    Looks like the morning classes will be modifying this one, on account of the rain…
    I’ll have a few fun run-subbing options for you to choose from, but you’ll have to show up to find out what they are!

    OMG EVA is my favorite! Old school CrossFit high volume workout! I’m bringing my rain jacket and running rain or shine at 6:30! Maybe I’ll scale to a 400m run though.

    I threw up a little doing this workout.
    3+815 @16kg

    40 sit ups
    20 box jumps

    What a trop-ical day… Get it? Eh?
    Got through 4 rounds in 43:35 rx with the mod for run in the first round (60 lateral KB jumps, 40 lunges, 20 box jumps) and then put the jacket on and did the runs the rest of the rounds.
    Two torn hands ✔️
    Probably late for work ✔️✔️

    Eva – Sub 800m run with 60 Dubs, 40 Lunges, 20 Box Jumps

    Bucky – Beard = More Aerodynamic

    I need to try this again when my hands aren’t all ripped up from T2B. Also when it is less wet outside.

    Sub/scale city this am 😉
    3+ 803 @16kg
    Option B with 1/2 ski jumps and I did, RR.
    Woof! Feeling the deadlift from yesterday.

    37:59 RX
    Strategy, enjoy myself… result: success!
    A little bit of walking up those hills, broke up the swings and pulls into 3 sets after the first round.

    Feels like I’m sweating pure h20, my body has been purified in the CrossFit fire

    Weight-in: 162.6, down a pound… omelette time

      Probably not. I think Ockham’s Razor applies here:

      We don’t do more than 100 pullups very often, and our hands are not well conditioned for it.

      If you want to avoid ripping, spend a lot of time on the bar and rings, and your hands get pretty tough. You can also try mixing up your grip between your palm and the base of your fingers. And using less chalk may help. But rips happen sometimes anyway.

      I used to use a pumice stone/clip off dead skin. I don’t anymore, I think that stuff is overrated. I’m sure someone is selling a $60 CrossFit hand care kit online.

      There are a thousand articles about this issue online. Why??? Imagine if all those bloggers had just linked to a prior article… They could all have done Eva, or learned how to play a new sport, or donated blood!

      I ripped today too by the way. A shallow one on my left palm. Dr. Liz gave me some miracle salve.

    Looks like I’m missing out on all the fun! My application for my masters is due Thursday so I’m on it 24/7. But I’ll be back Friday!

    I didn’t count but continued to finish 100 cals on the rower after the 10 minutes were up and then did two max sets of strict press.
