You can’t get much done in Life
if you only Work on days when you Feel Good.
I completed last night’s WOD at 2030, dribbling sweat in to the floor after a genuinely tough epic. Getting back to my room, I should have had plenty of caseine and whey protein, with a little complex carbs, for recovery overnight. What I actually had was 3 slices of pastrami and a pint of water. So, when I struggled to get to sleep, and then only managed 6 hours, it was my own fault for not heeding my own advice and subsequently suffering in this morning’s WOD, just 10 hrs after I left the box.
Early AM at CF Watford
I was coaching this morning but due to the presence of the shadowing assistant coach, the capability of the athletes, and relative lack of complexity in the movements, I decided to take part too. I also had meetings in London all day and couldn’t guarantee getting back in time for the evening session.
- 4 x 6 Single Arm Row (Kettlebell)
- Superset with 30m KB Waiter Carry
24 / 28 / 28 / 28kg Row, 16kg Waiter Carry
Not much to say other than that I could have gone for the 32kg. Not sure why I didn’t.
AMRAP 12, 45kg
- 10 x Front Rack Lunges
- 8 x Front Squats
- 6 x Shoulder to Overhead
- 4 x Power Clean
Total: 5 Rounds + 18
I didn’t start well, completing the first 2 Rounds with 12 Lunges and 10 Squats!! After realising my mistake, I tried to catch up to my aim of 6 Rounds. However, I simply had very little left in the legs after last night. I also lost it in the head a bit due to it being early morning, cold and having slept poorly. All movements were unbroken but I paused too long between them, when I took pauses. On 4 Rounds, I completed the squats, STOH and power cleans in 1 but then even longer pauses.
Still, not every day is PR day and this is my 4th session in 3 days and I have another tomorrow morning before the weekend.
Currently, pleased with how this is going.
