Very Frustrating Week-But there is a silver lining!
It all started out on Monday morning when I had to wake up and get dressed to workout at 5AM! Why you may ask...well because I had to be at work by 8am and wouldn't get done until 11pm that night. My workout went well. In fact better than I had thought. But the next 3 days, not so well. Monday-Wednesday I worked from 8am-11pm. My goal was to workout every morning before work but after running around the hospital for 15 hours, a girl gets tired. So I decided to take off Tuesday and Wednesday. I hated it believe me but it was my decision and no one forced my to hit snooze. Then today I worked from 8am-12 noon. Not bad until I worked out. How can I put it...MY WORKOUT SUCKED!!!!!!! Music was great, actually had energy, but I was doing my Max VO2 and my calluses started ripping. So I only got in 10 sets. My plan was at least 20 maybe more. Being so frustrated I went over, grabbed a 24kg and started doing 2-handed swings 15sec on/15 off 10 sets to make up for the snatches I couldn't do.
After all of this, what is the silver lining you may ask? Well, after I finished my 10 sets of 2-handed swings, did some stretching and mobility, I realized this week isn't so bad. I learned 2.5 years ago, after losing my dad, there are more important things to worry about. More important issues to attend to first. These past couple of days I saw two different families lose a loved one and it broke my heart. After working in a hospital for awhile you get good at pushing emotions down because it is your job, but I couldn't this week. So yes I am upset I missed my two workouts (my fault) and yes very frustrating when a workout doesn't go well (happens to everyone) but I woke up today with my husband taking up 1/2 of the bed and my dog Riley taking up the other half...
As Tracy Rif would say (if I may quote) "Today is a good day"
Sorry if I got a little deep, but I want everyone to realize that through training everyone is going to fall or hit a bump in the road, but it is not the end of the road.
