My time for today has been extrapolated as I was cut off at the 40 minute mark. I believe my time was possibly more than that but who can argue with mathematics! My back was a little achy this morning and I didn't feel up to doing 12 kg kettlebell swings so decided to drop down to 8 kg but I had to change that to 6 kg med ball cleans as we had a few newbies in the class. The med ball cleans were a modification for my back. I did 1 round of these and they were harder and took longer plus the squat didn't feel great on my hips. I noticed that the girls who were using the 8 kg kettlebells were either doing pull ups or out on their run when I was in the box so I grabbed one of their kettlebells while it was free for the rest of the workout. I think the med ball cleans were a factor in my slower time today.
The other factor was the pull ups. They were tough. I broke these up too often and wasted a fair whack of time between my sets. In hindsight I should have gone green band today.
The positive for me was that despite getting cut off I completed the number of rounds that I had set for myself. I wanted to get 4 rounds completed and going on my previous time I should have done that with plenty of time to spare.
This is yet another WOD that I have gotten a worse. Yes, I'm injured but I also think that my nutrition has not been great for the last couple of months. I need to focus on eating well again as I feel heavy and sluggish. Onward and upwards!
