs
- WOD: 3 rounds for time
400 m run
15 OHS (35#)
30 weighted sit ups (25#)
- OT: Max overhead hold 25#: 2:30
For the sit ups you grabbed an appropriate weight plate and held onto it while going through the sit up motion, bonking the weight against the ground both when your hands go back and when you sit back up. And yes, they suck as much as you would think. By the end I was having to do them in sets of 10 to get through them. I was the final finisher in my class, BUT I actually beat the time of two of my friends in other classes that day, so I felt pretty good about that.
I don't always do the overtime, but since it was my day off and peer pressure had everyone doing it, I sucked it up and held another 25# plate over my head. My goal was to not drop first and I accomplished that goal. I actually think I was the 4th or 5th to drop, and it was more because my arms were going numb either from lack of circulation or a grumpy nerve in my shoulder or something.
