Encore Présentation

Three Words: O. M. G.


Group Dynamic


I. “Filthy 50″

For time:

50 Box Jumps (24/20)

50 Jumping Pullups

50 Kettlebell Swings (35lb)

50 Walking Lunges

50 Knees-to-Elbows

50 Push Press (45lb)

50 Back Extensions

50 Wall Balls (20/14)

50 Burpees

50 Double-Unders

Completed: all the way thru wall balls at 14lbs. Then as I disappeared into Burpees and detached from my surroundings and forgot where I was and wondered if what I had for lunch would make an encore presentation, the clock ran out. I lost count on the Burpees. And stopped. then regained what was left of my shattered composure, and grabbed my rope and completed 50 unbroken single-unders before exiting the Triple-Wide. That’s gotta count for something. People. People. Anyone? Bueller?

So, am I getting stronger? Weaker? Am I doing this all wrong? I’m not really sure. Perhaps this is part of what the 90DC is about, committing and figuring and recalculating and learning. There’s no doubt I feel stronger. But I was also feeling fairly certain I would be able to complete today’s WOD in the 30 allotted minutes. After-all, I was the one who introduced herself in Dean’s square-circle of trust at the beginning of class, as the one whose fav. CF move is Wall Balls.  Wall Balls? Really? The collective subconscious sigh from the class exhaled. Not so much.

“Whose your favorite NOW?’ Dean could have asked, as I looked back at him cross-eyed, wanting to call out for my Mom, right around Wall Ball rep no. 38.
