This was an absolute shit show. This WOD was to be done pyramid style. So, after you worked your way down the list to do the front squats, you’d move back up to the swings and work your way all the way back up to the double unders. The good news was, we’d only have to front squat once. The bad news was EVERYTHING ELSE.
Rx for women was 16kg and 95# (no rack, because of course not!). I Rxed. I didn’t even sub rowing for the 400m runs, which I pretty much always do because of my bum knee. But, when you’ve just finished rowing 60 goddamned calories, the absolute last thing you want to do is row more.
There was a 25 minute cap. I did not finish.
I made it as far as finishing the second/final 60 calorie row, and that was a wrap. I’ve never DNFed on a WOD, since joining this gym. And, I do not like it!
The September challenge has been very so-so for me. My eating has been *almost* the way I outlined, with me getting looser than I really should be, on the weekends. I did, however, order some meals from a paleo meal delivery service, which should be arriving tomorrow, and which should help me to reel things in. More on that to come.
Workouts have NOT been where they need to be. I’ve been averaging 2-3 a week, instead of the intended 4.
It’s a vicious cycle of being out late a few nights each week, because of evening screenings I have to go to for work– which also means I can’t work out after work. But then, see, I’m too tired to get up to work out in the mornings, because I was out late!
I’ve got to figure this out, because this is going to be my reality for the foreseeable future. I’m going to have late nights, and I’m going to have to learn to drag my ass out of bed to work out in the mornings, at least 3 times per week. More, if I don’t want to make up workouts on Saturdays and Sundays.
Anyway, the struggle continues. But, at least I don’t have to do any more fucking front squats today.
