How?

I did not sleep well and feel weak and tired as fuck this morning. In at 10:30.

Warm-up – 2 Rounds

  • 5 Strict Pull-ups
  • 5 Strict Chin-ups
  • 20 Push-ups
  • 15 Air Squats
  • 40 DU

E2M 20:00 (alt)

  • 15 cal Row
  • 15 Burpees

Whoa, regular burpees for once! Was taking about 40 seconds to row and 45 for the burpees.

12:00 Time Cap

  • 150 Wall Balls (20#, 10′)
  • Max Muscle-ups

I did 3 sets of 25 and the clock was just over 3:00 when I peeked. Then I did 3 sets of 15 and finally 3 sets of 10. Until the final 2 sets I was resting with the ball between my chest and the wall so I didn’t have to do extra work picking it up. I tried to count so my rests were less than 10 seconds. Finished at 7:06. Somehow my PR was 6:14 from 4 years ago in the Open. That was actually the last time I’ve done “Karen” too. I tend to avoid it because it’s so boring and I can barely walk for 3 days after. I’m beginning to think my judge miscounted my reps in that PR because my notes said I only did 2 sets of 25 and then 20s, 15s, and 10s. I was 30-40 pounds lighter back then, so maybe that’s it. I don’t know.

I collapsed to the floor for some breaths and eventually made my way over to the rings. I don’t think I touched them until after 8:00 on the clock. I did 2-2-2-2-1-1-3 for 13 total reps.

According to BTWB this makes 100 muscle-ups on the rings in 2017 already, compared to only 86 in all of 2016.

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