I took 2 ibuprofen last night. Uhm, I haven’t taken any type of pain relief for as long as I can remember, and certainly well over a year ago. My neck still hurt, I had a knot in my back, and my right thumb and wrist ached.
That was yesterday. Today most of the pain and aching has subsided. Yeah! Last night I thought I’d rest today. This morning I awakened ready to work out. Yeah!
I worked out at 10:45 and completed almost all of today’s programmed WOD.
Row 1k (I ran out of time. Dammit.)
50 pushups = 1:38
50 pull-ups = 2:09
50 air squats = :46
50 Abmat sit-ups = 1:16
50 double unders = :27
50 wall ball shots (20) = 2:26
50 slam balls (30) = 1:27
50 Abmat back extensions = :40
10 rope climbs = 2:48
I completed double unders, air squats, sit-ups, back extensions, and slam balls (yes, slam balls) unbroken.
I completed pull-ups as kipping non-butterfly (so as to protect wrist) in reps of 25, 10, 5, 4, 3, & 3. I completed pushups in reps of no more than 15 and no less than 4 and wall ball shots in reps of 15 and then sets of 5 reps. The wall ball never hit the ground, and I didn’t miss a rep.
Back to the slam balls. As I was completing I thought, “I can do 30 of these. No problem. Wait, the slam ball weighs 30 pounds. I have to do 50 reps!”
I completed all rope climbs with just two pulls, yo. Just. Two. Pulls. Yo.
All sessions at CFS were very well0-attended today. Yay! We have some truly awesome members! Paul K. from CFD visited today, and it was nice seeing a familiar face. Good job with kipping pull-ups, Paul!
It’s been almost a year since my position was eliminated from my previous employer — and I couldn’t be happier with my decision to open CFS!
