Sit-ups & BE's

We got back from the beach yesterday afternoon and I'm beat. Why is it that vacations are so tiring? I guess it was all the drinking and being out in the sun. It was a blast, but I'm feeling a tad bit guilty since I did NO activity whatsoever for 5 days. No burpees, no running, drinking lots of alcohol and eating lots of bad food. I can definitely feel a difference when I'm not eating zone. I just felt lethargic all weekend & I was craving meat something fierce (which was probably due to my low protein intake).

Glad to be back at it... even though I might be dragging my ass this afternoon when I work out.

I figured I'd take it somewhat easy since I've got lots of burpees to make up, so I'm doing a scaled version of the CrossFit.com WOD from 5/14.

Warm-Up:
5 min. jog

44 Burpees
10 band-assisted pull-ups (1 band)
45 Burpees
10 KB swings, 20#s
46 Burpees

GHD's & BE's (scaled to Pack & no GHD):
Four rounds for time of:
20 ball sit-ups
15 Back extensions SUPERMANS instead


Time: 4:26:33

Didn't have it in me to do all of these burpees today. I did reverse order, so I started with 46, then did the pull-ups, then did 45. I'll do 44 tomorrow, and 47. Hopefully this will get me caught up by the end of the week.

I had some pain in my upper back after the burpees & DB swings; I think b/c I was compensating for tired legs:). So, I decided to sub supermans for the back extensions just to be careful.

Might work on front squats tomorrow... haven't done anything heavy in what feels like forever.

It's a little counterintuitive because you might think you should have all this reserved energy from the week of doing nothing, but I find that my DOMS are never worse than directly after the first workout after returning from vacation. (welcome back, btw ;-) )

Try not to hit it too hard today, or you might just put yourself out of commision for a few more days!

welcome back from the beach. :)

It is HARD as hell to come back after a period off of drinking and slacking... but oh well, you need it and don't worry too much, it'll come back. :)

Thanks Rebecca & Jay:). I'm feeling good this morning, so taking it easy was probably the smart way to go.
