Pushing through sleep deprivation

Sleep deprivation is no bueno.

Seriously.  Too much to do.  Too little time.  Between work, the kids, the house, and now a tech conference (SXSW Interactive — yay!), I may have bitten off a bit more than I can chew.

It was the baby that kept me from sleeping much Wednesday night — sweet girl — and I was pretty bleary-eyed when I rolled into class Thursday morning.  I was glad the workout was a straight up bodyweight met-con.  Not that barbells didn’t make an appearance.

Front Squat

Results: 65-75-85-95-105

Zach said I didn’t go low enough in my squat.  Damn it.

4 rounds
200m run
25 push ups
15 toes-to-bar

There was a 10 minute cut off — I finished 3 full rounds, plus round 4’s run and 10 pushups.

I was happy with how this WOD went.  I felt fast on the runs and I did all of the push ups on my toes.  No — I didn’t get my toes to the bar, but I managed to swing my knees higher than I ever have — definitely higher than my previous knee raises.

I’m hoping to get a couple of runs in this weekend before heading off to the events at SXSWi, but I can honestly say that I’m more worried about eating clean.  I plan to enjoy a few drinks, and I’ll be surrounded by delicious looking food that I know will make me feel sick but for some reason tempts me anyway.

Ruh-roh.  Need to stay strong.  There’s nothing wrong with an indulgence as long as it’s worth it!
