Kettlebell Thursday WOD 07252013

Yay!  The Reebok Crossfit Games are happening this weekend!  I remember the first time I went and had a blast. It was like comic con for fitness.  It was quite an experience.  Since then I have been unable to attend...last year it was CRAZY EXPENSIVE...and this year it was CRAZY EXPENSIVE AND SOLD OUT to boot!  Anyways...needless to say I am not going.  But coach is going so he had to adjust the workouts to accommodate his absence this weekend...thus another special edition Thursday WOD!

*I arrived a little early so I can get extra warmed up and stretch a little before class started.
ROW 1500M
Shaved off a second!  Did it in 6:59 and was going or trying to be steady with my cadence and just not going crazy with it.  It is just a warm up, so had to focus and just keep it steady.

Run 1 lap around the block
20 x 1 1/4 squats
30 x Walking Lunges
40 x sit ups
@ 80% for 3 rounds
*again this is a warm up, so going through all the above at a 'comfy' pace is critical.
