My first WOD back that really made me want to change what I had down on paper......and I did. Afterwards i got to thinking about how it has been so long since doing a WOD that mentally got to me, and in the moments after I realized how quickly we forget our desires when they are easily accessible and easily doable. I have had the desire to do WODs for weeks.....dreaming of them, hoping for them, even trying them when I shouldn't. And here, a WOD I could do and I chickened out and backed off. What does that say about me? I do know ONE thing......I will not do it again.....it made me feel weaker and that it is easy to say what you will do, yet a different story to do it. I am going to chalk it up as a mental lapse of judgement and use it as a reminder of how easy it is to feel overwhelmed and take an easier rout.
Here is what I did:
This was my first time doing this and wanted to start off at 8 MPH instead of the 9 MPH I was doing. It was a little easy and will jump back to the 9 MPH next time....Then:
95# Max Rep Back Squat
Couple Min Rest Then-
95# Max Rep Hang Power Clean
These felt good to do....I then incorporated them into a WOD:
30-25-20-15-10 Back Squat 95#
15 Hang Power Clean 95#
This was the WOD that I changed. Originally, I had 30 Back Squat the whole way through but I realized that my legs would be fried so I dropped 5 reps each set instead. When done I realized.....the whole point is to fry them.....why did I do that. Weakness that is why. Again I learned from it and will be stronger in my WODs because of it. Still a good WOD though.
