Highs and lows in rapid succession

Life is a series of highs and lows. Things go well, then they don't, then they do, and so on and so on........ Sometimes things go great for a while and you are all happy and then something happens and you get slapped in the face. That kind of happened today.

Things have been pretty darn good all week long. I've been hitting my macros and getting my workouts in and I've generally been feeling on top of the world. Then today I attempted 16.3. {slap}. It consisted of 10 power snatches and 5 jumping chest to bar pull-ups. The snatches were easy, I powered through them. The chest to bar pull ups? I got 2. And only because the judge agreed to those. I really got none. Wow, did that bring me down to reality really quickly. I got more down and more down and more down....... I mean really, really down. Like let me go crawl in bed and forget today ever happened, down.

Then, I realized I could handle this one of two ways. I could let it get me down and destroy everything I've worked so hard for this week. Or I could use it as a stepping stone to improvement. I couldn't do those jumping chest to bar pull ups because I have no upper body strength. That I can work on. It won't help me now, but it will pay off in the future. I've been thinking about starting a program where I do push-ups, curls, pull-ups, etc. at home. I think it is time to get that started. I don't want to be a games athlete, I don't even want to do muscle ups, but I would like to be able to do a pull up or two and maybe jumping chest to bar pull ups. So I will add that into my workout for next week. In the mornings I will do some treadmill work, ROMWOD, and an upper body program. Time to build some strength.

Still depressed but at least not as much. Time to go shower and put my cute little skirt thing on.....

Faced my fears
