And the Bad-assery continues to fade
This morning I had a swim.
Even though the air temperature was warmer, doing the swim at 6am with a cold wind whipping around made things kind of, well. miserable.
I was the only person in the pool. It’s a huge olympic sized 50 m pool. So of course. I thought about sharks again.
I actually struggled a lot to keep myself from having some shark anxiety. I mentioned it to my coach who is an avid diver and I said, ” you know that vacant stare they seem to have?” He added “right before they devour you?” I reminded him I’d never been eaten by a shark. He reminded me I had been, multiple times via imagination. Anyway, I just really hated that swim. Cold. Scary. Never so glad to be just done with it. Plus I was still sore as all get out from tuesday.
This evening, I had a coaching session. It was focused on only a few exercises.
Deadlifts. Really tough. They are SO unnatural.
Maybe not for these ladies.
THe last thing was something I’ve been dying to do…Turkish getups.
I can do it all excepting the actual get up part. Oh it was so crazy. I tried. He helped. I tried again, he demonstrated with 45 pounds, I tried. he bust out laughing. And all my pride went out the window.
Well, here’s hoping by the end of January a little more fitness will have returned!
