Helen 11-17-08

Helen as Rx'd

3 Rounds for time:

400M Run
21 Kettlebell Swings - 1.5 Pood (53 lbs)
12 Pullups

1st Rd:  2:49
2nd Rd: 6:51
Total:   10:59

I actually meant to do this with my 44lb Kettlebell, so I could get another metcon comparison to the last time I did Helen (also with 44lb KB) in 10:00 minutes.  However I think when I wasn't looking my brother switched it to the 53 lb KB.  I did the first round unbroken.  During the second round, it just felt heavier then it should have.  Did 15 then 6 swings.  When I set down the weight I looked at it and realized it was the 53lber.  No wonder it felt hard, because it was!  This was the first time I've done Helen as Rx'd and I was pretty happy with my time.  All I have to do is take off 59 seconds off my time and I'll qualify for Brand X's underdawg club, and get a T-shirt 

Josh had a great day today.  He did Helen with the 35lb KB in 9:40.  That is a 4:28 PR!  Monstrous improvement!
