Today was one of those days when I just should have told my self, stop!
9.00 am Cape CrossFit WOD:
- 1, 2, 3….9, 10 Clean & Jerks @ 70 kg
- 1 Round of Cindy between each round of C&J, (5 pull ups, 10 push ups, 15 squats).
Total Time: 28’26 min
Already during the light warm up my entire upper arm area started screaming and I was really considering not doing this. Problem was I have been looking forward to this specific WOD for more than a month..
Decided to give it a try, my goal before today was sub 20 min, lol. Had to force my self in to gripping the barbell at every rep, every round of push ups was nothing but pure pain, and as said: today was just a day I should have made a smart deciscion and let it go. Probably got through the entire wod never getting over 80% effortwise, and every Cindy round was unbroken. Well, not so suprising considering the tempo though. After the wod the pain was ridicilous. Iced it for more then 20 minutes but still I could barely move my arms and I cursed my self for being this stupid over and over again.
On the positive side, my back didn’t hurt at all nor cramp up afterwards. I did get 50 pull ups, 100 push ups, 150 air squats and 55 reps of quite heavy clean & jerk done. However, under 20 min is really where I should be on a good day. Not ever gonna expect to get near the Spealer-freak, who did this in around 12 minutes though… 😉
