WOD - Jackie



"Jackie"

1000m Row
50 Thrusters [45lbs]
30 Pull-ups

Time: 9:24

On Mondays we do benchmark workouts and today was "Jackie". The first thing you need to know about benchmark WODs named after a woman, is that it will probably kick you in the nuts. The second thing you need to know is that if there is someone in your box that actually has the same name, you stand to get kicked in the nuts twice if you make jokes like "I'm gonna murder Jackie" or "I'm gonna beat Jackie like a narc at a biker rally".

This one is intended to be faster than most although it frustrated me a little early on in the row. I can only go so fast in the row and it took me almost 4 mins. I expected it to but it still felt like it went on forever. I felt pretty good thru the thrusters and the pull-ups. I finished first in the morning class today and that doesn't happen often so I was pretty happy. It must have been all that meat I had this weekend that gave me strength....
