WOD for 7-15-2009
First of all, this week has not gone exactly how I would have wanted it to. I missed Monday due to my doctor keeping me almost 3 hours over my scheduled shift. So, by the time I got off, I was exhausted and hungry. I know, no true reason to miss CrossFit, but I was starving and didn't think I could have given it my all. And then after work yesterday, I had to go out of town to watch my parents house and take care of the 4 dogs and all that fun junk.
So, today I went to back to my high school and did today's workout. I kinda modified it some due to not having a lighter bar to start out with. I wanted to do all 100, so here is how I broke my reps and sets down:
20 @ 45#
20 @ 50#
10 @ 50#
10 @ 50#
10 @ 55#
10 @ 55#
10 @ 60#
I would have much preferred to have started off on the 33# bar and worked my way up, but after my first set at 45#, I knew it was going to be a long workout. So, the 20 at 50#, I decided to just do sets of 10. Since I was working out by myself, I decided that after each set, I would do box steps on a taller box. So, I did 100 push presses and 100 box steps. Whew...what a workout!
Something positive that I learned today, was that my mental game is stronger than I thought. It would have been so easy to just not go and do it on my own. I could have stopped anytime I wanted. While I didn't do the WOD EXACTLY as it was written, I did it in a way that I could finish and be happy with my results. Not once did I think about quitting. I just kept thinking that I had to finish, and I did, but I did it on my terms. It felt great to be back lifting weights! Can't wait to get back to the box!
Diet has been pretty good. Had a good day yesterday, with only a little cheat of ice cream that was brought in by the hospitalist group. Marble Slab...yum!
Breakfast: egg white omelet, 6 almonds
Lunch: Chicken breast, salad, and sunflower seeds
