I suppose my Strongman Cert would account for Crossfit Day 159 but whatever. I’ll leave it how it is.
I really really really didn’t want to go today.. I told myself all day long that I didn’t want to go, I wasn’t going to go, I wouldn’t go. It wasn’t happening.
I talked myself into it. I felt guilty for giving up on the shit I should be better at. I should be better at running. I should be better at burpees. I should be better at this shit! Why cherry pick? Just go. If I didn’t know what it was ahead of time, I would’ve gone. So I went. I sucked it up and went, damn it!
It really wasn’t that big of a deal, looking back on it now. Just 4 times around the block, no big deal, right? I fucking did it. My mile time SUCKS, I might add.. took me 11 minutes, and I even ran/jogged the majority of the time. I was super proud of myself (sounds so cheesy) for running twice around the block without stopping. I used to not be able to do that once.. I stopped to walk 3 separate times, and each time I walked about the length of the block or less.
My lungs didn’t really hurt. This was my biggest thing before with running, was my lungs burning. This time, my calves started hurting, but whichever, it really wasn’t that bad. I’m just proud that I went and did it.
The actual WOD was the following:
Run 1 mile
remaining time do deadlifts (I came in at 11min and Russ had me do 10 deadlifts)
and then 5 min break
and then 5 min max double unders. I didn’t skimp out and do singles, and I ended up getting 4 double unders in a row, several times! Pretty proud of that, too.
