Wake Up! Time For Bench Presses!
Thursday, May 02, 2013
Maybe the eye doctor is right and I am too old for this crap. I'm having issues with my contacts again... around 3PM each day, they get so dry and cloudy and I feel like I have rocks under my eyelids. It totally zaps my energy, man. There's just something about dry fuzzy eyes that just wipes you out!
I don't have glasses. I broke mine about 2 years ago and never got new ones. I know I really, really need glasses. I've only really been hesitating because in my lab, you can't be in there in just glasses- if you are wearing glasses you must put safety glasses on over them- which is uncomfortable as all get-out. So I would never want to wear my glasses to work anyway! It's a lose-lose. Some people sneak around in just glasses though and I'm not a stickler for rules... especially when it comes to lab safety. Gimme a break. It's a BSL-2. Get over yourselves, people... anyway...
My eyes have been making me so tired in the afternoon. I get a horrific afternoon slump ANYWAY and I just couldn't deal with it anymore! I took my lens solution to work and when I changed for CrossFit, took my lenses out, washed them, rinsed them, squirted that stuff all in my eyes and down my face :P It helped a lot. Then for good measure I splashed cold water on my face for extra wake-up and went to CrossFit PUMPED. And it's a good thing I did too, because this one was killer.
5 rounds for time of:
Row 500 meters
15 bench presses
I have no idea why I was so pumped for this because I HATE rowing! I also found out I hate bench presses, LOL. My chest is pretty weak, it's something I always neglected on my own. Something I really like about CrossFit is it's forcing me to work on parts I skip when I am by myself (chest and core being the main things).
Those bench presses got heavy! I failed several times. The coach was spotting me and I just kept saying "This SUCKS" every time I pressed up. LOL. He thought that was pretty funny... And the rowing sucked.... it all just sucked! :D But as they say- CrossFit: where the fun sucks and the suck is fun!
My chest and arms are shaking. I just know, already, I am going to wake up sore as HECK tomorrow. I just know it. That is what happens when bench presses get heavy and you have basically never worked your chest before.
There is NO WAY I am missing tomorrow!!!! Heavy squats for strength, then a running/air squat WOD! Bring on the leg fire!!!!!!!
