Hanging Around

June 13, 2012

FINALLY... my double unders have returned!! What a frustrating turn of events with them over the last few months. I had them I really did... that suddenly it was like they just disappeared! I spent the last 3+ months agonizing every week for my skill sessions working on my double unders it was almost like there were two things I worked on, pullups and double unders. It seemed I just couldnt connect my head to my hands than to my feet. We laughed and joked and pretty much tried EVERYTHING to get them to come back. When its all said and done it goes back to the same old same old... practice, practice, practice...

This is one of the nights where R tried to "tame" the velociraptor... as he liked to call me!


I usually get all stressed out when a double under WOD comes up... and today I went into the gym focused on being positive. The WOD included both double unders AND pullups! Yippie! To my very own surprise, it was a good day for double unders. I finally was able to string them together and relax while I was doing them. This allowed for me to take my time, get all of them Rx and not waste any time getting all frustrated and pissed off, which as we all know does absolutely nothing except waste time.

So, I am a happy girl, my double unders are happening, my pullups are getting stronger... and hey... who wouldnt want to hang around with these clowns at 5:30am every day?
