I bailed this morning. Why?
1) kidney issues. The headache and stomach crankiness from this morning went to turbo drive kidney pain by lunch. I’m currently patchworking old antibiotics (Kids, don’t try this at home.) and the magical orange pills to get me through until I go see the dr. tomorrow. Fun times.
and the second reason?
tire flipping at 5:35 am…yikes.
- Tire flips
- Tire hammer hits
- Waking lunges
- Hill runs
- Hill bear crawls
- Stone ground to shoulder
- Wall balls
- Log flips
This is eerily similar, except for the wheelbarrow full of people.
And when I watch that movie, I’m always thinking “I would rather do the rocky workout than the russian tech workout”. I had my chance this morning, and I blew it. Sitting here at 8:20 pm, I wish I had done it. I wish I had tried. I wish I could proudly wear the shirt that reads “better than yesterday”. So basically, I feel like crap because I didn’t try the stupid workout. No..I’m stupid. Not the workout.
So, as my father says, “live and learn”. I had no real good reason to skip. I could have at least gone and if I felt sick, backed off. But I could have shown up.
Tomorrow’s WOD has been posted and it’s ugly but it a good way. I need the squats. The IT band was cranky yesterday for my short interval run.
24 front squats
48 pull ups
One thing I’ve learned is that I RARELY regret going to workout, especially a crossfit workout. I’m going to pack my bags now and get some sleep. Tuesday wasn’t kind, but it couldn’t do much damage. 🙂
