Stubborn success!

11/3/11

So this is how my Thursday evening went...


After a Crossfit WOD (workout for you non-CF'ers) on Tuesday that included handstand push ups, toes to bar, and ring dips I was left very disappointed. First of all I seriously haven't done a handstand since, well, I was probably 10. The thought of it scared the crap out of me. Seriously. What if I collapsed and broke my arm, my neck, my face, my nose (again) the anxiety was building in my head. I tried a couple of times but had completed psyched myself out so I modified the workout and did incline push ups instead. After finishing the WOD I was left feeling a little bummed. I hate not being able to do something. Granted, I don't expect a handstand push up to come over night, or even in the next month or two, but being able to do one in the next year would be nice!



So, tonight (Thursday evening) I rearranged my hotel room, finding "the perfect" wall. I practiced those handstands until I was almost sick. I was definitely seeing stars and my eyes were starting to cross. But guess what. I've got those suckers down now! There will be NO MORE incline push ups when handstands are supposed to be in WOD's! They won't get me twice!

So I guess being stubborn isn't so bad :)
