Dizzying Indeed!

I worked out at 9:30 this morning, and (as the title of this blog states) it was dizzying. Spatial awareness, folks.

Weighted Pull-Up (1 rep every 30 seconds for 10 min)

After doing so many pushups yesterday, I knew that this wasn’t going to be easy. I attempted strict pull-ups with 35# (and increased weight to 37# for 6 reps) and I had four failed attempts. Four! I substituted bodyweight strict pull-up for failed reps. Dammit.

Metcon (Time)

5 forward rolls
25/leg grasshoppers
1-min accumulated plank hold/handstand (alternate rounds)
25 Abmat sit-ups

This was a lot of abs. And arms. And arms and abs. I focused on fast transitions. I only completed the first 2 rounds of grasshoppers in unbroken reps, and completed the last 2 rounds in reps of 10, 10, & 5. I held both planks unbroken and completed handstands in reps of 30 & 30 and 40, 15, & 5. Yup, I fell off of the wall with just 5 seconds of handstand remaining. I was able to quickly and easily complete 25 unbroken sit-ups.

Time = 10:18

I rushed out to visit tattoo artist for consultation about sleeve tattoo. And I left without giving him any sound ideas. I had considered a Where the Wild Things Are tattoo, but my gut is telling me no. I want something very colorful and meaningful. I’m leaning toward kettle bells, running shoes, and flowers. Yes, flowers. I don’t really want words or phrases.

I’m at a loss, and this is very much unlike me.

Short blog today. You’re welcome.

I posted this meme. Ha!
