|Goodbye pullups, until we meet again!|
I think this has maybe been the longest span of time I have gone (since learning to do pull-ups) that I've gone without doing them. I miss that beautiful butterfly kip ... The feeling is so gymnastic-y (gymnastics movements have always been my favorite), so graceful and beautiful.
7 rounds for time
7 chest to bar
7 front squats, 95#
Ah, it's been almost 20 days!
But, I would be lying if I said I wasn't enjoying the time off, too. I wasn't enjoying WOD's like I used to. Wasn't enjoying lifting. Wasn't enjoying going on a run. Everything was feeling like a chore. My heart wasn't in it. My heart hasn't been in it since leaving Texas!
So, needless to say, it feels good to get excited! I'm counting down the days when I can get back in the gym, rather than dreading that Monday morning is coming around again. It feels good to know that I'm going to LOSE some of my strength and stamina over the next few weeks recovering, and that I'll have a GOAL again, to fight like hell this summer to gain it back.
I've always liked being the underdog, it gives me something to fight for.
Have you ever had to take time off from the gym/box?
How did it affect you?
