Three mile run, work, hot power yoga, a 1000 meter swim and a CrossFit workout from hell to round the day off. I never planned my Tuesday to look like this: I needed to run so I ran. I haven’t been to yoga in a while so I went. And I really need more swim time. CrossFit was just to see Richard coach the class
My next 140.6 is at the end of October. My weakest sport is swim so now is the time I really need to build up my base. I joined a 24 Hour Fitness last week just to make good use out of their pool. I did 1000 meters of remembering what swimming laps feels like!
On my drive to CrossFit I received some sad news. I didn’t have time to process it- much less let out a good cry- because I had to rush into the WOD. The workout was so intense, so hard and so long. Basically it was the worst for a foggy mind. I turned my sadness into frustration over the workout. I let out my fair share of grunts and I doubt my face looked pleasant.
Meet tonight’s nightmare:
10 Wall Ball
15 Push Press
10 Ball Slam
5 Mr. Spectaculars
10 Squat Jump
1000m 20lb. Ball Chase
Mr. Spectacular: Walk hands out to a push-up, walk hands back to feet, squat clean thruster with dumbbells.
Ball Chase: Two-person team: one throws a 20 pound D-ball while the other sprints to the ball and throws it. Aka hell.
Overall I am glad I did the workout. But I am pooped!
How do you react to bad news? Do you prefer to work out your feelings or do you prefer to skip the workout?
