Going Nutts on CrossFit


…and there I was thinking Nutts was bad (whose idea was 100 wall balls anyway?!), and then I heard about the 100 burpee pull-ups the following day! Thank gods for rest days!

After a 3 week hiatus from CrossFit (2 week holiday and a week’s procrastination period), Nutts was just plain crazy. The rest was doable, but the 100 wall balls was just pure insanity!

I knew it wasn’t a good sign, when at 11 I was panting like crazy and thinking that I honestly wouldn’t get through all of them. By 80, instead of bouncing back and throwing the ball back at the wall, each returning ball just floored me. But I got through them. And then some.

The most important thing? I survived it!

And boy was I glad about deciding to rest every second day this week when I heard about the 100 burpee pull-ups that were in store for the following day!!
