Christmas Eve day in Austin, TX. Which meant 77 degrees and perfectly sunny.
So I grabbed my 20 kg (44 lb) Kettle bell, a sit up mat, and my stop watch and headed to a hidden gem in Austin’s park system, Common’s Ford Ranch (a 255-acre park down on Lake Austin).
Before digging into a traditional Christmas Eve dinner of tamales (with chili con queso), charro beans, and plenty of Pinot Noir…I devised the following Crossfit WoD:
5 Rounds for time of:
- 400m run
- 20 Kettle bell swings (full overhead)
- 15 sit ups
- 10 push ups
I used Google’s GMaps Pedometer to measure out 400m on the park trail where I was doing my WoD.
My total time was pretty good: 23:24.
I credit the great weather and beautiful surroundings.
Turned out to be a great metcon workout. The Kettle bell swings really require a lot of leg and hip drive, so doing them right after the run was a nice burn.
