Thursday’s workout sucks. No way around it. Sometimes we just need to do those really terrible workouts. We know they’re going to hurt, but taking on workouts like this will make us stronger physically and mentally. Learning to deal with the suck, and conquering it is an important part of CrossFit. Put your head down, plow through, and you’ll come out the other side stronger for it.
WOD: 100 Thrusters (45kg/30kg)
- Begin the workout with 5 burpees. Perform 5 burpees every minute on the minute until the thrusters are completed.
- Ideally you won’t need to put your selected weight down for the first minute. Scale down to dumbbells if necessary.
- There is a 20 minute cap on this workout.
- If you do 3 consecutive sets of burpees (15) without performing a thruster the workout is over (DNF), and you are to complete the remaining thrusters as quickly as possible, with no further burpees.
Work on your agility, coordination, and balance. Join your CrossFit Fenway friends at the Havana Club in Central Square on Saturday, October 23rd at 9 PM, for a night of salsa dancing, socializing, and fun. Lessons and libations are available to help you learn the moves. Like any WOD, proper footwear can help performance, so try to avoid rubber-soled shoes that will grip the floor and make turning more difficult.
Compete in the most physically demanding obstacle course available on Saturday, November 13th in Marshfield at Ruckus Boston 2010. Stephanie Schneider is helping to organize the CrossFit Fenway team. Please contact her if you’d like to participate, as discounts are available for teams.
