Well here we are at the end of another week.  I made it to the gym four days this week. I just needed a break on Wednesday, so I slept in.  Normally I'll do a home WOD when I do this, but this week I just rested.  Those flannel sheets are amazing when it's 15° outside! 

In anticipation of a few more "sleep in" days this winter, I have decided I need a kettlebell and some heavier dumbbells.  Got to looking around on the web, and found they are not cheap.  Mainly because of shipping costs.  Holy crap - some of these places kill you on shipping. 

But I found a work-around: 

Now, normally I avoid Wal-Mart like the plague.  I haven't physically been inside a Wal-Mart store since 2007.  I refuse.  My mental health is worth far more than any savings they can offer.  But online, they offer free shipping for orders over $50.  I ended up getting a 35lb Kettlebell and two 25 lb dumbbells, for roughly $85.  NO SHIPPING!! 

So, next snow day or sleep-in day, I'm equipped. 

Today's WOD was fun! 

As many reps as possible in 7 minutes of:
Rope climbs
rest 3 minutes
As many reps as possible in 7 minutes of:
GHD sit-ups

As many reps as possible in 7 minutes of:
Double unders

Athletes choice of order

I did:
Double Unders = 171
GHD Sit Ups = 75
10′ Rope Climbs = 11
Hand Stand Holds = 30, 30, 30, 30, 25, 20, 16 (seconds)

Our Strength was after the last 3 minute rest on the WOD:

5 min AMRAP Squat Clean & Jerk @ 105# = 11 reps
