I finally did it!


Overcame my my fear of falling over.

Before Ben started us off, I had to double check the box and jump on it since I've never had the guts to jump 24" at PM! I was always afraid of falling off the box! But anyway, I just did one jump and was good to go. All the exercises were inter-related somehow and the fatigue in the joints were pretty nasty too.

Snatches in the 1st round was alright : smooth, fluid and steady. Legs started blistering in the 2nd & 3rd onwards when I had to break up the reps. The pushups made the shoulders bust, also, right tricep tendon acting up again and reverted to "left-fist, right-palm" combo to get through my pushups.

Once the 1-1-1-1 etc push ups were over, the dreaded box jumps came in. Just had to pull through the reps. One by one by one. till all 30 is over! The best was the last set. Did 16, then 14 straight !

On the other hand, the rows were kinda at the starting point for me. Never rowed THAT long before! So I just took my time and focused on the timing of the pull and return. The first 3 mins, I felt in the biceps, then, I engaged more of the legs...and until the end, all I heard was my butt bone/femur top screaming "ow ow ow ow....." as if the glutes were being squashed into the bones. That was really nasty. My quads were so tired that I didn't dare stand up for I might just fall to the ground. yup, just like that. I stretched the quads before standing up. That felt MUCH better after! :)

So yeah! I am happy with today's workout. Yay!
