HSPU – 151202

Nothing like the recovery/mobility position post WOD, huh?  Tough to stand back up after something like that…


I gotta tell ya, after going out of the way to write a blog post about drinking fluids during a MetCon, I went ahead and made the mistake, myself, anyway…

I was thirsty during everything leading up to the WOD, and as I was warming up I was thinking to myself, “I should go refill my [purple] Nalgene water bottle.”


Yes, I said purple… what do you wanna say about that?  😛


Anyway, I went and filled her up.

Took a little sip, “ahhhh…”

Thought, well, I’ll have a little more…

…a full glass [or more] of water later I had the thought, “crap!  That was probably a bad idea…”


Well, wouldn’t you know it.  I got about 9 minutes into the workout and started feeling like if I kept up the pace I was doing, the water would have surged its’ way back out from whence it came.

I finished the workout, anyway.  I had to slow my pace, of course.  But I share this because I want you to know that I am not immune to doing silly things.

Even after I’ve written about it…

…don’t be so hard on yourself if something happens, yeah?
