3rd Inaugural WOD

First of all, tomorrow is a rest day. Let’s just get that out of the way.

Today’s WOD per CFHQ:

Nancy
5 rounds for time of:
400-meter run
15 overhead squats (OHS)
Men: 95 lb.
Women: 65 lb.

I opted for a modified scaled version:

5 rounds for time of:
400-meter row
10 overhead squats

Completed in 16:40.

At first, I thought fer-sure I’d be doing the OHS at the suggested beginner weight of 35lbs. But, no. My OHS squat jumped out the window over a year ago. I can barely get below parallel. So, I opted to use the PVC and squat to a medball. I’m 6″2′ (sometimes even 6″3′) and squatting to a med ball is an act of courage. But, I did it today, each and every time. Granted it was with some measley-peasely PVC overhead, but I’ll take it, bitches. There’s no ego in CF, or is there… Well, there shouldn’t be. Not if you’re doing it right.

When I made it back into the house I finally cooked up the curry cauliflower rice I’d be meaning to slap together since Tuesday of last week (not exactly this recipe, but something similar—there’s a bunch of delicious options out there). By the time it was ready, I was too pooped to eat so put it away for lunch at work tomorrow. That’s the thing about WODing—it kicks your ass. You haven’t much left over for the bullshit, like thinking too much or the obligatory bottle of wine while binge-watching or doom scrolling. You just want to go to sleep. At least I do. And that’s another part of it, once in the routine of the workouts you sleep like a bossperson.

So there we have it.
