Open Workout 15.3

Open Workout 15.3:
14min AMRAP:
7 Muscle Ups
50 Wall Balls
100 Double Unders
Total: 477reps (3 + 6 Muscle Ups)

Notes: Hit this at Crossfit Boynton Beach at Friday Night Lights.  Warmed up in the morning with Z1 and some mobility to make it easier to get going that night.  Hit some mobility and then did a couple muscle ups, a few wall balls, and 3 muscle ups before getting to work.  My goal going in was to get 4 rounds.  I calculated that to a 3:30 pace.  I hit the first round at that pace, but then everything slowed from there.  The wall balls were surprisingly tough and ended up sticking to sets of 10.  After the second round, my body temp was very high and I just couldn't get my heart rate down.  By the wall balls on the third round, I was having a hard time seeing straight and was in straight survival mode.  I am happy with my ability to push under the extreme conditions but it also leaves me scratching my head as to how I would have done if I even had a fan on me or at the most was in an air conditioned environment.  I had 5 minutes coming off the wall balls in the 4th round and just couldn't keep myself from doubling over.  Hit 6 muscle ups to finish out the workout.  This was on paper a great workout, but the heat exhaustion leaves me wanting a bit more.  Until next time.
