Hi lovelies! Hope you’ve had an amazing start to your week. I had a very productive day yesterday at work. We had a new girl has started part time at work too, which is fun. The team is slowly expanding! We had a fun meeting Nicola and I and I feel like we’re getting more and more structure everyday to how we’re doing everything. Part of being involved in a start-up is trying to get all processes in place. It’s really fun to feel like you’re part of shaping something that could be really big one day.
After work it was time for a class at G5. It was definitely not my day workout wise. I think I might’ve not eaten enough during the day because I felt zero energy. The worst was the final WOD when we did 15 minutes on the assault bike between two people.
It was the first time I thought I might burst into tears from fatigue. It was so weird, I’ve never felt that before. We had to take turns doing 10 calories each then 15 and then 20. This was not only a physically challenging workout but also mentally. How determined are you to keep on going? You need to be so focused and disciplined on yourself. It’s so easy to give up whilst to keep on going on you need to have a willpower of steel.
At one point I wanted to keep on going but it felt like my legs wouldn’t listen. The moment the 15 minutes were up I collapsed on the floor. I wasn’t sure if I was going to be sick or not. It felt very close but luckily it went away eventually. I think I laid there on the floor for like 5 minutes not moving. My body had no idea what had just happened to it.
With the WODs out of the way it was time to practise for SFFC (another crossfit competition), I’ve entered it with Faye and Lauren from the gym. Faye asked me if I wanted to do it and I figured might as well since I’ve already done one. We have to do three WODs and we did some stuff today for the first one. It looks really tough. The final exercise before finishing is 15 clean and jerks at 47.5 kg. Very intense! I had not the motivation after the workout to do any clean and jerks. This affected my practice so much, I didn’t believe I could get the bar over my head and therefore I didn’t. You really need to believe you can do it and go all in, otherwise that bar won’t go anywhere.
It’s okay though, everyone has bad training days and yesterday evening was definitely mine. So I went home, made sure to eat loads for dinner and chilled. No point getting worked up about my crappy gym session. Today is a new day and I’m leaving that behind me.
Have a lovely day!
