More Sumo's

5 Rounds for time of:

15 Sumo Deadlift High Pulls (Men 95 lbs, Women 65 lbs)
15 Thrusters (Men 95 lbs, Women 65 lbs)

My time: 15:46 Rx

This was a pretty tough workout. 5 rounds is always daunting from a mental standpoint, and somewhere around the beginning of the 3rd round, I momentarily contemplated taking a DNF. Then, of course, my pride and sanity took over and I finished it in a pretty decent amount of time. ( I would have been humiliated if I'd quit during a 15 minute WOD.) I actually expected this WOD to take me 20+ minutes, so I was very pleased with my time. I also know I could get faster on it, so I'll look forward to trying next time.


Strength Component today was split jerk. One of my faves!

  1. Hey chica! I've been lax in my blog reading, so I'm just now catching up on your last 2 weeks.

    Nice split jerks!

    I like the SDHP and thruster WOD -- I need to try that. I totally hear you on the 5 round thing. And then where there are 7 or 10 rounds, I swear it's like your head's gonna explode. :-p
