Barbara, you left me speechless!
Warmup: 800m run - to which I replied, “No way!” when I first thought it was running outdoor. Oh wait, it is New York and we are 2 blocks away from Times Square, so we’re running indoor :) It is 99 degrees and unbearable in the Big Apple today.
20 push press (Rx is 55 lbs, I did 35 lbs)
5 rds (3-minute rest in between). My time: 5:20 for 1st rd, 5:50 for 2nd, and 7:20 for 3rd, then I did half of the 4th round and hit the time limit (when the next class starts).
When I saw this WOD, I knew I was likely not going to finish all 5 rounds. But, I thought it was the push press that was gonna slow me down, but after the 2nd round, I was really starting to feel the sit-ups getting harder and harder thanks to my non-existent core muscles. The squats also affect me more than I thought they would. My knees were shaking as I was walking up the stairs to my apartment… and did I say it’s 99 degrees outside?
