A Tired Friday
It’s been a long two- to three-week run. My diet and sleep have been awful, that latter of which is especially hurt by the fact that I’ve been up late most nights working and waking at the same early hour (between 5:30 and 6:30).
Despite the long and hard run of late, it’s all been really good and fun, even work where we’ve been cranking out some good code. That said, my body was just not quite “there” today. For that matter, neither was my mind!
Today was originally planned as a 25-minute AMRAP. Combining my general state of physical and mental exhaustion and the fact that my week started with a 19-minute AMRAP, I decided to scale today’s back to a 16 minute affair.
I hate doing this but sometimes you must recognize where your mind and body are at a given moment, get your ego out of the way and back off. Easier said than done … at least for me.
16 Minute AMRAP
6 Front Squats @ 45% of 1RM - 117 lb.
8 Pull Ups
10 Weighted Sit Ups 25 lb./15 lb.
Run 200 meters
Result 6 rounds
It wasn’t pretty but it was a fun workout and I’m glad I dragged my ass down and got some work in.
Ready for a rest day and fun Saturday with the pooches!
