This is a quick hit and run post, but I had to share this struggle of a morning. The workout was the Avenger…40 second intervals with alternating strength and cardio. We like to call it “super hero training”!
Usually, I love this workout; it’s fun and challenging. Today, it was challenging and miserable and I barely made it through. It was frustrating and I was so angry about it. What the hell? How can I be struggling this much when I’m working so hard, especially coming off a rest day? Even the stations that I typically hit like a rock star posed a serious challenge.
But I gave what I had and then, afterward, I came across this message:
So, in the spirit of my new outlook to focus on the positive, here are some good things I am taking away from my workout struggle this morning:
- I dragged my sorry ass out of bed at 4:42am and actually WENT to this workout
- I did both 40 second rounds of power jacks without stopping
- I hefted two 35# dumbbells during split jerk intervals (not gonna lie…those bitches were HEAVY!!!)
- I (mostly) kept up with my very fast and agile partner during the ladder runs
These are all things I couldn’t do a month or so ago (well, except for the first one). And I did them today.
I wonder what I’ll be able to do by next month?
