Never Give Up

Marathon Training With Crossfit Wednesday 22nd January

Today’s Training

The conditioning element is continuous for 5  mins (then 7 mins muscle ups) and although it may look like an easy drill, it’s not. Now the instruction was not to kill ourselves however it still can be a tough little routine. Cruising through it at a pedestrian pace is not something I’m happy doing so I was never going to take that option however some did. I really have no time for half arsed so when I see it it’s best to ignore it.

I’m slow at Muscle Ups and Double Unders right now and still need to perfect the skill but it’s coming albeit slowly. It kind of gets under my skin a bit because I like to get stuck in and train hard. It’s just my definition of “train hard” means a raised heart rate of 180 or above. I don’t get that with Muscle Ups and Double Unders. Anyway, I’ll keep going regardless until I perfect them both.
