I had decided to come in Sunday to get a little workout in, but decided I didn’t want to run, as I usually do on Sundays. I opted instead for the Ski Erg, which was actually great. I did 1000m on the ski erg in about 5 min. I don’t know if that’s great or horrible, but I figured it was about half the time that I’d run a mile in and 2/3rds of the distance, so I was good with that, haha (1600 meters in 11 min or 1000 m in 5 min.. hmm)
I also did my 50 GHD sit ups which I haven’t done in forever. I knew I’d be hurting but I wanted it. That soreness always makes me feel like I’m doing something worthwhile with my muscles, achieving something I didn’t currently have, attaining new strength, losing unwanted fat, shedding low self esteem, and making myself stronger all around. A lot of deep, stupid thoughts, but it’s true. When I’m sore, I feel more accomplished. (Sore to me does not mean “in pain” or “injured”.)
So yeah. I was sore for days from those GHD sit ups, but not like that one time. In fact, I’d say that today, almost 1 week later, I’m finally NOT sore from the GHD sit ups I did last Sunday. Jesus. Anyway, with all that being said, here’s what we did on Wednesday, 4/9.
Strength: 1RM Strict Press
WOD: 11 Min AMRAP
10 – BB Rollouts
6 – S2OH (135/95)
2 – Wall Walks
I got 105, again. I’m annoyed with my lack of progress, but it’s my own fault.
The WOD. BB means barbell, or evil wheels. This picture below is from almost a year ago, at the old gym.

So.. all abs. I was a little worried, but I was like whatevs. I ended up using my biceps and arms to compensate for the lack of strength in my core, so of course, after this WOD my arms hurt, in addition to my lower back and abs and wrists. Sweet.
I finished 3 rounds plus 9 reps. More than I had expected, so that’s cool. Wall walks suck.
