Getting Real Day 52


I did not sleep very well. I could not get comfortable and was restless much of the night.



2 hard boiled eggs, 3 slices prosciutto, and mixed greens with olive oil and vinegar. I did not have breakfast until 9am which is 2.5 hours later than normal because I had to have some blood work done this morning which required fasting.



Taco salad: ground beef and onions with taco seasonings, romaine, 12 grape tomatoes, and guacamole.


Special 9/11 Tribute WOD
For Time:
2001m Row or 2001m Run (1.25 miles)
11 Box Jumps (30″ / 24″)
11 Thrusters (125# / 85#)
11 Burpee Chest to Bar Pull-ups
11 Power Cleans (170# / 120#)
11 HSPUs
11 KB Swings (2 pood / 1.5 pood)
11 Toes to Bar
11 Deadlifts (170# / 120#)
11 Push Jerks (110# / 75#)
2001m Row or 2001m Run (1.25 miles)

The workout itself is completely symbolic of 9/11. The 2001 meter row represents the year the attack took place. The 11 reps of 9 exercises represents the date (9/11). Even the weights have meaning.
The 125 pound thrusters represents the number of deaths that occurred at the Pentagon. The 175 pound power clean symbolizes the AA Flight 175 that hit the South Tower. The 170 pound deadlift is symbolic of Flight 77 and Flight 93 combined. And the 110 pound push jerk represents the number of floors in each tower of the World Trade Center.

Please remember the coaches are going to scale as needed. You are honoring the fallen people by participating whether you RX it or not.

My score: 23:06, intermediate, 1000m row to start and finish, scaled the weights significantly.



cucumber slices, 1 bell pepper, 8 baby carrots. I only ate the veggies in the photos. This was meant to just be a snack but then I was tired and not hungry so I did not eat anything else.


Reasonably good day but tired.
