So tonight was really rough. I’ve been in Vegas for a week and so I haven’t been working out and tonight it really showed. It was to the point that I was angry with what my body was and wasn’t doing for me. Ugh.
It just goes to show you’ve got to keep up with workouts to keep moving forward. I’ve hit a plateau with my weight loss too and so I hope to get back on track and drop some more weight. Of course the last month I’ve had 2 vacations, each a week long, so that means not sticking to paleo too.
Anywhoo, here is today’s workout:
- 5RM Deadlift - I worked on form more than anything so I only used 45 pounds
- 20 thrusters (8 pound dumbbells)
- 20 pull-ups
- 1 minute rest
- 3 rounds for time
The goal was to use less weight so you could 1 set each round. Yeah. Tough. I was only able to do it the first round before I started to tire out and had to split the 20 reps into 2 or 3 sets. On the final round of thrusters I was moving slow and when I finally got to the pull-ups I could only do sets of 3 at a time.
My leg that was in the band was shaking so bad that I could barely hold myself and eventually freaked me out when it shot out in front of me and I thought I was going to fall off the bar. At that point I was cursing loudly, breathing heavily and not caring about my time. I just wanted to be done.
The hubby was yelling encouragement to me and cheering me on and I would’ve given up had he not done that. Between every “Oh sh..” he yelled back “you got it, do 2 and shake it off”. In the end I didn’t even check my time because I didn’t even care. It was that bad. So there.
First day back after a week off = super crappy WOD. The coach came over and laughed and said to me “gotta love Vegas”. He saw how much I struggled LOL. Next week is my birthday and he asked if I’d be there to workout and I said yes. He said they do special stuff for birthday girls, LOL, should I be scared?
