'cause god knows it ain't my fault.
CAT Deadlift 5×1 @ 95% of Training Max
Plyometrics...this was some hamstring thinggy then 5 jumps over a hurdle
5 Rounds (6)
Bear Crawl down
10 Athletic burpees
Power towel caterpillar down and back (WTF)
Triple Jump Back, jog it out to the end
I was slow warming up into the deads... had to do 315. which I did. In between each dead we had to do that pylo stuff.
I was really pleased that the 315 did not feel all that heavy. I have not been feeling great...my hands are shifting between hot pain and numb. And well, that makes me depressed and moody and scared. I figured I would not do them at that weight when I walked in the gym, but I did....
now for the finger pointing.
The jumping crap. I can't jump...I know that...so I started on the 18" hurdle....
I went back to my bar and was watching Will lift....(he is also dealing with some physical crap) and I remembered something he said to me while I was having a particularly nasty day. I was struggling with a stone and I said something under my breath. Well he heard me...And he shook me out of the head space and I got the stone up. Later he said something to me like...I am not going to let you say "I can't" in front of me.
There are lots of things I can't do in the gym...LOTS...but it reminded me that there is a difference, however small, between I can't and I can't yet....or at least~~I can work towards it even if I never get it.
ANYWAY....I kept watching Will (yea....a gym stalker) and I decided to go higher on the stupid hurdles. I did ask a couple of folks to tell me if I was clearing it or not. By my estimation, I was barely there....so I moved to the 21" ....then the last set of 5 I did at the 27" hurdle.
I know that is no big deal to many of you...who cares right? But yet again, I walked in that gym today KNOWING that I don't jump...I CAN'T jump. But I decided to listen to Will....cause if he heard me say I can't again....sigh.
So it really is Will's fault that I can jump a 27" hurdle.
PLEASE no more jumping paired with heavy dead lifts....ahhhh...
I need a cookie.
