5. Get a good night's sleep!
I would have thought that after yesterday's very successful CrossFit session I would have slept like a log -- but I barely clocked in 2.5 hours. It was horrible. I just could not get to sleep. I was tired, had no worries, had just had a good day ... why couldn't I sleep. Screw you insomnia!
I was busy doing errands etc. for most of the day but did try to take a nap in the afternoon - I think I dozed for 20 minutes ... definitely not the type of sleep I wanted before going to CrossFit, but oh well. You gotta make do.
I could definitely feel the impact of the lack of sleep on my workouts. We worked on overhead squats - I only managed to get up to 35 kg. I am pretty sure I could have gone up to 40, but my mind wasn't in it and my shoulders were so achy. We also did the split jerks. I got up to 40 kg - tried 45, but failed. Again, I was just fatigued.
Our WOD completely drained me.
4 rounds, 1 min each
- pull ups (just did the best I could)
- box jumps
- tire flips (love those!!)
I was totally knackered. I think I could have fallen asleep whenever I hit the floor doing those burpees.
Oh well. I'm just hoping for a good night's sleep tonight before the start of a very long week.
