5 rounds for time
10 pullups (l-sit, strict, or negatives...i did negs and bad ones at that)
15 strict press (55lb)
20 abmat situps
Oh and this was the alternate workout!
It is days like today that really make you question why you do what you do. Today was clearly a brutal mental battle for me. I wanted to give up, quit, and after round 1 just wanted to high tail it out of the gym. But I didn't. And I'm not sure why I didn't do that either. Embarrassment probably.
Why the hell do I hang from a pullup bar, ready to burst into tears at 5:30am. Why do I feel it necessary to push heavy weights over my head when my wrist feels like it is about to break and my arms are as wobbly as a newborn puppy's legs? Admittedly, today's WOD tested my weakest movements. Admittedly, I did not sleep well at all last night. Admittedly, I miss my husband so bad it hurts every second of every day. This all has a lot to do with it, but...that still doesn't answer why I do this day in and day out.
My pullup situation deteriorates by the week to the point where I am now perfectly happy saying that I can do 1 kipping pullup without feeling the need to do anymore....except when days like today roll around and everyone else is just getting up there over the bar effortlessly (yes, even Christine with her purple band gets up there!). Since I did Murph back on July 3rd (100 pullups) they just haven't been the same and I'm at a complete loss for how to get the strength to do a strict and the form to do a kip without ripping my shoulder out of place.
I thought I did this for fun and to help keep my sanity...but now I have to wonder. More later.
