16th August -Loser!

I hate it when I fail at something, don’t we all I guess.

Training today with Chris I am going to start by getting down the met con,or at least my attempt.

Chris’s suggestion for today was Annie, a benchmark crossfit wod of double unders and sit ups.

50,40,30,20,10 of each move alternating.

It should take sub 10 minutes to complete, but after that fluke of a wod the other week I always suck big time at double unders.

I was prepared to give it a go.

Sucking big time doesn’t even come close.

I was a total loser and by 12 minutes and still not having completed 50.

I dashed the rope to the corner of the room and threw my toys out of the pram!

Chris did try to motivate me by telling me to bloody well get on with it but seeing him flying through while I kept whipping every inch of my legs and arms looking more like someone tangled in the jump rope rather then actually achieving any reps, was enough for one day.

At one point Chris even told me to stop being a spoilt brat, which is fair play. I need someone to be tough on me but where I don’t mind working on my weakness’s I can’t stand working through a wod with them. I feel set up for failure.

So what have I learnt from this.

I need to practice more double unders!

It wasn’t a completely failed session as I did continue the 8’s wave of my juggernaut program.

Really I should have more time between sessions but after such a hectic wk previously I only just got to training yesterday.

Yesterday was …..

Bench press and back squat.

5 sets and 8 reps each set – weight was set at 65% of my working max.

I squeezed in 5 sets of 3 pull ups and some stretching.

Today was……

Over head press and dead lift

5 sets and 8 reps each set – weight was set at 65% of my working max.

Again I got my pull ups in whoop! And some stretches.
