They're calling it "the Gauntlet"

I put two classes through this on Sunday, and it looked like hell. So, when it came time to decide what to do today, I figured "what the hell, I haven't done a big WOD in a while," and jumped in. Surprisingly, Joe D, Brandon, Andre and John all signed on as well.

In 30 minutes...
Run 1 mile
50 KB Swings (2P)
50 Burpees
In remaining time, perform AMRAP
5 pullups
10 pushups
15 squats

Score is number of rounds completed.

7 rounds + 3 pull-ups RX
(Splits: mile 6:16, KB 4:20, burpees 5:50, round 1-2:10, round 2-2:37, round 3-2:30, round 4-1:35, round 5-1:44, round 6-1:37, round 7-1:08)

That was satisfyingly horrible. For only being 30 minutes, it lasted forEVER, and the Cindy rounds were brutal. It's nice to see I generally sped up on them (really pushed that last round hard) rather than the other way around, but (as always) it was the pushups that really held me back.
