CFHQ WOD from 5.17.09

I amaze myself sometimes:). I got up an hour early this morning to take my dog running with me for 30 minutes. I usually can NEVER get out of bed early, but I switched up my cell phone alarm rings, so maybe that helped. That and Adam was nice enough to shake me a little when my alarm went off:)!

I want to try to do something exercise-ish in the mornings. Whether it's burpees or running or swimming (maybe) or yoga. Just so I can start my day with activity instead of just dragging along.

I'm not sure if I can do 35 reps of band-assisted pull-ups for this WOD, but I'm going to give it a shot. I might scale it back to 20, though.

5 min. jog

57 Burpees
20 ball sit-ups
10 KB swings, 15#s
10 KTC's

20 Burpees

CFHQ WOD from 5.17.09 (scaled to Pack)
Three rounds for time of:
100 ft Walking lunge, carrying 15 pound dumbbells
16 inch Box Jump, 20 reps
Band-assisted pull-ups, 35 reps

Time: 11:44

BUT I only completed 2 rounds and I scaled them back further than the scaling above. The lunges were ~50ft. each, and I only did 15 band-assisted pull-ups per round. Really disappointed with this, but I just didn't have it in me.

I was completely out of gas after the warm-up. And I had to finish up the last 10 of the burpees post workout.

Pre-workout, I took my other dog for a short walk. :)

Re you being worn out: I have found the hundred-burpee challenge to be a mistake after the first 50 days: it is too repetitive and amounts to "junk miles".

I'm definitely feeling that way lately. I was all psyched about it until I hit around 45-50, now I just dread it b/c I'm SOOO behind. I don't want to feel like a quitter though since the 100-day burpee challenge is a fitness goal. What to do, what to do! :)
