    DU’s were pretty rough with no rhythm at all. Couldn’t seem to get them started in the first round, tried again in the second round. So…. I guess this should be my skill to work on the rest of this week. Hard to improve with no practice 😉

    ~ Cashout… 2 minute Plank.

    ring dips w green band
    150 singles
    time= 14:26

    First time doing knees to elbows was hard enough. Really had to concentrate on getting a big kipping movements, most reps were 1 or 2 after the first 5. OHS were hard on the arms specially the very last rep @ #75. I surprised myself going up that rope tonight. Great Job everyone 🙂

    WOD

    25 K2E (on rings)
    25 Ring dips (with green band)
    50 double unders (sub 150 singles)
    Time = 9:53

    Very happy with this…my time on this WOD in April was 15:50 (same size band for dips and same K2E on rings). I tried double unders for that WOD but gave up after much frustration. Did straight single unders this time.

    Speaking of single unders, I think its time I put on my big girl panties and work on my double unders (programming this week has made that super evident for me). The only thing I’m getting better at is doing single unders *sigh*….

    Cashout: rope climb and some shoulder stretching (ahhhhhhh)

      1. I can get a few in a row (I think my PR is 17, but that was a few months ago)….I just get so frustrated doing them in WODs because, well, frankly, I suck at them 🙂

  17. Split Jerk x3
    95-135-155-165-170×2

    Ring dips were tough for sure. Nice work 5:30 class. Awesome PR on the front squats Lora!

  18. WUx2

    Push Jerks x 3
    65-75-85-105-125(PR)

    Before the WOD I was practicing my double unders and it’s the first time since fundamentals that I succeed at doing a double under, and I even did a few 🙂

    WOD: 2 Rounds
    – 25 v-snaps
    – 25 paralettes
    – 150 Singles (First round unbroken, Second round got up to 120)

    Time: 8:19

    3 Rope climbs. I don’t know if I ever climbed a rope like this ever before, I was pretty pumped to find out that I could so I did an extra 2 🙂

    Great night!
