Agnarr: ZOMBIES!

Zombie Shakespeare

Zombie Shakespeare represents study. That and my love for The Simpsons. A total of 6 hours a week

 

I owe you guys a write up of the Zombie Run OCR this last saturday. While I write that, I'll leave you with my high pitched voice and messed hair and beard. Enjoy!

(for some reason my phone split it in two separate videos)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Write up:

 

I arrived early to receive my “kit”: a tee, the little sign with my runner number and a belt with three detachable straps hanging from it. Each strap represented a life, which the zombies must take in order to “eat” the runners. Once a runner is out of lives he or she is allowed to finish the race, but is officially considered a living dead. Living dead may act as bait for the zombies, in order to help the runners.

 

We ran in groups of ten people that were supposed to remain together to the end of the race. I was partnered up with 6 parkour guys, a dude and his two daughters.

The first zombies were slow and clumsy so running past them was not hard. Further ahead the track was blocked with tires. When we got out of the tire obstacle, fast zombies came at us from the tree line and that was the point when I wished I had bought those Nanos… the worn, slick soles of my old running shoes made me slip on the wet grass and I fell on my face to the ground, where the zombies made quick work of my lives. Dang it!

I catched up with the rest of my group for the next obstacle: pallet wood hurdles. The parkour guys showed their vaulting skills over the hurdles while I safety-vaulted all of them. We waited for the dude and the girls and carried on.

 

A few zombies later we crawled under wire and reached the scariest zombie of the whole track, a bald traffic police officer. The makeup was great and the performance was better. Behind this guy was the obstacle I dreaded the most: the wall.

I was sure I wouldn't be able to climb an over 2m tall wall without help.

The traceurs flew over the wall while the zombified cop came at us.

I looked at the wall, then at the zombie and thought “what the hell, let’s do this”. I jumped, pulled myself up as hard as I could and before I knew it I was on the other side of the wall!

Thanks, bald zombie cop. The fear of you made me forget my fear of the wall. Moving on.

 

By that time we were walking rather than running. I wanted to run and so did one of the parkour guys, so we went ahead while the rest of the group rested.

We crossed some muddy spots, another wall with slots for the hands and feet and an inclined wall with ropes to aid in the ascent.

The last 2km were a dense bushy area with tall grass and very uneven ground. Zombies were on the hunt and some of them could run as well.

After a warped wall of sorts we found ourselves on the top of a hill, from where we could see the finish line. It was a steep descent and we had to be careful but we heard the zombies close by… they came out growling (second best zombies of the day) after us and we had no choice but to sprint in the direction of the finish line.

 

We exit the vegetation zone and found a closed gate between us and the finish line. A staff member was there cheering us up “c’mon last obstacle!”. My nimble partner jumped over the gate like it wasn’t even there. I climbed over it with less finesse, but still worked.

 

I got a ZOMBIE medal because I finished without lives, but still had a blast. I’m definitely running again next year and hopefully 2017 will find me in much better shape so I can survive the zombie apocalypse.

Best purchase ever. Well perhaps the car has a small edge there, but a solid second place :P

 

Today's WOD was a hard one.

  • 10 to 1 Power Cleans
  • 1 to 10 KB overhead press
  • 20 to 11 burpees

For the non-crossfiters that means that each round you progress from the startig number of reps of an exercise to the finishin number. As an example round one would be

-10 P Cleans

-1 KB OHP

-20 burpees

 

Round two 

-9 P Cleans

-2 KB OHP

-19 burpees

 

And so on. Tried to go with 12kg KB but it made my shoulders hurt. Can't complain, they have been behaving great since the injury so I gave them a break and used 9kg KB.

For the Cleans I went light. 30kg since I knew the burpees would obliterate what little endurance I've built through this year. The time cap was 25min.

I was 9OH presses and 11 burpees short of finishing on time, but I'm pleased with my performance and coach made a compliment on my clean technique. So happy WOD over all.

 

Lunch was beef leftovers and a handfull of cherry tomatoes. I was so hungry I forgot to take a picture but it was well within a standard medium size portion.

Great write up! Well done for getting over the wall. The undead are great motivators! Such a shame that your shoes caused your demise. Remember not to put those on when the real zombie's arrive.

That's a pretty cool workout. I think I'll steal the pattern and substitute in something else for the power cleans

 

I was thinking this too, but that's a lot of maths to do mid-workout. I'd probably be standing there counting my fingers while everyone else was beasting the WOD!

Video was good. I was kind of hoping Nare would pretend to be a zombie and jump out at the end :-)

That would have been lovely, but she had to teach a suplementary class to some of her students so she could not attend the race.

when the real zombies arrive I'll make sure I put on some sturdy boots.

 

What do you think I was doing? :P

 

Yesterday I did some weird movement and kind of twitched my lower back a lil' bit. It hurts and I feel like I'm back in early 2015 but, I also can tell that my body is significantly healtier and stronger, and thus more resilient. I can stand and walk and pet my dog without screaming like Mr. Orange. That said, it would be better not to engage in vigorous physical activity for a few days. After all, the challenge doesn't officially start until October the 30th.

 

Totally unrelated note:

Cleaning some old SD cards I found a project I wrote for politics class back in highschool. It was about contemporary far-right organizations. Guess it was an adolescent way of being "edgy"... Some of this organizations are well known like the british National Front, the spanish Phalanx or the greek Golden Dawn, but others are frankly bizarre. I mean, neo-nazi white supremacy groups in latin america? Give me a break. most of the population has indigenous origins! it's a living contradiction...

There is no predicting where this sort of dopeyness will break out. Chris Rock does a great routine where he talks about when life gets hard he starts looking over his shoulder, because a certain portion of the population will always seek to blame it on someone... not in their ethnic/cultural group. Let's put it that way.

don't know that particular routine, but judging from the rest of his work, I'm guessing it must be pretty good.

It was a lot of fun!

 

Wednesday I spent a variance. Had 2 pints of beer and 3 slices of pizza with my friends.

My back is much better and is healing way faster than it did the last time it got injured. Still, I won't be resuming my ususal CrossFit shedule until next week. Inspired by the latest video on Alan Thrall's youtube channel on working around injuries, I feel confident enough to try a few pullups today.

Yesterday I spent the afternoon studying and working on college stuff. Don't know how much time it was, but it wasn't any less than 3 hours.

 

I just finished reading "Don Segundo Sombra" by Ricardo Güiraldes and started "Homemade Muscle" by Anthony Arvanitakis. It's taking me a million years to read though a book lately because I read on my free time, which really not that much.

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity:

but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.
