I am slowly feeling better after my second COVID vaccine shot kicked my ass.
This week’s sandbag WOD was not really one that I was looking forward to in any way, shape or form. What it really comes down to is I thought it was a dumb one with dumb movements but I ended up deciding to give it a try. It was surprisingly not that bad for me considering two out of the 3 movements in it were movements I really have as close to zero interest in doing as possible.
I finally feel like I am ready to really push it again with my lifting after having had COVID a couple weeks ago. Granted I had a mild case it still left me feeling pretty shitty and run down. I started working out again about a week ago and have been feeling surprisingly decent with it but still feeling a bit run down. Today, well really the past few days, that hasn’t been the case.
It’s Christmas day now and due to my COVID we’re not supposed to be going anywhere. We weren’t comfortable with it to begin with but my test sort of took that right out of our hands. I never wanted to be a part of the risk others are taking with their poor choices. The other thing that it took away was our max out day that was to be today. I want to recover a bit more before going heavy.
Today being Christmas even Street Parking had programmed a twelve days of Christmas WOD. I originally wasn’t going to do it butt I knew Molly wanted to do it so I did the WOD with her. It was one of the longest WODs I’ve done really for multiple reasons. We did the dumbbell version of the WOD given it took up the least amount of space enabling us to workout together which is always fun!
While I woke up feeling a little tired this morning from going to bed a little bit later and waking up a little bit earlier all in all I felt pretty good this morning. I felt like I had a lot of energy so I thought it would be a good day to stretch out my working out time. First up were the still light back squats and 195 pounds. I felt great doing them and needed very little rest between sets.
I did Street parking’s weekly power and a sandbag WOD today. Since I’m feeling better from having COVID-19 I felt that I needed to make my girlfriend laugh I wore my male romper.
Continuing on my journey of recovering from the coronavirus I did my lifts today. I wasn’t sure how it would go considering the WOD I performed yesterday felt a lot tougher than it should have. I felt good today so I decided to do my lifts. I had thought that I might end allowing myself an extra day of rest between sessions for the time being but I woke up feeling refreshed, more so than I thought I might so I decided to continue getting into the swing of things.
I felt pretty good after my lifting yesterday and my first WOD back the day before so I decided to give the other week’s sandbag WOD a go today. It was shorter than the day’s programmed WOD and I thought it would be more manageable. The WOD was straight forward. It was Sandbag hang clean and presses and then thrusters and finally power clean and toss it over the bench. Five rounds of these movements.
Today I did my first lifting session since I came down with the COVID infection. It went well and it felt great to get back at the bar.
Today I did my first post COVID WOD. It wasn’t a difficult one and I held back a lot on the intensity but it was great to just move again.
I haven’t worked out since last Wednesday, and it really pisses me off. I’ve been taking all the precautions while so many others are just out doing whatever the fuck they want. Not only that, but I ended up coming down with COVID-19.
