When I typed the title of this post, I lazy-fingered it and put ‘Rest Dat’ instead of rest day, but I think ‘rest dat’ is just as applicable. From the feedback I’ve been hearing here and there, this was a hard week and I can agree with that. Starting off with Angie, everyone’s arms were wrecked with a few having some leg soreness. To drive the nail past the surface, Tuesday’s swings, pullups, and rowing put a definitive ‘hurting’ on the arms and finished off what Angie left behind on the legs and core. By Wednesday, the arms were probably tolerable, only to have everyone’s legs swept out from under them. Thursday’s outdoor hellfire only reincarnated whatever pain had subsided from Wednesday’s heat-infused nightmare, and after a seemingly endless session of jumping, that was the feather that made the tower fall. Most people were saying their ass was sore sore sore, so go ahead and rest dat ass! If you did every wod this week, pat yourself on the back and make yourself a water smoothie!
Post a comment if you think the wallballs on Thursday improved your squats, and include your reasoning for your vote. Also if you have anything you want to see programmed in the upcoming wods, post it up!!

Yesterday sure did have a lot of jumping… and then Kris Kross’s “Jump” comes on the radio. Perfect. All that’s missing is Van Halen!
