Doing a WOD outside on a log cabin front porch!!

Well today was amazing! I decided to go and do something TOTALLY against the grain and against what everyone (my doctors) says I should NEVER do!! (That would be to have fun and enjoy MY life)!!

I went White Water Rafting again for the first time since before I was a mom!! (So yes, I have been before AFTER a major injury!!) I am very cautious to my injuries and to my medical condition and I let everyone who needs to know things, know them…and everyone took great care of me!! We had a blast…not one injury and we coasted perfectly!!! I used my right leg for everything. I took in the scenery and the most beautiful things that God created!!

Then the fun part came….I got back in the car, checked my cell phone and there it was…an email from my beloved coach…my WOD for the day!!!  I wanted to cry!! Because it was 3:30…and I had a 3 1/2 hour drive to my next destination and fit dinner in there before I could even think about doing the WOD for the day! UGH…it wouldn’t happen til around 9PM! By then my body would be shutting down and I knew it!! I already was psyching my self out, which wasn’t good since Coach Kev wanted me to reach at least 4 rounds of my WOD!!! Can I say UGH again!!!

Ok…so here it is…my hell for the day…(I am away from home w/ no gym…so this is all body work)

AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible) in 20 minutes  (target 4 rounds per Coach Kevin)
10 Burpees
20 Situps
30 Push-ups
40 Lunges (each leg)
50 Squats

What I Did: 4 rounds w/ 10Bs, 20SUs & 22PUs (almost 5!!!!)

I did this on the front porch of my log cabin outside while watching lightning bugs and having an audience of people who probably thought I was insane!!! LOL!!!

Well, I need to get some zzz’s and take my meds!! Until tomorrow…. 🙂


  1. Nice Work Sue. There is a LOT to be said about the mental aspect of the training. I had a similar experience with my wod today… after hiking and all that crap today I was beat for my workout but still pushed through. Remember, the mental game in all of this training is the hardest part of it all!!!
