I woke up this morning with a great thought: I have way more self-control than I have been showing of late. I like chocolate (I am not some kind of animal) – but not as much as I have been eating it. Also, it really isn’t Paleo and I need to go Cavewoman strong for a little bit so that I can really get back to the body I never had.
The Filthy 50 is a benchmark WOD in crossfit. I love it – but in my current state there was no way I was going to be able to do it even though it was today’s WOD. Instead, I got to do the Gimpy 50:
50 step ups
50 jumping pullups (“jumping” with weight on right leg)
50 sitting kettlebell swings (I was sitting on the side edge of a weight bench and swinging the kettlebell under it)
50 box pass-throughs (this was its own kind of hell where I was balanced between 2 20inch boxes swinging my straight legs from back to front to back as 1 rep)
50 knees to elbow (where I twisted my knee slightly – though quite painfully – with only about 11 to go. I kept going.)
50 presses (some of them were pushed but only with right leg)
50 reverse back extensions
50 calorie row
50 single leg jump rope
I finished in 25:06, or 23:06, or 27:06 or 67:06. I wish I remembered. I was too tired to remember. In fact I didn’t even remember the workout, I had to look at it written down.
In good news my MRI is scheduled way sooner than I expected it to be.
