Fight Gone Bad = Punishment 7-1-08

Fight Gone Bad

3 rounds:

Wall-ball:  27, 19, 12
Sumo Deadlift High-Pull, 75lbs:  26, 16, 12
Box Jump, 20" Box:  30, 17, 14
Push-Press, 75lbs:  20, 14, 14
Row (Calories):  15, 11, 13

For a total of 259

In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute.  The clock does not reset or stop between exercises.  This is a five minute round from which a one minute break is allowed before repeating.  On call of "rotate", the athletes must move to the next station immediately for the best score possible.  One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.

Well I haven't worked out in a week.  Thats the longest stretch of time without working out that I've gone since starting Crossfit at the end of January this year.  Not good.  Just plain lazy.  Now I will say I was sick on Friday.  I was feeling mostly better on Saturday so I attempted a Deadlift workout.  On the 5th rep I had a near spectacular blowout of my sphincter gasket which would have resulted in a slobbering droops (aka diarrhea) dump in my knickers.  Boy would that have been ugly.  I wisely decided to stop my workout there.  I mean meeting pukey is one thing, but having a dance with the Diarrhea Devil in the pale moonlight is a whole nother story.  Count me out.  Which brought me to a full week's time without working out.  Shame on me.  So I decided to punish myself.  How about a lil Fight Gone Bad for punishment?  Me thinks that should suffice.  Especially since this was the first time I've done it as Rx'd.  The last time I did Fight Gone bad was on 4-8-08, I scaled down to 65lbs on the SDHP and the Push-Press, I paced myself to try and stay around 20 or a little higher on each exercise, every round, and I did not keep a continuously running clock.  All of that to say it was much easier then this time and I got a total score of 365.  

This time I did it as Rx'd and let it all hang out.  Which means I blew my wad the first round and the last two rounds were me just quivering in unoxygenated pain with my mind in survival mode.  I'm just glad I didn't meet Pukey, but I was thinking about him numerous times throughout the second and third rounds.  Now I don't know if taking the week off and having just been sick effected my performance today, but I don't think so.  I think Fight Gone Bad is just that ugly of a dark, pain giving mistress.  I have been properly spanked.  Spanked but good.  Hopefully this will be a lesson to myself.  No consistency = Bad CrossFiter.    Bad Crossfiter = Punishment.  Punishment = PAIN.
