Beach WOD!!!

Mike P. and Bill, warming up @ the 5am class.  Our 5am class has grown tremendously!  It’s awesome to wake up to such a dedicated group of athletes.  Your work ethic so early in the morning is truly inspiring!

What’s one of the perks of being right across the street from the beach?  A BEACH WOD IN FEBRUARY!!!  PLEASE DRESS WARMLY, AS THE TEMPERATURE IS SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT 44 DEGREES AT 8:30AM.  Working out in different temperatures, elevations, times of day, etc. are all parts of training in CrossFit.  These varying stimuli help you train for the unknown and unknowable, and help make you a well rounded athlete.

In teams of 2:
Russian Dumbbell Swings (40#/30#)
200m Sprint
Between each set do 10 Push Ups

Teammate #1 will perform 21 swings, while teammate #2 sprints 200m.  Once teammate #2 gets back from the sprint they will perform 21 swings, and teammate #1 will sprint 200m.  Before continuing onto the 18 set pattern, both teammates will perform 10 push ups together.  Then teammate #1 will perform 18 swings, while teammate #2 sprints 200m.  Once teammate #2 gets back from the sprint they will perform 18 swings, and teammate #1 will sprint 200m.  Again, both teammates will perform 10 push ups together.  Continue this pattern to 3 ending with 10 push ups.

    Sorry I missed this!!! I love Beach WODS…. Went and ran a 5k trail run today…. hills, and mud, and foot bridges, and a lot of ducking and dodging… Have to get ready for the hills of Fredericksburg if I’m gonna complete the Historic Half in May.

    Whoa!! Definitely put a strain (good kind) on the upper legs. Had to break up all of the BSs.

    Did yesterday’s WOD this morning in the hotel gym. Technically difficult in a health club using a treadmill, but finished in 32:39 amongst lots of crazy stares. Now off to Animal Kingdom! Oh, and I wimped out, 15 # weights. Could have done more but I was scared. :)

    Time: 8:58
    1K row

    Took off too hard in the row – legs dead by the time I got off the rower.
