Fight Gone Bad
We finished with a fun little metcon of 10 to 1 pull ups with 5 burpees between each round. I was able to get 5:14 and felt pretty good about that time. Definitely a metcon do mix in in the near future for comparisons sake.
I returned ready to go after my evening clients to attack Fight Gone Bad. Last time I did this was about 8 months ago and I got a 315, something I actually felt good about. Another good buddy, Ryan offered to help with timing and charting reps, big shout out to him for the help. Another friend asked me what I expected and I said around 350. After we talked a little, I realized that my mind kept saying 375, it was around the range of some of the top CossFitters from the games. So, I hoped to at least get close to those guys if I could.
Ryan started the clock and I just turned it on. It felt good, I mean, hard, exhausting, but I was just really enjoying each exercise, except for maybe the sumo deadlift high pulls. I moved quickly, took minimal breaks, and was spot on with my form. That has been a big focus for me lately, keeping proper form, and to be honest, I feel like it has helped my ability to keep going. I just feel that there is no real point to cheating this, I want to be fit, I want to reduce my risk of injury, so, I should take whatever measures I can to do things right.
Never Stop, GET FIT.
