Gettin' Filthy

Today's workout?
The Filthy Fifty

50 reps for time



This workout was tough and some of the exercises I just had to break down into sets of 10 and just attack those 10, next. Attack, next.
the KTE (knee to elbow) is rough-looks easy but it's not. So by 30 I was breaking down into sets of 5
and the burpees at the end? we're talking chest to the floor, jump up at the end burpee.
who's idea was that??? seriously...
I loved every minute of it. My shoulders were burning. My hands hurt. My forearms felt like they were going to pop. My heart was beating hard. (why didn't I wear my HRM for this??).
I stayed strong and thought of my goals. I dug deep and pushed harder when I felt like stopping.
Finished in 29:37

Not bad for my third CrossFit session.

I gotta say, I love wallballs.
Note: the original CF WOD for this workout has jumping pull up (as you will see in the video) but we did regular pull ups and band were available for an assist. Yes, I used an assist!!

Glad I got in a little 6 mile run on the treadmill before heading  into this one...
