Nasty Helen

Last week we did Helen and a version of Nasty Girls and if they weren't bad enough this week we did Nasty Helen which is a mashup of Helen and Nasty Girls:

For Time:
1 Round of Helen
Run 400m
21 KB Swings 24kg / 16kg
12 Pull Ups
1 Round of Nasty Girls
50 Air Squats
7 Muscle Ups
12 Hang Power Clean 60kg / 40kg
1 Round of Helen
1 Round of Nasty Girls
1 Round of Helen.
Honestly, who thinks this stuff up???
My scaling was much the same as last week:
  • KB swings: 12 kg
  • Orange band pull ups
  • 2 ring pull ups:2 ring dips
  • 25 kg hang power clean

I think I finished in a time of 25:42 with most of my time taken up with the ring pull ups and ring dips.  It takes so long to do 7 rounds of 2 pull ups and 2 dips but again I was pretty happy with how I went with these.  In fact, I was fairly pleased with how this workout went as a whole.  I didn't break that often and my swings, cleans and squats were all done unbroken.  I broke my pull ups into 2 sets which I thought wasn't too bad.  I shuffled/ran all my run legs and even though I'm slow it pleases me that I didn't slow to a walk although it does frustrate me that other people walk and they are still faster than me during the run bit.  I finished the WOD saying that I don't understand how something can be so horrible yet so much fun at the same time.

Our warm up was an interesting one.  We had to do bear crawls which I'm finding I'm liking more and more (although I moan about having to do them everytime) and then we had to do broad jumps from a kneeling position.  Now I think I'm above average intelligence but when it comes to stuff like that my brain just can't figure out how to do it.  Maybe it's a case of I don't trust myself to be able to do it.  I could get what Nick was telling me, I had to rock back onto my feet and just jump but for the life of me I just couldn't do it.  I wasn't the only one though and a few of us ended up just doing normal broad jumps.  I really want to figure it out so I can do it next time.
