I chose Ruth Anne and did it in 27:25. I'm coming back off of a running hiatus following an injury, so this was the farthest I have run all at once in a long time. It was rough, but I'm so happy that I didn't have any pain!

Beth – 16:59. 15 lb dumb bells.

Question to all the mamas: I have an awesome 1hr long Zumba class I do on Thursday nights. Do you guys count that as a workout or would you do both?
October 3, 2012 at 3:07 pm
No WOD for me today. Hurt my ankle sometime yesterday! Was okay during the day, but when I finally sat down last night had to ice it and take some Motrin. :/

Andrews Family: Zumba counts as working out for sure. But it's a different kind of work out than a WOD (depending on the WOD). Most WODs focus on strength training, flexibility, and the cardio component comes in from doing the moves as quickly as possible without losing form. Zumba is just a cardio routine, with no strength training (right? I only did it once and there were no weights incorporated). Todays WOD is a pretty straight cardio-based WO (as opposed to strength training heavy WOD). For today, I would do what you feel comfortable with. Jenni said that if your goal is weight loss adding an extra cardio AFTER your WOD will help. If you're just doing the WOD for toning up, general strength training, and fitness you could just do the Zumba and skip todays WOD if you want!
Hope that helps!
May or may not make this WOD…still not feeling great 🙁 Plus it's pouring again! Ahhh!!

Betty13:39 but I messed up my measurements a bit =(
October 3, 2012 at 3:49 pm
Ruth Anne-23:30! My fastest 5K so far! I've never been a fast runner so this is amazing for me. Love these WODs, Jenni!

Ruth Anne – 32:08. I'm sure my running was pretty comical for the first 1/2 mile or so until my glutes loosened up a little after yesterday's WOD.
October 3, 2012 at 4:13 pm
Ruthann25:404.3 kmCouldn't bring myself to run past my house at the end to get the other .7km. Lame I know!
October 3, 2012 at 4:26 pm
Ruth Anne in 32:45. I had to slow at the end of every half mile loop to check on the girls who were playing in the back of the suburban. (The car was in sight the whole time, and the girls had a great time. Lots better than pushing them in the stroller!)
October 3, 2012 at 4:43 pm

It's my 2nd day of WOD but first time commenting. I did Ruth Ann for 25 mins. Intervals of walk/running. Just getting started with running. I am also a mom of 4! (10, 8, 2 1/2 and 3 months) Love reading the comments from your blog for motivation! Thanks for posting the WODS!Kelly 1/21

Ruth Anne in 32:01
Beth – 15:09
October 3, 2012 at 6:01 pm
"Betty" in 28:33. I'm just glad I didn't DNF. I can barely get off the toilet this week, let alone run 3200 meters gracefully. So there was a lot of walking mixed in. My legs are ticked off at me!
October 3, 2012 at 6:06 pm
Lol. I know what you mean about the toilet. Going up and down the stairs isn't fun either. My kids keep trying to sit on my lap! NOOO!!
October 3, 2012 at 6:55 pm
I've decided that my thighs hate me right now!! 😀

October 3, 2012 at 7:05 pm
I was initially going to combine Betty and Beth to do 4 sets of 800 m with bench press but it ended up being a wonky day..
In 19:47 I did 3 rounds of 650m (0.4 miles) and 15 bench presses with 20#. Definitely wasn't feeling it today, so I'm pretty proud that I made it past round 1! 🙂

Beth — 19:30, but used dumbbells instead of bench press and getting over a nasty cold so I can't run as fast as I would like.
October 3, 2012 at 8:46 pm
Ruth Anne: 34:00…it took me forever to get going…legs actually feel much better now its over.

Ruth Anne 33:37, but I walked the first 2 minutes to warm myself up!
October 3, 2012 at 8:54 pm
23:20 5kMy sister is in town. Ran 6.5 miles total
October 3, 2012 at 8:55 pm
Beth – 32:30 – Benchpress w/24 lb dumbbells – split the running segments into 6 1/4 mile segments – slow jogged (4 mph) for a combined total of 1/2 mile (never did that far before – SO proud of myself!) walked 3.5 mph the remaining mile – All I did my last quarter mile segment was smile!
I won't be around to do tomorrow's WOD (field trip all day), so I'll do it on Saturday. Still loving this!!
October 3, 2012 at 10:06 pm
30 min. Ruth Anne.

October 3, 2012 at 11:18 pm
I am a day behind on my WOD's so I just completed Tuesdays. Thank you for the Betty WOD! I am looking forward to doing it tomorrow and working off some birthday cake! 🙂
October 3, 2012 at 11:20 pm
Betty24:26Push Press with 20l Dumbbells
(Possibly Dumb Question: Does that count are 40lbs?)
October 3, 2012 at 11:29 pm
Yes. Definitely 40 lbs.
October 3, 2012 at 11:28 pm
So so sore I can barley walk let alone run. Today will be a rest day and I will do this Saturday.
October 4, 2012 at 12:02 am
Ruth Anne: 28:34

Ruth Anne 30:56 on some hilly Colorado terrain!
October 4, 2012 at 1:04 am
I felt up to it!! 🙂
35:40 while pushing my son in the stroller. The run was mostly hills and I am actually pretty pleased with my overall time. I had to walk up some of the hills too, so I think without the stroller and without walking I would have done better than in the past! Can't wait to see this time improve too!!

Just completed Ruth Anne in 34:52. Frustrated with the time, but very happy that I started and finished it completely. Every part of me wanted to stop at 3.0 miles and call it complete, but I made myself finish the last 0.2 and I so glad that I did. 🙂 Yesterday was my first WOD and I forgot to post that my name is Tiffany from a small town in central Texas where we have no cross fit facility within 45 miles. I found this blog from a pin on Pinterest. Thanks!!

Ruth Anne5K in 26:32Compared to 30 minutes in May. Still hate running, love finishing, getting easier.
October 4, 2012 at 4:51 am
I did beth in 19:42 and I wanted to quit every second after the first lap, but I kept going and I finished. I'm so glad I did.
Ruth Anne says
October 4, 2012 at 5:33 am
Of course, I did mine! 28:10After last Friday's WOD.Happy Birthday, Beth! Happy Birthday, Betty!
October 4, 2012 at 6:59 am
Ruth Anne 38:07
Super slow but I don't care. My goal was to run the whole thing (no walking) and finish under 40min. I did and even ran the big hill.
Had my 4th baby 4 months ago and haven't run that far in several years so I wanted to see if I could!
Oh, and I did Mondays WOD this morning. There's a good chance I won't be able to walk tomorrow 😉
October 4, 2012 at 11:08 am
Beth- 23:49 Looks like I actually ran 650m instead of 500m. Guess I should measure BEFORE actually starting. Did bench press with 20lb dumbells.
October 4, 2012 at 1:44 pm
Ruth Ann.. Time was 40 mins.. Super slow, I'm tired!
October 4, 2012 at 2:06 pm
Beth…21:49. 35lb bar for BP
October 4, 2012 at 5:42 pm
Had to skip this WOD since I had some extra things going on…was going to run the 5k after today's WOD but those squat snatches killed me!
October 4, 2012 at 9:41 pm
Ruth Anne 39:49 pushing my 2 1/2 year old in the stoller. Took a long break in the middle of it to play at the beach though.
October 5, 2012 at 1:10 am
I did Beth in 23.30. Thanks.
October 5, 2012 at 1:12 am
I've been meaning to ask too, is that a picture of you Jenni on the front page of the blog?
October 5, 2012 at 1:31 am
No. She is my Crossfit motivation (but my 2 year old thinks she is me)!
October 5, 2012 at 12:28 pm
finally did my bday WOD. 23:22. Then ran another mile to get in 3 miles. A fun WOD!
October 6, 2012 at 11:38 am

Did Ruth today 5k in 33:30. First 5 min were w/u so I suspect that I could have broken te 30 min mark if I had the jam after a weekend of booze and food and not running for 3 wks.
