Today I....

For a couple of reasons, but the most important is that I want to get a WOD in. So I picked out a toughie:

For time:

Ivan the Terrible:
90 seoncds of jumping rope
50 lunges
50 pushups
50 situps
90 seconds of jumping rope
40 lunges
40 pushups
40 situps
90 seconds of jumping rope
10 lunges
10 push ups
10 situps

This is going to be brutal. But, in many ways, I love brutal WODs. The chippers. The ones that take time and really push your mind and body. I love them. The push up are going to be the hardest part of this. I have so little upper body strength and my time off has made it worse. But I'll get through them one way or another. Okay, I'm off to change and get this party started. Wish me luck :)

Update: Time was 35:53. Had to swap out the lunges for squats, lunges are too hard on the knee. Other than that, I did it as prescribed :)
