09-22-12 Saturday: Fight Gone Bad

On Saturday, I did Fight Gone Bad as part of a charity event for our gym.  Unlike last year where I think we had less than 50 people doing the WOD, this year it was over 100 people (they invited another Crossfit gym so hence more people!).  I Rx'd it just like last year but it felt like I was out of shape this year.
Do each exercise for 1 minute AMRAP, then rest for 1 minute and repeat for 2 rounds:
Push press 55 lbs
Row for calories
Wall balls 14 lbs, 8 ft high target
Sumo deadlift high pulls 55 lb kettlebell
Box jumps (I did step ups)
Another person counts your reps since the person doing the exercises is so out of their mind, counting would be impossible.  The  # of reps are totaled to get a final score and I got 248, last year I got 224.  So I improved, still wish I had done better but the fact that I didn't backslide is a good thing.  The hardest exercise for me was the sumo deadlift high pulls, it is really hard to do with a kettlebell (as opposed to a barbell)!  And it is not an exercise that I practice/train.  A girl from the Cary gym did my counting, Mary, and she was encouraging but I got to the point where I just couldn't comprehend what anyone was saying! I heard someone yelling at me when I quit doing the sumo deadlifts before the minute was up and I couldn't motivate myself to do more!

After I did my round, I counted for Courtney and realized that I'm not that great at motivating someone! It took me the first round to figure out the right words to use to get her to keep going!  All in all it was pretty good. We raised money for the NC Autism Society, and I raised $850.  Here's to next year when I score 300 and raise over $1000!
