Who are these Super Humans?

Todays W.O.D.

New England Sectional Event 1

Run 800 meters

30 Snatches (115/75)

Run 800 meters

I guess it is my turn to suck.  I ran the first 800m, kind of.  I'm not running four days per week like I used to so my running stamina (i.e., lung endurance) is down.  So yeah, that took me way too long.  Then, I snatched 45# for 30 reps.  Well, I don't know how many actually were a snatch but I think I'm beginning to feel the form.  That's the thing with me and forms...I have to feel them instead of over think them.  My lungs were f-ing with me, as usual, so I rowed the second 800m.  I started at like a 2:06 pace and ended somewhere between 2:25 and 2:30.  This felt good but I beat myself up so immediately embraced the guilt of not running the second 800m.  However, when I stopped by the grocery store on the way home and noticed my still beat red face and ears, I was thankful that I didn't hurt myself with the run.  I have this fear of experiencing an asthma attack when I'm not near my trainer or others that I am working out with.  I guess I need to work on that.

The results:  16 minutes and 13 seconds at 45# snatches and running the first 800m while rowing the last 800m.  

I feel really slow and inadequate right now.

  1. Not everyday can be your best day, but as long as your there giving it your all then I'm proud of you. There are days I dominate a WOD and other days where that WOD dominates me. As long as we try and learn from it, it's all worth it!
