I am feeling resentful! I thought my dino-chow and 9-hours-a-night sleep habit were going to ensure I didn’t get sick this year.
My head has been filled with goo for a week now, and this morning, I dragged my sorry ass out of bed for CrossFit Women because I just couldn’t bear to not workout again. I had a really hard time falling asleep last night – I’m just not appropriately tired when I don’t get to do my training.
I was excited about this morning’s workout because it was a nice combo of running and throwing around heavy things. My expectations were way, WAY better than my performance.
2 rounds for time:
15 DB deadlift, 45# DBs
15 DB push press, 25# DBs
I teamed up Erin and felt great for the first, maybe, 200m of the run. Then the wheezing started. I pep-talked myself the whole time: “Easy. Turn over your feet. Breathe… you can pass her. Stay on your pace. Move your feet.”
When we got back from our 800m jaunt, Crystal yelled, “3:43” which is probably the fastest I’ve ever covered 800m. I felt pretty good about that and hit the first set of deadlifts… not too shabby. The 400m run was agony. The outbound 200m, I was huffing like a freakin’ freight train, and on the return 200m, I realized I had to go to the bathroom. Badly.
My body was, like, “Whoa! Hey! Awesome! We’re moving again.” so I had a pit stop in the MIDDLE OF THE WOD. Who does that?!
My bathroom time kinda killed my spirit, so my first set of push press were lackluster, and I decided to scale back the remaining two runs to 400m each.
I finished in, like, 18:something.
We ended the workout with alternating sets of knees-to-elbows (which I HATE) and T-rotation pushups (which I LOVE). Felt great to get my chest to the deck again. Oh! And the forced rest has finally given my shoulder a chance to heal, so there’s a silver lining. The crowd goes… meh.
Overall: I’m pleased with the weights. Disappointed about the run. Glad I went to workout. Predict tomorrow will be another rest day. Eager to eat bacon bourbon brownies.
Is it Thanksgiving yet?!
