The story is that this is the workout that Lt. Murphy did almost every day when deployed to Afghanistan. Oh, except he was also wearing a weighted vest. Thankfully, we only have to do this WOD once a year (weighted vest optional). Now, the Crossfit website says to partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed (such as doing 10 rounds of 10, 20, and 30), but our Coach Heather is a big meanie-head and made us finish each exercise before moving on to the next. Strangely, a feel like more of a badass not breaking up the WOD, so maybe Heather knows what she's doing afterall. ;-)
I finished in 55:00 minutes using black and blue bands for the pull-ups. The worst part was definitely the push-ups. All of our WODs this week have been very shoulder heavy and my stamina just wasn't there. Jes kept cheering me on and telling me to do just 5 at a time. After I finished, I did the final lap with Cory and Vanessa. I'm so proud that they didn't stop. #beastmode
Everyone totally rocked it! So much that this was the best we could do for our "goofy" picture.
