Workout 4/9: Kelly

"From Now Until June"
A 6-syllable, 6-line poem by Mr. Mirek

Round around the middle!
Sweat begins to dribble...
Challenges are called for;
Maybe I can lose more.
Ten pounds less would be great.
This roundness will deflate.

CrossFit: "Kelly"
3 Rounds for Time of:
400m Run
30 Bench Jumps
30 Wall Ball Shots (15# Medicine Ball)
(Time: 18:48.13)Happy National Poetry Month everyone! I challenge you all to write a CrossFit or Fitness inspired poem today. Feel free to add it to my comments! I'd love to hear what you all have to say.

Paul, you are awesome! I love that Poem. You my friend should start publishing these after you've collected a few 100. I'll buy the very first one that you publish.


Mr. Mirek said...

Thanks! Not sure I could cover the publishing costs with one sale though. Thanks for the suggestion!

Someone posted this a long time ago... I liked it and saved it, but I forget who actually wrote it. (Not William Carlos Williams!)

This Is Just to Say

I have left
a sweat angel
on the mats
in your gym

and which
you were probably
for cardio classes

Forgive me
I was exhausted
so sweaty
and so spent

Katie said...

Fire in my lungs
No end in sight

Twenty becomes 10
Burning in my arms

10 is now five
Still far to go

Drop the bar
Can't stand straight

Voice behind me
Pick it up

Five is none
I'm made it through

Collapsed on the mat
Now, round two.

Tanya said...

I prefer a haiku...

Wanting true pullups
Construction men think I'm weird
I try in the gym

And patrick...I love the sweat angel comment. Love it!

Rest day comes
I will my body to repair
Will my body repair

In time for tomorrow's WOD?

The will to push through
I spend the rest day
