Well That Sucked…

I hit up my usual CrossFit class after work today and basically got my ass handed to me with today’s wod. Holy crap!! I knew it would suck when I saw 5 rounds but I didn’t expect to struggle SO much with it. I seriously felt out of shape. Which I know I am not.

SWOD
5 x 5 back squats
5 x 3 strict pull ups

I used 85 lbs for my squats. I felt wobbly and uncoordinated during my squats. I asked my coach to watch and he said my form was fine. He suggested that maybe I was dropping too fast to the bottom of my squat. I tried slowing it down and I did notice a difference.

WOD
5 rounds
Sprint
10 thrusters
10 burpees

Coach suggested I stick to push press after all the squats and I was ok with that. I wanted to do 45 lbs but he convinced me to start with 55 lbs and just drop down if I had to. We did the workout outside and it was nice to be out in the sun and there was a nice breeze.

On the first round I was dead tired. Everything hurt and I was gasping for breath. What? After one round? It sucked. I kept going and was telling myself whatever I am just doing 3 rounds then. Or I will just do 8 presses. Or I will just drop the weight next round. But I didn’t do any of those things. I did all the rounds. And all the reps. And all at 55lbs.

Yep it sucked and I felt wiped after. But I finished it. ALL of it. And then went on to do max plank holds three times even getting a full minute one in there.

I was so unhappy with it I decided I should take a selfie. Isn’t that what anyone would do??

The point is it’s my own fault. I have been really really slacking with my nutrition and I need to get my shit together or I will continue to feel like garbage during my workouts. My legs will feel like lead when I run and I won’t feel strong and confident with my lifts. I also need to get reacquainted with my foam roller. And my chiropractor. I haven’t been in weeks and my muscles are angry. I use the excuse that I am too busy. But that’s just it. It’s an excuse. I need to take control of my situation and correct it. Hopefully this time I stick with it.

Monday done and in the books. Is it too early to start the weekend countdown?

How does nutrition affect your workouts?

I need some clean meal ideas. Help!
