So, there was a little mishap last night. I ran out of my sleeping cocktail that allows me to sleep at night. For those who know me well, then you’ll know since I was really, really young (2 or 3 and on) I have slept the most minimal hours of sleep a human can sleep and still function well. For those of you who don’t know me well, let me explain.
I have seen countless therapists, psychiatrists, neurologists, and sleep doctors in my 22 years of living. After exhausting all of my options, the doctors all congregated (they probably didn’t congregate football style like they do in a team huddle before a game, but let’s just imagine) and said that I have an extremely rare sleeping disorder: one in around 8000 cases of people who are called “high functioning short sleepers”. These are insomniacs who function like a person who gets a full 8 hours of sleep a night.
So, when I didn’t sleep at all last night (and I mean NOT AT ALL), I went straight to Haven to get my wod on. I wasn’t excited really; I felt a little unmotivated and was sore as all shit (a downfall of being someone who never sleeps====VERY poor recovery). I did the wod in what seemed like a daze. I was breathing heavier than usual, I was taking more breaks than usual, and overall it was a bit of a doozie.
Here’s the wod:
5 ROUNDS FOR TIME:
5 powerclean (155/110)
10 Hands Release pushups
5 front squat
10chest to bar pullups
5 push jerks
10 toes to bar
Best part of this were the front squats. They were straightforward, easy, powered right through all of them by cleaning the first rep. I’d say the worst part of this workout was the fact that my body felt very off and I couldn’t find a groove. Oh well. The wod kicked my ass in the best way possible and the soreness immediately set in. Rest day tomorrow, WOOTWOOOOOOOT!
