I’m forever exhausted lately. My brain is having a really hard time getting back into the swing of having to wake up early, get out the door quickly, battle traffic, find parking, and absorb information all day again, now that the semester has begun. The break was just long enough to settle into a lazy daily routine and now it’s GO GO GO again and it’s wearing me out!!! I think that partially contributes to today’s WOD. I am not 100% happy with my performance, but I just have to let it go and acknowledge that I’m tired and trying to settle into this new routine! I will not let it defeat me!!!
- Jerk 3-3-3-3: 85-90(f on 3rd rep)-85-87.5-87.5. Oof. 85lbs felt so damn heavy this week, after last week’s singles where I hit 95lbs! I don’t get it. I feel like I was just getting my form dialed in and my explosive dip/drive at its peak when it was time to start getting ready for the WOD. Wompwomp.
WOD for Rounds+Reps: 7+0
10 Minute AMRAP of:
- 6 Pistols: Assisted, holding onto a ring. Level I.
- 6 Pull-ups: Unassisted. Rx.
- 6 Wallballs: 14lbs to 9ft. -Rx. Supposed to be to 10ft but not every one of mine hit 10ft.
Man, this was rough. The pull-ups were easy, and I did 4-1-1 for most rounds, sometimes going 3-2-1, and I think I even did 5-1 for one of the first few. I focused on really kicking my legs to get a big kip and pushing away from the bar at the top to swing through nicely. They felt great. My hands are a little sore, but no tears, so that’s good. Pistols are defeating for me, because I just can’t get them, and I also feel like it’s difficult to not accidentally fall back on too much assistance once I get tired. I need to work out a goal timeframe to get them unassisted by, and work towards it. It’s something I can do on my own without equipment, so there’s no excuse for not working on them a little bit each day. They’re just such a difficult and weird movement! And the wallballs. They were rough. I kept getting too far away from the wall and missing the contact at the top, which also probably took away from getting the 10ft mark most reps. Bah. My shoulders are mush now. Friday will be a better day! Onwards and upwards. File today in the #justshowup category; at least I got in there.
