Kevin Bacon Inspires New CrossFit WOD

Nicole was tough yesterday. I was disappointed on my pull ups, but I managed to get lots of reps in and the 400 m runs were no problem (all 6 of them!). Results were 2400m run with 64 total jumping pull ups in 20 minutes (6 rounds). I'm feeling like such a weenie when it comes to pull ups. I need to get over the intimidation factor and just do it! Dang. I'll have plenty of opportunities to redeem myself here soon, because pull ups are a CrossFit favorite! Today's workout is another favorite. Can't wait to take it on: WOD: "Annie Are You OK?" 3 Rounds for Time Reps: 21 - 15 - 9 Row for calories Dumbbell Thrusters (25 lb) Sumo Deadlift High Pull (16 kg Kettle Bell) Burpees Med Ball Clean (20 lb) Wall Ball (14 lb) I keep hoping that I'll show up at the gym and the WOD will be "Kevin Bacon: Never". Wouldn't that be awesome! Love this scene - especially when he leaps 6 times in a row.How does he do that?! He's all hopped-up on love and teen angst. Damn that lame ass town! They just want to DANCE!!!: In other news, I'm gearing up for Heather's wedding this weekend and the Halloween festivities next week. Since I'm on a budget (part of the whole life change thing), I'm either going to recycle a cocktail dress to wear to the wedding or a costume for Halloween. If I buy anything new, it will be one or the other. I may end up just using what I have for both! I can always get new shoes and accessories to change it up - its the babe-on-a-budget thing to do. (Look at me - I'm frugal!) Bottom line is - I'll have fun no matter what I'm wearing. :)
