Today’s workout was a bench workout and one of the tests for No Bread, a healthy eating lifestyle type contest that Craic does a couple of times per year. Jarrod asked me if I had a plan this morning, to which I said “No.” and he said “Well, I guess your plan was to just show up and that’s the most important.” I’m paraphrasing, I think that there was a “fuck yea” in there or something – but I was sleepy. I didn’t even set my alarm this morning, I just happened to wake up in time. Been a really shitty week emotionally, so I just haven’t been sleeping well, nor motivated to workout. But I woke up and I showed up to Craic. Boom.
3Rds For Time:
I scaled / modified my version of Helen. Tried a couple of practice swings with the 18# KB and it was way too light. Went conservative and went with the INT weight which was 26#. I think any heavier would have pulled my shoulder forward a bit too much, so I’m happy with the weight I chose. As mentioned 1000 times on this blog, I really hate running. Jarrod had us do a total of two 400m runs before the workout even started. They felt terrible. I went up to him before the workout and was like “Um, my runs are going to be REALLY slow – and this workout might take me like…more than 15 minutes” – but Jarrod was confident that wasn’t the case, especially because I was going light on the KB and doing ring rows instead of pull-ups.
He was right. And called me and another person working out today sandbaggers 🙂 Final time was 11:42. Runs were uncomfortable, but not terrible. So that’s an improvement, right?
