After yesterday’s LaborDay WOD we are sore going into this mornings event. Took a little longer to warm up, and with more groans, grunts, and laughing than usual.
Today seems a bit off on the exercises, but using the tools at hand this WOD got interesting pretty fast! Breathing heavy right from the start I noticed the dew on the grass wasn’t just dew. It was drenching water masquerading as dew.
If you can picture it glossy, reflective blades of grass in a humid morning. As you begin to walk in it the water begins to splash all over you!
We had yet to start and I was soaked from my knees down! So, what did we have to do as the first exercise? Freaking Burpees! Now my dry upper body is totally drenched not so much by sweat but by the water in the grass. Drenched! And not even five reps in! 😂
Oh, boy! The looks Selene gave me when she read out loud the first exercise! I was almost in tears. She beat me to 50 like nothing. As if I was standing still. To be honest I did stand still trying to keep the blackness from encroaching my being. Did I mention yesterday’s workout?
So, we ran a little and I tried my best not to laugh out loud otherwise I’d not be writing right now. Have you ever not hit your head with a sandbag(sb) while performing the shoulder to shoulder exercise? Who doesn’t look funny doing it? I wear my hat on purpose for things like that, but I just checked it and I may have gotten knocked around a few times by the sb. But, watching her do it made it a little more entertaining. Sshhhh, don’t tell her I wrote that. Hahahahahahaha!
Have any of you performed inch worms on a very wet natural grass field for 50m after getting your body smacked around a few times? Try it! Lots of fun! That’s how we finished our workout today!
I am very honored, and Blessed to have such a great workout partner as my fiancé! She has a no slack attitude with a bit of a competitive drive (she will deny it).
