Karma's A Bitch

Tuesday, June 24, 2008
7w2d to pics--158.5#
Work 6p-8a
Slept 6 hours.

So after bitching and moaning about whiners (Did ya catch that irony there?) in Sunday's post, the heat, humidity and karma bit me in the hand today. The hubby and I got a kick out of it, so I thought I'd share it on the blog. I think my grip for snatches has been a little too tight of late as well, and I think that may also have contributed to the carnage.

We had a crazy busy shift last night, and I felt it this afternoon when I opened my eyes. I was still tired to my core. In the past I would sometimes layout from the workouts before work when I was so tired, but I've come to understand that they jumpstart me better than any caffeine out there. Sometimes, though, I don't feel as strong as I otherwise would with the exercises, and today was one of those days. I was just dragging. I got through it, though and, as always, was better for it in the end.
Double 12kg C&P then row. AMAP in 15 min.
Last time (that I actually did flub this up) I managed 58 in the 15 min. This time I got 59.
12kg Snatch R 1min, L 1 min, Rest 1 min for 5 rounds. Where I usually get 18-20 per side per round, I only got 17-19 this time. Gives me room for improvement.


  1. It would only be bad karma if you were crying about it. Wear it like a badge of honor. Yes it's Eww gross, but its not going to stop you.

    Don't forget (unless you changed your schedule) it's day 2 for push-ups

  2. Badge worn proudly. Washing my hands so much at work last night sucked, though. :)

  3. I know all about it sucking. I used to work as a cook. Had to wash my hand after every order.
