So I’ve been having some mixed feelings about working out with my foot injury all week. By the end of the day, whether I’ve been working or traveling, or whatever, I’ve just been exhausted. I don’t know if it’s a result of working, traveling, healing, but I haven’t had any motivation to go in and gimp around and put myself at risk for further injury, which is why I never made it to Tuesday’s class (the day I got home) and also why I opted to skip Wednesday, too. I ended up doing meal prep Tues and Wed because I started The Whole30 all over again. Rather, a stricter version of my paleo diet, call it whatever you want. So.. Thursday I made it in. I made myself to, and of course it felt good, but I still felt bummed.
I hate having to modify, and I hate that I can’t run (I never thought I’d say that) that I can’t jump, or land, or fully extend, or jump rope.. a million things. I suppose I should look at all the things I can do and be sickeningly positive about it, but whatever.
So anyway, Thursday’s WOD.
2 Min Plank Hold (I did all of it, and it was hard, and I wasn’t even sore afterwards, which really sucks! Something that difficult should at least make your abs or sides hurt or something, but nope.)
max standing broadjump (skipped this one..)
max dead hang on pull up bar: 61 seconds. My hands hurt and felt like they were going to rip off.
15 min emom
Minute 1: max effort push press 95/65
Minute 2: handstand walk (30ft) I did a 30 sec ski erg instead.
Minute 3: 10 pistols. I did 15 air squats
Your score is the number of push press, I finished with 105, at the RX weight. I thought my shoulders would be wrecked but nope. Not at all. Typically I would’ve been hurting after something like this. Moving 65lbs 105 times in a narrow window of time usually causes soreness, but I can only attribute it to all the freaking supplements I’ve been taking to try and get my shit to heal faster. I’ll create a whole new post for that.. stay tuned.
No picture today, sorry. I was feeling sorry for myself.
I almost always feel like I’m making excuses when I have to modify my workouts. It’s hard to not feel like a failure, or to wish you could be “as good as” everyone else. It’s hard to not be envious of everyone who can walk normally on their own two perfect and amazing feet. But then I remind myself of all the things I CAN do, and how fortunate I am to be able to do all those things. That this is just a hiccup and soon it’ll all be a memory. And we’ll look back and laugh at ‘that one time Alicia broke her foot doing pull ups…’#checkinforcharity #checkinforsanity
