Here’s what I posted on FB.
A whole lot of awesome with a heaping side of awful today. Holy Moly, that was a tough WOD!
5 Rounds for Time
2 200m runs
20 KB swings at 55lbs
20 pull ups
2 200m runs
20 OH plate lunges at 25lbs
20 plate facing burpees
Reps split however you like.
I partnered with Vin, which was great! If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have kept going. I would’ve stopped. All the signs of heat exhaustion were there. I was dizzy, had chills, but I felt like I was going to let my partner down if I stopped. Hell, even when I slowed down I felt I was letting him down!
Sucks because we were the last team to finish. 🙁 I hate being last. It took us 41 minutes or so to finish this one.
I got home and stripped down, made my BCAA drink, and took a glutamine. Then I sat at my desk, just kinda numb and shaky and all like WTF. I felt like I had just done 2 days’ worth of competing. I was drained, lethargic, tired, hot, cold, miserable, shaky.

Of course… I hadn’t eaten anything. BUT I NEVER EAT BEFORE I WORK OUT! I had my coffee, and that was it. As usual! I didn’t think it would affect me like this, but it did.
Dave got home and looked at me and was like, holy shit are you okay? We opted for a nice carb-filled meal at Pei Wei. I said fuck it, I’m eating rice. I need carbs. I had brown rice with my orange peel chicken (light sauce) and my energy slowly came back. It was amazing how quickly I recovered after eating some carbs.
The first few weeks or so I did really well with Carb Nite, even though my first couple weeks I was miserable on the actual Carb NIGHT. The last couple weeks, or however long it’s been, have been trying. I have NOT been eating enough, I have not been getting the calories or nutrients my body has craved for fuel. I have been listening to myself and eating them when I feel it’s necessary, and with the workload and hours I’ve been putting in lately, it’s felt necessary. Not in excess, but like, a few bites of rice, or a couple pieces of dried fruit. I wonder how my body will react to it on the scales.
And it sucks that here I am, stuck at 210-211, because I don’t want to trade pounds for strength. 🙁
