So, today is the first round of the Crossfit Open - the annual worldwide competition to rui knees and crush souls.
The exercise for round one is 25 feet of walking lunges with a barbell held overhead, 95lb for men, 65lb for women, followed by 8 jumping-over-the-bar burpees, followed by another 25 ft overhead lunges, followed by 8 chest-to-bar pullups. As many reps as possible in 20 minutes.
Happily I took all the skin of the inside of my thumbs yesterday on the bar and my knees are creaking hatred from Wednesday still, so am particularly looking forward to this, but hey, have industrial quantities of KT tape (Pink!) and ibuprofen, and weapons -grade coffee, so ready to embrace the suck.
Not sure if this is going to improve tomorrow's long run though.
