Put a Sock On It!
May 10, 2014
I forgot to look at today’s WOD before heading to the box. Teams of 3:
10 rope climbs
8 rope climbs
6 rope climbs
Yeah. Rope climbs shred bare legs, and I workout in shorts. Luckily I teamed up with a dad and his son (currently a Div 1 men’s volleyball player at Ohio State, no pressure), and the dad was a good dad. He’d read the WOD and brought extra socks for people who had not thought ahead.
Rx was 135#, but with shoulder feeling really bad I was glad we went at 95#. At 40 thrusters each we were still hitting the same # of reps as Fran. OK, 5 shy…
I convinced the group to work in sets of 5 which kept us moving fast. Using legs on rope climbs is still a challenge. With my shoulder being jacked I couldn’t go legless. Thank goodness for that sock or the skin on my left leg would be shredded.
Killed it in 11:20 or so. Got nicely chastised by coach that we should have gone heavier.
No thanks. I hate thrusters let alone heavy thrusters.
