My time: 32:09, Rx
Momentarily contemplated sleeping in, but that thought only lasted about 30 seconds. I can't skip a WOD with such an awesome name. Ha!
Last time we did this, I scaled the pull ups to 50. Today I decided I would do the whole thing, no matter what. I was off my PR by about 3.5 minutes, but I didn't care. I did every single one of those 100 pull-ups with full range of motion, chin way over the bar, and I was proud of my effort. Some days it's fun to just push yourself to do something you don't want to do. Very rewarding feeling.
And I did feel rewarded...until I tried to raise my arms in the shower to shave my armpits. I had to lean against the wall to prop my arm up so I could shave. And shampooing my hair was a major challenge, right along with blow-drying my hair and putting on make-up. I had to use both hands to put on eye-liner today. But I'm building muscle, right?
Strength today was the 5 sets of the complex: 1 SP - 3 PP - 5 PJ
my loads: 45-55-60-65-70
