I take back all those words...

Five rounds for time of:

45 pound barbell Overhead walking lunges, 50 feet

21 burpees

Let trailing knee gently kiss the ground on each lunge.

12 days have past since I did my last WOD. Almost 2 weeks. Yikes. I don't like that. This WOD was definitely an interesting one to come back to. I did this couplet in June of 2010.  I remember it very well because I had injured my shoulder doing burpees. Myself, Diso and Zeb were confounded about it. It was when I was doing the push up portion that I felt a jolt of electricity in my left shoulder. 

So today, instead of using a 10# plate overhead, I carried a 25# barbell. The lunges got tough the last 10 meters of every round. It was my legs going dead; I felt really strong with the barbell over head, my shoulders really locked out--- my core felt solid. I giggle reading my comment that my abs were already sore so soon after doing an overhead lunges at 15#s. I'm happy to see improvement in my scaling "up."

The burpees were wretched. I literally burped everytime I threw my body to the ground. I felt sick and nauseous well into round 2. After I called time, I collapsed on my back and felt all my blood rush back into y head. I sat up and felt a terrible headache come on. First thing I thought of was my food intake in the past 2 weeks since getting off my cleanse; I've been eating like shit. Poop, if I hadn't eaten that flakey french toast and tater tots for breakfast.... yea, not even a like of protein in that meal... maybe I wouldn't be feeling like death right now. 

Tomorrow is a new day, new WOD.

  1. Nice job! My hubby did this last night and it looked brutal. I'll probably do it later this week but holding a 25# plate- he held 45# plates. Good workout!
