I’m skipping my workout tonight.
It’s been a tough 3 weeks for weekday workouts. Tonight I opted to rest and get to bed early, even though I’m awake and dying to spend some time outside.
But I know I have a WOD in the morning and my day starts super early on those days. It will be another long one, and I’m already sleep deprived.
No sense making it worse.
My quads are protesting the WOD I did yesterday morning. So are my shoulders. And I have a nice bruise on my right shoulder and some scrapes on my forearms. I’m damn proud of those marks, because I feel like I upped the ante a bit and pushed myself.
1 Front squat (M 135# / W 95#)
1 Ring Dip
2/2, 3/3, 4/4… 10/10
Time: 13:24 @ 80# and red (middle) band for ring dips
I tried 75# and I knew I could do a little more, so I added another 5# to the bar. That was good. It made it really challenging. On rounds 4 and 5, it was getting heavy. By round 6, I was working REALLY hard. And I’m so proud of using the band. It’s the first time I’ve used one, and it made it a lot harder. I definitely had most of my weight on my arms.
I was one of the last in my class to finish. At one point Jeff teased me that I had my “game face on.” I must look pretty serious during the workouts.
Wish someone would snap a photo — it’d be funny to see.
