Today’s WOD: Push-up (hands on desk) test: 34! I only lost a few reps from before camp. V-up test: 35, which means I can get back to the plan of matching reps.
Then I made up a workout as went along that I could do barefoot. Everything is 10 reps for each side:
- Chair step-ups with 10lb biceps curl
- slow bicycle crunches
- squat to front kick with forward punch holding 5 lb dumbbell
- double side leg raises
- plank rows (5lb the first time and 10lb the second)
I did all that twice with no rest then did 20 more v-ups and 20 more push ups. It all took 21 minutes.
Then I did some stretching and sort of yoga poses. I was able to get to 150 or 160o with a middle split (so maybe I measured with a protractor). I practiced forearm headstands (since I can’t do regular ones any more) on the wall and held it off the wall for 6 counts. My legs were only straight for 1 or 2, but that’s still progress. Eventually I’ll get it without the wall and take a picture.
Next, I did a bridge, but didn’t want to hurt my wrist, so tried going down to my forearms and I manged to do it without falling on my head.
After all that, I scraped for a whole hour (a record!) and finally showered and shaved. I skipped shaving longer than usual because of my bumps. I didn’t cut myself on them a single time. Yay.
I decided I wanted a photo of my bridge thing, so I went outside to do it. I finished just in time because as soon as I went to check it in my camera, my neighbor walked into his backyard. I tried to get another one where I wasn’t looking, but my ring got caught in my braid and I couldn’t get the remote pointed right.
