12/17/12 Monday WOD: deadlifts!

I don't have much to post from the weekend, I took the singlespeed out both days and got about 22 miles total of singletrack in, it felt great and I'm feeling better riding the singlespeed and getting used to this new bike.  I have to say again that not running has been great! I have way more energy now and both biking and Crossfit have become more enjoyable and productive.  I was definitely stretching myself thin trying to do all 3 so I might have to change the name of this blog to just bike & WOD. At the same I'm ambivalent, I think I'd like to stick to a little bit of running because the amount of potential energy it takes to go from no running to running regularly is huge and I don't feel like going through that again- I'd rather be in a steady state mode where I can run a 5K if I want to without much training.  The gym helps as I still regularly run 400M intervals there but I might have to inject at least one day of running 1-2 miles to keep up my stamina.

As for today's WOD (really modified for me)
5 handstand pushups (I put my feet on a 20" box and did a modified pushup)
10 pullups (purple band)
10 deadlifts (95 lbs)
10 double unders (30 singles)
7 rounds
My time: 20:00
My back felt pretty good with the 95 lbs but the callouses on my palms started to rip doing all those pullups and deadlifts.  I don't know how anyone could do 70% of the 1 rep max for a deadlift 70 times, it sounds like a lot of trouble for your central nervous system. I on the other hand will be able to go the gym tomorrow by not overdoing it today.
