2015 CrossFit Games Open Workout 15.5

27-21-15-9

  • Row (calories)
  • Thrusters (95#)

I bumped the damper up to a low 7 instead of just under 5 where I usually row. Started out holding between 1300-1400 cal/hr on the round of 27 and then was around 1150-1200 the other rounds. I went 11-9-7, 9-7-5, 9-6, and 5-4 on the thrusters. Everything I wanted except for that last round when I hoped I’d be able to do 9. I was spent though and had to put the bar down. Quads were on fire! Finished in 9:07. Done!

Good workout, but it was a rough one. I couldn’t get up off the ground for quite a long time and finally had to roll over and push myself up. Then it was over to the fridge for a beverage.

I could tell that my legs weren’t used to squatting, so happy with how it turned out. Will have to see if it’s enough to get me into the top 10% of the world. Now it’s time to rest up this body. Did my back stretches at night while watching March Madness.

I'm searching for the perfect golf swing and my first hole-in-one. I'm addicted to CrossFit. I work for Automattic.
