I laid in bed for two hours trying to decide if I was going to go.. I had finally decided on “No.” as I made my coffee and sat down at the computer around 9a, and then I started to feel guilty.
WHY AM I FEELING GUILTY ABOUT NOT GOING??? I’m sore as shit, my quads feel like they’re about to explode, my feet hurt, I could’ve slept for another 3 hours… but yeah, I felt guilty. I told Russ I was gonna come in today, and to not show up would be going against my word; something I have a SERIOUS problem with.
So… at 9:15a, I changed my decision to “Yes.” We are going to the gym. Awesome. Around 9:30a I was pretty pumped and excited about my new decision, and was feeling good about it.
I got to the gym, saw everyone smiling, waving at me, and it felt so great. I love being a part of this amazing community! Tom gave me a disgusting, sweaty, wet and gross hug (which I happily returned the favor about 90 min later..) and I was just so pleased with my decision to go in today.
We ran a 400m, we played some dodgeball, it was great.
Then Justin wrote the WOD on the board.
10 rounds of Cindy
(5 pull ups, 10 push ups, 15 air squats)
10 rounds of Cindy
DOUBLE YOU TEE EFF. Holy fucking shit, are you serious?
Then we were told it was a Buddy WOD, and it was one partner works while the other rests. Okay fine. Amanda and I teamed up, which worked out really well. But at one point I remember thinking, good god, I just did Karen a few days ago, 150 weighted squats, essentially. 150 spring loaded 16lb squats/thrusters for time.. and here we are, 300 more squats in our faces.. oh god.. Can I leave? Is it too late?? Will they notice? Shit, my name’s already on the board. Oh mann.
Alright, let’s do this!
I did about 100 DUs, which I was REALLY excited about, (and our coach Derek was beaming! Since he’s the one who helped me perfect my form.) and then we finished the rest with singles. Then we alternated rounds of Cindy, and we walked more than half of that 800m run. Had to.
On the 2nd half, we cut down to 6 rounds of Cindy instead of 10. We were both spent, and we were both already very pleased with our accomplishments thus far.
We finished with 600 singles and our time was 36:02. Good lord.
My quads really hurt.
