I completed my first “Angie” WOD! (Well, almost. It was mostly as Rx’d.)
I don’t know why but I was SO so so nervous the entire morning before the WOD. I found this a little weird because, well, I CrossFit with just Ryan, not in a group and not in an affiliate box. I guess I was just anxious because I knew this would be a benchmark workout and I didn’t want to fail myself.
I was SCARED. Scared because I KNEW, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that at some point during that workout I would want to QUIT. I knew it was going to hurt, I was going to burn, my muscles would want to give out, I would want to quit. I knew I would have to dig deep and confront myself… my weak self. And the thought of that was kind of… scary.
It’s weird how CrossFit will bring out the competitor in you. I’m constantly afraid (maybe “afraid” isn’t quite the right word) of letting of MYSELF down.
Anyway, the “Angie” WOD is:
For time! Aaah!
As expected, pullups took me the longest. I did 60 unassisted pullups (a combo of kip and strict) and 40 band assisted total. Everything else was as Rx’d.
14:47 min for Pullups
10:22 min for Pushups
3:58 min for Situps
4:08 min for Squats
33:09 min total for “Angie”
Oh, and this is totally unrelated to CrossFit but my picture above reminded me of the Stop CMV Awareness movement. If you’re a woman, whether you CrossFit or not, it’s good to at least be aware of Cytomegalovirus!
