Coach Barney tried to play with our minds by writing the WOD on one side of the board only, with our names on the ‘wrong’ side. That didn’t actually mess up our heads as much as his clerical error which led to this:
600 metre run
30 weighted walking lunges 20/16
25 kettlebell thrusters – half with each arm.
20 kettlebell swings
600 metre run
25 weighted walking lunges 16/8
20 kettlebell thrusters – half with each arm.
15 kettlebell swings
400 metre run
20 weighted walking lunges 8/2
15 kettlebell thrusters – half with each arm.
10 kettlebell swings
Once again I was a silver/bronze = pewter mash-up. I have no problem with 600 metre runs so I did those, but I couldn’t get an eight kilo kettlebell thruster on my left side, although I could on my right, so I dropped to a four for the thrusters and an eight for everything else. Time of 17.35 was a little disappointing and I went home wondering if I should have pushed to a 12 for the lunges and swings and kept to the four for the thrusters.
Turns out it was supposed to be 11 reps of each, not 30/25/20 or 15. Just 11 – and I reckon I might just have got that 8k kettlebell up there if I only had to do it 15 times in total!
Bruises – knees from the third round of lunges, only slight though
PB – nope (omigod, I posted this, looked at it, thought, that’s not right – I PB’d! I added 2.5 kilos to my push press x3)
Wishlist – that I wasn’t going to have to add kettlebell thrusters to my never-ending list of things to practice.
