I don’t know if it’s the heat or what but I just am out of it. I think life in general is just stressful and it takes a toll. I’m not going to bed when I should because of the Olympics, yes it’s a valid excuse! And I’m dragging in the morning. AND I really sucked at the BOOM BOX today.
Skill/Strength: Split Jerk
We worked on form and technique today with only pvc and the bar. Working on these things are never a bad thing. It really helps to go through the motions and really get the little things worked out. The tiniest movements are crucial to having a successful lift. Now I just need OLY shoes because Lift Big, Eat Big told me so (HINT, HINT, WINK, WINK)!
MetCon: 10 rounds of 12 lunges, 6 burpees
1. My legs are smoked from sprints and Death by Front Squats
2. I’m tired
3. The burpees were not the normal, fall to ground, get up, jump up and clap hands over head. Instead it was fall to ground, get up and jump up on bumper plate. I didn’t think this was any big deal but for some reason I let it get to me mentally.
4. I sucked
5. Time 9:59, Thank goodness I made it under 10 minutes.
That’s it in a nutshell. I hate being Debbie Downer but it’s how I feel today. I can fake it till I make it and I think I am doing JUST that by getting my butt up at 4:30 am! I just need to feel less blah. I’m thinking it’s just a phase, because I recall a few months ago I was sounding pretty much the same. Then I started feeling super awesome and now I’m back to not feeling as super. SIGH! I’m hoping you faithful readers stick with me and don’t get burned out on my crybaby self.
Keep your heads up (yes that’s for me) and keep on keepin’ on. BE AWESOME!
(NOTE: I’ve made a similar statement before but I figure I need to make it every now and then so you all don’t think I’m a more of a loonball than I already am. Yes these are petty things I whine about compared to what goes on in the whole universe and I know I’m fortunate that I have good health and a great family, job, etc. I am not ungrateful for the things I am blessed with. In turn I know we all have these feelings when living under our own rocks. I just express them openly. Please know this is an outlet and inside peek to my life. Hopefully relatable to some as well. Heheh maybe more than a peek sometimes. And you don’t really want to know what goes on in my world. Maybe some of you do, but I’m not here to share all my stories!)
