Being new at something usually means you will go through a lot of firsts. Which I got to experience today at the gym and I cannot stop beating myself up over it. We are still new to the CrossFit world, so I know we are still learning.
I have a hard time with a lot of the higher cardio activities - I tend to hyperventilate but mostly with running. I did really well with one work out of 3X 800m runs. That one was kind of a turning point for me and the last time I ran in a workout. Then tonight I guess I took a step back (mentally) from what I thought I was gaining on or maybe tomorrow I will realize I just had one of those days.
After the warm up and doing the skills and strength parts of the workout, we got to the main workout which was 5 rounds of 1 200m run, 6 deadlifts at 95lbs for beginner, which i stayed with because I knew I would struggle with the run and 8 burpee box jumps. I used our normal box which I have never done before, I usually used a few stacked plates but I wanted to push myself on something. Then with that first round I lost my breath on that first run and I struggled through the whole workout. Then everyone was finishing up and I had 4 rounds ticked off with my chalk and then I finished. However, I finished at the same time the gentleman beside me did - and I knew I was behind him. So it bugged me a bit but I was so pooped out I knew something was off but I couldn't put my finger on it. Then when i got home I thought back and realized I missed a whole round. I only did 4 out of my 5 without realizing it. So lesson learned tonight to make sure you mark off your rounds after each one or copy what my hubby did and count down and scratch a round when finished each.
It sucks not doing a workout fully or to the best of ability or not but just doing it. Tisk tisk tisk to me.
