Crazy 8's and pimping my ride :-)

This morning at CrossFit we did a little bit of insanity called "crazy 8's".  Eight rounds of: 8 pullups, 8 pushups, 8 dead lifts (95#), 8 knees-to-elbows (a.k.a. KTE), 8 front squats (95#), 8 push press (95#) and 8 kettle bell swings (55#).   Not sure if that sounds like a lot of work to most people but rest assured, it is a workout that reminds me of the IRS... it takes every bit of whatever you have then ask you for more!

The entire workout I felt mildly nauseous.  Not fun...

And I felt spent just about all day.  That WOD really kicked my butt.

Thank goodness for that accountability thing I was talking about the other day, because skipping my row this evening would have been pretty easy to rationalize had my friends not been waiting for me at the gym for a little CrossFit Endurance workout on the ergs.  We did 10x125m, full effort with 1:00 rest between  intervals.  Surprisingly I did pretty well - managing to beat my time from back in December on the same workout by about a full second per interval.

As for "pimping my ride"... well, I decided I needed to personalize my Concept2 rower. :-)

 Got the custom decals from SignSpecialist.  I'm really happy with the work they did!  If you want some custom decal work, I recommend them.
