You know you’re getting old when it takes twice as long to look half as good…
Luckily enough, I still feel like I’m in my early 20’s, so let’s keep it like that ok?
10 am, WOD, Tapering for Fittest in Cape Town!
A. Butterfly Pull Ups, 3*15
3 min active rest between sets
B. 4 * 25 Speed Double Unders, (30s):
12s, 15, 11, 11
C. 3 * 10 Speed Burpees, (90s) :
21s, 20, 19, 19
First time with kipping PU’s in like a month, felt surprisingly good! Now, if I had waited one more hour, I would have known what the Second Event of the FiCT is made of, (see further down), and would probably have done fewer reps. Don’t think it will effect to much though.
DU’s felt really great, burpees not so great. Can’t even do a proper push up with my left side, but Heureka(!), if I do the burpee falling down to my right and basically just touching with the right side of the chest it’s actually working quite fast and doesn’t hurt too much!
For the competition event now being released, I can’t complain: ”Within 7 minutes: establish 5RM Deadlift and add three best sets of Pull Ups to your total score!”
I have my plan pretty clear and if I don’t mess up I think my pull ups should give me an advantage over most guys here. That said, nothing is done until it’s done…
So, what do one do when turning 30? Well, as said, all the focus is on Saturday right now. Up early, yoga on my favorite rock, training my self and others, some wonderful needling in the neck, doing a class and a couple of great Basics Courses and soon, after 0,5kg of grass fed beef, I’m going to bed. Couldn’t wish for more, and I rather celebrate any day of life when the timing is right than doing it just cause my calender tell me to.
But, even though I keep pretending it’s just another day, (while looking in the mirror for grey hairs and having trouble remembering what I did just a few hours ago), I do appreciate everybody that has reminded me of just how old I actually am today.
On a serious note, a BIG thank you! 🙂
