I finished!!!! I finished!!!!!

I am so proud to be able to say that I finished the WOD tonight.  When I got there tonight I noticed that there were 2 WODs on the board, and one was a "scaled" WOD.  my first inclination was to do the scaled WOD, and save myself the embarrassment of being the last one to finish again, or worse yet, get the trifecta of 3 DNF's in a row.  Then I thought about it, and knew that I would never have any self-respect if I always took the easy way out.  There's no time like the present to push myself beyond my limits.  Who gives a shit if I had 2 DNF's that's not a license to quit, and for me, for tonight, doing the scaled WOD would have been quitting.

I did have to modify the weight on the Push-Press to 40#
My Burpee box-jumps became Burpee Step-ups (Set #5 there was no box involved, my legs are still shot from yesterday's WOD)
and hand-stand push ups were knees on my box and doing incline push-ups with my hiney in the air as much as possible.

I completed my workout in 26 minutes and 20 seconds.

On the up-side....before I started working out, I would never have believed you if you told me that the best thing for the work-out soreness was another work-out.  kinda like the "hair of the dog" when it comes to a hang-over.  Well, it works.  As sore as I was all day, I feel better after working out tonight.  Now, I may well need a walker to get out of the bed in the morning, but it'll all be worth it!
