What Goes Up Must Come Down
The workout is so simple: 15 thrusters, 15 pull ups, AMRAP. If you get 90 reps (3 rounds) done in 4 minutes you get to do another 4 minutes, if you can't, you stop. Our mission today was to do the 90 reps and if we didn't we had to get on the rower for a 2 km row.
I decided to scale the hell out of it and chose to do 10 kg thrusters (which is the lightest bar) and jumping pull ups. My final score was 86!!! I was 4 fkn reps short!!! I was upset and cranky at myself. I was disappointed because short of going to dumbbells I couldn't scale any further and I still didn't make the grade. So yet again I'm picking myself up and dusting myself off. I think that's the thing with CrossFit ... just when you think you are going alright there's a workout that knocks you on your butt and reminds you that you are nowhere near the fittest you can be but I have just enough mongrel in me to go back tomorrow and the next day and the day after that and the next time this workout comes up I know I'll get the 90 reps out and then some!
