    EWOD distance testing & EWOD

    Mapped out a mile and 100M in the park

    Run 1 mile, rest 4 minutes, run 1 mile

    Nothing beats running on fresh squat legs!!

    1. dtm

      Grace: 5:35 Rx

      Rest 4 minutes

      Grace again @95#: 2:44

      At least I can beat EEC at the ladies weight. PR for Rx but stacking this with an EWOD in the AM was a mistake.

    Handstands: did these on rings, definitely out of practice here, need more playtime
    Grace: 2:40 Rx, paced a nice and easy 5 c&j every 30 seconds, just fast enough to kick BroFarrel off the board. Rear cheeks are roasted.

    Grace Rx (first time!):9:30
    Handstands on parallettes, which i actually liked.
    Sorry to Ed for kicking you in my failed attempt at a wall-free handstand.

    4:12 Rx’d
    – not a PR but quads still pretty tired from the other day. Tried 5 touch and go in the beginning and found out that singles all the way thru are the way to go for me.

    Then did yesterday’s “sally up” back squats
    – got thru about 1:55 Rx’d then took a break for a min and finished the song

    Then 5×10 deadlifts at 95#

    Then Tabata hollow holds

      she kept carrying on- unfazed as we were panting and struggling to put our weights and bars away after the WOD- unbroken and unstoppable!

  5. Liz

    Some headstand on the floor with assistance for balance. Some handstand on paralletes with some wrist pain

    Isabel @52# 2:40

    Drop in at crossfit Santa ynez valley (Santa Barbara area)
    They were finishing up this challenge similar to Whole life challenge:
    and retesting the benchmark workout today
    It was the kind of workout where if you finish the first round in 4 min, add 4 min and go onto next round. There were 3 scaling levels to choose from- I chose the 2nd, with lighter weight and scaled t2b.
    Round 1: 20 box jumps 20″
    15 anchored t2b
    10 power clean and jerk @55
    Round 2: same thing but @70
    Round 3: same @85
    Round 4: @105, clean and jerks are AMRAP until clock hits 16min

    Got through 9th clean and jerk in round 3

    PM: beautiful 50min run exploring the area

  7. J Cash
