Soooo, I can finally feel my arms again, well or rather, I could always FEEL my arms, they were just in an immense ammount of pain. :P But suffice to say that after Trevor, my arms have finally recovered. So, today I got into CFOT and hit a WOD. Today we did.... dun dun dun... TABATA. Ugh. If there is one thing I hate, it's Tabata. I've mentioned, I know I have, several times that I SUCK at push-ups. I don't know what it is. I just can't do them fast. So, seeing Tabata come up today, I was not a happy camper. Not to mention, I was also in a bit of a craptastic mood because before I went to CF I had a bit of a spill. Not only am I still covered in bruises from my incident 3 weeks ago with the plyo box, I am now covered in welts and bruises because I fell UP the stairs. No no, you read that right, I fell UP the stairs. I thought I had forgotten something in my room and so I went to run up the stairs, and my foot slipped off the stairs and I fell into the wrought iron railing beside my stairs. Ow ow ow ow freakin' ow. That was not a good way to start my day. However, today, was different than normal Tabata.
If you're not familiar with the idea of tabata-ing, allow me to break it down.
Tabata :20 of work :10 of rest
Complete 8 rounds per exercise (whatever they may be)
Record your lowest score
Soooo if your 8 rounds go like 'dis 8 8 8 8 9 8 4 8 - Your tabata score is only 4. Boo.
But today was a Tabata sellout. This means, you don't record your lowest score, you just count them all up, but it's still the same work wise.
:20 of work :10 of rest
Record all reps
Our exercises went like this
4:00 row for calories (WTF? EEEEEEWWWWW!)
My efforts weren't really all that bad, well except for the pushups. My numbers today looked like this.
I really should have done more push-ups and rowed more, but crap, I Tabata-ed my arse off! I had no legs! Just like Lt. Dan. I had no legs! :P It's hard to row when you don't have any legs.... :P
