Great workout!

Some days I come away from CrossFit feeling totally beat down.  But other times I come away feeling like I've really accomplished something great.  Today was a little of both.  This workout was a beat down for me, but I was so elated that I didn't scale anything and I actually finished with what felt like is a decent time for me!  These days where I feel proud of what I did...these are the days that keep me motivated and returning day after day!  Crossfit love!  :)

3 Rounds for time of:

500 Meter row
50 Double unders
5 Deadlifts (Men 315 lbs, Women 205 lbs)

My time:  18:39, Rx

Whew!  This was a tough one.  Breck was saying our rounds should be under 5 minutes, but I know myself too well.  I actually did slightly better than I had anticipated.  I was expecting 7 minute rounds at a minimum, but something clicked a little better with my double unders today and I had several good sets.  And by good sets I mean 15+.  I finished my first round and sat back down on the rower at 5:43.  After that I  lost track of time.  But obviously my second & third round were slower than that.  Anyway, it was a killer workout and I'm glad I didn't scale anything today.  Even though double unders are not my favorite, I liked this workout.

The warm up included a mini-wod:  men 95#, women 65#, shoulder press to fatigue, then push press to fatigue, and the push jerk to fatigue for total reps.

my reps:  6, 3, 4
weak, weak, weak.  I should've easily doubled those numbers but I just didn't have it.
