Help… drowning.

Day 14/260 Today was one of those workouts that I tell myself count the most. You know the very often ones that we just don’t want to do. I’m drowning under a combination of family responsibilities, work and a very large quite difficult EU law assignment. The last thing I actually wanted to do was take time away from my desk to workout. But I’m damn well commited to this both by agreement and mentally and I’m not letting anyone down. So of course I went, often when I don’t feel like it I have an amazing workout. Sadly today was not one of those, I just plodded through. Of course I don’t regret it, is there ever a workout that is regrettable (aside from any that cause injury!). I did however manage to leave with an amazing free cake courtesy of the fabulous Pineapple cafe which made going out worthwhile! Now back to this pile of paper.

I hate Thrusters

Today was day 11 of 260 CrossFit workouts, and it contained both burpees and thrusters. I have kinda made my peace with burpees, I am not terribly fast or probably terribly graceful but I can tick along quite nicely with burpees, barely muttering under my breath as I go. But thrusters, ugh I’d rather wax something…anything! Even a bikini wax would be better than thrusters. I’m sure I will eventually make peace with them as well at some point but I doubt that will be any time soon. Oh and while I was doing pull up progressions as my coach calls it (essentially I hang from a bar in a giant elastic band) I actually hauled myself up to chest to bar height, a whole twice! I know, go me!
