12-07-17: That time I thought I was gonna die

Elm City CrossFit WoD for Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Annie Sakamoto showing fantastic form on the long-stride version of the walking lunge. Note the knee lightly touching the ground, to truly light her quads on fire. (CrossFit)
How I felt about 2 rounds into this beast... (

You'd better believe I was hallucinating through most of the crabwalks... (

WoD: 5 Rounds for Time
  • 20 Walking Lunges [un-weighted, each time your knee touches the ground = 1 rep]
  • 200 meter run
  • 1 Bear Crawl Loop [marked off inside gym]
How hard could it be... 5 rounds, some running, some lunges, a few bear crawls... How hard could it be?

Um. Very hard. I'm not writing this until a little over a week later, and I still remember the feeling that I was going to die round about the 3rd bear crawl. The feeling of utter suffocation was unbearable. The lunges were bad, the runs were terrible... but the bear crawls... deadly.

Total time: An eternity - a few minutes.
