Yesterday was Fran. I haven't done thrusters in awhile as it put a lot of pressure on my spine, particulary the overhead movement, and with that in mind I chose to go really light. It is incredibly frustrating as the last time I did Fran I was 2.5 kg off doing RXd and now I'm doing 10 kg.
Stupidly I decided to do unassisted pull ups to make up for the fact that I was doing such a light weight, not taking into consideration that I have gone backwards in my pull ups as well (at least 2 bands on a good day). I regretted that decision from the get go.
So here are the negatives from the workout:
- I have gone from 27.5 kg to 10 kg thrusters
- I didn't make it under the 10 minute cut off
- As I fatigued I totally lost my kip, I couldn't drive with my hips at all and I wonder if it's connected with my weak core.
- My back felt really good at the end of the WOD.
- I did 45 unassisted pull ups, they were pretty ugly but I did them
- I finished the workout, I didn't want to but I did it. It really hurts to get cut off but to keep going when the clock stops gives me a sense of some sort of accomplishment, like it was a horrible, horrible workout but I didn't let it beat me.
- Even though I feel like I've made a massive step backwards, it has given me that hunger to improve. I need to start working on my kip so I can make it through a workout.
