Death by Deck - The Short Post

It's Month End, which means the phrase, "I can't; I have to work," is a common saying around my house lately. 12 hour days long into the wee hours of the morning aren't rare during the last week or so of every... single...month...without fail.

 So, while I'd like to make this beautifully long, painfully sincerely, and deeply candid...


I can't; I have to work.

So ya'll are just getting the WOD (that's 'Work Out of the Day for those not familiar with crossfit lingo) that I made up.

 I'm hence forth calling my Death by Deck work out.

 I hit my work out - 16 minutes of as many rounds as possible of the following:
50 unbroken jump rope skips
15 sit ups
5 Burpees

I got through 5 and 2/3rds before the alarm went off and time was up. The jump rope was not kind today... either that, or it's a sign that my fine motor skills aren't quite back to full force after knocking myself silly last week...
Whatever the excuse reason, I didn't meet my goal of at least 7 rounds.
 So I had to endure the (self-imposed) punishment.

2x 1-minute planks with 20 seconds rest in between.

By this point, I had sweat dripping off my face (damn you planks) and I was ready to just lay there for a while.

Alas, time was awasting! Time to nail my feet back to my desk.

At least it was a beautiful evening for Death by Deck!
Now, back to a nap  work!

  1. That sounds like a rough workout. Good job pushing through, those 12 hour workdays can't be easy on your workouts. Yet, you are still killing it!
