Warm Up 10 minutes of 80 lb. sand bag Turkish Get-ups
Three rounds for time:
RUN a 50lb. sand bag out 250 meters sprint back
21 – wall burpees
15 – pull ups
9 – sand bag squat cleans
Rotate the order of burpees, pull ups, and squat cleans each round.
c/d run 2 miles

She says: “Katya is gonna make a man outta me.”

So for the sake of complete transparency, I was not able to do 80 lbs for the Turkish Get-ups.  I did half that and wall burpees are the devil.  I made a sandbag and named it T-Rex but it’s only 50lbs not 80!

The squat cleans were fun though and I couldn’t wait to run to get away from all the throwing weight around!  The two miles was tough though and I was exhausted afterwards.  The Katya promises to make my T-Rex arms a thing of the past!

He says: “Barn Beast doesn’t do crafts.”

So he was forced to use his ruck sack stuffed with 50 lbs of rocks.  Some a bit too sharp for comfort.

Main set:  0.26:49

Had to do all exercises a bit gingerly given my very awkward to handle bag.

Also, first time ever doing wall burpees and squat cleans or whatever.

Not my style but a fun way to workout for a change.

NOTE:  Sneak Peak at Saturday’s WOD =  Peak 53 mile ultra

Might want to join me on a slight taper next two days, because

If you can’t make it to Peak 53, here are the rules:

If your longest run is a 5k…you run 10 miles

If your longest run to date is a 10k, you run 13.1

If longest run to date is a 13.1, you run a 26.2

If you’ve done a marathon, you’re doing 50k

Barn Beast knows you can do it.  We had a Death Race Camper over who’s longest run of season was 4 miles.  Joe D and I took him on a 30 mile trail run before the day’s fun started.

I promise.  You all are your own greatest limiters.  Get over it.  Get hungry.  Do it.
