Almost Didn’t Make It

Like a dumbass I stayed up and watched the CrossFit Invitational until after 3am last night. I woke up wrecked and hopped back in bed at 10:30 to take a nap. Woke up with just enough time to make it to the gym for noon. I was not feeling like doing the workout I programmed.


  • 10:00 EMOM
    • 10 Burpees
  • 5:00 Rest
  • 10:00 EMOM
    • 10 Thrusters (45#)
  • 5:00 Rest
  • 10:00 EMOM
    • 40 Double Unders

I used to be able to hit all 10 rounds of burpees in 20 seconds. Not anymore or at least especially not today. First two rounds I may have gotten it, but then I was at about 22-23 seconds. Thrusters were easy. Got the first 4 sets of dubs unbroken and then I think I missed once in each of the next 4 rounds, another set unbroken and missed once at the end.

Seemed to wake me up.


4 Rounds

  • 10 Hollow Rocks
  • 10 V-ups
  • 10 Tuck-ups
  • 10s Hollow Hold
  • 1:00 Rest

Yep, this beauty again. First 2 sets felt good. I made the 3rd unbroken today, though it got a little ugly. Definitely wasn’t making the 4th though. I broke after 1, 6, and 10 tuck-ups! I’ll get them all unbroken soon.
