10032018 – CrossFit

This workout ended up being a little more exciting than planned thanks to the weather!

We did a warmup that included jogging, planks, and jumping lunges! It was a mid-70’s afternoon with lots of clouds and humidity. It was Mystery Wednesday which for today meant a longish metcon!

The workout only involved 3 movements:

30 Pullups

800m Run

15 Power Cleans 95#

800m Run

15 Power Cleans

800m Run

30 Pullups

Yea, that’s a lot of running. I did the first set of pullups a lot faster than usual.  I did two sets of 5 which is the longest continual set ever!!! During the first run the clouds looked pretty ominous.  Then 3×5 of the power cleans and back out on the run.  About midway through the run it started sprinkling – no big deal.  15 more cleans and then back out. It was starting to rain more and as the run went the rain got harder and harder.  By the time I got back to the gym, I was soaked! I fortunately had a towel in my bag that I quickly grabbed and tried to dry off my hands (and shared around).  The last set of pullups took a lot longer.  I kept having to dry off my hands and the bar was getting wet too.  I switched spots on the rig a few times to help and there were some puddles under where the last several of us were working.  The last 10 or so pullups were pretty much one at a time!  But I got it done and finished in 23:52.  This would be a fun workout to retest at some point and without the rain!!
