*must use same weight for KB Swings and Lunges
I again felt the need to push myself last night. I have found that the 12 kg kettlebell was starting to get a little easy so decided to try the 16 kg. OMG!!! Who would have thought that 4 kg could make so much difference, particularly in a short sub 10 minute WOD.
It was really, really hard and I had a few people talking me through it. I looked around at one point and noticed everyone else had finished and I hadn't even completed the 2nd round. I had 2 coaches, Benni and Jardan, counting me down and keeping me going with tips like snap from the hips during the swings ... unfortunately I had lost all ability to snap and just cried that I couldn't do it and the weight was too heavy. But I got it done. It was ugly and I had to drop the weight regularly but I RX'd the workout and even though my legs were shaking and I wanted to curl up in a little ball I also felt awesome that I gave it a crack.
I got home and, as usual, Hubby asked how I went. I started prattling on about how my 1RM is 82.5 kg for deadlift and I did 3 reps 80 kg so therefore that should theoretically increase my 1RM to about 85 kg which, to me, is like a PR. And I also told him about RX'ding the workout. He just looked at me and blinked and then asked me to say it all again but in English. I forget that sometimes it's like another language. LOL!
