Eva

In my opinion Eva is one of the toughest girls.  She’s like Helen (which I really like), but with more volume, and more weight.  Think about it, 2.5 miles of running, 150 heavy kettlebell swings, and 150 pull-ups.  Sure it’s for time, but just being able to complete Eva deserves at least a small badge of honor.  On second thought, don’t think about it, just do it.

  1. Holy Crap. What a challenge!
    45:49(?) scaled down to 12KB and 1purp+1red
    Happy Friday! I am getting in an ice bath….

    1. Eva, you are a brutal girl.

      Finished 4 rounds in 41:15 (purple band, 1 pood KB). I could have done the 5th round, but it likely would have taken a good 20 minutes on its own. Arms were completely gassed.

      Wimpering in the parking lot during KB swings aside…great WOD 🙂

  2. Attempted as Rx, completed 4 rounds in the time limit (44:07)

    Once again, the pull-ups were the limiting factor for me. I was torn open by round 2, and it was slow going from there. My new goal: correct my pull-up grip and form so as to minimize tears. It would be really nice to be able to wash my hands again without pain.

  3. Man was this a tough one! Have I mentioned that I suck at running? 44mins and change but only 4 rounds…..24kg and no bands….I think pull-ups were the only thing that I was half way decent at!

  4. Why am I excited about my first torn calluses!?!? My favorite part of today was when I showed Eric, who just shrugged and said “Finish it!” Despite the injury, work did not let me call in sick… DARN!

    5 rounds @ 46:17 scaled (12kg, purple & red)

  5. Wow… my first group working at CFF. It’s been over 24 hours and I’m still sore as hell. Hated every minute of it – in a good way.
