Today's post is all about my CrossFit workout because OMG it was intense!
I totally had Jenn in mind as I completed this workout!


150 jump rope (I got to 125 before I got tangled; my longest stretch so far; 150 was a breeze)
3 rounds of 10 burpees/10 deep squats

Already breathless!

21 overhead squats; 21 pull ups
15 overhead squats; 15 pull ups
9 overhead squats; 9 pull ups

I used a 20 kg bar (45 lbs) for the overhead squats and I attempted the pull ups. I'm getting better but still have a LONG way to go. I finished in 6 min 25 sec.

It may not sound like much, but that 20 kg bar sure did start to feel heavy within just the first round.

Our 'Cool Down' - BARBARA (we didn't do the pull ups)
I've read about different versions of Barbara - ours was:

3 rounds of
30 hand release push ups
40 crunches
50 squats

--- Did you see that it's 3 rounds?!

My legs feel like jelly, but my mind is totally satisfied :)


  1. Wow - what an awesome workout!! Good for you!

  2. that sounds intense! amazing work!

  3. I totally admire you. Crossfit is on my fitness goal list. I will get there one day! In the mean time I love reading people's experiences. Thank you for sharing.

  4. I read about your workouts and Jenn's and Norma's and I'm amazed. I'm just happy the mall has a walking program so I won't have to walk in the heat anymore. :)

  5. Okay, that is honestly one of the craziest WOD's I'ever seen!!! Holy crap!!


  6. oh man! YOu are so freaking amazing. That WOD is intense. WAY intense. I'm with Jen. Badass. :)
