Yesterday, for the first time after a crossfit workout, I didn´t feel like absolute crap. Don´t get me wrong. I feel great right after a work out. I feel on top of the world for getting through it haha! But usually when I get home I´m so completely exhausted that I just eat and go to bed. But yesterday, even though it was a hard workout, I felt quite good throughout the evening. I even had the energy to watch a movie!
I think my body is slowly getting used to the intensity of the workouts and recovering more quickly :). Feels good! I feel like I could actually do another workout today! But I won´t… ;).
Yesterday the WOD was Barbara. One of “the girls”.
Which means 5 rounds of 20 pull ups, 30 push ups, 40 sit ups and 50 squats. In between the rounds you have to take a 3 minute break.
If you count that up it means 100 pull ups, 150 push ups, 200 sit ups and 250 squats!! Wowza!!!
We had a 48 minute time cap. I did the pull ups with a purple band, which is ridiculously thick. Too thick for me, I almost fly through the roof using it. But all the black bands were taken, so it was either the too thick purple band or the too thin green band. And since I figured this workout would be hard enough I chose for the thick one. I´m happy I did, because I´m 100% sure I wouldn´t have been able to finish if I had used the green band. I don´t think I can do more than 5 pull ups in a row with the green band.. let alone 5 rounds of 20. The push ups I did from the knee.
And these were my times.
As you can see it´s not so easy to do calculations when you´re out of breath haha. I tried to write down the time it took me to do the round (excluding the 3 min waiting time) but I obviously had trouble counting. I think, if my ability to count has come back to me these are the correct times.
Round 1 5 min 15 sec
Round 2 5 min 57 sec
Round 3 6 min 58 sec
Round 4 7 min 7 sec
Round 5 5 min 54 sec
It is funny to see that I was so much faster in my last round than the round before. Knowing it´s the last just gives you that little extra energy you need :).
But what it comes down to is that it took me a total of 43 min 11 sec to do the workout. This includes the 4x 3 min rest.
I´m looking forward to tomorrow´s WOD!! :D
