Today I got into another battle within my head. Part of the WOD was box jump-overs. I could do it fine on the tiny box. I could even do it no problems on the tiny box with weight plates stacked up making it higher than the box I needed to clear for the WOD. But even after an intense stare-down, I could NOT get my head to commit to even trying the bigger box. Like at all. There must have been smoke coming out of my ears I was so frustrated.
My pull-ups are not getting better. I practice them religiously 2-3 times a week after the WOD. I have had days where I can get through with a thinner band helping me out, but some days they go the opposite way too. I’m not giving up 😉 I just am ready to see some progress… please?
Ok, done complaining. I try to be a “glass half full” kind of person, but I have my days. Who doesn’t? Day off from work today. Like, not even one of the days I’m off from my full-time job, but working at the part-time one. Today is legit. Thank gawd today was not a rest day! Gave me something to look forward to 🙂 The WOD was a full one, with many parts:
warm-up in pairs
A runs up the hill twice B jumping jacks ~ then switch
A runs up the hill twice B push-ups ~ then switch
Every 30 seconds for 3 minutes complete – 2 burpees, 2 box jumps
AMRAP in 10 Minutes:
6- Chest-to-Bar Pull-Ups green band
12- Box Jump Overs (20”) scaled this business – jump up, jump down on other side. total chicken today.
Rest 1 Minute then:
AMRAP (Reps) in 2 minutes:
Hand Release Push-Ups completed 48. then died. almost.
I didn’t cry today. Tuesday we just weird. There’s no crying in baseball… Back to our heavy lifting tomorrow 😀 Yee! Better eat lots today…
Oh! i found exactly what I want for Christmas! Except there’s no chance I’ll be able to wait that long….
What?! I can make “noodles” out of sweet potato? Brilliant 😀 Thanks to Juli B at paleOMG.com I found THIS site! I was Inspiralized. Pretty amazing and totally delicious sounding… check it out! After playing my usual game of “catch-up” including some cooking, cleaning and laundry… I decided to go out for a little more double unders practice. It was gorgeous out today, so why not 😉 Believe it or not, it was actually a successful effort 🙂
** Note… the tattoo symbolizes “strength & energy”. If you can read whatever language it is in and it actually means “you fool”, please keep that information to yourself 😉 In my mind it’s a simple reminder. These two things relate to one of my biggest fears… that MS will strip me of them one day. I won’t go down without a fight :p
