Yesterday's ugliness and today's "Onion Skin"...

So I have to admit, after Sunday's max effort, I've not been feeling very frisky. I really felt like that max took a lot out of me. I've never felt that spent after a max before so it's an odd feeling, but I actually DNF'ed on a workout on Monday. That doesn't ever happen. But regardless, I still went, but only got two rounds of yesterday's ugliness. It went like this

3 Rounds for time
21 K2E
21 KB swings
21 Rope pull-ups (sort of like a dead hang on a rope)
21 Push ups
21 Box jumps
21 Good mornings
150 M walking lunges

I only got through 2 rounds in 30 minutes, but I did those 2 rounds as Rx'd. I didn't sub abmats or regular chins so it def took me awhile. Eesh. I had to get to work, so I couldn't stick around for the third round, but truthfully, I was smoked.
The shoulders were fried.

Well, then of course, today was more shoulder work. I still wasn't feeling really frisky, but of course I went in today. Turkey and pie? Oh come on, I gotta CF before eating all that! Anyhoo, today was something we've done before. It looked a little something like this...

5 rounds of
Max strict press in 2:30
Max chins in 2:30

My first few rounds were crap. Totally. I fell off the bar due to grip issues and just didn't feel good. I used 60lbs for the strict which I think was the heaviest on the day, but I don't really care about that. I just know that today should have felt better and it didn't. I finished with 59 stricts and 60 chins, which is still a lot of work but still, I feel like it def should have been better. But then again that may just be my perfectionist personality talking. :P

I'm going to try to get in tomorrow, but you know what I'm doing right now? Oh that's right... having adult bevies after the INSANEO day that I had today. Big shout out to Cara who put up with the craziness that was traffic in the NOVA area today to get me with 10 minutes to spare to the dealership to pick up my baby. She looks good as new and I can't tell you how glad I am to have her back.

As an aside, if you happen to be in the NOVA area and need to rent a car, I would highly recommend the Enterprise off site, but attached to Reagan. They were great. Cheap rates, open late, and very polite to me. I was in and out in 1:30 flat tonight. It was a good experience. I would however, not recommend wrecking your car.

I'm going to have a few more adult bevies... I can't say I've earned them, my work ethic is lacking this week, but I do need them. Amen!

That Monday WOD looks intense. I'd love to try that one sometime.

Glad to hear you got your wheels back, mine was in the shop today and it drove me nuts not having a car for one day never mind weeks.
