I woke up this morning and completely on autopilot got myself to the box. It wasn’t until I pulled in the parking lot that I actually considered the fact that I would have to workout once I got there.
That said, I’m at a solid 80% today. Other than some congestion and not quite being able to take a deep breath without hacking up beaks and feet, I have no complaints.
And since we established last week that I’m an addict, I’m back at Crossfit.
I wore my snappy new HTFU shirt that reads “Squatting is like sex: It doesn’t count unless you go deep enough.” It got rave reviews. And someone earned a new nickname this morning by saying, “yeah, and quarter squats are like playing ‘just the tip.’” From here on out, her name is just-the-tip. You’re welcome.
Oh right, I’m supposed to be posting about the workout. So, it took about 3 minutes into the warm up for me to realize that I would still be taking it easy today.
Warm Up: The usual. Seriously considered dying or vomiting during the warm up lap. But there was an audience. Can’t do either with people watching.
SWOD: Deadlift 5×5
Warm up: RDL 10@33lbs
Sweat was pouring off of me and I had a little case of the spins. Yup, 100 was all I was eeking out today and I was ok with that. I was just glad to be back in the box doing work.
WOD: A bastard version of “Cindy”
2 minutes Cindy
1 minute rest
3 minutes Cindy
2 minutes rest
4 minutes Cindy
Score: 171 with RR
I really love Cindy, but today I really hated this workout. Ok so, that’s not entirely true, but this was really hard. Again with the sweating and the dizzy. I actually ended up laying down during the rests. I had two of my favorite dudes on either side of me though, and they both gave me encouragement. In the end, it was a game of just keep moving.
My push ups are getting better, but by the end those were what was really killing me. I was making grunty sex noises and I couldn’t help it, but at least I didn’t scale them. Yay me.
