Aquafor is my friend

My calloused and ripped hand.  Ewww...I ripped one of the callouses on my left hand this morning.

I should have done a better job of managing my callouses, but thanks to some Aquafor (awesome stuff!), my hand doesn’t hurt anymore.

I haven’t ripped my hands in a while — over a year, I think — so I was surprised.   I hope I don’t have to do pull ups until it’s healed, but knowing my luck… well, you know.

Today was a benchmark day.  My FAVORITE benchmark day because it’s my FAVORITE benchmark WOD.  Hmmm…. wonder why.

AMRAP 20 minutes
5 pull ups
10 push ups
15 squats

Humor me as I pat myself on the back, OK?  Last time — 3 months ago — I finished 15 rounds + 5 pull ups + 1 push up with the blue band and push ups on my knees.

Drumroll, please……..

Today — 14 rounds + 5 pull ups + 1 push up with 2 purple bands (that’s lighter!) and push ups on my TOES.


I’m stronger.  Oh yeah.
