My time was 7:43. Fun workout. Kettlebells are still one of my favorite workout tools.

I did the 12 Days (our version) on Wednesday and was very slow! 34:57 I think. There was a lot of stopping due to the crowded room and wanting to help other people. It’s a fun workout. My left palm had barely healed from a week earlier when it tore during an AMRAP WOD that had many sets of 5 pull-ups. I feel like a fool when my hands tear. The least I could do is remember to file them to try to prevent it. Some people wear gloves for pull-ups, and in my opinion that’s a silly combination of fussy and wimpy, but since I occasionally tear my palm I can’t rationally argue against it. For sure we could all use a stronger grip.
