Workout 3/12: Tommy V

Another "Hero" workout. Another chance to focus on persecution and martyrdom. Haresh Kujur is on my mind today as he was recently kidnapped while leading a youth church service in India. I am blessed to live in a country where I do not have to live with the fear of being taken from my house or my church based on my beliefs and values. So whatever you believe today, if you are living in a country with religious freedom, be extremely thankful and keep those who risk their lives for their beliefs in your prayers and thoughts.

CrossFit: Tommy V
For Time:
85# Thrusters x 15
120 Towel Pull-ups
85# Thrusters x 12
60 Towel Pull-ups

30 Towel Pull-ups
(Time: 20:05)

*I...can'! It is now about three hours after doing this workout, and I am finally feeling like I am back to normal. For about an hour after this one, I felt like I was going to faint, puke, and have my arms hanging like dead fish from my sockets for a year. I knew I was in bad shape from the start when the crook of my right elbow was in serious pain-ola. Now that I have injested lots of water, eaten fruit, and been infused with ibuprofin, I have reached a state of near normalcy. Time to make a decision though, should I take a break from CF during Spring Break or continue on in this madness. Maybe I should listen to the crook of my elbow more often. "What's that you say? Do more with the legs over the next few weeks? Okay, I'll think about it."*Photo courtesy of

Why are you moderating comments?

Mr. Mirek said...

Moderating comments since some yahoos keep trying to spam and/or add viruses to my comments. Just taking precautions, and because I want to make sure you all are making acceptable comments...just kidding!

Oh yeah, here's a shout out to the gummibears provided by Tanya. I bet that was the magic potion that helped me feel 100% later on in the day. Seriously, thanks for feeding my sugar habit Tanya. It's so ZONE friendly. :)
