Little Victories are the BEST!
Little Victories - I'll Take 'em!!
I just had to share. I'm currently sitting on top of Cloud 9 as a result of a workout for the first time in a LONG TIME!
15 DB Split Cleans (Female RX 25 lb DBs)
I know that I've done this WOD before, but I refuse to look at my previous time. I'm sure I finished much slower than before "It", but I'm only concerned with doing my best in the moment with what I've got to give right now.
Before the workout, I was just hoping to make it through the whole thing w/o having to go to a band. My pullup performance has decreased a lot recently and I've found that in workouts with more than about 50 pullups, I can only get about 1-2 in a row towards the end w/o having to fall off the bar in between. At that rate, I'd be better off using a band and stringing more together.
Tonight, I DID make it through the whole thing RX.
And the BEST part of it was that I was able to string between 5 - 8 pullups together all the way through the end of the workout! I never got less than 5 in a row - THAT is progress, and I'll take it. Official time was 21:16.
The Little Victories, after such a long time spent going down hill, feel pretty freakin good.
