Handstand and Deliver

This is sort of what I looked like today
So I walked up to Sara to talk about today's warmup:

Handstand attempt (x3)
Tripod / Frog Stand (10 secs)
10 Ring Rows

Obviously with the handstand attempts I figured I would do pike pushups since there's no way I would be attempting handstands for who knows how long.  So I asked if the pikes are OK, and Sara immediately said "hands on the floor".  Before I knew it I was kicking up to 45 degrees, then on the second try...WHOA...holy shit I freaked out...I was upside down!! And then I panicked and sloppily flipped over.  But I DID IT.  Can't wait to get more comfortable doing it...seems just like the GHD situps and Forward Rolls and anything else that involves being inverted during the exercise.  Fear is the only inhibitor.  I'm used to dealing with that...man how cool would it be to not have to scale on the handstand pushups.  Crazy...

Three rounds for time of:
6 Muscle-Ups
30 Wallball shots, 20 pound ball
12 Handstand push-ups
135 pound Power clean, 15 reps

Time: 29:52

65 lbs. on the Power Cleans
6 Jumping Ring Dips + 6 Ring Rows in place of Muscle Ups
Pike Pushups for HSPU

Felt pretty damn good getting through another metcon.  Looks like bigtime snow tonight...I hope the first train gets to the city ahead of the curve...then again I probably should consider a shoveling WOD to make sure my wife can get out of the house after I leave...I guess that still leaves two days for me to get to CFNYC this week.  Damn I'm addicted...
