Wed 7-25-12 The Mile!

I really have nothing to say, but ouch, pain and yes Old lady syndrome is in full effect! It's the MILE!

  1. 2 min Jump rope singles
  2. 1 min Jump rope double unders
  3. high knees (100meters) across the gym and out the door and back
  4. Butt kickers across the gym out the door and back
  5. Bear crawls across out and back
  6. Crab crawls across, out and back 
  7. 10 PVC passthrus
  8. 10 skin the cat left and right
  9. practice lifts for the WOD
  1. 3 @ 60%  (35lbs)
  2. 2 sets of 3 @70% (55lbs)
  3. 3 @ 80% (75lbs)
  1. 1 mile run (I did it in 9 min 40 sec)
  2. 50 Box jumps 24/30 ( I used 20" box)
Total time was 13 min 51 sec

The mile is just a run that you think the whole time about not stopping I don't want to be last please. Don't quit! I literally talk myself into running the whole time. I think I have multiple personalities when I run the mile, because I argue with myself when I am running.
After the WOD I tried to do the 30" box jump almost made it. The second attempt I hit my shins! Damn it! that hurt got some bruises starting. Painful! oh well!


coming October 13th in Miami!!
I cannot wait! I am so going to love this!! run, walk dance your way to the finish while getting painted with colors every 5 minutes. Start out wearing all WHITE and end up leaving looking like a bag of SKITTLES!

Coming also in October on the 21st!!

The Challenge

Per their web site:

What should our racers expect on the day?

• 5k or 10k run on flat & mountain bike trails (with random water canons).
• Monkey bars over a mud pit or even quicksand (we have the recipe).
• Rope climb over a river (or swim across it).
• A .25 mile swim across the lake or forfeit and walk around but have to carry a car tire.
• Rope challenges (cargo nets etc.)
• Logic puzzles / brain teasers.
• Quicksand pit (no seriously we have the recipe).
• Semi submerged tunnel crawl (fear of confined spaces / drowning)
• Ice plunge (basically a pit filled with ice and water).
• Beat the crap out of a punch bag. (timed)
• Finish line is a barbed wire mud pit crawl and a final climb up to a leap of faith into the lake.

Think that’s it?

To get to the finish line there is one final challenge – time to see who is TRULY fearless.
And what is this BIG surprise challenge?
Sorry, but that has to stay a secret until race day as we don’t want to risk people freaking out prior to the race, just trust us, NO-ONE has done anything like this before at one of these events.
It’s honestly going to blow peoples minds.

Something for the kiddies:
We will also have some mini mud runs for the kids.
A 100 / 200 meter mini obstacle course with mud pit for the 4 – 8 year olds
A full mile version for the 9 – 13 year old group. Tons of smaller but still fun obstacles and of course, tons of mud.
