Pick you poison Friday has come around again, but matters are a little bit complicated by the ankle. Many WODs require ankle mobility, and those that do not, I’ve done already.
A few days ago, I saw a tweet from Pat Sherwood, one of the Crossfit Games Show anchor, saying that the first time he did Diane, a
dirty benchmark girl, it took him 15min, and then he spent months training for hand stand pushups, which brought his time down to some 5min. Diane does not require that much ankle mobility… so here we go.
For time: 21-15-9 of deadlift 225lbs and HSPU. It took me 12:57 to do it; I beat Pat Sherwood! Well, not really, mine was not Rx, as I couldn’t quite lock my elbows on every rep… lousy not-locking elbows! Still, my HSPU kip is progressing nicely and I’m improving. Deadlift is ok at 225lbs – it’s a heavier work weight, but I can do my reps without burning myself out.
9 days until the Spartan Race, 8 days to heal the ankle.
