Thrusters make the heart grow fonder
Scott & I had an unexpected date night last night when our neighbor babysitter said Hey I can sit tonite if you want — so we went out to a steakhouse. I had grilled chicken and a sweet potato and — I also had some of their fresh baked bread. Not sure what the heck is up with me. Seems every time I take a step forward – I take a step back. I know it’s only bread — but I know that it is going to make me feel like crap. Why do something if you know it will make you feel crappy? Who knows how the mind works — it seemed worth it at the time. And sure enough – I didn’t sleep well at all, I had some odd dreams and my stomach was a bit upset when I woke up this morning. Let’s see how the rest of the day goes —
My hands still hurt — from Saturday’s pull up practice. In a way I am proud of them- it’s a sign of hard work. I will conquer these kipping pull ups. The swing is down pat – now it’s timing. And Timing is something that has had the upper hand on me for a very long time — so practice makes better!
50 single jump rope
10 Pass Thrus
10 Good Mornings
10 Head Rotations
10 Hip Rotations
10 Cherry Pickers
7 65lb Thrusters
15 L Sit Pull ups
total: 7+ (i was halfway into the pull ups)
Notice the warm up — lots of hip and shoulder/head stretching. Those all are to prep for the WOD. There was only 1 guy today who could do the L Sit Pull up. It’s basically a dead hang p/up but you pike your lower half. Let’s make a dead hang even harder. I used a blue assistance band and was able to do them with the chin up grip. This was a super long WOD today — halfway through I was like man, we still have 10 mins!!!
As Coach Conan said to me one day – I know you love it when I hear you complain! I love that he ‘gets’ me!
