12 x Pull-ups (30/15lbs)
Row 750m
9 x Thrusters (155/105lbs)
9 x Pull-ups (30/15lbs)

Notes: Athletes need to take their time and warm-up for Thrusters/Pull-ups through progressive loads (similar to the methods used to prepare for heavy sets during % based days). The Weighted Pull-ups are done with body armor representing 30/15lbs respectively for male/female athletes, the armor stays on for the duration of this Viking nightmare.
If you are suffering through this slay-fest today feel free to return at 9am on Saturday to thank Mint and his posse of groomsmen for requesting such a sado-masochistic WOD... He's about to get married Saturday night and all this guy wants is a extra potent dose of CrossFitting pain. Epic win.

"Viking Fran" sucked, but not as much as marriage. Congrats Mint.

I'm a little resentful for being punished because Mint wants to get married. He's only saved from a beating because it would have come up at some point anyway.

OK -- so that really sucked. A little shoulder pain today so I did dumbbells instead of using the bar.

Proof the man has no concept of time.

But, congratulations to Mint and soon to be Mrs. Mint!!!

Time's relative, Bert. This is a concept you'll have more respect for once you make it all the way through puberty.
