Decided today to give the immediately-post-WOD post a shot. When I leave the box, I’m all pumped up and have lots to ramble about so this could be a crazy one.
I knew they were calling for a 4-5 day run of COLD days in Southern Ontario… this morning lives up to that. By the time I had my car scraped off to head to the box, my pre-WOD greens drink had frozen itself into a popsicle. Had to use a fork to break it up! Thankfully Coach Dave’s threats yesterday that we would be outside today were reconsidered with the lung shatteringly low temps. Want a sure sign that today I will be showering at HOME after the WOD, not at the box?
Gym towel, frozen solid. That would do it.
Still fighting to shake this cold or whatever and my lung capacity is that of a pack a day smoker. Part 1 of today’s WOD was killer! My rowing felt great, kept my split under 2:00 for the first 2 rounds and under 2:05 for round 3. But the wallballs were brutal. I couldn’t get enough air into my lungs at times, but I didn’t quit. Our team of 3 finished in 10:32 🙂 Part 2 was wicked. Like, in a good way. Although, I went way too light on the loading. Decided to keep things light, keep moving fast and make it through a respectable number of rounds. Granted, accomplished that, but had Coach Dave not put a time cap, I might have been there for an hour.
As for the Zone diet, I’ve officially made it through my first week 🙂 and with 2 weeks until vacation, I have no intention of stopping. I’m getting a better system for food prep in relation to the blocks. Last night I made a batch of turkey spaghetti sauce with zucchini “noodles” that was incredibly awesome. It hurt my heart a little to have to weigh out my sauce portion, but it’s worth it. This morning I tried on my board shorts and they almost fit again.
