I was introduced to a new phrase by Tim tonight,
Apparently I get a little tipsy once the WOD starts.
3-2-1 Go!…and I have all the critical think ability of a drunken uni student…just enough brains to realise I am fucking up but too pissed to do anything about it.
Sometimes I can get away with it on shorter WODs or ones with quick turn overs of exercises. But I have been a bit exposed with some of these WODs with serious chunks of reps.
This is not some much about being fit or not fit. I know I am fit, but this is about going up a notch.
Tonight’s WOD was a classic example. Not a good WOD to get pissy and loose. The longer it went the deeper the hole got.
I think the thing I take away from tonight is slow it down a touch, preserve form and be more efficient..settle down Gramps.
12 mins to find 3 rep max Push Press – 80kg. Was more about good form, rather than absolute max. Not too bad.
21-15-9 of 50kg Power Cleans and 50kg Thrusters
Thrusters after Power Cleans. Up yours Tim, seriously dude. WTF? Where you beaten as a child? This was uncalled for!
So I was stinking, blind WOD drunk from about rep 2 of the power cleans with a fierce bent over row going…”I had no idea I was doing it, officer”…that is the classic drunks excuse. Tim was quick to pencil me in for some drills…not sure if they will be before or after the toes to bar clinic.
My jump was good but too much reverse curl.
Then after hitting the cleans here come the heavy thruster. I don’t think anything needs to be said about heavy thrusters.
8:45. Not sure where that sits. I tried to hold onto the bar as long as I could, but that extra thruster weight and having them second just made this as unpleasant as finding a fly in your earl grey tea….yeah that fucking bad!
Oh well, Tim will post tomorrow’s WOD tonight…time to strap on a nappy and grab some tissues.
