1 pm, WOD from OPT @ CFN – 3 Rounds for time:
- 25 Push Jerks @ 50kg
- 500m Row @ 90%
- 30 Box Jumps @ 75cm
- 5 min rest.
Rounds: 5´06min, 5´50, 5´46
Total working time: 16´42 min
So, Dave was blaming his throat and wanted out, but now it was my time to act the pushing smurf and I think he will be grateful to my persuasion skills tomorrow..
On paper this was something I thought was gonna smoke me hard, but in retrospect it was managable. I dreaded the rowing most but, right or wrong, I never went even close to max here. The 500´s took 1´45min, 1´49 & 1´55. Really hard to string the high Box Jumps together, a little easier from the second round and on, since I decided to drop my lifting shoes and do them in my socks. Very stylish..
For once I am really satisfied with my work. To not even drop a minute between rounds and finish the last one off faster then the second is better than I expected!
Got a call from The King Kebab himself cause he wanted to point out to me that I actually do perform and have a bigger capacity than I give my self credit for. His arguments actually made real sense to me and if I just can use the strength and explosiveness I actually posses, (and stop being such a p#ssy who is afraid of the pain, my note), I do have a the tools to do get some good numbers.
Thanks to you amigo, I actually did feel a lot more confident after our conversation, and that is what friends are for… 😉
