I attended the 6am session at CrossFit Nittany, led by Jennifer. It was a full house this morning, with about 20 people attending.
The warmup consisted of 2 rounds of:
30 sledgehammer hits on tire
20 box jumps
10 bridge ups
I didn’t particularly like the warmup, mainly because there were only 2 sledgehammers; so much time was spent waiting for your turn. Bridge ups hurts my wrists. Enough whining already, Paul!
Yesterday I asked Bryan if a Hero WOD was scheduled for today, and he mentioned that we would be doing “1776.” He said, “It starts with a mile run.” I replied, “You had me at ‘mile run’.”
Run 1 mile
7 rounds of 7 clean & jerks (155) and burpee barbell jumps
This was a very challenging workout, as I did clean & jerks just this past Monday and because I can’t recall every doing 49 (or more) clean & jerks in a day – let alone a workout.
I used the women’s prescribed weight of 105#. And I’m fine with that.
, like all but 2 or 3, chose to run 2, 800m intervals instead of the 1-mile loop. The 800m interval at CFN is tough, as there is a about a 300m decline and then 300m incline.
I had 7 poker chips (not as nice as those at CFZ) to help me keep track of rounds, but I’m pretty certain that I nonetheless lost track of rounds and completed 8 rounds. Perhaps I should rename WOD “1876”.
Uhm, the burpee barbell jumps were a welcome relief from clean & jerks.
I completed the WOD in 20:47.
Thanks for your hospitality, CFN! I’ll be sure to visit the next time I’m in the area.
