Slow, but fun!

For time:

400 Meter run
50 Sit-ups (Fingers interlaced behind the head with feet anchored)
30 Kettlebell swings (Men 55 lbs, Women 35 lbs)
15 Deadlifts (Men 225 lbs, Women 155 lbs)
800 Meter run
15 Deadlifts
30 Kettlebell swings
50 Sit-ups
400 Meter run

I woke up and looked at the posted WOD on my phone and I was so excited about doing this one. I love kettlebells, deadlifts and sit-ups, and lately I have enjoyed running. What's not to love about this WOD?

I should have been able to do this entire thing unbroken. However, it was so broken up it was ridiculous. WTF? Really I just felt weak today, much to my own surprise. A 155 lb deadlift is not heavy and I was breaking those up! Yeah...weak.

One other thing that made it more difficult was the sit-up standard for today. Fingers interlocked behind the head, elbows out at the top, not reaching them in to touch the knees was the rule. This sounds like no big deal, but I promise, it makes a huge difference! I can usually fly through sit-ups and strategically in a WOD like this, they are my saving grace. Not so today!!

Ah well, the bottom line is I got a nice workout and I did it as prescribed, so no complaints. But I'd love another shot at this one some day.

I did manage to set a small PR on Bench Press today!! Yay! My new one-rep max is now 105 lbs!!
