Your body gets tired. You get sore. Your old injuries sometimes rear their ugly head. You wake up wondering how you are going to manage to get through the day using only your t-rex arms. But your body repairs itself and as long as you listen to it, your body will recover. Sometimes that recovery takes longer than you think.
|Sweatbands do nothing to make you less tired, unfortunately.|
|I really am.|
1) When I got out of bed on Monday morning, every single joint from my shoulders down popped.
2) DTM heard me getting out of bed Monday morning, observed my bent over body trying to straighten up, and said "Well, you are turning 30 soon." If I could have reached my cane faster, I would have beaten him with it.
3) Later that week, when trying the new method of teaching kipping pull ups, I had a hard time getting going because I was so stiff. Judd actually asked me what was wrong and if I was broken. Sadly, nothing on me hurt that day, I just couldn't move.
4) My hips crack when I getup from sitting down. Every. Single. Time.
5) This might be the clincher: I started listening to WTOP, the news channel, on the radio because I couldn't stand any of the music being played on any of the other channels. That is when I became truly concerned about my "condition."
I am not sure why all of a sudden I am having a hard time getting moving. I am blaming it on the cold weather. Yep. That is my story and I am sticking to it.
It still doesn't explain WTOP.
Anyway, I managed to drag this decrepit body through a few WODs this week.
Tuesday's was fun:
21 Power Cleans (135/95)
15 Power Cleans
9 Power Cleans
As prescribed, I finished in 7:23. I love Power Cleans.
Friday's was fun too. Mostly because it involved Front Squats.
Front Squats 3-3-3--all at 165. Not too shabby.
30 G2O (95/65)
30 Jumping Ring Dips
Finished as prescribe in 5:58. That was rough.
Here's hoping to a more mobile week!
