What: WHAT IS THE FIRST WORKOUT???
Here it is:
The first known WOD of the day is called “Lauriel” (this is the only workout the competitors will know ahead of time).
During her treatments after surgery, in her blog, Lauriel talks about the regimen of 5 days chemo, 23 days no chemo...
“I met with the neuro-oncologist who explained what would happen over the next year. During radiation, I would take oral chemotherapy drugs every day, for 6 weeks, even on days I did not receive radiation. After radiation concluded, I would take a 23 day break, and then start a regimen of 5 days of chemo, 23 days no chemo. From a CrossFit perspective, I look at this as “5 days on/23 days rest”. I did not know what I know now, that my chemo dose would increase each cycle until I hit the prescribed dose.”
So, with this in mind Todd came up with her own benchmark WOD relating to the “5 on/23 off” of 5 movements, 23 reps each.
