Last night I whacked my elbow in the change room before the WOD. Hurt a bit, but more of a pain was the fact my hand went kinda numb. Not overly comforting when heaving a bar overhead… Crappy pic, but I had this odd looking bump thing… My fish’s name is Dr. Tom. He was taking a look. (Please ignore my organized chaos in the background, k?)
Today’s workout was awesome 🙂 Redeemed myself after the double-unders sh*t show yesterday. I really need to get my sh*t together on this one. When the alternative to 50 double unders is 150 regular jump rope, seems enough incentive to learn… like now. I got home all pumped up and ready to spew a crapload of blog ramblings, but was in desperate need of a shower first.
A few years ago my chick and I got into the habit of going to the Toronto zoo fairly regularly. Great opportunity to hang out and take pictures together of all the animals 🙂 That’s not where I’m going with this… ever been to the zoo? Doesn’t even have to be the Toronto zoo, I’m sure they’re really all the same… Well, this morning when I got home from the box, the smell that seemed to be following me around reminded me of the gorilla enclosure at the zoo. It was pretty horrible, but what can I say?? I worked really hard…
Anyways, back to the workout details. Today we warmed up with 500m row, 15 toes-to-bar and 50 candlestick crunches. Google it. Crazy sh*t. Then the WOD was a 20 minute AMRAP of:
– 400m run
– 15 deadlifts (85lbs)
I killed it! Finished 7 rounds and felt awesome from start to finish. I love to run, so while a bunch of the others were whining about how every piece of todays WOD sucked, I was in my element for once. Cool down was another 1000m row and I left for home with a huge smile on my face 😀
