Talk About BLOWING My WOD…
It Was A Messy Scene
I was ALL OVER the place…but how did that happen?
Could I NOT control myself?
Alright, alright…today’s workout started off AMAZING…then I shat the bed. It was one of those interval/lactate training workouts. Basically, you’ll want to puke your guts out after a round or two if done properly.
Here’s what we had in store today:
10 Push presses (95#75#…went Rx babyyyy)
21 pull ups
200m sprint (100%)
rest 6 minutes
5 motherfuckin rounds
Are You SHITTIN Me?
Yes, and boy did I not expect what I was getting myself into.
For the first round, I tore shit up…not gonna lie. The 10 push presses were smooth as butter, 21 pull ups were butterfly heaven, and that 200m sprint…I made Forrest Gump (post-leg braces!) look slow as shit.
All Positive Mindset Stuff Aside
Okay, I’m all about having a positive mindset. You know all that stuff that’d make a Tony Robbins fan cream their pants? But in this case, I know my body and its limits, especially with the asthma still affecting me.
Shit was getting bad with my wheezing during the round 1 sprint. I sounded like fuckin Thomas The Tank Engine.
I gave that first round my all, and I knew hitting that level of intensity for the remaining 4 rounds would be me in some dangerous territory. As much as I wanted to go “balls to the wall”, taking care of my asthma and overall health comes first.
You just need to see the bigger picture here.
My 4 rounds after that were somewhere in between 2:18 and 2:32 each. Coach said to only do as many pull ups possible in 30 seconds if you can’t do them unbroken, so I had a range of 11-16.
Initially, I was really disappointed with the rest of my rounds, as I couldn’t do them in an ALL OUT sprint. Then I chatted it up with the owner on my way out, and it turns out things were all good. Instead of BLOWING my WOD, I did everything as expected.
We were supposed to go 100%. Oh…you know…as hard as #mattchansboner (oh The WODFather…). So we were expected to have a drop in time per round, rather than a consistent trend.
Also, the rest between rounds was purposely designed not to be enough for a near 100% recovery. GENIUS, I tell ya!
Now Even Though Today’s WOD Drained My Fluids…
…dehydrating me and whatnot, I’m SO PUMPED for tomorrow.
MY PINK JUMP ROPE ARRIVES!!!
Oh, and we have double unders too. YEAH BUDDYYYYYYY!
