Spartan 300 Challenge

Well I took on the Spartan 300 and I'm still standing! While even though it was was in a crazy! I do like a challenge! I cannot remember if I have done Spartan or not, but how do you forget that right? I do know now that I wont forget it LOL! The workout went as follow:

Spartan WOD:

25 Pull Ups

50 Deadlifts

50 Push Ups

50 Box Jumps

50 Floor Wipers

50 KB Clean & Press

25 Pull Ups

Thanks to my AWESOME judge Heather Reed (pic below) I was able to do alot of things I didn't think I could do ...for starters my first set of pull ups...unbroken!!!
After pull ups we went to deadlift. Even though the weight was 95# it got heavy...FAST! I did 2 sets of 25 reps. After that was push ups. Oh push ups...body weight but so difficult, especially when there is 50 of them to do. Below is me taking a breather during my set...

Following push ups was box jumps...I dont' mind these. I find a focus point and turn my "go motor" on. I broke these up into sets of 10. I had to. After box jumps came the floor wipers. Let me tell you these are NOT easy as they look. I'm going to try to explain. You lay on your back and hold the bar you just deadlift (with the 95# on it). Then you take your feet and touch your toes to one side and then the other...thats 1...we had 50. I did mine in sets of 5. Ouch.

After that came the Kettle Bell Clean and Press! This wasn't bad weight....I just did 5 on the right and 5 on the left till I got to 50.

After that came the dreaded 2nd set of 25 pull ups. I wish I could say that they were as GREAT as the 1st but I'm lucky I stayed on the bar. they quickly turned into sets of 2s and 3s. I called time at 13:43 putting me 1st place in the Coaches heat! I'll take it!

HUGE Shout out to my mini me...well she has her own Relentless Bootcamps now...Chelsea Ross! She signed up and competed in the Coaches WOD and KILLED the workout! It was alot of fun showing up to the workout know she was going to be by my side suffering with me! No we didn't plan our outfits either! Way to go Chelsea...

Also Thank you Jess Clark for helping judge...your energy it what gets us through these workouts. I'm glad to be able to coach with you!
