“The Rice Man”

A birthday workout for Greg, who is 43. These birthday workouts are usually fun. The length of this one is a bit daunting, but aside from the running, I loved it!! Well, and the thrusters...what's not to hate about a thruster, eh? But, still, it was a super fun workout, and I feel really great and energetic today!

As many rounds as possible in 43 minutes of:

200 Meter run
5 Hang power snatches (Men 75 lbs, Women 55 lbs)
5 Overhead squats (Men 75 lbs, Women 55 lbs)
5 Back squats (Men 75 lbs, Women 55 lbs)
5 Thrusters (Men 75 lbs, Women 55 lbs)

My rounds: 11 + 2 back squats , all unbroken

And, I just have to brag on my friend B again. This girl is incredible!! She beat me by one back squat today and she is 5 months pregnant. She's going to give birth to a super-human child who will probably come out doing double-unders and deadlifts, and I doubt she'll even need anything for the pain. Amazing...she's just amazing!


  1. Thank you for the kind words again! And this baby will be super human just because he's HUGE!!! Hopefully I am training him early and he will enjoy exercising. You did awesome today! I'm definitely feeling the pain already.....6 months with this growing belly is starting to kill me on top of these crazy workouts!

  2. I started reading the wod list and thought, "Hey, that sounds like fun." Then I realized it was AMRAP in 43:00. What?!? That's brutal. As for the unbroken part, what are you bionic? Wowzers. Amazing Angie.
