Yesterday was a rough one. I debated doing this workout Rx’d or not and I’m really glad I talked to Casey and we decided I should do the scaled at 75 reps.
The pull ups were hard from the beginning because #1 I forgot my gloves and #2 the pull up bar was ridiculously sticky and yucky so it hurt and grossed me out at the same time so they took me a long time. I did 20 right off the bat and then did the rest in sets of 10 and sometimes 5.
Push ups started to get rough at about 30. I was really having a hard time keeping my core tight and pulling my thighs up off the ground with my chest. It ended up looking more like a worm than a push up. About 5 total were done on my knees at various points during the set.
Sit ups were okay. Hard. But not as hard as I thought. Although…I started getting a little sick to my stomach about halfway through…(reminder of whatever workout I didn’t finish). It was really hard to get those last 40 or so done.
I was so relieved to get to the squats because, of all the things in this workout, those are my strongest skill. I busted through the squats in just over a minute. My goal was to finish under 18 minutes and I finished in 18:01 (dangit!)
Even still, this is a tremendous improvement over my time from November. November my time was 18:36 (I think?????) and I did 65 reps of everything instead of 75. So…35 seconds less, plus 40 reps…I’ll take it! 🙂
