Tabata your *ss off...

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.

Tabata Sellout
:20 of work :10 of rest
Record all reps
Our exercises went like this
Rest 1:00
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

Dude, I've been racking my brain trying to think of words that I've "invented..."

Clue me in Sherlock!

Katie said...

I do believe that it was the "Heavy Met-con Ninjutsu" that made me start to giggle...

Sean said...

Haha! Ninjutsu isn't a made-up word there, Webster!

Katie said...

Wow... I feel a bit sheepish... ****baaaaaa****

You shouldn't have told me... I thought you were cool for making up your own words... you just lost your coolness points... ;)

Katie said...

And ps... I can't believe you just sent me to Wikipedia! :P Rick Rolled is in Wikipedia for Pete's sake... :P

Sean said...

I was going to include some really geek & nerdy links that would've exposed my true nature but opted not to include them.

BTW, "Cool Points" cannot be depleted or lost.

AND I don't like your tone, missy! :D

Katie said...

In Katieland (ie the world since I'm the Queen of the world) cool points can indeed be taken away... as well as given back... but only if you're nice to me... :)

And as for my tone...

"Whatever! I'll do what I want! I'm grown!" ;)
