Double Unders — Making some progress!
I love those days when you just aren’t feeling your best and contemplated not going to your workout but you do and you have end up having a breakthrough! They come when you least expect it!

I am determined to not scale when DU’s show up on the board. I mentally just have to forget that I will come in DFL and realize that it’s because I am getting better. So the breakthrough? I was able to string 6+ DUs together! That is the most I have gotten EVER and boy I was winded. But the feeling of satisfaction I got from knowing that I was indeed improving was just the success I needed today.
I started regularly with CrossFit Impavidus at the beginning of February and the progress I have made in the almost 4 months since then is really amazing. DUs, Kipping Pull Ups, Hand Stands, CartWheels, Knees to Elbows, Deadlilfts… Goes to show you that sometimes we all need to shake things up, make some changes even when you have fears and doubts about it.
A few observations — I was really tired after Round 1 and that’s when the DU’s started to string together. I think because I was so tired – I let go, relaxed a bit — and there you go. It’s something about not being able to be in control. I am going to try this theory out with pull ups too. I get so tired that I even thinking about what to do is challenging and that’s when they technique takes over — muscle memory kicks in.
Yesterday, at work – our HR department hosted a catered breakfast for us all. I took the fruit, eggs, bacon — all paleo. They did have home made biscuits so I made an exception and had one– I love this restaurant’s biscuits. I didn’t get sick or anything but what I noticed was that last night, I was restless and woke up a few times and then during the warmup this morning — I didn’t have as much energy to push through the pull ups like I normally do. I have no proof that it’s because of the wheat/gluten I had yesterday, but it had me wondering — what do you think?
