Five rounds for time of:
Run 800 meters
2 pood Kettlebell swing, 30 reps
Post time to comments.
4 rounds w/20kg KB + 800 m run
(45 minute cut-off)
44:38 as rx’d
PR by almost 9 minutes. Definitely one of my least favorite workouts.
Broke the pullup bar on number 22 of the 5th round, which was a nice surprise.
Thanks to Garth and Josh for help on my kb swing.
40:14 Scaled 24kg KBS
Josh is prolly right and I should start using the 2 pood when RX’d.
I think I have a mental block against the 2 pooder I need to get through. Maybe calling it a pooder is a good start.
Thanks Garth for the KBS critique.
Great job Katy and Hercules!!
30 pull-ups and 2 KB swings left at 45 min mark. Finished out the workout after that, but at a leisurely pace. 49:38. Fought off puking for about an hour afterwards.
4 complete rounds w/ 24kg KB + 800 m run & 30KB swings by 45 minute cutoff. Then Robert, who had been pushing me the whole way, decided he would finish the 30 pull ups we had left. So we finished our 30 pull ups for 5 complete rounds, in 50:38. (Damn peer-pressure!) Tough workout!
Oops, meant to say Daniel, not Robert. And I see it was 49:38,, not 50:38. It appears I damaged my brain also…
46:38 as rx’d
This was a tough one. Everyone at the lunch class really helped pushed me through this one.
Oh, and BTW thanks to Garth and Josh for their coaching. Really helped. Now if you’ll excuse me…zzzzz.
as Rx’d, 45 min cut off
3 rds +800m run + 30 KBS + 3 PU
Approx. 45-46 min. on Redstone Arsenal Track and Pull-up bars. However, only completed 3 rds of 800m, 30 KBs (used a 35 lb KB- not sure how many poods that is) , and pullups. Lost a great deal of time trying to finish the pull-ups.
1 pood is about 36 pounds
The 2 pood is 72 lbs. It’s horrible.
Kinda glad I had to work today, I absolutely hate this WOD.
4 rounds + ~500m at 45min. Should have finished even with time expired, being so close to the end! Next time, I’ll just have to finish before the 45 minute cutoff.
Slade and Robert, way to go!! Awesome job finishing at the lunchtime class!
Kudos to all who finished! Eva’s just not nice.
43:37 as Rx’d
Still having trouble transitioning from KB swings to pull-ups, my hips don’t want to move both ways for some reason.
Great job to Kevin!! That was an impressive performance to say the least.
EVA as Rx’d
Good job on this one Slade. Way to push yourself!
3 rounds + 800m run + 30 kbs + 22 p.u. As rx’d. I accidentally wrote 4 rnds on the whiteboard but I realized afterwards I wrote it wrong. Really tough one. Good job amy! That ‘tag team’ on the pullup bar on the 3rd round really pushed me.
34:13 PR (previous 37:00 but with unbroken KBS)
-Could not link all KBS this time, lower back was cooked and this time did CF games “standard’ish” on KBS (ear showing) – I was most pleased that the running actually felt “comfortable” which is HUGE for me. I am slowly making peace with running.
Scaled with jpu’s but as rx’d with kbs. Four rounds even at the 45:00 min. cut-off. Ouch.
Eva is a Bee-a-ch!!! I got 3 rounds + 30kbs + 7 pu”s. kb was scaled to 16kg… my arms kept bending with 20kg.
She is a tough one!
Watching Lesha and Mandee M. do rx’d pood was crazy. Great work!!!
