Tomorrow's WOD is one of the girls...a benchmark....Angie.

I'm not supposed to know this until later tonight (or early tomorrow morning...depending on how you see it). But Pete took pity on me when I went to the Box to make up Tuesday's WOD. He told me to look up Angie before I chose my WOD. And after dropping the barbell on my knee, I listen to my coach!

Pete was right...as always! There was absolutely NO WAY for me to do Tuesday's WOD tonight and then do Angie tomorrow...no matter how much I wanted to do it!

To clue you in,Tuesday's WOD was a compilation of benchmark WODs:

For time:

2 Rounds of “Cindy” (5 pull ups, 10 push ups, 15 squats)


 1 Round of “Helen” (Run 400m, 21 KB swings (55#/35#), 12 Pull ups)


 1 Round of “Kelly” [Run 400m, 30 Wall ball (20#/14#), 30 Box jump (24″/20″)]

2 Rounds of “Cindy” (5 pull ups, 10 push ups, 15 squats)

Looks like fun, doesn't it? Lol!

Now, you see why doing both workouts back-to-back would be challenging! Phew!

Not only were we doing 100 reps each of pull ups, push ups, sit ups and squats...but we have a 20 minute time cap on the WOD! Pull ups are not my strength...far from it. I may blow the entire 20 minutes on the pull ups alone! But, I will show up tomorrow and give it my all!!!

So tonight, I opted for something not so intense...saving my strength and stamina for tomorrow. Instead, I ended up doing:

500m Row


AMRAP in 12 Minutes of:

10 deadlifts 95#
10 double unders

Nothing to strenuous...just something to get the heart pumping.

I ended up completing 10 rounds + 10 deadlifts...for a whopping total of 210 reps (110 deadlifts + 100 DUs).

So, 210 reps in 12 minutes...and I'm supposed to finish 400 reps in 20 minutes...leaving 190 reps to complete in the remaining 8 minutes. Yeah right! Lol!

I'm going to bed. I'm going to need all the rest I can get to get through tomorrow!
