The past several days have not been all lace and doilies here in Brummerland. Other than my completely normal physical feelings of being uncomfortable, I’ve also been incredibly distracted. It’s hard to focus on anything that requires thinking, and it’s a victory when I remember something important.
It’s also much easier for me to use how I feel as an excuse for eating ice cream or skipping workouts. Sometimes that happens. But for the past 3 days, I’ve tried really hard to stick with a regular workout routine.
AMRAP 15 min
9 KB deadlift (32 kg) (used 60#)
8 pullups (subbed ring rows)
8 ring dips
9 hang power cleans at 65# (used 55#)
Results: 5 rounds + 9 deadlifts + 8 ring rows + 8 ring dips
20 push press 65# (subbed 20# dumbbells to do this inside)
20 knees-to-elbows (subbed side sit ups)
7 KB swings (M 2 pood / W 1.5 pood) (used 14kg)
5 burpees (subbed sprawls)
Extra work: 4 rounds of Tabata pushups
I was tempted to use the 1 pood, but I’ve been very cautious about anything that could strain my back. My compromise was to drop it down to 14kg, but not 12kg, because that’s just too light.
Today I’ll find out what happens next with baby — planned surgery or wait until nature signals it’s time. I’m thinking that’s what’s been distracting me. Ya think?
