WOD for 5-13-2009
5 Rounds of:
10 Ball Slam to Box Jump (holding the ball)
Was not in the proper midset for Crossfit yesterday. Hence my horrible performance. Lifting weights in 90% mental. And I didn't have the mindset. Front Squat, form was crap. Lets just be honest. I knew at 95# that when I went up to 100#, it wasn't going to be good. I should have listened to that internal voice and stopped, but no, I am stubborn, and did 100#. My back rounded, and it just wasn't good. I did get 3 at 100#, but it was the worst form anyone has ever seen.
Working sets were:
The MetCon....pistols were done using a green band. Ball Slams, used the 10# ball, and the small box. Couldn't see the box, so I did box steps. Again, the mental aspect of Crossfit wasn't there. Time was slow, enough said
Here is what I am wondering, is it better to go to CrossFit and have a bad day, or just not go at all? I missed the day before due to a friend having a personal crisis, and needing to be there for a friend. So, that is an added stress in my life, and being woken up all during the night by my friend's cell phone going off. I am wondering if I did more harm than good? I can honestly not think of one positive thing that I did in the workout yesterday. It was just a bad day all around.
