Well here I am again talking about GOATS…
Pull ups! I am a bit on the weak side with my arm strength to put it nicely #spaghettiarms. I have been safe harboring myself in the land of ring rows for ages. But playing it safe isn’t always the best strategy for reaching your goals. One of my two goats for the year
1. Pull Ups
21 box jumps @ 20″
12 pull ups
Motivated by my upcoming wedding/honeymoon (maybe I’Il talk more about this?)… I powered through my run, fired into step ups while I caught my breath enough to do full box jumps (thanks for the tip to do this coach!) and then came pull-ups… No ring rows for this chick (this time)… With the aid of the big green band I quickly got 6 pull-ups then a mental break and 4 more, then of course I said to self go get those last two!! These inner dialogues took place through the whole WOD.
Do you guys talk yourselves through the work? Do you talk back…? 😏
I finished this Helen-ish gem in 20:33 and coach told me I’m a fast runner ✅ #win
I guess it’s time to think about seriously breaking up with ring rows for real. The last round of Helen approaching 36 banded pull ups total was tough but like the quote above says it’s time for a change 😎
Conquer any challenges lately?
Have a great day!
