This was yesterday. From now on, I’m only going to post extraordinary wod’s/experiences of note here, but I’ll post everyday at my progress blog.
They call this wod “Nutts,” not because it is, but after a CrossFitter and soldier, Lieutenant Andrew Richard Nuttall, who died in the line of duty on December 23, 2009.
I didn’t Rx this (doing the workout “as prescribed”); as I’m just into my second month, I’m more concerned with form and making it through and to the next day’s class. So, the handstand pushups were done at an angle on the ladder, the dead-lifts at 175#, the box jumps at 24” high, the pull-ups, with a strap although a lighter one. It took me a few go’s to get through the 50. What really hurt was the wall-balls, for which I used the 16#. Full squat, throw the ball up to a 10’ line catch it and back down into a full-squat: that’s one. 100 were tough. I guess if you think about it, you’re throwing 1600 pounds to a height of 10”. I’m just getting my double-unders (jumping rope), so I did 300 singles and 30 actual double-unders. I did the 400m run with a 25# weight. Time: 30:26.
I’m just happy I made it through, and finishing felt amazing. I’ll post today’s wod to the progress blog.
