Today was a really rough WOD. It just was. The challenge was to your body moving when your mind is screaming, “You have GOT to be kidding me!!”
I put up my first 65lb thruster. In fact, I did seven of them. Eight if you count the warm up one, which I would like to count. So there, I did eight 65lb thrusters. I had never done over 45 lbs on that before, so that was very cool. I am really trying to get prepared for the Open, so I am pushing as hard as I can.
Rx’d that part.
The next part…well…burpees and kettle bell swings. I could not get the 35lb kettle bell over my head. But I kept moving more than I have in the past. And I did not throw up. That was amazing.
I will take whatever improvement I can get.
And I am grateful for my workout buddy who promised that she would not leave me behind. She didn’t. I was less than 25 seconds behind her.
So I am chugging along trying to make a little progress each day…and praying that the first WOD of the Open does not include thrusters.
That would be terrible.
But today turned out to be pretty awesome.
