Physical Freedom 79/365 - 20220323


Have you ever had a day where nothing in particular went wrong - on the contrary all aspects were average or above - but it just felt shit? A deep down feeling of discontent, dissatisfaction and doom? Well, that was my day. Why? I haven't a bloody clue. Every now and again, although admittedly not for a couple of months prior to today, this happens. Almost always, the next day is fine again, but for that single day, I feel shit. I recognised the signs early on today, and deployed all of my countermeasures to stop it being a catastrophe. Having not lived the version where I allowed a complete shitshow to emerge, I can't guarantee it worked, but if I were a betting man, I'd put today's mediocre outcome down as a victory of perseverance over what could have been much worse. I trained on the 6:30pm class at CrossFit Napalm. I had intended to do some other bits throughout the day, but a day of manual labour on a tight timeline meant this wasn't to be.


Handstand Skill


I spent 10 minutes reminding myself how to walk on my hands, and threw in a couple of 30-40 second holds for good measure.


Kipping and Muscle-Up Skill


I spent 10 minutes having fun. I got a couple of triple touches (1 toes to bar, 1 chest to bar and 1 muscle-up from a single kip) having not done them for years. This cheered me up.
