You know it is going to be one of those days when this is the text message you get at 7:45 am.
PS - this is Tara:
|Post-StoneWay Resolution Revolution. She had much more energy than me as she was the heat prior. My legs were still shaking and I was deciding on throwing up or not.|
This week has been the worst CrossFit week in a while. #1) I've been getting over a cold that just won't quit. Pretty sure I've got a modern day version of the black lung. #2) We have done two benchmark workouts and I had my first competition class. I can literally barely move.
First off, on Monday was our first competition WOD. Well.. due to the black lung, I didn't actually do the workout. But I watched my teammates do it, so it was practically almost the same thing. AND I did practice the first steps of muscle ups with them. Wednesday was Christine -- #totallyfuckingbrutal. I finished in 14:27 with 160 lbs. I was exactly six seconds faster than the last time. Whatever -- I'll take it. It sucked but as I've been told, a PR is a PR. Then, Thursday was Valentine's Day. I'd rather do Christine 5 times than deal with Valentine's Day (okay... that's probably a lie. Please don't actually suggest that to our trainers) -- do not get me started on all the ways that I hate that stupid holiday. Even when I've been in love - it's been atrocious. And I did the special VDay workout. Today, seven minutes of burpees. I did 81. Not exactly impressive - but I didn't throw up, so there's what.
Considering I will be rocking an awesome red wine hangover at tomorrow's workout - I am so looking forward to Sunday as my day off. I never knew how important a recovery day was until I tied four WODs together - every muscle in my body is vehemently against me at this moment. I have a three day weekend (cheers for banking holidays!!!) and am hoping to get some cooking in. I've been crazy busy the last couple of weeks (or sick-- never forget sick) and haven't gotten to try the stockpile of recipes I've been hoarding. Stay tuned for at least one awesome recipe.
