WOD (Workout of the day)
21 Wall Balls (20/14)
15 Wall Balls
From the second I discovered the day’s WOD, I experienced an enormous rush! In double time, my pulse raced, as did the blood through my veins. Thump…da…thump…da…thump…da…thump…and so on… Off and on throughout day, the image of the run streamed through my mind.
I asked myself, not really caring for an answer,
“Am I normal?” “Is it normal to be hopeful for a rigorous, physically challenging activity that I know is going to sap every ounce of energy from my body?” I don’t know. I only know that I love the feeling!
It’s been about two weeks since I ran and I’ve been feeling very edgy for a relaxing 10-mile run. I am a non-smoker, but feel like my intense craving to run is similar to a smoker’s crave for nicotine. I need just one more to take the edge off.
This month, I started training for a fitness competition in 2014. To sculpt my body, the training will require more weight lifting but less distance running. A maximum of three miles, no more than two to three days per week is my limit.
To come to terms with the shift in my new workout regimen, I feel the need to take one more long run until I can get back to it next summer. I think today’s WOD may have fixed this for me. LOL!
The WOD was challenging, but I enjoyed the test. I used the 10-pound ball and did the knees-to-chest exercise instead of the toes-to-bar exercise. I’m working on those, but not yet.
I completed the WOD in 33:23. Was this my best? For today… Yes. For tomorrow…Absolutely Not! LOL! Gotta keep pushing!
Enjoy your weekend!
