I’m going to make this post brief because I’m not happy with how I did in this morning’s workout.
It’s been stewing in the back of my brain all day. I perceive my performance as a total lack of strength and nearly failure. I know the negativity does nothing to help me, but it really bugs me.
My back arched on the last rep of the 4th set and it tweaked a little, so I backed off on round 5. Annoying. I should be stronger. 65# should not be a struggle.
3 Deadlift (M 305#(?) / W 205#)
Completed 5 rounds + run+ deadlifts in 10min at 135#
I would have finished had I not had to take time to drop weight in the first round from 150# to 135#. After that first run, I can back and simply could NOT lift that bar off the ground. The run changed the game THAT MUCH.
Annoying. I should be stronger.
135# was pretty challenging for me. I made more noise lifting that bar than I did giving birth to Madeline. (Seriously. I was loud and embarrassing.) Still, why was that so hard if my max is 185#?
I’m trying to be patient, but it’s hard. I know that changes that I’m making don’t necessarily yield instant results. It’s better to see how things go over the long run. But it’s still frustrating.
It also doesn’t help that my body doesn’t feel completely awake in the morning. My awesome dermatologist (a fellow Crossfitter at Central FYI!) has me on anti-histamines at night among other remedies for a skin condition I just can’t seem to shake.
It sucks feeling like your body won’t wake up. On the other hand, if the treatment works, it will be well worth it.
SIGH. The sacrifices we make….
