Even Split

I love that WordPress is celebrating marriage equality!

I worked out at 8:30 this morning. Jeff joined me and Coach Nick led the session. ‘Twas much fun!

Metcon (AMRAP – Reps)

EMOTM for 10 minutes
Work 15 seconds; rest 45 seconds
Max reps TNG power cleans @ 65% of 3RM

I completed lifts @ 100#. I had just completed the first round of 6 reps when Luke ran out of the box, as my landlord was exercising her dog off leash and Luke wanted to join them. Bad dog! And good dog! I missed the second round. Dammit.

I finished the second round, once again completing 6 reps, and thought, “Why am I going so slowly?” Angelina was to my immediate right and I decided I’d match her rep for rep. We did just that for most rounds, although near the end I sometimes completed one more rep. I completed 8 reps for all rounds, including extra round that Coach Nick allowed. (Thanks, Coach Nick!) I was surprised and delighted when the 8:30 athletes applauded for me when I finished last solo round. My final score was 76. My final score was also more than Thom’s.

Metcon (AMRAP – Rounds and Reps)

20-min AMRAP
– 5 plate presses (45)
– 5 plate burpees
– 5 box jumps (33)

Complete 15 double unders at the top of even-numbered minutes (beginning with minute 0)
Double unders are not included in scoring

Jeff and I set up our workstations side by side, and we were neck and neck for the first 60 seconds or so. I’m a difficult person to keep up with. I completed most rounds of double unders in unbroken reps, although I positioned myself incorrectly one round and the rope kept getting caught on a floor mat. I completed all rounds of reps unbroken got all other activities except for times when I had to pause for double unders. Plate presses began to feel heavy toward the end of the workout, and the box jumps became more difficult. I didn’t miss a single jump. Yay! Plate burpees were the easiest part of the workout. I had begun my eighth round from when Coach Nick informed us that we had 10 minutes remaining. Although I don’t know if I had a perfect split, I do know that I completed 14 rounds + 6 reps. That’s 75 plates presses, 71 plate burpees, 70 box jumps, and 150 double unders. And a hell of a lot of fun! And a hell of a lot more rounds and reps than Thom.
