The other night over dinner, I was telling my husband about my cruddy/stressful day when his eyes dropped to about my chin and stayed there.
“What? What are you looking at? Is there something on my face?”
He shook his head and grinned. Later he told me he had been looking at my shoulders, which he says are more muscular.
I’m sure today’s WOD helped even more:
20 Dumbbell deadlifts (35#)
19 Box jumps
17 DB deadlifts
16 box jumps
My time: 16:40.
I used a green band for pullups and for the first time was able to do the first set without stopping — that’s 21!
I made sure to grab the Rx’d weight on the deadlifts, which were surprisingly exhausting. I knew my grip would give way, but I didn’t expect to feel that worn out from them.
I really need to swallow my fear of the box and just jump on the damn thing. It’s a new box that feels higher, but I’m never going to get better at the jumps if I don’t actually jump.
Still, I was pretty happy with how I did. My form felt consistent, and I got a second wind. Plus, I felt like I was going to puke, so I must have worked hard, right?
