Tuesday 8-27-12 Rope climb & up coming races

I went back today even after the LONG WOD yesterday. I actually enjoyed the team WOD yesterday. Nothing like having a partner. On to the
Warm up:
  1. take a lap
  2. butt kickers
  3. high knees
  4. bear crawls
  5. crab crawls
  6. PVC stretched and practice lifts for the WOD
20 min rope climb. I climbed it and didn't know how to come down LOL. I think I did well cause I made it up the rope.

  1. 15 (p/u)pullups (green band)
  2. 2 front squats (fs) 65lbs
  3. 12  p/u
  4. 4 fs
  5. 8 p/u
  6. 6 fs
  7. 6 p/u
  8. 8 fs
  9. 3 p/u
  10. 10 fs
Done 5 min 45 sec.

So going up the rope was like having SUPER DEATH GRIP. I was so impressed with myself cause the last time I could barely hold on to it.

So I am going to sign up for "THE CHALLENGE" this friday is the deadline for the $25 fee after friday it will be $50. This is what they posted on their FB page today. I will set up a team for this one. If there are any suggestions to a team name let me know.

"So as part of our ongoing quest to create unique never-before-done challenges for your enjoyment, we are now working on the technical logistics for a new obstacle. It is dedicated to all Floridians and we call it "The Hurricane". Can't say much more, but think about crossing a large area with slippery plastic sheeting on the ground, while facing water jets and an airboat engine or two."

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.

I heard there will be axe throwing too! he he

Also on October 21st There will be a team link. Michi is setting it up. Will post as soon as the team name is up.
