The Good News is… There’s Lots of Room for Improvement
Aaah, Saturday: Weight Watchers meeting, the final workout for the week, and then breakfast… I love it!
On tap for today, Spartan Challenge workout #1: 50 pullups + 50 burpees. This workout was one of the WODs at the CrossFit Games qualifier a few weeks ago. Before I tell you my time, check out the way that some of our CrossFit Central coaches killed this thing — keeping in mind that they had to do chest-to-bar pullups:
Here’s Lance doing burpees with Jess looking F-I-N-E on the pullup bars and Carey in the background…
The men’s first place finisher at the qualifier was Dutch Lowy; he finished this WOD in 3:13.
I wholeheartedly agree with my pal Lauren when she says, “Comparison is the killer of joy.” but I couldn’t resist looking at their times next to mine. With the assistance of my trusty rubberband, I finished my 50 burpees and 50 pullups in…
My time: 15:45
- burpees = 5:50
- pullups = 9:55
The only way from here is up!
