Ughhhh....Work is Interfering with My Training!

Friday, October 12, 2012

The last couple of weeks have been hellacious at the ole J.O.B. It seemed like everyone was determined to sabotage my training. From people's inability (or unwillingness) to make a decision to acting as if we weren't under a tight deadline and that they had all the time in the world to complete their tasks, I have had to miss a number of WODs to get the work done! To say that I was frustrated would be as much of an understatement as saying the Donald (as in Trump) is timid!

I am a team player (well sometimes). But when the team's actions...or inactions...prevent me from attending WOD, all sense of team and the mission go right out the window! To exacerbate the situation, the more aggravated I became, the more I needed to work out...a vicious circle! These are the times I really miss kickboxing...because I definitely needed to hit and kick the bag these past 2 weeks.

I did manage to attend WOD a few times...but I have missed my volume training sessions and all the skill sessions which usually occur during the week. With only being out of Foundations for about 6 weeks, I'm afraid that I will forget the few techniques I do know because they haven't become part of my muscle memory yet nor have been etched into my brain.

However, even though I missed WOD, I did manage to work in some other forms of exercise so I have not been completely inactive. But as I mentioned before, my old standbys (i.e., walking, Zumba, etc.) are not as satisfying!

Hopefully, I will get back on track next week!

    Thx, Nillapepsi. Feel much better today after completing my volume training for pulls ups and my workout of doubleunders, sumo deadlift hi pulls and push presses!

    Hang in there!! In the meantime, do the best you can to get in some activity -- go walk to speak to a co-worker rather than emailing or IM'ing. Take the stairs when you can. Walk a bit on your lunch break.

    I hate when the old J.O.B. keeps you chained to your desk. It's MADDENING!!
