For the past few months a group of us have been meeting at County Farm Park Tuesdays and Thursdays for an outside workout (7:15AM, come join us if you like!) Today we had a nice warm up, modified Cindy using playground equipment, then we did our WOD. 3 agility runs, then 12 Burpees over an object of your choosing (I went cone) take 3 laps for time.
Things started off fine, but I forgot the most important rule of CrossFit, check your landing zone for poo. About 3 burpees into the first round, I landed and immediately could tell that something was off. Looked at my right hand and yep, that squish I felt was a nice little pile of dog poo. The problem was what to do? I have poo all over my hand and in between my fingers, but I’m like 2 minutes into this WOD. So, I wiped off my hand as well as I could on the grass, adjusted my landing zone, and went back at it. The WOD must go on, right?
I’m chalking this up to preparing for the unknown and unknowable. I learned a valuable lesson, always check the ground before you burpee!
