Since I don’t yet have a power cage (which I would rather have than a squat rack; I don’t have one of those either) my main lower body lift is deadlift. I don’t mind that since it’s an easy lift for technique and I typically make quick gains, which is gratifying. The inspiration for this WOD called for 400m runs but I really didn’t feel like running so I subbed double unders.

I almost didn’t work out today, I just wasn’t feeling it. I inspired myself to just try by finding a WOD that had several movements I’ve either never done (Russian step ups) or do very, very seldom (wall climbs). Midway through the strength portion I was still “meh” about it all, but I decided to just push myself through it. The ab roller was lucky to see any action!

I was going to run with Fiona but I was dragging; I hadn’t eaten any carbs yet today and had to really push to finish this WOD. Lesson learned: eat some carbs! Also experienced the “shaky leg”, which is a symptom of not eating a banana that day and not having my electrolytes yet. Overall it was rough.
