Pump Games Recap: Event 4 

Sunday was just as beautiful as Saturday had been.  It was sunny, breezy and not too hot.  

WOD 4 was a chipper whose bite was way worse than its bark.  In my division, it went as follows: 50 Russian kettlebell swings at 1.5 pood, 40 20" box jumps (step ups allowed), 30 115 lb deadlifts, 20 65 lb shoulder to overheads and 10 double-unders or 30 singles.

I figured the worst would be the kettlebell swings, and then once I hit the deads, I'd be good.  I was totally wrong.  The swings were just fine and went by quickly.  I did step ups for the box jumps because I'm faster at them and they don't bother my knees as much.  Still, 40 was a lot.  When I got to the deads, my legs were surprisingly shot.  I had to break the 30 up way more than I had expected.  

And then the shoulder to overheads were a slugfest.  At the end, I was only able to string two or three together at time.  

By the end of the WOD, I was completely gassed.  It took about 20 minutes for me to really catch my breath, and my Fran cough lasted for hours.
