Even though my time isn’t very impressive, this was a good receipt for me! I’ve been resting for two days and taken a lot of good care of my shoulder. Today I did mobility and iced it in the morning and I’ve basically spent every night lying on the painball from hell. What is so good about this is that even though it still is very stiff, it didn’t hurt during or swell afterward the workout. Icing as we speak, so hopefully I won’t experience any setbacks tomorrow.
As for the WOD, I am pretty satisfied with how I gamed it. WB’s was a disaster in the beginning with me missing 6 or 7 reps(!) out of the first 25 just out of pure inexperience, my technique sucked! Got it straight in the end and was not taxed when I got to the triplet. Even though I should be at least a minute faster on the entire wod, I am happy with my slow pacing. I knew I had more to give all the time but kept it back to make sure I didn’t hit any wall. May sound like a chicken to you, but for me this is good stuff right now. Only thing I’m not happy with is the last T2B’s witch I broke very unecessarily at 10 reps, could have shaved some time there. Of course I was tired in the end, but as said I should be able to go faster all in all.
For the clean, won’t use excuses so let’s just state that I did safety lifts on purpose to be sure I got them…
Anyway, how could I not be expecting a decent result after such a perfect day loading up to the wod? Mobility in the morning, followed by a super nice breakfast in Muizenberg with Jobst and his family (thanks a lot guys!), my very first visit to the beautiful Nordhook Beach, and then not to forget, the 1kg of ribs that gave me enough energy for the workout!
Awsome day all in all, now it’s time for some meaningless DVD action, (is there any such by the way?), and some hours of pain on the ball.
I also wanna do a very special shout out to my very special and wonderful sister, Amanda, that has her birthday today. Would give a whole lot to be there with you right now, in my heart I always am!
