Monday, Jan 4th
4 days into the year and I realise today is my first day in the box this year!
I didn’t check the WOD before heading there so I creep over to the board at 12.20pm to scope it out, before it starts at 12.30pm.
My choices were:
8 min AMRAP
- 10 x wall balls
- 10 x burpees
- 10 x kbs
4 min rest
- 1k run
KELLY (30 min time cap)
I went with option 1… We did the warm up and I got my 5kg ball and 16kg kettlebell ready to start. I made it through 3 rounds and 5 burpees in the first 8 mins, then I managed the 1k run in 6min 21.
I was done 😊… or so I though 🙈
I hadn’t realised there was a small x 2 at the bottom.
So, after another 4 min rest I had to do it all again!!
This time I surprisingly went quicker on the run, despite feeling exhausted! I managed 3 rounds and 10 wall balls in the first 8 mins and the 1k run in 5.23.
Felt good driving home. Lots of energy!
Short lived though… I got home, showered, sat down and stayed there for 2 hours!
If I had closed my eyes, I know I could have slept for hours… but as I haven’t been sleeping at night I refused to have a nap thinking I would sleep like a baby in the evening.
So, why am I writing this now? I should be asleep!!
Went to bed at 10.30pm and haven’t slept a wink. It’s 3am now and I’ve given in. I’ve got up walked around, made a drink and I know tomorrow will be exhausting if I can’t sleep.
The last few years my shoulders have itched to the bone… but only when it’s cold and at night when I try to relax. It’s never been that bad that I can’t sleep though. The last week or so, it has been. I just can’t get comfortable and my joints ache – shoulders and elbows. No idea what’s causing it, but I will be booking a trip to the doctors this week.
Anyway, I have another Crossfit session tomorrow followed by a 5k run with my running buddy, Sabrina! So, I’m going to try force myself to sleep for 5 hours 😴😴😴
