Crossfit WOD: HSPU, toes to ring and ball cleans

Today's Crossfit WOD was an interesting one:

20 minute AMRAP
5 pirallette handstand pushups
10 toes to rings
15 medicine ball cleans

Mods: I can't do HSPU, let alone on pirallettes! So, I modified the HSPU by placing my toes on a 24" box and angling down for HSPU. I tried this technique once before, but this is the first time I performed this motion in a workout. Prior, I did knees on box which is easier. So...I am making progress. I was able to do the toes to rings but with a big swing, and I was on rings in front of a bunch of weights which was distracting when I hit. The medicine ball cleans were fun - and I did those with a 16# ball - the prescribed weight for females.

My results: 5 rounds + HSPU + toes to rings + 2 cleans

For my extra work today, I am: wearing a 20# weight vest around the house for a few hours while cleaning house, walking around, sitting here writing posts. Also planned for the day is more jump roping (to beat up my feet) and some 24" box jumps.
