Carrots and Jackasses

Well, jackass singular - that would be me. Not that I'm really calling myself an ass, but one of the things I love most about CrossFit is the fact that there is always something bigger, better, badder, harder, higher, faster, tougher to learn or achieve. There are so many elements I have yet to experience or attempt, let alone conquer. The proverbial carrot is always dangling out in front of me saying "come on...come get it". (But, sometimes I actually get the carrot.)

Today's "carrot" was chest-to-bar pull ups. I've never even tried to do one before. But today I tried. While I didn't succeed today, I know with some work I can do it. So for today's WOD I did the best chin-way-over-the-bar kipping pull ups I could do.

As many rounds as possible in 12 minutes of:

2 Clean & jerk (Men 185 lbs, Women 115 lbs)
4 Burpees
8 Chest to bar pull-ups

My Total Rounds: 5 (with the Rx weight on C&J)


  1. Way to go on the RX weight! You are STRONG girl! :)

  2. Woot on the 115# C&Js - kickass!
