Thursday's Perfect Push-Ups

Have I ever mentioned my immense dislike of push-ups? I'm just checkin'. Cause you know, I really don't like them. Maybe we should just establish this one small fact.... if I can't throw it over my head, onto my shoulders, or squat it, I'm probably not going to like it. I'm just sayin'. :P

Anyway, this was some particular brand of nastiness though. I mean it. The wod itself is this.

Pick your poison
For time
150 120 90 60 30

However, for every rep where you miss rom or if you rest, on the bottom or top, you have a pull-up penalty. That being said... here are your penalties.

15 12 9 6 3

Uh huh... ummmmmmmm.... about that.... so yeah, I don't know exactly how many pull-ups I did this morning, but it was a bunch. I went with the 90's and that was plenty for me, although I felt like a giant wuss since I couldn't do the full 150. I feel like I really ought to be better at these but erring on the side of caution... I went with the 90's today. I did the extra which was some 400 meter run work and I called it a day. I'm praying for work tonight and tomorrow to go quickly so I can get to the weekend..... please hurry!
