If you are getting a tab that you know thus this week I have completed the Crossfit Filthy Fifty and my second round of 13.2 so the fact that I even dared to complete 13.3 may have been a little presumptuous of me but hey that is what Crossfit gals do right?
So I set out to attempt workout 13.3 and to be honest… even the description of 13.3 scared me a little. Ok fine. A lot.
Yep you read that right.
- 150 Wall Walls
- 90 Double-Unders
- 30 Muscle-Ups
So if you consider that I have to master the double unders and that I can’t do a muscle up (yet!) I was just a wee-bit intimidated.
But just a wee-bit.
So I subbed in 240 singles for the 90 double unders and did a mix of pull-ups and digs for the muscle-ups and didn’t even get through 1 round BUT I tried it. Try try and try again right? That is the only way to get better!
For those of you that may just be a little crazy like me, you even tried it yourself.
Like really hard.
But… workouts are about (safely) pushing your boundaries and challenging your mind and body to do things that you didn’t think you could do so I was up for the challenge and challenge me it did. The workout looks like this…
13.1 Crossfit Workout (Women up to 54 years old)

- 40 Burpees
- 45lb Snatch, 30 reps
- 30 Burpees
- 75 pound Snatch, 30 reps
- 20 Burpees
- 100lb Snatch, 30 reps
- 10 Burpees
- 120lb Snatch, as many reps as possible
Where did I get you may ask?
20 Burpees- HERE and I completed 18 of them
So needless to say I wasn’t really anywhere near completion but I worked my butt off and did the best I could. So was it hard?
Heck yes that is hard. If you don’t believe me go ahead and give it a try and then get back to me. Oh and remember to make sure you get at least 6 inches off the ground in your burpee from which you jumped up from being flat on the ground with your chest and hips touching the ground
And how did I feel the next day?
Well, in the morning my mom text me and my answer was…
But our phone call that evening on the way home from work sounded more like “Mom, I can barely drive my car my chest is so sore. Oh and I can’t sneeze or breathe deeply because it just aches.”
So I guess that answers that question.
So what’s next?
13.2 of course.
BRING. IT. ON.
