Chippy Chips!

For time:

25 Walking lunge steps

20 Pull-ups

50 Box jumps, 20 inch box -16" for me!

20 Double-unders

25 Ring dips -w/ 1" band

20 Knees to elbows

30 Kettlebell swings, 2 pood -1 pood for me!

30 Sit-ups

20 Hang squat cleans, 35 pound dumbells -15#s

25 Back extensions

30 Wall ball shots, 20/14 pound ball -8#s

3 Rope climb ascents -rope lowers for me

Good news: This WOD kicked my ass! More good news: I did the pull-ups fully unassisted!!!!!!!!! Let it be known that on this day September 22, 2010 I officially will be doing all WODs with Pull-ups (except RX'd strict) without a band- woohoo!

More crazytown: I did the KB swings with at 1 pood! I confident that I've been doing all WODs that call for KB swings with a 3/4 pood. I'm blowing my own MIND- mwahahahahahaha!

Observations during the Chipper:

I was glad that the pull ups and box jumps were at the beginning of the Chipper. When I got to the DUs, I was already wrecked. I couldn't jump or turn my wrists fast enough, so I never got into a rhythm; I did the 20 in sets of 2- it was really sad. 
The K2E weren't painful, but I know that I have trouble kipping hard enough to get my knees to touch my elbows when I get tired. 
The KB swings were horrible, at this point is when I'm starting to feel gassed; of course, I did go up in weight. 
I blame the KB swings for wrecking my forearms during the DB cleans. Even though I had a low weight of 15#s, I had the hardest time with the cleans. It felt like it was going in slow motion, I couldn't drop under the weight fast enough... and chipping away (hey!) at the set of 20 felt like FOREVER!!!
During the Wallball, I made the mistake of taking too long of a break and the blood started to rush to my face just like it does when I collapse on the floor after I complete a WOD. I did the last 13 without stopping. 
My left hand still has minor pain when I grab things firmly, but less so than last week (thumb stabilizer is def. helping immobilizing it lending to healing). I felt pain in the hand when doing my rope lowers. It kinda sucks. 

After calling time, I collapsed on the floor, where I stayed for about 15 mins, feeling that amazing euphoric feeling that I chase every time I step into the box :)


  1. Is that Thomas as in OKane? Is that cripple back in action?! I had to help me pee just the other week...

    oh wait.. maybe that was private.

  2. sigh. help HIM pee.

    talk about a jokefail. i'm going to bed.

  3. Oh, Dan why aren't we BFFs yet?

  4. I didn't realize that herniated L4-L5 discs inhibited Thomas from holding his own penis while peeing. Maybe I should "Tonya Harding" his entire back and see what other homoerotic things it makes him do.

  5. HAH! I missed the BFFs comment last night on my phone. oh, but we are ms. assassin. you just don't understand it yet.

  6. What don't I understand? Is Thomas trying to set me up in an arranged marriage with you? Want to let me in on what I'm eventually going to find out...?
