I watched all of the individual competitions and the affiliate competitions, intermittently, while I did laundry and cleaned house. I really just can't even imagine what these athletes' bodies must feel like right now. I can totally appreciate the movements and weight (for the most part) these women are moving around, but can not even fathom the workouts that they are getting through. And, the craziest part...they make it look easy! I have so much respect for these competitors and can't wait to see what's in store for tomorrow...but, really I can't even imagine.

I found this WOD while checking out one of my favorite blogs, TheClothesMaketheGirl. She did a version of this today, but after clicking on the link to see where she got the idea, I decided just to do the workout as originally created. I did decide to do 25 double unders, instead of the recommended 100 singles.
I did the push ups as recommended today, at the games- touch your body to the ground/deck and lift hands from the ground (just so that the judges could see that your chest was actually to the ground)...nice! This was a great workout! But, my hands tore doing the pull ups and knees to elbows...and as I contemplated skipping my last 9 pull ups, I thought of all those bloody, blistered hands during WOD #2 and realized that I would survive 9 more. And, I did.
BTW...good call on Rich Froning Jr., Lisa! He's impressive!!! Did you get sucked in all day, like I did?
