good workout this morning…even though it sucked!

March 8, 2012

0630 crossfit workout
split snatch
45-65-85-95-105 (fail)

10 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) of:
10 wall ball shots w/ 20lbs ball
5 burpees
40 meter shuffle
8 & 2/3rds rounds

I felt good this morning. Even though I felt like I was going to die towards the end. This morning’s AMRAP was the type of workout I was hoping for yesterday. The split squats were a new movement for me. There was much debate on whether or not your knee should hit the ground. The final verdict was: deep lunge, knee hitting the ground equals no rep. Which makes sense since your knee on the ground stabilizes you and helps support the weight. I was complaining early on the AMRAP! Then I had a combination of not being able to catch my breath and something wrong with my throat interfering with swallowing. I tried my hardest to not to let it stop or slow me down. There was a heck of a lot of hands on my hips going on. I was able to workout with my former coach this morning, which was pretty cool. We were neck and neck for a good while. I was actually ahead of her, but she would catch me on the burpees. She didn’t have quite as far as a way down to the ground as I did! She is quick!

I had to contest my results at the end of the workout. There was about a half round to a full round’s difference between my former coach and I, when she finished just ahead of me. And I know she didn’t lap me. I don’t normally say anything when the board is off, but man, I felt wronged this morning. I wish I would have been keeping count…was the last thing on my mind. Then, I thought about it after I left and I only got credit for finishing the wall ball shots when I finished the burpees and started the run when time was called. Don’t want credit for anything I didn’t do, but damn sure want credit for what I did do! Might just need to start keeping track. I’ve already said I need to not worry about everyone else’s scores on the board; do I have to start not worrying about mine?

It’s nice to be home after that short business trip where I was confined to a vehicle for two days. I missed my wife and kids. I missed saying good night to my kids. I missed sleeping in my own bed. I missed the warmth of my wife’s body…even if she does push me away in her sleep. How did I make it through a five and a seven month deployment? I’ll never forget the conversations deep into the seven month deployment to Iraq where my wife would say she felt like she didn’t even know me anymore…
