Day off... I dont think so

Feeling fairly worn down from the last few WODs but I am finding very hard to not be lured in by the Sirens of Crossfit.  Instead of enchanting music and voices it comes in the form of programming.   The programming this week in particular has been either right in my wheel house or at the other end of the spectrum.  The WODs that are my goats I want to do so i can get better and the WODs that play to my strengths I wanted to scale up and test myself.   I know I shouldn't do 5 days in a row but I couldn't stop myself.  Especially after I saw today's WOD - pullups and running!!! Oh yeh bring it on.  I was thinking about the WOD and what part I would try to focus on.  Initially I thought I would kill myself on the runs but then decided that if I put the weighted vest on it would challenge me on the pullups and help me build running strength.  After I decided to do this I started searching for the vest and found out Coach John took it to Maine for the weekend.   The good news was I had enough time to run home and get it before we started. 

Run 400m
21 Pullups
Run 400m
18 Pullups
Run 400m
15 Pullups
Run 400m
12 Pullups
Run 400m

Total time - 13:32 with 20lb weighted vest

1st run 1:48   - pullups 36 seconds = 2:24
2nd run 2:19  - 43 seconds = 5:27
3rd run 2:26  37 seconds = 8:31
4th run 2:23  31 seconds = 11:26
5th run 2:05

I thought that I had 3 more rounds when I was on my 4th run so I was a little suprised when I relooked at the board and saw that we didnt go down to 6 pullups.

I decided today that If I am going to make the Games next year I have to continue to scale up and work on my strength.
