For the first time in a while, I felt like my old self today. *Insert shit-eating grin*
Do you ever have those totally un-motivated, super blah days? When you don't really want to workout, but you know you should? That's been me for a while now.
That is, until this morning! I left the gym with a big, fat grin on my face and have been wearing it ever since. My workout started out totally directionless. And ended up totally awesome.
|Not much of a smile, I know.|
... torn apart, chewed up, spit out, nothing left but a heaping, sweaty pile of blubbery muscles.
... one of those workouts when you throw down your (insert CrossFit equipment here) barbell, wallball, dumb bells, or in my case, jump rope ... and collapse on the floor, shaking like Jell-O.
I love double unders. I think I forgot how much I love double unders, until today's little number. I warmed up with some stair sprints, did some lower-body strength stuff (deadlifts, lunges, step ups, etc), and then got into the metcon.
Metabolic Conditioning/Skill training:
10 minutes of 30 seconds on/30 seconds rest
Score total double unders completed
I managed to get 500. Happy dance! I did every 30 second interval unbroken except for the last two, when I was getting a little tired and sloppy and caught my rope once. I discovered that double unders without my iPod are easier, something about hearing the *whip whip whip* of the rope helps me keep a rhythm.
Speaking of, one of my favorite sounds has to be the sound of double unders!
1. Love or hate double unders?
2. What kind of rope do you use?
3. Your favorite sound?
