Fight Gone Bad(der)

CrossFit 2A threw Fight Gone Bad into the WOD mix today. I think of this workout like "The Walking Dead" - it is so great because it is so horrible.

The workout: 3 rounds for time - 1 min 20# wall balls, 1 min sumo deadlift high pull 75#,1 min box jump 24", 1 min push press 75#, 1 min row for calories, and 1 minute of rest.

The last recorded score I had for this was last December - 188 reps. At the time, I had only been CrossFitting for about 6 months. Based on how I did last month re-testing the Opens, I expected to much better on FGB today.

And I did. I came in at 239 reps, beating my old score by 51 reps. This is an improvement of 27%.  This is part of what I love about CrossFit - the benchmark workouts are concrete measures of your progress.

I still felt like a wet rag by the end, and my rounds got progressively worse as I progressed. I know that the next time I will be even badder.
