I went swimming again a few times this weekend. I worked on upping the number of lengths I do in the breast stroke. I passed the husband again which made him switch from the breast stroke to freestyle to go lots faster. Good thing we aren’t competitive.


The 12 days of Christmas workout:

  • 1 rope climb or 2 pull to stands
  • 2 burpees
  • 3 handstand push ups or 6 pikes
  • 4 thrusters – bar at chin, squat and then stand and push bar overhead
  • 5 chest to bar pull ups or body rows
  • 6 russian twists with a 25 lb plate
  • 7 kettle bell swings
  • 8 toes to bar
  • 9 wall balls
  • 10 calorie row
  • 11 kettle bell halos
  • 12 deadlifts

When I looked at that I wondered why they were being so nice to us.  That’s nothing.  I mean, this is Crossfit.  We never ever EVER do only two burpees.  Then I got worried.

Turns out that the workout is done like the freakin’ song.  So it really goes – 1 rope climb – 2 burpees and 1 rope climb – 3 handstand push ups, 2 burpees and 1 rope climb – 4 thrusters, 3 handstand push ups, 2 burpees and 1 rope climb – etc.

I got to the 12th round in the 30 minutes allowed.  I was on the row.
