Battle of the beach.

(Forgot to post this one)
Hey!
New week and it´s Monday! :) I´m not that as enthusiastic as it sounds, it´s Monday and I´m tired. Haha! Had a great weekend in Helsingborg together with the Northernspirit gang! The Battle of the Beach was a great beach competition and the sun was with us all day! I met up with Anna on Saturday morning and we got the first WOD.

12 min AMRAP of:
12 front squat
9 burpees in the sand
6 shoulder to overhead.
I think the weight on the bar was 30 or 35 kg?
We each do one lap and then rest while the other person goes! Nice WOD and you can lower your pulse when resting!

Second WOD was:
Run down to the beach and around a marker in the water 5m out and back.
40 OHS
40 box jump
Run down to the beach and around a marker in the water 5m out and back.
30 OHS
30 box jump
Run down to the beach and around a marker in the water 5m out and back.
20 OHS
20 box jump
Run down to the beach and around a marker in the water 5m out and back.

Best WOD – nice to play in the water!

Third WOD:
One person is holding a kettlebell the other one is working on
50 back squat
50 goblet squat (16 kg)
50 american swings
50 goblet squat
50 thrusters
50 goblet squat

10 burpees penalty if you let go of the KB.

I dropped the KB after the last goblet squats. Angry and disappointed. Finished in third place total. Can I say that i missed pull-ups and MU-ups? :)

But it was a nice day and after a few hours I was back on track and happy again. It was really nice to team with Anna! She put in a great effort into the WOD´s and was in a great mood all the time!
Today my legs are on fire! Feels really stiff and today I will work out with a olympic lifting coach!
