Suffer on Saturday

Thunderstorms and rain meant cancellation of our Saturday run (10 miles/100 minutes), so I went to Forged Fitness instead for the SOS (suffer on Saturday) workout.
The WOD:
60 double unders (I did 180 singles because I can't do DUs yet)
30 Thrusters (55 lbs, front squat into a push press)
Row 500M
60 situps (or 30 knees to elbows, I did the situps)
30 kettlebell snatches (20 lb kettlebell)
Row 500M
30 slamballs (20 lb ball)
30 overhead lunges with the 20lb slamball
60 double unders (I did 180 singles)
time: 17:18, finished first!!!!
Check out the highlight video of the WOD, the background music is from my Pandora station that I named "Forged Music", it was perfect for the workout:

After the workout, I went home, took a nap for 2 hours and then got really hungry and decided that Saturday was going to be a day to eat whatever I wanted. So we went to the Mellow Mushroom, I had garlic bread, the steak and cheese calzone (could only finish half, those calzones are huge!) and half of a brownie with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream.  The rain had gone way, so there wasn't much excuse to not do a run, so Jim and I did an out and back at Umstead on Old Reedy Creek Rd.  The first five miles were good, averaging 10:30-11:00 min/mile pace but I slowed down after that and finished 10 miles in 2 hours, giving me an average pace of 12:00.  I wasn't feeling my lungs busted but my legs were dead after the WOD this morning, keeping up a 12 min/mile pace was pretty good for how I was feeling!  What a great day.  Now I'm ready to eat the second half of my calzone.
