Don’t Be Scared

Felt like was a useless piece of shit at work this morning, so I got out in the garage just after noon to sweat.

Hybrid Push Only

  • 3×10 Strict Pull-ups
  • 3×15 Rack Chins
  • 3×10 Strict Wide Grip Pull-ups
  • 3×15 DB Curls (20-25-25#)
  • 3×20 Shoulder IYTs (CS purple)

The wide grip variation is really hard for me. Done with that stuff in about 38 minutes.

Today’s Performance Plus workout was burpee pull-ups and IYTs. I think I’m covered on those! Just for fun, I put burpees in my metcon.

Conditioning

6 Rounds

  • 10 Thrusters (95#)
  • 10 Burpees
  • 200m Run Ski Erg

I was dreading this since I came up with it last night. Several times this morning I even tried to convince myself I should adjust to something easier. I decided if I was that afraid of it, I should stick to it and grind away. It started raining as I was changing clothes and I’m delicate, so on the Ski Erg it was. 😀

Even during my rest between sets of the pull-up stuff I kept trying to think myself out of it. “Maybe I’ll just do it EMOM style.” Then I got to thinking 18 minutes may actually be a decent time. I knew one thing, I was going to do the thrusters unbroken today since I was alone and didn’t care much about my time.

Wasn’t hard at all to keep the thrusters to a set of 10 each round. Right into burpees, but they were of course slow. Was getting a pace of about 2:15/500m on the erg. Finished at 15:02 and realized it wasn’t as bad as I expected. Running would have definitely taken longer.
