Spartan Challenge

Ok, so the benchmark WOD has come and gone, thank GOD! I didn't do as well as I had hoped, I made it through 48 floor wipers before the 20 minute cut-off. This was the first time I had ever done a floor wiper, and the verdict is...they weren't so bad. They weren't fantastic either, but I was worried all for naught. I also felt pretty good once I realized that very few of the women took on the elite weight of 95 pounds, so YAY me! I definitely need to work on speeding up my push-ups and box jumps. I'm still a little surprised I got bogged down in those, but this is CrossFit, there's always surprises.

WOD---Spartan Challenge (20 min. time limit)

25 Pull ups
50 Dead lifts (95#)
50 Push ups
50 Box jumps (20 inch)
50 Floor wipers
50 KB clean to press (12kg)
25 Pull ups

Body comp stats: 142.2 lbs (gasp!), 26.2% body fat (which I still am wondering how this is possible, because I ended the last challenge at 17%, go figure).

7-week Goals: 1-rep snatch @ 75#, wean myself off the soy sauce so as to have the most "Paleo" diet possible, computer off at 7pm (although I seem to have thought it was 7:30pm, my bad) and in bed by 9pm (Sun-Thurs), so I can get 7-8 hours of sleep each night.

    Great job on the Spartan workout! I had a blast watching everyone compete.
