With 10 days left to go, those of us doing the Paleo Challenge are in the final stage. During this time we’re re-doing the first 3 WODs to see how our time has improved. WOD 1, 6 weeks ago, was brutal. It had an 18-minute time cap and it was a total of 252 reps:
Wall balls using the 14-lb medicine ball and hitting a 9-ft target
Dead lifts using a 75-lb barbell
20-inch box jumps
In the picture below, my time during the first week is in blue. It took me a full hour to recover enough to drive home. After the round of 15, I was ready to walk out. I didn’t think I’d finish as it took me over 4 minutes to get through the first round. But I finished with one minute and 26 seconds to spare.
We re-did this WOD again last night. Being on antibiotics and tired, I thought I wouldn’t complete it. Instead, I shaved 2 minutes and 1 second off my time (the time in green in the picture below).
