CrossFit Old Town: "Dude, I'm gonna tear my hands the F up."

So, you know, I have to hand it to myself. It seems that I have this knack for spitting out great little quotes while I'm at CF. Sadly no one heard my great little one liner yesterday, which was completely unintentional mind you, when I said, "My snatches are getting sloppy." I was on the 8's on the way down, and they totally were but later when I thought about what I said, I had to giggle to myself. Then this morning, Jerry got me with the blog title after I just looked at the workout and spat out, "Dude, I'm gonna tear my hands the F up." I didn't actually use the word. No no, I just said F. Yes, it's true, I'm a complete retard. :P

But anyhoo, I've managed to pull the lucky "double" card at work today... yay for being in a restaurant for the better part of 10 hours... that's not really a yay... there's a lot of sarcasm there so I hope you picked up on that. So anyway, I best get this blog moving. Today's fun looked like this...

3-5 rounds
5 burpees
10 OHS (pvc)
15 Abmat sit-ups

For time
KB swings (45, 50, 52)
Box jumps


Now do you understand why I said I was going to tear my hands? The shave job I gave myself was a bad idea. My calluses are too low now and my hands are, well not baby soft, but they're smooth(er). They are tearing in the palms again, and those hurt and don't heal nearly as quickly. There were lots of rips today, and not little ones either. Big bloody ones. Poor big brother Gar had three, and they were deep too. Those are gonna take a hot minute to heal. Ouch. Steven had a deep one too. They both finished the workout though. Steven in a bloody surgical glove, Gar taped all to heck. It was quite a sight. Let me just say, after yesterday's chaos on the menu, this was brutal. I was a lot more sore than I thought I was. I felt like lead weight the whole time. And it didn't help that Jerry switched my KB on one of the higher rounds. Made me do the 50. Then I went back to the 45, and then the 52 was the only thing available. Wicked. If you have a half hour or so to spare, give this a go. It has my official sweat guarantee on it! :P Gotta go to the shower now or I'll be late like a bad little lemming.....

You have more than one? Damn!

I don't bother with my calluses. They seem to protect my hands, so I let them be.

This sounds like a fun workout! I can't wait to get back in the swing of things!

Have fun at work!

Sarcasm right back at ya :)

Nice one-liner. I might try this workout at home on an 'off' day with a much lighter KB. The pull-ups, dips, and deadlifts I did yesterday toned up my calluses nicely. No need to shave them yet.

The WOD looks awesome. I'm so sad to not be there for it :(

The Wigan Crossfitter said...

Hard WOD there (hey when do we ever get an easy one?).

I got 2 calluses from doing just over 8 weeks of crossfit. I did 4 years of Globo gym workouts and zip...

Oh well, I hope your shift goes by quickly.

I was glad to see you this morning! I enjoyed this WOD, what I didn't enjoy was feeling as sluggish as I did. I think I finished in 36 something, though - so that's not TOO bad! :-)

Katie said...

Justa, I'll never tell... ;)

Jen, calluses are literally a pain!

Georgia, grab you a KB and a coffee table! 3-2-1... ;)

Steve, I don't think I've ever had an 'easy one'. I think that's kinda the point of CF though... :P

Cara it was good to see you too! You've been all over the place lately too! (time wise I mean)
