I’ve been mostly swimming this week. I skipped a crossfit workout on Thursday because my right quad was really sore. That turned out to be a good call because there were 50 air squats in the workout that day.
I went this morning even though I was out until midnight at the Doctor Who showing.Â I feel tough.
We warmed up with 3 minutes of jump rope practice.Â Then we did 10-8-6-4-2 reps of strict pull ups.Â I did it while pushing my feet off my partner’s thigh.
We did 1 minute each of rocking, flutter kicks, sit ups with our feet on a wall, and russian twists.Â Then we rested a minute and repeated it.
The workout was 7 minutes of:
- 11 deadlifts at 145 lbs
- 11 pull ups
It was ugly.Â I couldn’t get coordinated.Â I did 2 sets and an extra set of deadlifts.
Last Friday I was with a friend I hadn’t seen since I moved here.Â We were looking in boxes and the factory representative said that if we needed any more down he’d get the forklift.Â When I decided I wanted another one I just picked it up and put it on the ground.Â It was about at face height and wasn’t all that heavy.Â I realized that my friend was staring at me.Â “Um… I’ve been doing some…. um…. weightlifting?”
She said, “I see that.”
Seriously they weren’t that heavy but I guess I am stronger than people expect.
I love your story with your friend! How great to have visible results that are all about being strong.
(cool that you saw the Doctor Who showing)
