CF with Ironworks!

So, throat pain has lessened so didn't go to doctor - anything to save me from a trip there is good.

I was feeling up to a workout, so I took my bike with me to the Farms and when I dropped the kids off for Ironworks, I headed out to ride 10 miles - avg.19.2mph (31 minutes)...felt good and wasn't pushing too hard.

When I got back, I was ready for the CF WOD that Max put together for Ironworks - I was doing the 1-2pm slot so that my kids would not be embarrassed by me doing it at the same time as them. Warm up was 1/2 mile run, 2 x 1 minute planks (hard) and 1-10 walk out push-ups (real, which I never do, but felt pressured...dropped to the knees on 8-10.)

WOD was 1 lap around rink, 5 burpees, 5 wall balls - AMRAP in 7 minutes...completed 4 full rounds, 1 lap, 5 burpees and 3 wall balls.
Part II was 5x95# deadlifts, 20 jump ropes, 20 sit-ups - AMRAP in 7 minutes. Completed 6 full sets, the 5 deadlifts, 20 jump ropes and 7 situps.

That was hard but felt so good! And I wasn't the last one coming in on either set...bonus!!


  1. So what is the deal with Ironworks for adults? Thought it was not happening or was it just the am session that did not get enough people? Also consider changing your blogname - LP - already did that, it has come and you tore it up!

  2. way to go and tear up Ironworks! Wish I was closer — sounds like so much fun :)

  3. Thanks Mary.
    Erica...did it with kids: better than alone. Nothing for adults yet, but hoping to get one up and going soon! And yes, just need to figure out how to change the title.
    Pam - would love to have you do it! But I know what you mean...proximity is everything!
