No drinking today on this glorious Cinco de Mayo! Today was the first day of sunshine all week.. it rained and rained and everyone in the area was miserable from cabin fever. Not sure how we ever endured living in North Carolina for those 13 long months! My god..
Anyway, it was BEAUTIFUL today and I was feeling pretty awesome when we woke up this morning. I knew there would be Open Gym, so I headed in around 10a, with the intentions of doing Fight Gone Bad, and hopefully not alone!
My previous score was 211, and that was from last year. Today I got 218. I had mis-counted and thought it was 238, because I added 10 by mistake to my last two rounds. Fortunately though, my two FGB buddies were right in sync with me, pretty much, so I was like yeah.. there’s no way I got 238. There’s no way I went faster than you guys on my reps! I wouldn’t have felt good about it had I not said anything.
Fight Gone Bad is:
1 min of work for each of the following movements (this is the order we did them in)
box jumps (20″)
push press (55lbs)
wall balls (16lb)
1 min of rest
(repeat 2 more times)
I had a massage at 1p, and was going to go back and do FGB again later on, but Tom, my coach, suggested against working out crazily after a massage. Considering I hadn’t done a WOD since LAST Friday, it was probably a good idea that I didn’t do it again. 🙂
|Me tonight. Feeling exceptionally satisfied with myself.|
I was thrilled with this picture tonight.. I was leaning on the counter, talking to Dave, and I looked over in the mirror to my right. I was pleasantly surprised that I wasn’t repulsed, or that I didn’t instantly shift into a position that I was comfortable with seeing. Instead, I was like, oh wow.. I have my arm squished into my side and it doesn’t look ginormous! (by my standards.) It was just really nice to look at myself and not contort into an unnatural position that I would’ve felt happier with. That doesnt happen very often (being happy with my appearance without posing..)
