When Castro announced that the third activity of the triplet would be double udders I thought, “Great!” When he announced that the second activity would be wall ball shots I thought, “Okay. I can handle that.” When he announced that muscle ups were going the first activity of the triplet I thought, “Great for me! There’s going to be much bitching by others.” I’ll leave it at that.
I planned on doing workout at 9:30 am but my growling stomach forced me to go home. (Jeff and I had breakfast at IHOP.)
i attended the 11:45 am session and counted reps for James but then didn’t want to bother him to count for me.
I attended the 4 pm session and talked Jeff into judging my performance. He gladly agreed to do so. More about his later. By the way, I don’t enjoy working out in the afternoon.
CrossFit Games Open 15.3 (AMRAP – Reps)
14-Minute AMRAP of:
50 Wall-Ball Shots, 20# & 10′ target
My goal was to complete 2 rounds. This was tough, and quite aerobically challenging. Uhm, I missed my very first muscle up and wall ball attempts. Ha! I was able to complete first round of muscle ups unbroken. I missed the first 3 attempts of first muscle up of second round, but was then able to complete set in reps of 4 and 3 unbroken reps. I did, however, “rest” whilst locked at at top of rep.
Wall ball shots were the most difficult part of the workout, and I completed at the most 10 unbroken reps any set. It was all that I could do to pick up the medicine ball and complete reps. I didn’t, however, complete less than 7 unbroken reps any round, and the first wall ball shot was my only failed attempt. Uhm, that’s the first time I’ve thrown an air ball in ages.
I used my brand spanking new jump rope, although I did have orange-handled jump rope as a back-up. I was able to string together dus quite well today. Yay!
i completed the 100th rep of the second set of double unders with 30 seconds remaining on the clock. Jeff said, “Get in one muscle up.” I chalked my hands, walked to the rings, and watched the clock count down. I had to will myself to place my hands on the rings, as i was convinced that I wouldn’t be able to complete another rep. And then I surprised myself by completing not one but two reps. Again, yay!
My total score was 316 reps.
This isn’t a workout I want to do anytime so. If ever again.
After I had caught my breath I thanked Jeff and said, “Thanks for judging me. I always like when you judge me. He replied, “And I always enjoy judging you.” Yup, he had a twinkle in his eye.
