Sometimes, the dialogue that runs along through my head while I’m killing the WOD (or getting killed by the WOD) can actually be quite humorous after the fact. Sometimes there’s a lot of “you GOT this!!” moments, but other times I’m filled with “suck it UP princess!!”. Today was a bit of both :p AND… today I got a new nickname. A few weeks ago, I became known by my last name to Coach Dave, but today I was “Mighty Mouse” 🙂 During the warm-up, we kept loading weight on the bar until we found a decent 1-rep-max thruster. To complete 3 rounds of :-s Round 2 I failed, so Coach said strip off some weight and go again. Eff that business. I rested a minute and killed the third round with the same weight 🙂 It felt great. Then the real work started. The plan was to scale down to 20 pull-ups instead of 30, but it didn’t feel very “mighty” so 30 I did. With the green band for the first 18 and green and blue for the last 12, but still 30 🙂 Today, my dialogue changed a little. “Suck it UP Mighty Mouse!!!”
Monday November 25
50- Thrusters, #45/#35
Finished in 9:35 🙂 almost Rx’d this one… except for the banded pull-ups. One day, my friends… The thrusters felt great with the bar stripped down, or at least until about rep 25. Then I had a moment of “half way!! yee!! oh WAIT! Still half to go!” Haha
p.s…. 1 month ’till Christmas. 😀 I’m of the few retail nuts who still enjoys the Holidays!
