Tonight was rough. I went to CrossFit APX tonight, coughing, hacking and wheezing a bit, but asthma be damned, I'm not taking a week off from working out.
Tonight's WOD was 6 rounds for time of the following:
3 Snatches at 75# for the ladies (I used 40)
6 overhead squats at 75# for the ladies (I used 40)
9 pull-ups (I use a resistance band to put my knee in to help me with these because I clearly can't do pull-ups yet).
I finished my WOD in 11:44, with a fair amount of hacking and wheezing. As I was finishing, Baller told me I needed to do 10 more pull-ups, and when I told him I was finished his response was, "DO you know the difference between extra and extraordinary? A little extra." So, I did 10 more assisted jumping pull-ups. What can I say? He was right.
The finisher tonight was 10 50 meter sprints as a group. I hadn't finished the first 50 when the rest of the group started their 2nd sprint. I finished the second spring and my lungs gave out on me. (the rest of the group was finishing their 3rd sprint.) I started coughing and couldn't stop. I had to stop or risked going into a full-blown asthma attack. It was totally worth it to work out. I'll be back Friday, and again on Sunday. I'm thinking I might try to do the workout I couldn't finish a few weeks ago and see how it goes, if maybe I can finish the workout this time.
Oh--and in other news, I'm so excited to say that when I got on the scale today that I was under 260 for the first time in quite a while. I was at 259.8, which is a weight loss of 4.4 pounds. I'm starting to see some serious changes in how my clothes are fitting. Things that used to be tight are now comfortable.
I can't wait for my 18's which I have the most of, to get too big. I'm hoping that I can shrink enough that when its time to pack away my summer clothes so I feel comfortable donating them, rather than packing them away and holding on to them.
Until next time,
