Tough Morning

5 Rounds for time of:

15 Dumbbell push press (Men 45 lb dumbbells, Women 30 lb dumbbells)
30 Medicine ball cleans (Men 20 lb ball, Women 14 lb ball)

My time: 22:13, w/ 20 lb dumbbells

The med ball cleans ate me up. My form was iffy on several - not standing back up all the way before going into the next clean. I have to watch that, and get better at these. Some of them I felt really good about my form. After the WOD I realized I coulda'/shoulda'/woulda' gone with the prescribed 30 lb dumbbells. I've been doing way too much underestimating myself these days.

Today was one of those "head game" days. First, I was sleepy, and secondly I was mopey because my husband is out of town for a while. I know, boo hoo, right? Then I did that whole underestimating myself and scaling down thing. And then mid-way through the 2nd round I contemplated quitting. WTF? I don't quit. It's just not something I do. So, I had to brush aside all those thoughts and all those stupid emotions and suck it up and just push through it.

Tomorrow, I will have a way better attitude and I will have only positive thoughts!

  1. Maybe you're just being careful about your back? It's good to know you could have gone heavier and remember that for next time but seems like you're also scaling back to take care of yourself, which is good, right? Either way, you're doing great at learning both and balancing intensity and form.
