All for a dog....and I do not Care!

So......after everything today.....I decided to take a half day at work and spend time with the wife and baby. It was great. I told myself I was going to relax and take the day off. Sparty would not like that! He would want to RUN.....RUN....and RUN!
I was sent a challenge by The Lion to beat him in a few WODs, one had a lot of running and new it was perfect for Sparty. He told me if I beat his scores I could name this WOD. Well, I had a goal to do this WOD and name it Sparticus (it is unofficially Sparticus because I need the ok from him first).
Chels and I decided to make it a ritual every 9/29 to do this WOD in his honor. It was KILLER. After starting I thought there was no way that I would finish, let alone beat his time. As i got going I got better and ultimately finished with a score of 254 (The Lion got 234)


AMRAP 30 Min (Each Rd is 5 Min with no rest between).
Each 5 Min Rd starts with an 800M Run, then with the remaining 5 min you complete AMRAP (As Many Reps/Rds As Possible) for the exercise listed in that Rd.
Rd 1 Chest 2 Bar Pull ups
Rd 2 HSPU (don't know how you got 50!)
Rd 3 Thrusters w Oly Bar (45#)
Rd 4 SDHP w Oly bar
Rd 5 Box Jumps 20'
Rd 6 Burpees

Total 254 (score for each Rd listed up top)

Sparty would be happy and I will continue to do this whenever I feel the need. Thanks Steve (The Lion) for this WOD! It helped me and my wife.....she did it to but instead just ran 3 miles because she figured it would be a constant run anyway. She wants to do it with me until she can eventually get a couple of reps in. I know she will! This was a worthy WOD and felt like a train smashed me a few times.
