This past Tuesday, I showed up to my gym D-town Crossfit as usual. If you are not familiar with how it works, I never find out what the WOD (Workout of the day) is until I walk into the gym and see it written on the white board. This is probably a good thing, because if I had known what I was about to go through, I probably would have taken the day off. But I showed up.

Halfway through the warm up, I realized I hadn’t checked the day’s WOD yet. When I turned and saw the details, my heart sank. I quickly looked at my coach and began shaking my head laughing. I knew it was going to be a rough day.

WOD:  “Barbara”

5 Rounds for time

20 Pullups

30 Pushups

40 Situps

50 Air Squats

Rest 3 minutes after each round.

I am still sore two days later. (After 100 pull-ups, 150 push-ups, 200 sit-ups, and 250 squats I have a right to be).

My Total Time: 38:12 … followed by 10 minutes of laying on the gym floor trying to catch my breath…
