Physical Freedom 106/365 - 20220419


Today was what I was expecting yesterday, a fucking struggle! Work was fine - productive even - but as soon as I started warming up at the gym, I knew today was going to suck! I went into self preservation mode. This, for me, is a combination of self-coaching, picking the right parts of the class to push, the right parts to hang back, and the right way to warm-up, and also controlling the negative self-talk that tries to take over. With damage limitation plans in place, I cracked on with the 6pm class at CrossFit Napalm.



Squat Clean


Build to a 2 rep max - 120kg.


I twice made the first lift at 125kg, but missed the second. Both times the first lift was comfortable, and the second was definitely on, but I bottled it both times, not getting the bar past the knees.


Every 45 Seconds x8


2 Touch & Go Squat Cleans at 80% of part 1.


I went at 100kg, but missed the 3rd and 6th sets as this is too much volume for me even on a good day right now.


There was supposed to be an EMOM of overhead squats after this. I dabbled, but this was seriously too much so I pretty much sat this out and waited for the workout. I hate ditching parts of classes, that feels like more of a failure than any missed lift ever will, however having tried at well under the prescribed 70%, and still almost failing the paused last rep, it was obvious this battle was not for fighting today.



5 Rounds for Time:


50 Double Unders*

10 Clean & Jerks 40kg

10 Pull-Ups

*Decreases by 10 each round


8:53


This was not fast. I struggled! Normally I'd expect to perform well on something like this, but a whole string of things that were "just off" added up to around 2 minutes [estimated] slower than I should have done this. Chiefly, I just didn't have the energy.

Food


At 7:30am I had 3 bacon rashers, 2 fried eggs, some smoked salmon and some blueberries.


At 1:30pm I had diced steak and cheese.



At 5:15pm I had a cookie - I could feel the funk coming and foolishly tried to numb it with sugar.


At 8pm I had 5 salt and chilli pork steaks, and some halloumi followed by grapes, blueberries, yoghurt and honey.
