I wonder…

What kind of music do the Boston Bruins like to hear during the games? What plays on the Ipod of the runner who has ever won a marathon? What music is playing in the background of during Olympic lifting competitions? Since the answers are none, nothing since he isn’t wearing one, and none respectively, I wonder about something else now. How do these athletes perform without being able to listen to music during their events? What could they possibly be focusing on, if not the volume, speed, quality, genre, pandora station, pitch, beat, lyrics, name of record, publishing date of song, name of children from the featured recording artist, or if it’s available on iTunes? My guess is literally anything else.

When I go see the Moncton Miracles or the Wildcats play a game, they do play music. But it’s when they’re not playing-  during the breaks or intermission. So today’s workout will mimic a game. During all the rest periods, we’ll crank it! Just so you can see what it’s like to be a high level athlete.

(Today’s post brought to you by CrossFit Back Bay)

Max reps in 4 minutes of:

100m Run
5 Hang Power Cleans (135/95# or 65%)
7 Burpees

Rest 1 minute. Repeat for a total of 4 cycles.

Compare to Oct.18/11

    Truck Pull
    1:02 w/ Sean
    0:26 w/ Sean and Tania
    0:32 w/ Gillyon and Glenda

    My first time doing these! I like this better than sled pulls… much better. Share the pain!

    WOD @ 60#
    Round 1) 2 + 2 burpees
    Round 2) 2 + 1 burpee
    Round 3) 2 + 2 burpees
    Round 4) 2 + 1 burpee

    122 reps.

    I was aiming for consistency. I am happy on how this WOD turned out! 🙂

    Truck pulls!
    1 with Heidi (over 1:30 ?!?!)
    2 with Heidi and Trent (20 something seconds)
    3 with Heidi and Tania (20 or 30 something)

    WOD @ 85#
    1 – 2 rounds + 1 burpee (30 reps)

    4 – 2 rounds + approx. 25m run (24 reps)

    Total 102 reps … not 112 (math was not good after this wod) Did get many more reps than last time, but used 85# instead of 70 🙂 and the cleans was the easiest part (for me)

    Took my sweet ass time walking back to the gym after the 3rd round and gave me a late start for the 4th. Not sure why I had 3 cycles in my head rather than 4. Should have had the 144 reps so will need to aim higher than 144 next time.

    1. Shane Hayes

    Truck pulls – can’t remember the name of the girl I did the first two with. Girl who wasn’t feeling well after, Lori maybe? Last one was with Anca and Maddy I think. Sorry, my memory sucks. You all did awesome regardless.

    Told Kevin 96 but I blocked out the 2nd round for some reason.

    Definitely never eating Chinese before a wod again. Bad idea.

  24. Truck pulls were interesting…in the “we should do these again!” kind of way. 🙂

    WOD: 58 Reps

    I’m sure being away from the gym for 2 weeks didn’t help, but i reinforced my need to be more consistent!

    Thanks to everyone who jumped on the bandwagon and blew up my FB account with messages, this morning! It really made a huge difference and meant more than you know! I wasn’t expecting that! LOL!

    Kevin: Highly effective approach you have implemented there…. 😛

    1. Tania

      Yay Robyn! Everyone encouraged you but you ultimately made that step! Great job and look forward to working out with you again!

    Happy that it was 1:1 for the run today though 🙂

    I didn’t miss the music. What I missed was AIR! So hard to breathe today. I envy all those who got to run, if for no other reason than you getting a breath of (stinky) air.

    Great work 5:45 crew.

      1. Lora

        It was pretty steamy. And not in the good way. LOL!

        One more week (physio’s orders) and I can try a little running! YIPPEEEE!!

  27. Heidi

    WU x 1
    Truck Pulls x 3. Don’t remember the times, but nothing impressive, that’s for sure. (I think I was dragging my partners down)

    WOD with HPC’s @ 80#

    Rd 1: 2 rounds + 6 burpees = 35 reps
    Rd 2: 2 rounds + 1 HPC = 25 reps
    Rd 3: 2 rounds + 5 HPC = 29
    Rd 4: 2 rounds + 4 HPC = 28 reps
    Total reps = 117

    Good one, but not even close to my previous PR of 144 reps on this one. I added 10# to the HPC, but I didn’t think it would have made that much of a difference. I’ll put some blame on the residual effects of yesterday thruster marathon.

  28. Amanda

        WOD brain? I had to use a calculator. I prefer WODs with a “time”, not a “total” because I have math issues when my brain is deprived of oxygen.
