Today was one of those days. It was a partner WOD (which aren’t my favorite because I can never find partners at my level–see post HERE). I went however mainly because that’s what I always do.
I regretted it.
I should have hit the pool instead.
I was swimming regularly until I got my tattoo and it’s completely changed my swim schedule (you have to wait until your tattoo is completely healed to expose it to chlorine). I have one more session to go in June on my tattoo and then I should be back to normal. But that’s beside the point…
The workout was dumb: 100 cal row, 100 box jumps, 100 deadlifts, 100 wall balls, 100 burpees and back again. Partners of 3.
I felt I didn’t get a good workout. I hate standing around. I didn’t enjoy it. It was all cardio. Which I could have accomplished in the pool.
Yes, there are WOD’s I don’t like. And this was one of them. Unfortunately, you usually don’t realize this until it’s over.
So, on those days of partners, I will be in the pool instead (as long as the timing is right). I’m such an individual competitor. Teams drive me up the wall. The last partner workout I actually enjoyed was one I was with a gal who was a bit above my level and we pushed each other. And this is rare…because at CrossFit, you never know who’ll show up.
