Break, Life ...

5:30pm

:30/1:00/1:30
Bridge (last round wheel)
Plank
Bottom of squat hold

10 minutes headstand variation

“Cindy”
20 minute AMRAP:
5 pullups
10 pushups
15 air squats

Couldn't help myself.  Even though I was already worked I wanted to play a little. It has been so long since I did Cindy and even though I was already worked, I took the opportunity to practice bfly pull ups, finished push ups scaled and can't believe that squats felt great! I am attributing it to my balancing morning treks.

17 RNDs in 105 heat and I was only one round short of where I thought I might get. On that note: huge blood blisters on my hands, which I was more distracted with that the workout itself. Darn! I have too much work to be out with hand problems. I can't even remember the last time I tore ... glad I stepped it down a bit though, I am sure that avoided a messy deal. Something I remember about CJs chat was ... are you an athlete who knows when you can push through and when you need to back off of something.

All will be well :)!
