Dear Kelly:

It's been a while. Guess what? You are still a bitch and I still hate your guts. Maybe even a little bit more than I did before.


5 Rounds for time of:

400 Meter run
30 Box jumps (Men 24” box, Women 20” box)
30 Wall ball shots (Men 20 lb ball, Women 14 lb ball)

My time: 40:10 Rx

Not the workout I was hoping for today. Not sure what I was hoping for, other than NOT Kelly. I thoroughly hate this workout with every fiber of my being. I surprised everyone (myself included) by just showing up today. I have said countless times how much I hate this WOD and that I wouldn't ever do it again.

But as my husband was sweet-talking me into staying in our nice warm bed this morning, something happened. I recalled a blog I wrote earlier this year about people picking and choosing workouts, and not showing up because they didn't like a certain WOD, and how I didn't do that, or wouldn't do that, or something to that effect. I laid there for about 30 seconds feeling like a huge hypocrite, so I got my butt out of bed and went to face down Kelly.

I didn't set a PR today. I didn't even get close. But I finished the WOD, and I believe this is the first time I've done it with a 14 lb ball. I'm not overly proud of my time today, but I am proud that I pushed myself to (a) get out of bed and make an attempt and (b) finish strong.

Still, I don't care if I ever see this workout again. Wouldn't miss it one little bit if it never showed up again!
