Jen

4 rounds for time:

100 single unders

400m run

50 sit-ups

She looks innocent enough…but her bite is FIERCE!

So, this is a workout that I created a couple of months ago. I laugh thinking of Nick’s response when I came up with the workout… He took one look at the running and looked at me and said, “Who ARE you?”

It used to be that if I showed up to Crossfit and there was even just a 200m run on the whiteboard, I delve to a level of grumpiness that could only be brought on by something wretched..running. I haaaaaaaated running! So to create a workout that had this much running in it is almost as if it were created by the hand of someone completely different! Well, in all reality, I AM a completely different person than I was when I started Crossfit…but anyway.

The first time I did this workout a couple of months ago, I got a time of 24 minutes.

Nick expected the same greatness out of me (yes, I am tooting my own horn, it was greatness…I pushed myself as hard as I have pushed myself in far too long!) this time around. The last time I did it I was wearing my pink high-top chucks, and got a mad rash on my back from some crazy chemical the city of Santa Barbara sprayed on our poor lawn.

My lovely boss, Matt (at lulu), likes to check up on that rash from time to time by loudly asking me “Hey, how’s that rash doing??”…in front of customers…haha.

I digress…

My first time was about 24 minutes…so last night I decided to change just one thing. I decided to go barefoot. I haven’t done much barefoot running at all, so I was nervous to find out what would happen to my feet after a quick mile run.

I’m not going to lie to you, about 3/4 way through my first 400m, I started whimpering thinking, I can’t doooooooooo this. Then, I mentally b%#tch slapped myself in the face and said, “stop whining, YES YOU CAN!” and went straight to the sit-ups. After that whole workout, I only had a little bit of raw skin on the bottom of my foot (although, I think I have abnormally tough feet since the last time I went for a pedicure the guy performing the procedure..yes procedure, took out a bottle and just pointed at it and said “we need…” and scrolled across the bottle was “Callas Remover”…awww mannnnn). I definitely woke up in the middle of the night with throbbing feet as well, but by this morning, it was nothing to write home about.

So, did I beat my time?

Well, I did my final sit-up at…

22:50!!!

I crushed my last time…BEING BAREFOOT!!! I swear I’m way faster barefoot…I was pacing less than 7 minutes for my mile time…crraaazzzzyyyy!

This is such a great workout, and its a workout you can do ANYWHERE…you just need a rope 🙂

On to even MORE exciting news…

Tomorrow morning, Nick and I will be driving down to LA to watch our friends from Crossfit Route 1 in Beverly compete as a team in the CROSSFIT GAMES!!!!!! Read all about it HERE!! and read about our beastly buddies HIZZZ-ERE!
