Especially when life decides to be real and painful. The title of today’s blog was supposed to be NICE but NOT so Easy. As it turns out it’s not so NICE either. Let me just say my heart is sad today. I know that here on this blog I share my silly little journey in fitness with CrossFit and Paleo but today I ask for prayer. Prayers are needed as part of my family has to deal with hard times. These hard times do nothing but re-engage all my sadness that I still have for my Mom. Geesh it sucks. And then I feel oh so selfish because that’s all I now think about – how much I need/want my mom still and I can’t have her. When really I should be focused on the ones hurting more than me. I’m not good at sharing hurting feelings and real sadness. So I sit here and ask for peace and comfort as we wait and see. Thank you.
I debated if I wanted to blog about my workout and I wasn’t going at first but in order to just get my mind somewhere else I decided I would recap the BOOM morning. So here goes it:
Skill/Strength: Handstand Shoulder Touches
I had NO clue what this meant, then Coach showed us. Get into a Handstand, with wall support and then proceed to try and touch your shoulder with your hand. Say what?!? Haha, I know it sounds insane. The idea is to shift all your weight to one side, I suppose to build strenght, balance? With Coach holding my feet, I could manage to get a few but without support I’m not so ready. The goal was to go for 5 minutes, 30 sec on, 30 sec off, going back and forth from left to right side. Well since I was unable to be proficient at the movement I got scaled to rocking back and forth on hands. I don’t really ever try to walk on my hands so this movement was weird and hard to get used to. By the last round I think I had a good feel for it but I still wasn’t great.
MetCon: 5 x 10yd sprint, 3 x 20yd sprint, 2 x 40yd sprint. Then TABATA of Pushups, Superman Rocks and Hollow Rocks. That wasn’t the original plan, TABATA but Coach gave us the change up. The T-WORD, TABATA! booooo! The Sprints were a nice change of pace, compared to the RUNS we call SPRINTS, hehehe, so yes *coughgrantcough* this was a much needed lighter day. Now back to TABATA. 20 seconds on 10 seconds off for 8 rounds. Your score is the lowest rep count that you get. We only counted Push Ups and woooo they hurt. So I started off what seemed strong with 13 but I dwindled fast. Kept my last rounds at 7 Push Ups so my score is 7. We didn’t count the Superman Rocks or Hollow Rocks and thank goodness because I lost count fast.
There you have it. Another craptastic day. Here’s to REALLY hoping that this week gets a little better. My apologies for the lame-O writing. Be AWESOME!
