|My favorite workout buddy and me, Christmas eve|
|Today's WOD at home|
So the Merry Christmas to me part was that I had a workout buddy. My son and I did the WOD together, which totally motivated me to not go easy on myself and really push to keep up with him, which is not easy to do. He beat me by one full round, if you must know.
I thought about it this way--I just tried to replicate the warm-up like we do at the box, but it may have been a little short. It seems to me we usually have two "x2" bits in the warmup. The WOD was was the date, and I just tried to choose strength skills that would work the whole body. Our kettle bells are not as heavy as at the box, so I added plenty of reps, and be sure, by the fifth round, 15 lbs was feeling like a ton. I also did skill work with my jump rope and did 100 reps of single-unders and then tried to achieve some double-unders. I succeeded in getting 10 double-unders, though not all in succession. They came mostly in twos, but this is very exciting progress! I look forward to the day when I don't have to triple my number of reps as punishment!
My goal this week is to still get in at least three workouts, and at least one of those will be at the box, when regular hours resume.
