I’m so excited. I’ve made it my mission to work on pullups and double unders. Whenever I can, I pull out my speed rope or whatever rope I can find and I practice.
Tonight I practiced in the driveway while Andy had the sprinkler out, watering the lawn (It’s our watering day). The sprinkler would occasionally get me as it waved back and forth, but it felt really good so I didn’t move.
The last time I practiced, I resolved to do 20 double unders, and it took me a really long time. Tonight, it went much faster. So I decided to do 10 more. And that went fast! So I decided to try to string two together (I had been doing a few singles, then a double, singles, then a double).
I managed to string 5 together.
I was so proud, I ran inside to tell Andy.
“Andy! Andy! Guess what! I got 35 double unders!”
I also did my 10 negative deadhang pullups, which suck. Then I followed up with the WOD Andy did Monday. Well, sort of. It was the closest I could get without a rowing machine or a 24kg kettlebell.
35 Russian swings @ 50#
I’m going to pay for that one tomorrow. We’re doing a squat clean AMRAP. Ouch.
